CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 12th- 18th December 2021…Culinary A-Z, Music, Recipes and more…

My Culinary A-Z is nearing the end of the alphabet…Christmas Music featuring more
versions of “Silent  Night” plus Christmas recipes and more…

I cannot believe how fast we are speeding towards seeing in another New Year …this week has been a funny ole week not much happened in the kitchen towards the festive jolly on the 25th… Right now, there are  7 days until Christmas 2021! …Jeez, that crept up…

Welcome to my weekly roundup...This week last week has been a little colder again in the mornings and darker but the days have been warmer the chillies are ripening well and the bananas are plenteous …

What is in store for you then this week if you are catching up… some more versions of “Silent Night”…Christmas Recipes,

The week started with a  Christmas rewind from Sally over at Smorgasbord…for the remainder of the week, it was some reblogs and I just winged it the rest of the time…I didn’t even cook very much just made a chicken and mushroom pie and some sausage rolls from the leftover pastry… some weeks are just blips when nothing much gets done and this was one of them…but Hey Ho please tell me it can only get better…

With special guests and the catering done by moi…Thank you, Sally, for sharing my mince pies and a lovely egg nog recipe from which I found a recipe for Advocaat something I haven’t seen for sale here and also haven’t drunk for many a year but have suddenly had a fancy for …my age I’m guessing …

Cooking your first turkey can be pretty daunting unless you have been around a kitchen all your life as it is generally a tad bigger than cooking a chook for two …Which is why we have also included a cooking calculator for a turkey and a step by step guide to cooking the perfect turkey.

Turkey is also healthy meat to eat...It is first and foremost a lean source of protein – 4 oz. gives you 65% of your daily protein requirement and has about half the amount of saturated fat that red meat does.

Please head over to Smorgasbord where Sally will tell you all about the benefits of including turkey in your diet…#recommended read.

Day 4 of The Twelve Days of Christmas...with Sally’s special guests …the food today is some lovely warming Carrot Soup and some Champagne to wash it down please head over to Smorgasbord to read about today’s special guests and their favourite Christmas present…it is where Sally treats us to her tales of Christmases past and believe me when I say some of them are highly entertaining and will bring a smile to your face…#recommended read.

Saturday Snippets this week featured “Merry” as my one-word prompt…I do hope you enjoyed reading the little gems I found which had a connection to “Merry ” it was an interesting word to research…

Here’s just a little something to bring you some cheer it certainly brought a smile to my face…

    It can only get better. Hang in there, and enjoy your holidays – however they end up being celebrated, and whatever else is going on.

    Also, thanks for featuring Lilie and Logan. Hope their photo helped to brighten up your week.

    Hoping you have a festive week, even if most of the family is unable to gather. Have an extra glass of egg nog on me. We’ll be back to shedding those unwanted pounds after the holidays.
