CarolCooks2…Weekly catchup…Plastic, Cloud Eggs, B3, Komoto Dragons and Dare to Dream!

Welcome to my weekly roundup time to take a pew, grab a drink, settle down and enjoy if you have missed any posts or if you just like to catch up once a week…

great reads a weekly roundup lady with electronic reader

A mixed week this week with its fair share of news on the plastic and climate change front and the inability of those who can to stop greedy manufacturers and do what needs to be done pronto to stop all this waste and destruction of our oceans and the ecosystem…Yes, I did have an ickle rant…haha

It was then over to Sally’s for her weekly roundup…Lots of news, book reviews, cats and beans…

Eat smart and healthy…Tips and recipes and my views on my new toy my smartwatch…which told me this morning ” You went to sleep at 00.27 last night, which was a little late”…It does amuse me with its little nuances…But I really confused it( for a while) when I had a few cat naps the other night…haha…

Over to Sally’s again for our new series on how to prevent nutritional deficiencies Vitamin B3-Niacin…I am loving this series as I am learning so much about what the food I eat contains and I like to know always have and always will…

Time for my first post on the Ultimate Blog Challenge for April I do let myself in for some things don’t I…But I do love a prompt…The first one was a book review…Food Forensics…Did that surprise anyone?

Time for a rant…No surprises there then…I will be making one all-out assault on clearing my house of plastic and making sure it doesn’t enter my doors again…

Did you know that the humble Cabbage is categorized amongst the oldest vegetable worldwide as it dates back thousands of years? Brassica oleracea, which is the wild forerunner of cabbage, was first discovered in Asia Minor and in eastern Mediterranean regions. Soldiers in Mongolia and China preserved the first pickled version of cabbage in brine.


But it was Beer which holds the title of the earliest recorded recipe…

Cloud eggs…A different way to serve eggs and maybe to encourage children who don’t like the white of the egg …Let them help make them like my grandson did and he never used to like the white as much as the yolk but eats it all this way…

After the busy week, I have had…School holidays…I am surprised any cooking got done so I opted for quick and easy meals…

April’s Ultimate Blog Challenge was one piece of advice you would give …Dare to Dream was mine…

Back over to Sally’s for some wonderful advice and also showing you what delicious foods you can eat when changing to a healthy eating plan…So many beautiful healthy foods…

Last but not least how the Indonesian government is trying to save the beautiful Komodo Dragon from extinction…

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 I bid you 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!
