In all honesty, the year 2012 has not been kind. I am more than happy to start over and celebrate the Chinese New Year, which began January 23rd. Much like my traditional New Year’s Eve celebration, the Chinese New Year begins with a reunion meal including family and friends. Along with celebrating prosperity, peace, happiness and longevity, family and friends traditionally give red envelopes filled with gifts which symbolize good luck in the coming year (I could certainly use some good luck these days!).
From now through February 6th, you can celebrate the Chinese New Year at P.F. Chang’s China Bistro! At the close of the meal, you will be given a red envelope with a special gift inside. But, don’t open it! Bring it back at your next visit and your server will open it to reveal meal discounts or even a free dessert.
If you are not up for a night on the town, you can enjoy the yumminess of P.F. Chang’s in the comfort of your own home! The P.F. Chang’s Home Menu offers a wide variety of noodle entrees including Pepper Steak with Chow Fun Noodles, Grilled Chicken Teriyaki with Lo Mein Noodles, Garlic Chicken with Dan Dan Noodles, and Firecracker Shrimp with Yakisoba Noodles. Tonight, we tried the Firecracker Shrimp and the Grilled Chicken Teriyaki.
The meals are very easy to prepare. Simply open the bag and place the contents in a skillet. Heat for 10 minutes while stirring or until sauce thickens. Immediately, the delicious smell filled our home. In just under 15 minutes, my family and I were gathered around the table eating. Even my two daughters loved the noodles! It is important to realize that each bag serves only two, so we prepared two bags for our family of four and did not have any leftovers.
So if you choose to dine in or out, celebrate the Chinese New Year with P.F. Chang’s! Don’t miss any news or special deals by “liking” P.F. Chang’s on Facebook!
