Sunday Post (58)

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~

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.

I’ve had a rather relaxing week. Me and the boyfriend have been teaching ourselves to cook…I mean we can’t live on microwavable stuff all the time (or my mom’s food), right? It’s been hit and miss…more miss than hit I guess. The food turns out decent but not good enough that I want to go through the trouble of making it…The desserts are by far the best, but we can’t live off of those either. *sighs* Anyone have Gordon Ramsey’s number?

  1. Nice Haul Michelle! How did you score a freebie of Of Poseidon? Lucky! I’ll be interested in seeing what you think of The Storyteller 🙂
    Come see my Sunday Post 🙂
    Have a great week!

  2. Good luck with the recipes – I know it’s cliche, but the more you practice, the better it’ll be. I’m strictly a 30 minute cook myself – I don’t cook anything that takes longer than that to prepare.

    • I wish I didn’t have to practice…though technically at the moment we’re just following rather easy recipes, so in my mind they should turn out exactly like the picture, lol. I guess they do turn out like they’re supposed to, but it’s not tasty enough for me. 😛

  3. I hear you, cooking is a chore! I’m lucky my husband enjoys it so he does it during the week and I do it at the weekend. Stick with quick, no fuss dishes like pasta and rice.

  4. I enjoyed Storm and hope you do too.

  5. I really need to start reading Colleen Hoover! I’ve seen nothing but great reviews of her books.

    And I’m a baker who tries to cook – it’s taken me 10 years to get comfortable so don’t sweat it! I rely on Allrecipes.com for almost everything. For healthier stuff, Sparkrecipes. Good luck 😉

    My Sunday Post

    • I think I used one from AllRecipes.com yesterday. My mom has a ton of recipes from magazines or websites, plus all of the books so we haven’t really had too much trouble finding them…just more about deciding,lol. I’ll have to check out Sparkrecipes though because it’s looking like I won’t be able to deal with handling raw chicken. :/

  6. Hit or misses are the best way to learn how to cook. There are many times where I cook something new and my husband say, that was pretty goo, but can we not have it again. lol… Enjoy your new books. 🙂

  7. I loved Slammed, Point of Retreat, and This Girl! Hope you’re loving them too! Colleen Hoover has quickly hit my auto-buy list!

    Haha…I’m better at desserts too! Shame we can’t live off those, I’d rather eat those than the other stuff too! Balance man…

  8. Sweet haul! Storm was a great read. I still want to listen to a great audiobook. Every time I attempt one, it sucks and get scared away from trying another lol So exited to This Girl! Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

    Our haul

    • Yeah I’ve had hits and misses with them. Anna Dressed in Blood was a good book, but I hated the narrator…I keep trying but I only do it with the freebies or library books. (Too expensive to buy). The BBC Shakespere books are some of my favorites because you’re basically listening to the play with the different actors and sounds.

  9. Some good books here it looks like. I watch all the cooking shows…of course I love cooking but you do learn a lot of tips that help. Happy reading and cooking!

  10. Looking forward to your review of This Girl, I loved Hopeless. Cooking together sounds like fun and keep at it! Have a lovely week:) The Sunday Post

    Even though I didn’t like it so much, I’m glad you enjoyed Slammed – I hope you have fun reading all of your other purchases/the books you’ve obtained this week!

  12. Hehe, good luck with the cooking! Anyone can follow a recipe, it’s just about which recipes work for you the best 😉 You guys probably are super impressed but what you can cook yourself lol. Check out this site too: http://www.budgetbytes.com/

  13. I loved Of Poseidon and Storm. The Elemental series is so awesome!

    You had a busy busy week. I have Colleen Hoover’s Slammed and Point of Retreat scheduled soon so I can read my copy of This Girl. I am curious about that Jim Hensen book. Thanks for sharing. Happy reading!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
