There is nothing worse than planning for a holiday meal or baking all day then to realize that you still have to make dinner that night! We like to keep our freezer stocked up for just these occasions with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pork Dan Dan and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pad Thai that we picked up at Walmart. There is nothing better than delicious restaurant quality food in the convenience of your own home.
We are so busy these days between soccer, dance and music lessons after school that some days it truly feels impossible to have a family meal together I have a few tips to help out on this end.
3 Steps to an Easy Family Meal
Keep Your Freezer Stocked
Every time we go to Walmart we stock up on family favorites like with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pork Dan Dan and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pad Thai. The Chicken Pork Dan Dan is a Sichuan favorite that features delicious Lo Mein noodles, all-natural ground pork raised without antibiotics, earthy shiitake mushrooms, flavorful scallions and nutty toasted sesame seeds covered in a rich and savory brown sauce. A popular Chinese dish!
P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pad Thai is a personal favorite of mine with yummy, tender rice noodles, all-natural chicken raised without antibiotics, tasty green cabbage and carrots, earthy shiitake mushrooms and flavorful scallions mixed with a savory tamarind Pad Thai sauce. Truly delicious.
Schedule it In
Now I know this may seem simple and it is. I write down in our planner the days that we are having dinner as a family. I would love to have this happen every day but realistically that is just not possible. We aim for 3-4 days per week that we have dinner together as a family, no electronics that we can relax, talk and catch-up.
From setting the table to cleaning up everyone helps to make this family meal a priority. The older children help with pouring beverages while the little one sets the table, if everyone pitches in just a little, the whole task goes a lot easier.
We love reconnecting as a family and checking in with school, grades, activities and more. I like to think that when we stop and eat together, the children share more information than our usual conversations.
Be sure to look for with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pork Dan Dan and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Chicken Pad Thai in the freezer section at your local Walmart and stock up today.
