Girls Night Out & Life Hacks with Tai Pei

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Last week I had the best time gathering with a bunch of blogger friends in Dallas for a night of crafting, food, and fun!  The event was sponsored by Tai Pei asian foods.   Not only did we get to sample some of these fabulous entrees, but we learned some seriously cool life hacks.  

As a photographer I know my DSLR camera pretty well, what I don’t know are the nitty gritty basics I learned making a pinhole camera.  Our hostess with the mostess was Rachel Rushing.  Rachel showed us some pretty cool life hacks using our Tai Pei containers.

To make our pinhole cameras we each got a container and covered it with thick black tape so it’s totally light-proof. Then we cut a square on one side of the container and placed a piece of tin can behind the cutout in the box.   After poking a tiny hole in the tin piece we were ready to go outside and develop our photos with special paper, which we later developed.  The whole process was very interesting and now I know how to make a picture without an actual camera!  How cool is that?

We sampled several Tai Pei entrees, and  honestly I didn’t know what to expect because it’s a frozen dinner after all.  I was extremely impressed with the taste and the quality of the food.  Tai Pei frozen entrees come in several different flavors:

  • Beef & Broccoli
  • Chicken Chow Mein
  • Chicken Fried Rice
  • Combination Fried Rice
  • General Tso’s Spicy Chicken
  • Orange Chicken
  • Pepper Beef
  • Shrimp Fried Rice
  • Sweet & Sour Chicken
  • Teriyaki Chicken

Let’s not forget about the dumplings either!

My favorite dish was the Chicken Chow Mein.

Not only did Rachel show us how to make a pinhole camera, she had several other projects that she showed us how to do as well.  Like a pinata fringed candle holder,  fire starter container (with dried kindling in it), and a concrete planter and vase.  We had an amazing time and now I know how to do some pretty cool things recycling everyday items- such as a Tai Pei container.

Fringed pinata candle holder- please use a flame-less candle.

Tai Pei entrees are definitely something I will be serving our family in the future.  Not only did they taste great, but the ingredients were wholesome and filling.  I’m a super busy Mom and Wife and I’m always on the go and looking for an easy and fast meal, this definitely fits into our lifestyle.
