Celebrate The Year Of The Dragon With P.F. Changs

Monday, January 23 is the celebration of the Chinese new year and we are entering the year of the dragon. With that in mind I’ve partnered with P.F. Changs to bring you ideas for creating your own Chinese New Year celebration, starting with their new “dinners for 2” entrees. P.F. Changs is one of my FAVORITE restaurants so I was super excited when I found out they’re now selling Home Menu® items in the frozen foods section of your grocer so you can enjoy them in your own home.

First, here are some ideas for serving your Chinese dinner menu with style:

To serve up a well rounded meal for two, or for a dinner party:

  • To accompany our P.F. Changs meal {General Chang’s Chicken} I made a side salad and picked up some California rolls. Our local grocer makes these California rolls with a yummy drizzle sauce and a crunchy topping. They make a great appetizer or side dish to go with the meal.
  • It’s always great to serve food in fun ways. I put my General Chang’s Chicken on a bed of rice inside a Chinese take-out container – of course!
  • Stamps from the craft store are an easy way to add style. Here I stamped a piece of paper with Chinese symbols and wrapped it around my napkin and chop sticks.
  • A simple Asian style salad was made with mixed greens, shredded carrots, crunchy chow mein noodles, and Asian Sesame dressing.
  • I picked up an Asian soda to serve and garnished the glass with a fortune cookie.
  • Decorate further with hanging lanterns, Buddha figurines, Chinese fabrics, Asian fans, etc.

Now, for the Red Envelope Giveaway: The Red Envelope itself represents another significant tradition in Chinese culture. Red Envelopes, filled with gifts, are presented to family and friends during the Chinese New Year, and the color red symbolizes good luck.

Win one from P.F. Changs by leaving us a comment telling us who is the Dragon in your life {someone who possesses the qualities of confidence, boldness, honesty, generosity, etc.}.

  • 1 Grand Prize Red Envelope includes: A night out at the Bistro with their Dragon + a night in enjoying Home Menu with their favorite Dragon.
  • 14 Red Envelope First Prizes include: Home Menu coupons + Bistro gift cards + co-branded t-shirts.

A total of 15 winners will be chosen!

Entries closed Wednesday, January 25. Winners chosen & announced on Thursday.

My Personal Review:  After consuming the General Chang’s Chicken meal I was seriously impressed.  The look and taste of the food was as if I had ordered from the restaurant and brought it home.  The sauce was little bit sweet & a little bit spicy {my favorite combo}, the veggies still had a crunch to them, and the meat was superior to any meat I’ve had in other frozen entrees – NOT A SINGLE PIECE OF FAT OR WEIRD CHEWY PARTS!

It was very easy to prepare too.  From bag to skillet to plate in less than 15 minutes and without any extra prep {although I did make brown rice to serve it over}.  I can’t wait to try my next bag – Firecracker Shrimp & Noodles!

    My dragon is my mentor and colleague. We have been colleagues and friends for over 8 years now, and she is a person who is confident in her decisions, willing to take risks, generous with her friends and family, and just a wonderful sounding board for both personal and professional issues.

    Oh it is hands down my husband! He is the best and has the best sense of humor too!

    My wife! Hands down. She has been my biggest supporter and cheerleader and I would love to win this for her. She’s the best, even when she is mad!

    The dragon in my life is my daughter Randi. She is not only my daughter but an awesome person. She is confident, hard working, determined, kind and truly cares about others.

    Even though I was born in the year of the dragon myself, my husband is my personal ‘dragon.’ I’m very thankful that he saw how wiped out I was Monday night and boldly, decisively made arrangements to take me out to a quiet dinner so we could talk. Ah, everyone needs a dragon.
