There are definitely days when dinnertime is in half an hour and I have nothing in the works. Those are the days I wish I lived a little closer to take-out, or dine in options! Since neither of those are an option out here on the farm I was thrilled to learn about P.F. Chang’s Home Menu…seriously a scrumptious life saver!

A few years ago I ate at P.F. Chang’s Bistro and loved it but never got a chance to go back until Justin and I happened to be in the big city for a business trip and I insisted we eat there. Remember I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest P.F. Chang’s is four hours from my house so it’s really not an option to go back very often.
You can only imagine how excited I was to learn that I can buy dinners from P.F. Chang’s Home Menu at my grocery store! The recipes are inspired by the P.F. Chang’s Bistro and even co-developed with restaurant co-founder Philip Chiang. P.F. Chang’s Home Menu has created their meals so they are culturally authentic, and they create the sauces and flavors the way you would expect them at the restaurant. Awe…I can get my orange chicken fix without driving four hours!
The other day my boys had the day off of school and I wanted to spend some time with them but I knew they would never want to leave the farm, they are serious homebodies! I decided to stir up some family fun by planning to recreate an eating out experience with them at home.
Of course one of the best parts of eating out is that everyone gets to order whatever they want. We love options! I headed to the freezer section in my grocery store and grabbed several different items from P.F. Chang’s Home Menu. I didn’t grab any appetizers, which I regret and will totally get next time!
Of course there had to be Orange Chicken because it’s my favorite. I love the bold flavors and vibrant colors! It happened to be a huge hit with the boys too! In fact, next time I’m going to grab the Family Sized Orange Chicken Skillet Meal that P.F. Chang’s Home Menu launched in January of this year! I love that it’s made with real orange peel. As it cooks the carefully selected ingredients allow the sauce to caramelize. It cooks in less than 12 minutes! So easy! So yummy!
Since we eat beef almost every day at our house I knew I needed to select an item that included beef. Beef and broccoli was a great choice! I have one little broccoli lover at my house and he devoured this stuff! I also have a broccoli hater at my house and he was super adventurous and even ate his share!
P.F. Chang’s Home Menu just launched their new family sized skillet meals in Chicken Fried Rice and Orange Chicken varieties which is what you reach for when you are the mom of three growing boys or if you have a large family! Did I already mention they now have family sized meals? Well it’s a big deal at my house!
Of course you can’t have Asian food without having Chicken Fried Rice so I grabbed a family sized bag of that! Family Sized skillet meals allow your whole family to indulge in a mid-week adventure! It was so quick and easy to whip up which makes it a perfect dinner solution for those super busy weeknights.
These hillbillies need a little cultural inspiration in their lives! Serving authentic easy food is always a fun way to make a family night out of it!
