CarolCooks2…Weekly Roundup…Quinine, Quiche, Green Curry and more…

Welcome to this weeks roundup of my posts, as usual, I have a collection of posts a bit like pick and mix something for everyone a potpourri of food and ideas…And of course opinions…haha…A good mixture of posts again this week with some changes which I hope you like…If you are ready then grab a drink find your favourite spot, settle down and let’s have a read…

great reads a weekly roundup lady with electronic reader

Firstly it was Mondays posts which I have decided to intermingle with Thursday’s post as the subject of recycling and waste go hand in hand one thing affects the other or is affected by the other…

Recycling most of us do it some more than others but we trust that whoever collects our recycling then disposes of it correctly that does not appear to be the case…I also looked at the fact that if we recycled all our plastic and everyone done the same it would cause problems so we looked at reusing what we had with some adjustments and then when it needed replacing to find a recyclable option…

It was then over to Sally’s Health Column and her factual easy to understand look at Listeria and how dangerous it can be…Definitely, a must read as it is better to be prepared which you will know if you were a girl Guide or a Scout…

Tie for some Healthy eating which is my tried and tested way of losing weight…I know that no one size fits all but surely it is better to eat some of what you fancy but bearing moderation in mind rather than totally denying yourself anything delicious and giving up when you hit a plateau, have a holiday or night out…

Thai Green Curry

And yes, Thai Green Curry is on my menu and very good it is…I am also on track to mislay at least another pound this week…

Whimsical Wednesdays are a mix of anything I want to share with you …This week it was a luscious Martini Espresso, Two short stories from me and much more…You will have to click on the link to read all about it…Let me know what you think as I am having a little change about…


Thursdays will now be  Treats and traditions from my travels this week it was Thailand and sea gipsies and of course much more…

Once a month it is when I am over @ Esme’s Salon where if you often puzzle over a culinary term then I am exploring those culinary terms which may cause you to frown and wonder what on earth it is…This month it was the letter Q which covered many terms from Quince to Quinine…

gin tonic

Lastly, it was this week in my kitchen where it was what fruit and vegetables are in season in June, some recipes, home recycling and my homemade Chettinad Curry Powder…

That’s all for this week have a great weekend…xx

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!


More and more of my blogging friends have joined me on MeWe…A social media site which is fairly new and which promises much without the restrictions some other social media sites are choosing to impose on many of us…Join me if you will on

      Thank you, Sally, for the reblog but we mustn’t forget your pertinent post on our health and the deadly Listeria virus…Something which has once again surfaced in the news and resulting in some untimely deaths…Worth a read 🙂 xxx
