CarolCooks2…My weekly roundup…

It’s Sunday already and nearly the start of another week…It has been a funny week I still think my brain is not quite in gear since the Christmas Festivities …Lots of different things going round and round in my head… Maybe it is the time of year?… Anyway …Take a pew, grab your favourite drink and enjoy my roundup of posts…There is something for everyone …

great reads a weekly roundup

If you are comfortable …Let’s Begin!

I skipped Monday…Just because…

Which meant the first post of the week was all about Christmas leftovers, Will Power, gremlins with some healthy eating thrown in…Well, we do have to ease ourselves gently into the New Year and our New me…Don’t we???

Which eased us nicely into Sally’s post which gave me something to think about…How about you?

Wednesday already and my Cookery Column over at Sally’s Place…Where the cogs in my brain are whirring frantically as to what to bring you this year…Sally bless her has given me time to think…My grey matter is a bit slow at times and in the meantime, everyone was treated to the health benefits of asparagus and some lovely recipes…Who doesn’t love bacon? With asparagus, it is a marriage made in culinary heaven…Just Yummy…

I will say I adore WP’S new colour scheme I do love that fuchsia colour…They are also one of my favourite flowers their perfume is divine…

Next was a lovely recipe that I came across when I thanked Anna for following my blog…I will be making this Potato Peels Pie this week. I also took some time out and watched the film …Not my normal genre but delightful and I think I needed a bit of delightful time.

My next post the first of this New Year over at Esme’s Salon was the next letter in my Culinary Tour of the alphabet…The letter L. What better than these Lamb filled flatbreads.

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

    I noticed you’ve been commenting on headers lately Carol and now I know why! Your header picture caught my attention and I agree with Peggy’s comment, it indicates ideas ion the natural environment. Nice to read your catch up post.

    Headers are tough, Carol. Mine tend to run on too long, but the goal is to catch someone’s attention and get them interested enough to read – your posts are always terrific and leave me with way too many things I want to try!
