Patty Millay is serving up a fantastic and cost-affordable dinner recipe today in our What's Cookin'? segment.  Look, we all know that our coronavirus crisis has been challenging in so many ways.  Our normal lives have been disrupted.  We're being forced to socially distance from family and friends.  Many folks are temporarily out of work.  Money is an issue.

Well, Patty is coming to the rescue with this Dinner from the Dollar Store recipe.

From Patty:

To say that our days are more difficult than they were a month ago is an understatement.  So many of the conveniences that we took for granted are no longer available or affordable.  Everyone is Healthy At Home and keeping away from crowds but life has to go on and you have to get creative to make the best of it.  I've always love the convenience (and the price) of my local Dollar General but now we have a much deeper relationship.  While making a run for milk and bread, I took the time to really look around and I found that I could get a week's worth of groceries at the Dollar Store!  Here's my favorite of the week!


1 lb salad shrimp
1 pkg frozen vegetables
2 pkg Ramen noodles (chicken or shrimp)
Salt and Pepper


Sauté the shrimp, adding one noodle flavor packet.  Add the frozen veggies and bring them up to temperature.  Reduce the recommended water for the noodles by 1/3 and cook them in the microwave for 5 minutes.  You don't want the noodles too runny - if you have too much liquid, drain a little off.

I did a bed of noodles followed by vegetables and topped with shrimp.  It was DELICIOUS!

This took less than 15 minutes to the table and the total cost was $7.00.  For dinner for two, I'll take that any day!

Wishing you all health, peace and something yummy to eat.
