What is Tai Pei?

This post is sponsored by Tai Pei and all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make The Black Barcode possible! 

 Happy Saturday everyone! Today is a busy one for me, I have work back to back so this is the perfect time to share how Tai Pei fits into my busy schedule. As a college student, I am always on the go and on a budget. I don't always have time to make lunch or dinner so that results to me eating out and spending more money, not great when you're trying to save. Going to the grocery store and picking up frozen meals has helped me from eating out and saving time cooking! One of my favorite easy frozen meals is the all-new Tai Pei single serve line of Asian inspired frozen entrees. The nice thing about these meals is you can cook them in the microwave for less than 5 minutes, they have infused rice so not extra cooking and your meal is served, no mess and no dishes to clean because of the convenient microwaveable packaging. They are perfect for a day like today to bring to work and eat!

They have a variety of tasty entrees made with real, pure ingredients and no preservatives or artificial ingredients. I picked up a few different flavors to try, Beef and Broccoli, Chicken Fried Rice, Pepper Beef, Sweet and Sour Chicken and Spicy General Tso. My favorite so far is the Sweet and Sour Chicken because I love pineapple or the Beef and Broccoli. The breaded chicken in my dish was amazing and so tasty! I get worried sometimes with meat in frozen meals because it can sometimes taste soggy, but not in the Tai Pei entrees. It was my favorite part of the dish! I also think the portion size is perfect, it filled me up and so I wasn't snacking. Next time I head to the grocery store I will be stocking up again, it's an easy delicious meal to have around and so much cheaper than eating out!  

I am so glad I discovered Tai Pei single-serving entrees, they are affordable and great tasting! I highly recommend you giving them a try. This coupon gives you $1 off any Tai Pei single serving bowl and be sure to check out Tai Pei's website for additional information, plus you can use the store locator to find out where to find Tai Pei near you! Let me know if you have ever tried them out and what your favorite meal is! I will be sharing more about Tai Pei in more posts to come!

The Fall Suede Jacket You Need {Under $50!}

So, I found this post ready to go from September but never posted it (hence the long blonde hair!). This jacket has been so amazing for the Fall! I did a whole blog post here about this jacket vs an expensive one that is almost identical.  I love this jacket so much I actually got it in the burgundy color which looks sold out right now but you may be able to find it in store! 

I have been so busy ever since school started because I have been working nonstop. Tonight I finally get a day off and am going to a cider mill with Eric! We are going to try and take Chance with us so he doesn't miss out on this fun little adventure. I have been doing a lot of shopping recently so hopefully, you will be seeing more content on the blog soon!
