Happy Monday everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am still trying to be more organized, so I am continuing on with my meal planning. I thought I would share my meal plan for the week.
It really is just a plan. Sometimes things change, and I will adjust accordingly. You know how it is. That’s life! But here is my plan for next week’s dinners:
I will be trying one new recipe nest week – Skinnytaste Crock Pot Enchilada Soup. It sounds awesome, and I have linked you to the recipe, FYI. I love trying new recipes, but I try to keep it to one a week so that I do not get too overwhelmed.
The other recipe with a link to it for this week is the Weight Watchers Pasta e Fagioli Soup. We have made this several times before, and it is awesome! Now as for that link, you may have to have a Weight Watchers membership to view it. I am not sure.
For lunches, I mostly eat leftovers of the meals you see here, or a turkey sandwich. Breakfasts are often posted to my Instagram, and the most frequent ones are oatmeal, scrambled eggs and breakfast sandwiches.
A Note on Recipe Sharing
I love to share recipes! But I am a rule follower to the core. And maybe it is because I have a professional background in legal and compliance! So I only share recipes that are already publicly posted.
I will not share recipes from a cookbook (or a paid membership site) that is copyrighted for two reasons. Number one, I don’t want to get sued! And number two, I don’t feel right about ripping off anybody else’s material. Many people make their living by writing recipes, and out of respect for them I don’t want to be giving their stuff away for free!
That would be like somebody copying a blog post of mine and putting it on their own site. Not cool! And totally illegal too, by the way. Sharing links to my site, on the other hand, is awesome! It brings new visitors to my site and helps me to grow my following. The same goes for other authors and/or recipe writers. I will always share links to the original source, rather than copying it and posting to my own site.
So if you have asked me for a recipe previously (it has happened a few times!), and I did not respond…this is why. I could not find it publically posted. If it is publicly posted by the author, I am happy to share the link. Otherwise I will be happy to tell you the name of the cook book and the page number.
