Do you know that feeling when you come back from a vacation or a mini getaway and are still in vacay mode where you wish the good times didn’t get over so quickly? 

Whenever I come home after an awesome trip, all I want to do is not think about work the next day and cooking is definitely the last thing on my mind. 

With the cooler weather hitting us, we wanted to refresh ourselves and headed to upstate New York last weekend for a mini getaway.

But you know how weekends get over so quickly right? And when it’s a weekend filled with delicious food, gorgeous waterfall and amazing colors all around, you naturally tend to get a little sad after coming home. 

I mean when you get to see views like this, can you blame yourself for wishing that you’d get to stay here forever?

On Sunday evening when we came home after our mini getaway from Upstate New York, my husband was like – “what are we going to have for dinner?” (This is a constant dilemma that most of us face, right?)

Now like I said, cooking was the absolute last thing on my mind. After about 5 seconds I answered – “Ooh we can have some Fried Rice!”

Now if you know me, I’m not the type of person who you would find standing in the kitchen after a 5-hour road trip. The only reason why I could confidently say this to my husband was because I knew my fridge was stocked with Tai Pei Frozen Fried Rice. Now, that my friends, is what I consider being smart 😀

On a previous post, I had shared that how I had loved their Chowmein noodles which were infused with exotic flavors. Since I had already loved that dish so much, I kind of knew that their Fried Rice would be flavorful and delicious.

With white meat chicken, crisp vegetables like carrots, peas, and corn mixed with a flavorful oyster sauce, it was perhaps one of the most convenient and comfort meals I had after a long time. It took me back to my childhood when my dad used to prepare delicious Chicken Fried Rice for all of us.

Just five minutes in the microwave and my Fried Rice was ready. I was so happy with it that I already got 2 more of their containers yesterday during my grocery shopping. I mean it’s just that good. 

I’m not the type of person who normally keeps frozen meals as an option but Tai Pei has really changed that for me.
