Retired No One Told Me, Weekly update…Tamarind, Obesity and Horseradish.

 

Carols Weekly Update 26th April

Quite a mixed bag this week in this weeks update not so many posts. I have lots of ideas but haven’t translated them into posts… I have been trying to do more work on my Cook Book it is taking shape and has lots of recipes so I am now filling in the blanks you all know how I love to chatter …Don’t you?

The first post in this update is my monthly guest post on the Recipe Hunter and this month it was the letter C and surprise, surprise not a chilli in sight… haha… There are Curry Plants, Cloud eggs and much more but I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read it yet.

Next, we have Fruity Fridays which is the lovely Tamarind. This week I have a lovely rare Thai fruit for you… The reason I love it here as I come across some little gems quite by chance and this is just one example…It was sooo hot so we decided to get a tuk-tuk back from shopping..The driver was a lovely old Thai man and he had a bag of fruit in the back of his tuk-tuk and of course being nosey well …lol…Tiny little dark pink fruits like small lychee and being generous like all Thais he gave me some…It has taken me a lot of research and I have found out very little really but all will be revealed tomorrow in Fruity Fridays. An unexpected treat, the other one was my neighbours were picking their mangoes and of course gave me some, one weighed exactly a kilo it is a whopper of a mango…

Carol’s boot camp… Obesity was the theme this week and will be for the next couple of weeks…I happened on a chart and of course, I wanted to see where Thailand came in and the UK …  a few hours later the idea for a post was born  I started with Thailand as it is where I now live and I will be finishing with the top and the bottom of the chart…Comparing eating habits and the types of food per capita… Just a little exercise really… To see if there are any common factors or foods/lifestyles… I hope you enjoy it!

Lastly, it is the Horseradish a lovely plant which when the root is grated it makes a great accompaniment to many foods and also to my Bloody Mary’s… just saying!

    What a wonderful roundup, Carol. Wishing you luck with the Bash award! Kudos on being nominated.
    You just gave me an idea… In the song “Don’t Bring Lulu” that I used to give Hullaba Lulu some personality quirks, Lulu likes garlic and *horseradish* — must learn how it is used in Bloody Marys! Hugs!
