Round 2 of Two Week Meal Planning

Two weeks ago I wrote here that I was going to start meal planning. 
I have to admit that my first 2 weeks of meal planning didn’t exactly go as smoothly as what I had hoped. 
I did my grocery shopping at the beginning of the 2 weeks and I should have had no problems but….
In that short 2 week period I had 2 fridges break. The first fridge was already broken and we had to use the freezer as the fridge but it died and I lost a whole lot of milk and some meat. 
So, back to the grocery store.
We did get a new (well new to us.. used off of fridge and the day after we got it our second fridge in the garage (that had been working fine) gave out and I lost 10 hamburger patties, bread, frozen veggies, 2 chicken breasts, and some pork chops. 
So, back to the grocery store I went. 
Needless to say, I’m frustrated with going grocery shopping and I’m hoping that we don’t have any more fridge problems for a long time! My new/used fridge is working great so far! 🙂 
Here’s what my meals look like for this week and next…
Last time I posted about meal planning I mentioned that I would post my recipe for Chicken Enchilada Casserole but because of my fridge issues I never got around to making it. As long as my fridge keeps working (I’m counting on it to keep working!) and I don’t lose any more food I will post it later on this week. 
Has anyone else been trying out the whole meal planning thing?

    We plan ours out for a month (sometimes two) at a time. My husband only gets paid once a month so it helps being able to buy 90% of the food at once and then just getting dairy/fruit weekly. I'm also trying this month to put up some freezer meals since I have about 12 weeks before our second baby arrives.
