Chipotle Shrimp with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Two nights a week I finish work late so making a meal when I’m only getting home at 7:30 seems like such a horrible chore. As much as I love to cook sometimes I just don’t want to and after work is one of those times. Using this meal-planning app I’ve been able to be strategic about what meals I’m making which nights. So I know that on the nights I finish later I need a 15-20 minute recipe that I can make as soon as I walk through the door. On the nights I don’t have a plan I feel it’s a lot easier to cave into my boyfriend’s Subway request.

I’m happy to say that tonight was my first REALLY fast & really well planned out weeknight meal! I look forward to many more of these 15-minute recipes!
