It’s the peak of season and that means I’m in overdrive with decorating the house, addressing greeting cards, shopping for gifts and stressing out over our big holiday dinner menu.
I’m ready to take break from the all the busyness of the season and slow things down to a manageable pace that will allow me to enjoy more time with friends and family. That’s why I headed off to my neighborhood Albertsons to prepare an easy-to-make meal featuring Pagoda® frozen appetizers and refreshing Gold Peak® tea.
This flavorful duo makes a tasty snack or side dish to enjoy with family after a day of ice skating at the mall, or to serve up when friends pop by for an impromptu holiday open house. I easily found everything I needed in Albertsons’ frozen ethnic food and soft drink beverage aisles.
I decided to go with the delicious Pagoda White Meat Chicken Egg Rolls because they are one of my girls’ favorites. They’re a top choice for moms too because the egg rolls are made with the perfect combination of 100% white meat chicken, freshly-cut vegetables and authentic seasonings that are so scrumptious.
I served them up by putting my own twist on an egg roll rice bowl, featuring jasmine brown rice and a semi-homemade crunchy Asian salad.
This dish goes deliciously well with Gold Peak Green Tea. It’s just the right thing to pair with chicken and it also works well with fish too. That’s because Gold Peak Green Tea is light and refreshing with just the right blend of sweetness to add to your dish.
After enjoying some intentional family time around the dinner table, we looked forward to heading out to a night at the movies as another fun way to bond during the holidays.
Our night out was made easy because I received a Fandango movie reward during my visit to Albertsons. Turns out you get $5 towards a movie ticket, with $10 purchase of participating products in one transaction.
Shoppers will receive a code on the Catalina receipt and will be directed to the Fandango site to redeem the movie ticket reward. But hurry, the offer ends Dec. 31, 2017. Be sure to check out details on the Fandango Reward here.
My visit to Albertsons to pick up Gold Peak tea and Pagoda frozen appetizers turned out to be just the inspiration I needed to prepare a quick and easy dinner, plus a chance to score discounted tickets for our family movie night. Best of all, it allowed me to put a little more joy in the season by hitting the pause button on all of the festive frenzy and taking the daze out of the holidays.
