Recipes, Whimsy, Music and Lifestyle Changes…

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…Especially for you just in case you missed a few posts during this last week…It is a lovely sunny and still morning here…and the last day of the month…To say I am pleased is an understatement it’s just suffice to say January is proving to be my nemesis…the month where I am often lost for something to say when I just really want to curse but can’t…I also don’t like to swear and most swear words do offend me…I think it must be my age…Joe knows what to say…

Right…Unlike yesterday when the brain would not engage…my weekly catchup is a doddle brain required so here goes I hope you enjoy the roundup…x

Meatless Mondays …are going well and proving quite popular… I am enjoying my meatless meals and I wish to thank everyone who has sent me tips and recipes to try you are all awesome… I will also credit back to you once I have made them and my taste testers have given their verdict…

Last week it was Tofu…

Thank you to everyone who has sent in comments and recipe ideas…it seems meatless Mondays are a hit…x I had run out of ideas…brain fog again…I reposted an older post on… How to make your own Coconut Oil…

Something not many people would do now it’s just lovely to watch and maybe try it out for that special gift and which also means that a tradition is handed down through the generations as they should be …Enjoy!

Wednesday is the day for my Culinary Alphabet but with a twist where it is words ending and not beginning with a T…



It was also the day when I gave thanks to the scheduling gods….Yeah for scheduling…T was also another easy one as many, many terms end in T…I left plenty for Pete to choose from…



Over to Sally’s to learn how we can turn back time just a little and how to delay the wrinkles…Sounds like a plan to me…xxx If you haven’t already please pop over and say hello to Sally…her advice is easy to understand and action…

I also felt it was time to repost an earlier blog post just in case you missed it the first time round…What is really in your yoghurt?

Friday: my new series on drinks which naturally clean and detox our bodies…This week it was the Bael Fruit which is fast becoming popular around the world and has some amazing health benefits it is also known as the Stone Apple, Wood Apple, Matum Fruit, Bengal Quince and Japanese bitter Orange …

The boy in the video is also so cute and a great presenter for his age…

Saturday: was a nonentity…one of those days…brain fog…so I gave up and cooked and walked…Tomato Soup is my go-to soup and my well-tried sandwich loaf is now a fixture..a family favourite …the loaf I make every other day although this week I must admit yesterday was the first…such was the doldrums that I made them eat…shock horror ..cut bread from the local shop…I did it was that or nothing…

The upside this week was that I have managed to do 10,000 steps daily well not today as I am giving the body a day off… I will walk to the market later and do a couple of turns around the block but I am not pushing for 10,000 steps today…I will also add that my lazy dog…

Yes, you…Saangchai just follows me to the corner then sits and waits until I come back around and then greets me as if I have been away for a month…Lazy Boy…

I hope to be back with Saturday Snippets next week as long as my brain wakes up and gives inspiration this week …

But I feel better now the walking has done me good and I have walked my doldrums off this week …I hope …I would also like to thank all of you for your lovely messages…and chats…I love you all…x

Well, that’s it for today…Thank you so much for dropping by…I hope you have enjoyed the read…if you have please head over and leave a comment it makes my day to hear from you …Love Carol xx

    LOLLLLLLLL I’m still laughing at ‘Joe’s’ swear alternatives. Sometimes you can’t get the full affect with the polite version LOLLLLLL. You managed a lovely round up my friend. 🙂 ❤

      Haha..yes lazy boy he says I’m not doing 10,000 steps…Yes I use coconut oil in cooking and like you have a bottle on my makeup shelf and of course drink the water and use the meat to just eat as it is or cook with it so versatile…Enjoy your Sunday xx

    Haha! Shut the front door! I thought this was going to be a comedy sketch. Great job on the walking. I usually walk 3-4 miles six days per week. I don’t know that I’m getting many physical benefits, but it’s sure good for my mental health.

      It made smile, Pete and I needed it this month…Thank you re the walking I do enjoy it and the scales are on the downward slide but I have cut back on the unnecessary eating and back on my normal diet so hopefully I will be back to my normal weight in a few weeks or so…but I agree mentality I needed it….x Take care and stay safe x
