CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 9th-15th January 2022-Monday Musings, Health, Ezekiel Bread, Stale Bread and Saturday Snippets,

Welcome to my weekly roundup... 2022 is settling in …we are mid-way through January I do
hope this is the year where we see the end of Covid or find ways to live with it as we do flu and
other communicable diseases…

What is in store for you then this week if you are catching up…  Culinary A-Z was going to be the final one but I decided there was too much for one post so next week will be the final one, Monday Musings, and let me tell you Spam begone and it is singe figures…Friday review and Stale Bread…we should all be at zero in our homes but those stats were shocking at the sheer volume of waste and Saturday Snippets is always a joy to write for me…I hope you enjoy!

Monday Musings…

Whose heart doesn’t melt at the sight of pretty little kittens, puppies or babies…but please allowing them to take over and call the shots…you have to read this …I mean however much you love those kitties that wouldn’t happen on my watch…but then it was on social media…I rest my case…

Culinary A-Z…This week it’s the letters W & X…

This is the last but one post in this series…I have covered the wax coating on many of our fruits and vegetables and their safety, Chowder which is a lovely creamy soup, Arrowroot, Bratwurst Sausages and a few other items with the middle letter of W or X…not an easy one and out of the goodness of my heart I saved Kiwi Fruit for Pete Springer who always contributes to these posts…x

Carol’s Green Kitchen is back…this week was the first post of the year I hope you enjoy it!

Yes, I’m back not with a bread recipe although I do have one all ready for next months Green Kitchen but back with Ezekiel Bread which some of you have tried and not liked or have liked but said it has a different texture to normal bread… all interesting and a learning curve some kitchen hacks and the safety aspects of waxed fruits and vegetables…

My Friday food review was on “Stale Bread” and how it is top of the list when it comes to food waste…in the UK almost 900,000 tonnes of bread is thrown away every year…that is 24 million slices of bread every single day…

That is a travesty when children are staving not just around the world but probably in your home town…In the US (2016) 20% of bread is wasted in kitchens plus 12% in stores that is a lot of bread…

In my house, that figure is 0%...ZERO WASTE…nil..none…ever…every single scrap of bread is used…Do you have zero bread waste or is your household a contributor to those 24 million slices of bread in the UK alone which are thrown away every day…

Saturday Snippets…

Where I can truly unleash my muse because I never know what I will discover…This week it was the word “Year“…

Preparations are underway here for Chinese New Year…The year of the “Tiger“…one-hit wonder “The Year 2525” a song I hadn’t listened to for years…and lots of other trivia …

Saturday Snippets…January 15th 2022…Today’s one-word prompt is “Year”

That’s all for today…Thank you for joining me and I look forward as always to your comments…Have an enjoyable Sunday see you next week xx

    Somehow I have missed Friday, so I am grateful for your weekly roundup, darling. The way I was brought up, in post-war years, was that throwing bread away is criminal. I collect and freeze every little crumb of leftovers, and when I have enough, I make my husband’s favorite – Apple Charlotte.

    A pleasant end of the week. My wife and I just had dinner tonight with a couple of old friends. Lots of laughs, and as we are all fully vaccinated, it felt safe to gather.

    Have a great week, Carol!
