CarolCooks2 weekly roundup…14th February-20th February 2021…#Recipes, Whimsy, Music and Lifestyle Changes

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… For those of you who celebrate Valentines Day…I hope you had a Happy Valentines Day xx

Enjoyed the chocolate I hope so as it is National Chocolate month… so fill your boots and enjoy! My thoughts turn to Easter with crossed fingers that my moulds arrive in time for me to make a lovely egg for Lily her first…

Let’s go and see what goodies I had for you last week…so snuggle up in your favourite corner with your favourite drink tea/coffee or hot chocolate although depending on where in the world you live it could be a glass of wine…Cheers!

Meatless Monday’s: Week 6…#Frittata.

Such a versatile dish and it uses up lots of bits and pieces of veggies that are sitting in your fridge an ideal once a week meal which means less waste as well…

#Protein Shakes…Should you be drinking them?…

I think you should check out the ingredients before you do and also make sure that you are getting as much protein as you should from your normal DIET and if not because you are following a rigorous exercise regime or a vegan diet AND may need to have protein drinks sometimes…

Wednesday I was also over at Sally’s for my monthly POST…  Carol Taylor’s Green Kitchen – Bread, Homemade Peanut Butter and Home Grown Vegetables and Herbs.

I don’t think I realised just how popular Peanut Butter is…

Time for one of the last posts in this current series of  The Culinary Alphabet with a little twist…Food terms ending in the letter X (loX)

Next week is the last one…The good news is that it will be followed by a new twist of the Alphabet…my fellow bloggers are so kind to me with suggestions and good ones at that…this time it was from Chel Owens…or Chelsea who writes poems at… A Wife, My Verse, and Every Little Thing...Lots of great poetry which I love to read and now and again Chel drops little hints but I truly am not a poet even a bad one…Her suggestion was that I find food terms and food where the middle letter is A for example…Thanx Chel…Like Pete, I will expect at least one word from you every fortnight…xx

I have decided as I am also passionate about the environment to run 2  different subjects consecutively and do a week about so every second week it will be environmental terms, for example, beginning with A etc…although with that I will generally only opt for 3 terms if there are three and explain them in a bit more detail as some environmental terms I know the word but not really what it means…so maybe we can all learn a little more…That’s the plan xxx

    Than you for this great roundup, Carol! I hope you are fine, and honestly i cant get this Buddha Hand fruit out of my mind. 😉 Looks like a little bit extraterrestrial. Lol With proteih shakes i never had dealt with. But lookig at one of the ingredients lists of the industrial produced i had noticed much more sugar as proteins.. One can not be really lucky with it. Will head over to read some of the last postings i had forgotten. Have a beautiful week! Michael
