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?
Another busy week. Again there was a bunch of time sensitive assistant work tasks that needed to be done this and I put quite some hours in that this week. Then there was my other assistant work for other authors and Lola’s Blog Tours work as well. I had two tours I organized run this week and I put a new sign-up post live. I also had two more headaches and some shoulder pain to deal with this week.
Besides the work, I made sure to fit in a bit of reading, listening and gaming in each day, but not as much as I hoped. I did manage to make some good progress with my audiobook. Next week will still be busy as well probably.
I tried out a new recipe for butter chicken masala for my boyfriend that turned out well. I also made a no fish version of the shrimp noodle dish that I made a few weeks ago and added broccoli and vegetarian minced meat instead of shrimp, which tasted great. Pictures are below.
My boyfriend had his last week at his current job and will be starting a new job soon, so that will be a bit of a change, but hopefully a good one. And we’re playing a bit of the game Outward again, which is fun.
I again ran into the weird issue where my display port cable for my computer monitor stops working for some reason, I’ve had this happen before and then ended up buying a new cable which fixed the problem. There are some possible explanations on the internet, for now we solved it by plugging in a hdmi cable instead. What a pain these things always happen in the weeks when you’re already busy. Luckily it was an easy fix to still be able to use my monitor as I knew the hdmi cable would probably work as that’s what I did last time. But the hdmi is looking a bit different than the display port and that’s bothering me too. I have some possible solutions to try to make the display port cable work again, so I plan to give those a try when I have some time. And if that doesn’t work it’s time to buy another new display port cable again.
What did I read this week?
Dear Writer, You’re Doing it Wrong was another awesome read, I really like this series of non-fiction books. Very informative, filled with good advice and focus on individual different. Steeped in Murder was a bit of a mixed read, I didn’t really care for the main character and the mystery didn’t grip me and I figured out who the murderer was quite easy. But I did like the characters like Hyperion and the main character’s grandfather. The setting and the tea and tarot shop also were interesting, so I might just give book 2 a try too.
For today’s food corner I wanted to talk about how do you find new recipes? For me my main sources of new recipes are recipe magazines, Pinterest and Youtube Channels. The two grocery stores I come regularly both have a monthly magazine, which is partly promotional and party filled with recipes. I always like going through them and marking any recipes I might want to give a try. Pinterest is also a big source of inspiration for me, I follow a lot of food boards on there and sometimes go through my home page on search for new recipes, usually I then pin them to one of my boards and/or print them out for trying. Or I have an idea of something I like to make and input a few keywords in Pinterest and see what comes up. I also have my own boards where I pin recipes I want to try and sometimes I go through those checking for recipes I haven’t tried yet and see if any jump out at me. I also have some Youtube channels about food and recipes my boyfriend and I like to watch where we get some inspiration and discover recipes we want to give a try. How do you discover new recipes?
