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?
What a week this was. It started with some annoying and stressful things that popped up that I had to deal with, another headache, then a dentist visit and the corona virus that’s now here as well. Luckily I had no caries at the dentist so that’s a bit of good news and the headache didn’t last as long. But it was still a tiring and stressful week. I am still struggling with not getting enough/ good quality sleep as well.
I had a good week in terms for work. I put two new sign-up posts live, one a blog tour for a suspense book and a book blitz for a middle grade graphic novel. If you’re looking for a new read, make sure to stop by my site as I have a bunch of open tours and review opportunities.
And the corona virus is now in the Netherlands as well. This week grocery shopping was just plain weird. Whole aisles were empty, mostly things like pasta, bake off bread, toilet paper, beans and other non perishable foods. Luckily I managed to get most of what was on my list for the week, but it was such a weird sight. I’ve never seen the supermarket so empty. The government also released some new rules to deal with the whole thing, so I think that caused everyone to start hoarding. I went back the next day to get some of the things I was still missing and it was ever worse then with even a lot of the perishable stuff being gone. I hope everyone stays safe!
For a bit of good news again. I tried a new mashed potatoes with leek and bratwurst recipe this week, which turned out great. I included the picture below. I also managed to schedule two new recipe posts and I have now 2 recipe posts scheduled for most of the upcoming months, yay!
What did I read this week?
Gotta Read It was a short and to the point read with a 5 step method for writing book descriptions. Murder at the Mushroom Festival was another fun read in the series. I wasn’t as invested in the mystery as it didn’t grip me as much, but I did like reading about the characters and some interesting information about redwood trees and mushrooms. The Dragon Mistress Book 3 was a great continuation of this series and I really enjoyed it, this one had some danger and some great character and romance development.
For today’s food corner I decided to go with mostly green dishes. Or partly green dishes. I just picked some dishes that jumped out to me due to their green ingredients and hey it matches my blog theme nicely. Mostly they contain things like green beans, cabbage, spinach or broccoli. Tell me about a dish with green ingredients that you like?
- Pasta Salad with Corn and Egg
- Spinach Masala Quiche
- Rice with Tofu and Broccoli
- Spinach Dal
- Spiced Pointed Cabbage
- Green Beans with Chicken
- Creamy Spinach Pasta Sauce
- Sajoer Beans
