Friday Meal Planning + Slow Weekend Ahead

Happy Friday! I don't know if it's because I worked from home yesterday with a sick kiddo, or because I have gotten very little sleep these past couple of nights but, I actually cannot believe it's Friday! It doesn't seem right, but I am sure glad it's here!

Most of my yesterday looked a lot like this:

As for today, my husband stayed home from work (all of us are feeling a little under the weather to some extent) and I went out to meet up with a friend for some coffee and breakfast. I ended up at the library afterward so I could spend some time meal planning for the week ahead. 

Since I am running out to the store for some sick kid essentials before I get home anyway, I figured I would grocery shop for the week ahead while I'm out. So, let's meal plan and grocery list together!

If you were here last Friday, I shared some tips on how I like to meal plan for the week. (Post: Weekly Meal Planning Tips.) So, with all that considered, here's what I've come up with for the week ahead:

  • Tonight: Chicken Gnocchi Soup
  • Saturday: Taco Salads or Taco Pizzas (using leftovers)
  • Sunday: Mindy's Turkey Chili
  • Monday: Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken
  • Tuesday: Leftovers (Chili)
  • Wednesday: Leftovers (Mexi Chicken)
  • Thursday: Thanksgiving Dinner!
  • Friday: Homemade Pizzas

Now that I have my list of meals for the week ahead, it's going to be easy to finish up my grocery list and head out to go shopping!

As for the weekend ahead, we are kind of playing it by ear as far as plans go. We're going to see how Piper is feeling before we make any plans. It may be a slow weekend ahead, which sounds pretty great to me! 

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
