It’s kind of amazing how busy I am these days. I mean, being self employed I’ve always been busy but here lately… it’s crazy. I’ve got a permanent knot in my right shoulder from hefting my arm up on my computer desk for most of the day and I’ve realized the neighbors probably know a lot about me since I’ll work with my lights blaring during night to work on tutorial pics. I, of course, tend to forget to draw the blinds down so they can see every little thing I do.

I’m sure they wonder what this crazy new chick across the street is up to. I lay on my belly in the yard and take pictures of the house… I bring all sorts of crazy things in through the front door of the house… We were definitely the first people in the whole neighborhood to have our Christmas tree blaring at night, which you can see through the windows… I chase down dogs that have run away at 2:00 p.m. still in my pajamas and not wearing a bra, let alone having hair that has been brushed in any way, shape or form…

I love to cook. Love it, love it, love it. But here lately I don’t have the time it takes to cook a meal from scratch. We’ve been wanting pork chops for WEEKS and I just haven’t gotten around to make them, yet. They’re waiting patiently in the freezer for now. But just because we don’t have the time to spend in the kitchen cooking up big dinners doesn’t mean we don’t want to eat cereal every night.

In this super busy time we’ve turned to convenience meals. They’re just so, well, convenient! But not all frozen dinners are made the same, as we’re learning. P.F. Chang’s Home Menu is designed by the founder himself, Philip Chiang and uses authentic Asian ingredients and cooking techniques that you can finish up at home. With quality meat and full-flavored sauces you’re going to love the taste of a vast variety of P.F. Chang’s home meals as well as the convenience. And I’ve got a lovely little recipe for you today to accompany your quick meals. This tasty Asian inspired sesame dressing can be thrown together in a mason jar and given a quick shake. Make ahead in just a few minutes and you can add a salad to your meal without adding hardly any time to  your supper prep time!

    We have a Mexican night and a pizza night, but we have never done a night centered around Asian food. Wok Wednesday would be a great addition to our routine. There are so many ways to eat Asian food that you could literally eat it in some form or another every night and not tire of it. Maybe we could buy the girls a Kimono to make it more festive.

    So glad to see this post because I was wondering if these were delicious! Now I will try them. My tip is to tear up (or cut) your salad greens all at once for a couple of days in advance, then loosely wrap them in a damp paper towel and plastic bag to store. The damp paper towel will keep them crisp and delicious!

      That’s an awesome tip! I used to cut up my stir fry veggies all at once and put a dry paper towel in with them and they seemed to last a good while that way, too. We could have stir fry twice in a week with only one time to prep all those veggies. :)

    We love using the steam-in-bag mixed veggies as a side dish along with PF Changs for a quick dinner at home.
