Easy Shrimp Linguine + Meal Plan

Last week, I adapted a recipe I found in Real Simple’s August issue for Linguine with Spicy Shrimp to make it right for my family and the dinner was met with “yums” and “please make this agains”. I love dinners like this.

Easy Shrimp Linguine

This week’s meal plan

This week, we’re cooking from the freezer. How long has it been since you last opened your freezer to find premade dinners? If you’re working on a plan for your week, don’t forget you can make your life much easier by defrosting leftovers or pre-preplanned and forgotten meals. I’m also headed to Blogher this week, so I’m leaving my husband to fend for many of the meals. (Have fun, honey!)
Monday: Birthday dinner for Little!!!
Tuesday: Burgers, fries and fresh vegetables
Wednesday: Baked Mexican-Chicken Dinner
Thursday: Make your own pizza
Weekend: Breakfast for dinner
