CarolCooks2…weekly roundup 13th September -19th September 2020… Recipes, Health, Whimsy, Coconuts and Acapella……

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…Especially for you just in case you missed any posts during the week… whatever your time zone grab a coffee or a glass of wine…Take a pew, get comfy… have a read… I hope you enjoy it!


Relax and Enjoy! (1) Weekly Roundup

Monday always starts with news and my views… always something new to discover…This week was no different…this week was my last post on Climate Change I won’t be banging this drum any more maybe just a triangle times…

However, Wikipedia tells me… The triangle can always be heard clearly above the sound of the orchestra or band…hehe..x


This really is a short week…my muse has gone on holiday…


Wednesday: Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Food Column – Carol Taylor – A – Z of Food ‘R’ for Rice, Ras el Hanout, Rhubarb, Ricotta Cheese and Rice Noodles

I can be found over at Sally’s where she is kindly reposting my series on the Culinary Alphabet where this week it is the letter R…

Of course rice my favourite carb is featured and so much more so please head over to Sally’s for a read and while you are there please say hello…x


My muse is still on holiday…

Fruity Friday: The Coconut…

Where it seems no one cares whether or not it is a fruit, seed or a nut as it is unanimous that it is a deliciously healthy drink and the milk/cream makes lovely curries…

Saturday Snippets :

Where it’s my chance to indulge myself in whimsy not sure it came off without my muse for company…I definitely don’t like how the images look now in the Classic Editor…all designed to make us want to use the block editor…well this lady who normally embraces change is not embracing this…so there… WP…I am going to bring out the Maggie Thatcher in me and tell you in no uncertain terms “the lady’s not for turning”

That’s all for this weeks roundup a rather short week… I do hope you have enjoyed it and I look forward to your comments xx

God bless you all in these turbulent times…especially those of my readers who are affected or in the path of these wildfires in California…Please stay safe…x

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

        Yes the world is crazy at the moment I think 2020 is a year none us wish to repeat however if people don’t comply with guidelines then this virus will continue to invade our lives..I am still reading about people who think it is a fake and masks are a invasion of privacy yet seatbelt wearing and directions on a plane as regards staying seated until told etc are not seen as that..when it suits comes to mind..rant over…Take care, Lauren 🙂

        The world is crazy. My aunt will be 95 in November. For the first time in her life she was unable to attend services at a synagogue for the Jewish New Year. She could not even leave her room in assisted living to watch a Zoom service. It is heartbreaking. The naysayers need to to shook hard.

        I totally agree they just like to complain about anything… something needs to be done…Make them all work unpaid on a COVID ward that will wake them up…Your poor aunt and others like her are the ones suffering from the lockdowns and not the ones who are causing it they are so selfish and inconsiderate…
