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 April…Time is marching on…we had a humdinger of a storm last night was that thunder loud…some heavy metal going on up there …they were certainly kicking up a storm…

A sad start to the week as we lost one of our own…Sue Vincent who will and is already sorely missed… our condolences go out to her sons and grandchildren, Stewart and Ani who must be wondering where her 2 legs has gone…however Sue left her words… such a great legacy for us all… we will never forget and will keep her memory alive in our hearts and souls…R.I.P Sue Vincent…

Just in case you missed any or love to catch up like I do… snuggle deep be kind to yourselves get comfy 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…

This week I made a recipe given to me by Darlene Foster and it was lovely it got the thumbs up all around I will definitely be making it again…Meatless Mondays is getting there in this house although so far I am struggling for this weeks post my heart has been elsewhere…

 

Meatless Mondays…Macaroni and Chickpea Bake…

Simnel Cake…I was so pleased with my first attempt at Simnel Cake and it is delicious…easy to make and if you love marzipan like me it’s a winner…

Fruity Friday…

In my garden my seeds and seedlings…an update.

My little seedlings which I  planted in eggshells are going great getting bigger each day…a couple weeks and I can plant them out…I think using eggshells to grow seeds in is a wonderful idea. The calcium from eggshells is also welcome in garden soil, where it moderates soil acidity while providing nutrients for plants.

The shells also contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which are most vital for healthy growth, calcium is also essential for building healthy “bones” aka the cell walls of a plant…win-win all round and no waste…

Fruity Friday..how does my garden grow…Chocolate Habaneros…

Saturday Snippets…

Of course, there was chocolate and more chocolate also a fascinating video on Sea Otters unlike seals and whales sea otters have no blubber to keep them warm which means they follow an intensive daily grooming ritual to keep their fur in tip-top condition and keep them warm…A fascinating look at Sea Otters and how vital they are to the eco system…

Saturday Snippets…3rd April 2021…

Finally…last but not least…Smorgasbord Blog Magazine weekly roundup…

I think after this week we all need to be kind to ourselves so please keep snuggled up and head over to Sally’s and have a read…Lots of new books and reviews something for everyone and some funnies to put a smile on your face…xxx

    The macaroni and chickpea bake sounds delicious. The Simnel cake looks delicious but I loathe marzipan and when I’m given wedding cake I have to peel it off first!
    I had my second jab on Saturday but if the virus is allowed to run rampant elsewhere in the world it puts us all back at risk as it has the opportunity to produce vaccine resistant variants. It’s a global issue, not a local one. I’m also amazed at the number of people who think Covid-19 is a hoax… 😦

    Another great week in the books, Carol. My wife got the Johnson and Johnson one-shot vaccination last weekend, and I got the first of my two Pfizer doses on Saturday. No side effects for either one of us.

        No choice. We got our vaccines at the same drugstore one week apart and that’s what they had. I think there’s still a lot to be learned about them , but considering the alternative it was a no-brainer for me. Even though I had an appointment and showed up twenty minutes early, the whole process took two hours because there were so many other people there.

    Thank you for reblogging Carol’s interesting post, Sally.
    It’s been such a sad week, what with dear Sue leaving us all tear-stained, and a dear friend of mine dying two days afterwards. Jean Sontag-Wilson was nick-named ‘The Angel of Aldgate’ for her sterling nursing work in the East End of London and continued ‘giving’ for the rest of her life…She was also an excellent author with a wicked sense of humour. RIP both valuable, much-missed women…Hugs xxx

        Thank you, Carol. (Isn’t life strange at times…)I have – more or less – just been ‘head-hunted’ by an art group leader who has been reading my weekly column in the local CBNewspaper, and I’m nearly 89…(mentally 40)! It has quite made my day!! Look after yourself. Good people are thinner on the ground! Hugs x.
