The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This was a pretty decent week. I got a lot done, but then later in the week I got sick and I slowed down a bit then. The week started off great with lots of work. I had two tours I organized running this week and a media kit for a tour starting next week that I sent out. I put the sign-up post live for a cover reveal later this year. I also did some other Lola’s Blog Tours work and some assistant work for my authors.
I also managed to defrost and clean out my freezer this week, which was really necessary as the ice had build up quite a bit in places. It was nice to have that done and the freezer looks so clean now. I still felt fine Thursday morning and most of the afternoon while I cleaned the freezer, but then slowly started to feel worse and by evening I felt pretty sick. I think I caught a flu. My boyfriend had been sick most of this week too. Friday was the worst of it I think as I am already feeling a lot better now Saturday evening while writing this, but still pretty snotty. I hope that trend continues and I feel better again today.
Friday evening I baked a carrot cake that turned out great. I spend most of Saturday catching up on some minor work things and then spend some time in the kitchen. I made some cheese puff pastry sticks and then garlic naans and pumpkin curry for dinner. Even though I am sick and can’t fully taste everything, it was delicious.
I figured out some extra moments to listen to audiobooks this week and easily got through my current audiobook this week as it was a short one and already started the next one. I also finished an ebook and made progress on my current reads.
What did I read this week?
Two great reads that I finished this week. Broken Girl vs Fix-it Boy was a great sequel, I enjoyed reading about these characters and I can’t wait for the next book. The Queen’s Gambit is a fast paced science fiction story with plenty of action and romance, I had fun reading this one and already started on book 2. The narrator did a solid job with this book.
For today’s food corner I want to focus on “Stampot” dishes. Stampot is a dutch word for a type of dish that contains mashed potatoes and usually at least one other vegetables. Most commonly either sauerkraut, kale or onion and carrots. I have shared a few stampot dishes on my blog. These are perfect for the colder weather.
- Hot Lightning
- Potatoes and Pumpkin Mash
- Mashed Potatoes with Carrots and Onion
- Mashed Potatoes with Sauerkraut and Lentils
- Sauerkraut Casserole
- Hot Lightning

Mistletoe Mishap I got for review from the author, this sounds like it will be a fun read. Wolf’s Bane I bought on release day, I enjoyed the Otherworld series, even tough I haven’t read all the novella length stories. I am curious about the twins their story in this duology. Slaying Monsters for the Feeble I got for review form the author and I am really curious to see how this story continues. I really like the world this author has created and I am looking forward to reading book 2 in the spin-off series. The Book Review Companion I got for review form the author. It’s from the same author who managed to book reviewer yellow pages, I always had my blog listed there and I was curious to see what this non-fiction book would advice about reviews.
