Lent…A 40 Day Fast…What will YOU be giving up???

I have been racking my brains for the last week…

questions-1922476_1920 (1)

I have given up my sundowners ( alcohol) I am on Day 30…If I had waited I could have given alcohol up for Lent…

I have given up my 2 digestives ( Graham Crackers) every morning with my English tea for a few months and even replaced the English Tea with Green Tea…

I have stopped eating the Haribo Teddies 4 nights week…

I have changed my white rice for Brown /Wild Rice…

I have also given up refined carbs and so looking forward to that slice of sourdough bread with grass-fed butter …When my starter plays nicely…

What can I name it…I am looking for a name which depicts awkward or temperamental …A male or female name…Any ideas ????

If you are still with me you will recognise that I have a conundrum…

What the F*** can I give up for Lent???

I should have guessed…After all, I do go on about this subject in great detail…Have you guessed yet????

I bet you haven’t???


This article is brilliant… It solved my problem WHO is going to join me???


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!
