I couldn’t be more excited to talk about the recipe I’m sharing today! Saucy Sesame Peanut Noodles came about for a variety of reasons, most of which revolve around my daughters. Last spring my daughter Madi had the opportunity to travel to Asia, this was a big deal! It was the trip of her dreams and so was the FOOD! She came home raving about noodle dishes, dumplings and all sorts of recipes, none of which I normally prepare. As eager as I am to try new foods, time is usually my issue like so many.

Now we move onto my younger daughter Racquel. She came home from school recently recounting what she’d learned about the Chinese New Year. Mostly she thought it was fun that 2016 is the year of the monkey. We discussed the celebrations and customs which then led to the topic of food. Racquel has just started venturing out by trying new foods. Instantly it hit me that this would be the perfect time to try some Asian-style cuisine.

Recently I had picked up some Tai Pei® appetizers and entrees in the freezer section of my local grocery store. Figured this would be the perfect timing to introduce some delicious Asian flavors with our very own “take-out” experience at home. I decided we’d try some Tai Pei® Pork Potstickers, Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls.

Each of these came with their very own dipping sauces, which is very convenient. Tai Pei® has a wide range of wonderful restaurant-inspired entrees and snacks. They are all convenient and easy to prepare, offering Good Fortune in every Box™.  The multi-serve appetizers were a great choice, I made a few of the egg rolls and placed the rest back into the freezer for another time. I chose varieties which I thought would appeal to my kids and boy did they ever!

To round out this “take-out” experience I made Saucy Sesame Peanut Noodles.  My kids like noodles and peanut butter so I figure I might be onto something they’d devour and once again, I was right.  Such a simple recipe to prepare, you’ll have it on the table in no time which is always good when feeding kids. Now if you have a more adult palate, you can add some spice to this dish with Sriracha or red pepper flakes. I served the noodles warm, but you can certainly enjoy them cold too. They received two thumbs up from Madi, who agreed we have a winner!

With the noodles on the table, I set out a selection of Tai Pei® appetizers and a variety of dipping sauces (kids love to dip) and we had ourselves an adventurous dining experience right at home. Happy kids and a happy mom!
