Cilantro Shrimp Pasta

It’s a good thing I made a meal plan for the month. It’s been a rough month and it’s not even half over. That time change has not been kind to me. The meal plan itself has had all kinds of mixing up. Life has happened — and grocery prices have not pleased me. But, we’re hanging on.

And hopefully eating well this week.

Breakfast Bar:

Turkey Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo



13. Dinner with friends: Roast Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Rolls, Cranberry Sauce

14. Birthday dinner – Kid’s choice

15. Pasta bar: lots of noodles, two kinds of sauce, maybe this Cilantro Shrimp Pasta, garlic bread, salad

16. Asian Chicken*, Potstickers and Sauce, Rice, Stirfry Greens

17. Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Garlic Green Beans

18. Pizza Night

19: Mexibar: taco filling (like leftover roast chicken), toppings, tortillas, taco shells or chips

  1. My meal planning has really taken a beating so far this month too. I’ve bounced meals all over the place. Just went and did my big monthly grocery trip and I agree with you. Seems like everything gets more expensive each time I go. It definitely makes staying on budget more challenging.

  2. Looks like you are having an early Thanksgiving – yum! Last week we had a lot of ‘life happens’ so I still had quite a bit of groceries left over which was good. I was a little unorganized in my shopping this week and have already had to send my son out to pick up something I forgot!

    Here’s our menu for the week.

  3. Thank goodness I plan my meals out a month at a time. I am too busy week to week and day by day to have to worry about what to make for dinner! I think too that groceries are getting higher and Walmart and Aldi are not always the cheapest. It definitely pays to have a price book and know your prices.
    Here’s our menu for this week:…of-november-14/

  4. just put a whole chicken in the oven to roast for tonight’s dinner. plan to make stock in the crockpot tomorrow which will be used in homemade chicken noodle soup. that’s as far as i’ve made it with a menu plan. thinking a baked potato bar for tomorrow night with salad might be a good thing too.

  5. Glad to know I am not alone in my shock at grocery prices. Yikes!

    Here is our meal plan:

  6. I’m with you – on grocery prices AND the craziness of life lately…

  7. You’re not alone, friend. Crazy life, overly stretched grocery budget left me to plan with only what we have at home this week-and my stockpile is growing smaller. The only thing I will need to pick up later in the week is a bag of potatoes for Potato Chowder.

  8. I’d love to know how you stir-fry your greens and which greens you use. I’m looking for new ideas for veggies. Getting tired of variations of green beans and broccoli. I feel like we eat both at least once a week.

    The cilantro shrimp pasta looks delicious. I’m bookmarking that for a later date!
