Culinary A-Z, Coconut Cookies, The Ants and the Grasshopper, Neem Oil, Lemongrass Oil and Music…

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…Time is marching on…

 We are now just into the month of September time just flies…Yesterday was a sad day of remembrance around the world, particularly in the USA…my thoughts and prayers were with you yesterday as was the rest of the world…for those who lost their lives and for those left behind with memories of the horror…God bless you all xx

Last week started with No not a Disney film…but a serious look at how some countries in the world are suffering from lack of water while others have more than their fair share..there is still so much inequality in the world.

Not Disney! The Ants and the Grasshopper…

Imagine living where your village receives an average of 3 Days of rain PER YEAR.

That’s correct ..it’s not a typo…3 Days of rain PER YEAR…

Then you find out that it stems from the burning of Fossil Fuels in countries like the USA…Today I was reading an article on “What’s a Fair Share of Energy?”

Equitable resource distribution requires the world’s affluent countries to reduce their ecological impact while low-income nations gain greater access to resources until there is convergence…it was an interesting read, well researched by a group with leanings towards the left however nothing was found when they were fact-checked and their research is sound…I like to think I have moderate views  I don’t lean too far left or right…but the article was interesting and highlighted differences that western worlds could and should make to help the low-income nations after all the world is all of our homes whatever our circumstances, religion, gender or social standing…

Not Disney!…The Ants and the Grasshopper…

The manufacture of plastics and plastic, when exposed to the elements, releases methane and ethylene – two powerful greenhouse gases that can intensify climate change…

Plastic…The Latest News…Week 6…Plastic releases Greenhouse Gases…

Wednesday I was over at Smorgasbord with Carol Taylor’s Green Kitchen…

Just to recap for those who are new here…This monthly post will cover sustainability, news on food production…changes for the better and maybe a villain or three…haha, a recipe or two including some plant-based recipes, hints and tips on making my household a little greener…aka recycling and composting.

I am loving this series and discovering much…I don’t think you can ever know everything about the culinary world there are surprises to come across…Bunny Chow was mine this month a delicious sounding dish of comfort food…It is a South African fast food often shortened to bunny … it is a hollowed-out white loaf filled with curry…A popular street food…

The Culinary Alphabet…A-Z…The Letter N…

It seems that Coconut Cookies are a favourite with everyone..they are very moreish fresh from the oven…

CarolCooks2…In my kitchen…Coconut Biscuits/Cookies…

Tropical Friday…Banana Flowers…

A familiar sight in Asia either hanging off the tree or found on all the market stalls ..elsewhere in the world they can be found in Asian stores dried and Tori found some tinned ones… on checking online I found Asda in the UK sell tinned Banana Flowers…

Tropical Friday…Banana Flower…

Saturday Snippets…

Welcome to Saturday Snippets where I indulge my whimsy and my passions… maybe a tune or two…something which has caught my eye this last week…just anything out of the ordinary or extraordinary…I am enjoying just taking a prompt from one word it opens up a whole world and never ceases to surprise me as I hope it does you too…

Come with me and see what I discovered…my word today is…Darling!

The prompt was a suggestion on a post I wrote about varieties of Oranges…’ My Darling Clementine”…clever to make the connection, Clive...I was a tad slower…sigh

Let’s see what I found…

Saturday Snippets…11th September 2021…Darling…

Once again I would like to extend my thanks for the emails, messages and calls of support for our dear daughter and for us stuck here at the moment so far away…it helps enormously…Lauren now knows what lies ahead for her going forward it will be a long road ahead starting with 6 months of aggressive chemotheraphy but we hope with support and her fighting spirit she will get through this…on the plus side, her consultant has said she can attend a family wedding in a Cyprus before her treatment starts this cheered her up and she is busy sorting out her wardrobe…Thank you once again I do appreciate all the support…Much love and Hugs xxx

Tomorrow is the start of a new week I hope you will join me for next weeks posts…Have a lovely Sunday…after a  wet and windy week here today it’s sunny and bright xxx

    Thanks for another great week of information and fun, Carol. I’d been wondering how your daughter was doing, but I didn’t want to pry—hugs from California.
