Hi friends! Thank goodness we’re on the homestretch to the weekend! Woo-hoo! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m so ready. Even though this was a short week it was still too long. 🙂
So we’re keeping things short and easy and continuing our theme of easy weeknight meals. It doesn’t get much easier than shrimp and pasta!
We usually have this dish a few times a month because it’s so easy. Throw in a salad or a vegetable and you’re good to go! Actually, sometimes I just toss some fresh broccoli into a colander and pour the hot water – pasta and all – over it. It steams up just perfect and you have a complete meal!
Who doesn’t love an easy weeknight meal that can be put together with little effort? Sometimes we plan and sometimes I just send Chris a text asking what he wants to have for dinner. I have to admit that it’s much easier when we have planned ahead! Sooooo……
I want to remind you about my friend Raquel’s Guide to Meal Planning. Raquel is a blogger from My California Roots and she wrote an ebook Guide to Meal Planning. She gave me a copy to review (and I’m totally going to put it to good use) and I’m super excited about it.
The guide includes:
- Templates for meal planning
- Recipe Keeper Spreadsheet (which is awesome and helpful!)
- Meal Planning Toolkit
- A mini book on tips for creating the best meal plans ever
- Extra goodies!
The guide is just released this week and is only available until Friday. I honestly love this Guide to Meal Planning and would totally recommend it even if it wasn’t published by my friend! I am 100% confident that it will be a life-saver for anyone with a family to feed and for people who want to keep to a healthy diet – which is always easier when you have your meal plans in place so that you’re not hitting the drive-through on your way home from work because you didn’t plan.
I highly recommend you go check out Raquel’s Guide to Meal Planning. To do that, click here: Guide to Meal Planning
