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…we are now well into March…yesterday was the first day of spring if you are in the Northern Hemisphere… lambs, snowdrops, daffodils all signs that spring is here please keep those images coming and the snow I have seen some pictures so those who are experiencing minus temps snuggle up and stay safe and warm…and for those who are experiencing high winds and lashing rain batten down the hatches and stay safe and warm…

Let’s go and see what goodies I had for you last week… 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…#Brocolli Stems…

The best part I love them lightly steamed and as long as you trim of the woody outer then you will find the soft tender part of the stem inside…

Why Meatless Mondays?…a meatless any day you choose is fine it just makes more and more sense to cut down the meat we consume…

I have since discovered that you can also make Brocolli Rice has anyone tried that???

National Artichoke Day…

Among all the absolutely trivial days and there are some of them…a day like National Artichoke Day pops up and it serves as a reminder that Artichokes are indeed a lovely vegetable, low in fat, high in fibre with a nutty taste…beautiful to eat…it seems that many of you are in agreeance with that…Thank you for the hints and tips xx

Time for my new series…

The Environmental A-Z… letter B.

Welcome to my new series…still an A-Z but with a difference …it’s not food-related!

In the meantime, the idea for this series came about because yes as my regular followers and commenters know I am passionate about the health of the world I am living in… however often when I am researching and reading articles I come across terms and have to look them up which spawned the idea for this…two-fold… it increases my knowledge and I hope yours…

Now it’s time for week 5 in my kitchen where I am going to share with you my tried and weekly tested Indian Spice Mixes…

Roasted spices Indian cooking

spices for Indian Curry

I do not profess to be an expert in Indian cookery but I try to use authentic ingredients and as I live only 2 hrs and something flight time away I can source authentic ingredients…I make my own bread not all of it I plan to try making paratha soon …I make my own chutneys and we love them…The spices I make as I buy quite large packs of spice and I get a faster turnover plus no fillers and chemicals which makes me happy…

Fruity Friday’s…Thai Purple Melon…

I have now received my melon plant and it has been potted and we shall see how quickly it grows…it is smaller than I had hoped but it will grow …My very pretty looking Rainbow treasure chilli seeds are in the post and today I ordered 2 mini banana trees they only grow to about one and a half metres high which is good…

Saturday Snippets…

The heavens have just opened…a humdinger of a tropical storm…The thunder is loud no lightening yet…at least it will cool it down as its another hot one today…Blimey, that one made me jump…
