CarolCooks2…weekly roundup 28th June June-4th July 2020…Climate Change, Recipes, Whimsy, and Chocolate…

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…I hope you are all staying safe and well…and social distancing…Let’s take a pew and have a read… I hope you enjoy it!

Relax and Enjoy! (1) Weekly Roundup

Monday always starts with Climate change as there is always something new to discover…This week was no different…Recycling and Climate Change… 29th June 2020…

In this post, I looked at factory farming and how it could if unchecked be the source of future pandemics and how by changing our meat-eating habits we could prevent this…I and my family eat meat as well as lots of fruit and vegetables both cooked and raw…I also believe we should eat a varied diet and apply moderation for certain food groups

 

 

I have made a promise with some prompting from my readers to give my opinion on them and I will when I come across one of the products…There have also been some readers comments which I will share tomorrow…Others topics discussed was the Circular Economy, solar and dirty seas…

Tuesday was the day for some recipes…Eggplant, Garlic, Horseradish and a Mai Tai…

You may think that is a strange combination however there are lots of National Days and months relating to food…There really are…Today is the last day of the National Eat your Fruit and Vegetables Month as well as the last day for the National Eggplant, Garlic and Horseradish Month…It is also National Mai Tai Day today…and why not?

Therefore I am going to share my favourite recipes using the above vegetables and fruit and after that, I will surely need a Mai Tai…Just saying…

Whimsical Wednesday with CarolCooks2…

A day where I indulge my whimsy…this week not so much I don’t know why but most roads led back to Covid-19 and I just didn’t want to go there…but I found some delightful teddy bears and some music…

Wednesday was also the day where I shared Sally’s new Project 101..Today she discussed Vitamin D…

Thursday…Time for some Food Therapy from Sally@Smorgasbord Health.

This week it is on the benefits of watercress…I love egg and watercress sandwiches and the childhood memories it invokes…High tea on Sunday with shellfish and crumpets and of course cake or Salmon, watercress and egg sandwiches and of course cake or scones with jam..homemade of course…It appears my mother knew the benefits of feeding us watercress.

In this post-Sally will tell you all about the health benefits of watercress coupled with a lovely watercress soup recipe and she has kindly linked to my recipes using watercress….

 Friday in my kitchen..how to reduce kitchen waste…

I was taught by my nana and my mother how to cook and to never waste food and it has stayed with me all my life I, in turn, taught my children and hope they are teaching theirs…It has many benefits as there is the knock-on effect of saving money, having tastier, healthier meals with no preservatives or fillers…Reducing food waste not only helps the environment, but it’s also an excellent way to save some extra money and time.

A win, win situation…and you will always have delicious, healthy food ton your table…

Saturday Snippets…

This week there was some delightful wildlife ..the saga of dead man’s fingers continued but a tad more enticing as in a tipple of rum…

God bless you all in these turbulent times…be safe and stay well…

My hopes…for the future…

When this is all over my hope for the future is a cleaner world… I do want to see communities, and caring for your neighbour becoming the new norm…WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER…Being kind to each other…Loving someone whatever their religion or skin colour…Can we make this happen? We have to but in the right way…Are we willing to make a stand? Personally, I would love to see lessons learnt ..realistically I have my doubts…

Thank you for reading be well and stay safe xxx

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 well being.

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!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all stay safe and healthy xx

        Okay, that is very strange. When I tweeted your posts, @the RealCarolT came up as your name. I added the other name too just in case. Wondered if you saw a double tweet on same post with the 2 different names. So weird! ❤
