Sunday Post (21) - Writing, Reading, Running

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

If you participate, and you totally should because the community is amazing, don't forget to link up and if you leave me a comment, I will definitely check out your blog.

The Rules can be found here. And this week's post can be found here.

We've had pleasant temperatures, a bit of rain but also some sun, just the way I like it. We're busy with our running and cycling and yesterday Camp NaNoWriMo started, so I'm busy writing as well. Another doctor visit is scheduled for next Tuesday, so hopefully I can remove all the unnecessary anxiety from my life soon.
Here a picture of the brioche buns (recipe can be found here) I made last week, that I told you about:

Last week on my blog:
Last week in the cinema: It's sunny and warm and bright and I haven't been in weeks... I should really find the time to again, I miss films.

Last week in my kitchen: I found out that broccoli is so much better roasted than simply steamed. Probably taking a bit of the health away from the green vegetable, I'm sorry, but it's so delicious. Toss the florets in a bit of olive oil, add salt, and bake for 20-30 minutes (turn them once) until the broccoli is crispy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside.

Currently reading: Why can I not for once read just one book like a normal person? I'm reading the first book in the Riyria Revelations, plus Perdido Street Station, Gardens of the Moon, The Eye of the World and Watership Down (though I can't bring myself to care about those bunnies!).


  1. Oo I love roasting broccoli! I like to sprinkle Parmesan on them right when I take them from the oven and then it melts a little by the time I eat them.
    I thought about doing Camp NaNo ((I've done NaNo for years)) but I thought that my July was busy enough as it is-- maybe next year!
    My sunday post

  2. Yay for Camp NaNo!! I'm not participating this time, but I'm going to try work on my novel anyway. Hope the writing goes brilliantly :)

    Ooooh you always make me hungry!! Those brioche buns look delish!

    Have a lovely July, Olivia :)

  3. Roasted anything is delicious. I love broccoli. Good luck with the writing event and those brioche buns look yummy!

  4. Good luck w/ Camp NaNo! And those brioche buns look yummy. And great idea for vroccoli- have never done that. Gonna try it though!

    Wow lots of reading going on! Hope they're all good. :)

  5. I love broccoli but have never tried it roasted. I will have to give it a try. Have a great week!

  6. I may have to try your recipe this week!

  7. Hope your latest appt. went well today. Those brioche buns are gorgeous. They would have been perfect with the barbecue brisket we had last night. :) I love roasted broccoli - almost any roasted veggie, actually. Just seems to make them better.

  8. You should watch Dunkirk in the cinemas once it comes out! It'll be coming out at the end of July I believe!

    I gave your blog a follow, and I would truly appreciate it if you could check out my book reviews blog located at and possibly give it a follow as well! Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!

    Hmm, I'm about to cook broccoli this evening so maybe I'll try it roasted rather! Thanks for the tip!

  10. yay for pleasant weather. Makes you want to do MORE :) I wish I could say I'm busy writing too but.. vacation.. so word count... ZERO :( I hope your doctor visit went well!
