How To Plan A Date Night In ( Budget Friendly)

This post was sponsored Tai Pei, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
 The last few weeks have been extremely stressful. From work deadlines to blogging campaigns, sick kids and a house that's a mess, I was thinking I needed a break. Zach and I had planned a date night but our sitter canceled at the last minute so we had to improvise on what we could do and what we had in our house. I wanted to make it somewhat special because we haven't been able to spend too much time alone the last few weeks so I proposed a few things for us to set up a date night in ( and that was budget friendly ! ). 

The first thing I thought of was needing to have a few minutes to set everything up for just the two of us. Zach offered to bathe both kids, read a few books and put them to bed while I got to work downstairs. #Winning! I set the table but not just with ordinary utensils and plates-- I found our wedding china to make it a little more elegant. Add a few candles and voila, a romantic setting just for two!

Since I didn't have a lot of time to figure out what to prepare for dinner, I needed something that I knew we both would enjoy and could help us out in a time crunch! Tai Pei Frozen Fried Rice to the rescue! Often times when I think of a "quick meal" like this, I realize that it probably isn't going to be the healthiest of meals. Tai Pei actually uses pure and no preservatives which include great tasting entrees with each single serving! I found these meals in the freezer section at my local Walmart!

While I grabbed a Tai Pei out of our freezer, I loved that I could just put it in the microwave for a few minutes thanks to their new packaging. Tai Pei Asian Food entrees has a variety of choices made with flavor-infused rice such as Beef and Broccoli, Chicken Fried Rice and Orange Chicken.

Once the entree was heated up, I place them on our plates, lit the candles and poured a glass of wine for us to enjoy. I forgot how nice it was to enjoy just a delicious meal in the comfort of our own home after a busy day. Although we adore being parents, it's important to us to find time along ( which we end up chatting about the kids still ha ) and stay connected.
We loved the idea of enjoying an easy meal in our home! The best part is you can save $1 using the coupon of your favorite Asian Foods. Don't forget to check out more information about these yummy meals and how you can plan a fun, easy and delicious date night dinner in minutes!
