CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 6th -12th March 2022-Monday Musings, Health, A-Z World Cuisine, Bangladesh, Eggplants and Saturday Snippets where a “Hand” is my prompt

Welcome to my weekly roundup...March has definitely arrived tonight the sky was a vibrant
red which means tomorrow will be another scorcher…
Snow is still falling in some parts of the world…but I am already seeing
images of the first snowdrops that means spring is on the way…Here instead of the
welcome rain the wall to wall sunshine has arrived…
What is in store for you then this week if you are catching up…  My new A-Z  World Cuisines
featuring food from Bangladesh has been very well received I have had some lovely comments
plus it’s fun to research and write… Monday Musings are just some findings from the week
before which I either find amusing or not, … and on Tuesday there was another  Chicken
recipe… beautiful colourful chicken breasts…it is also National Celery Month and this delicious
crunchy vegetable has some surprising uses…

Friday review and the subject was “Eggplants” which I love although I know they are not everyone’s choice of vegetable …Saturday Snippets is always a joy to write for me…and this week it was the “Hands”  all part of the human body…plus there are some fascinating connections to the word ”Hands”…from a hand of cards…to some hands which support a golden bridge …

Right…enough of my chatter…Let’s have look at last week…

Monday Musings!

This week it was a Bookstore Typewriter which was such a cool idea and the response was phenomenal…Part One of “Can fake meat save the world?”…plus what to do if the unthinkable happens..not at all scary but informative a good watch…

Monday Musings …7th March 2022…

I love chicken for so many reasons and one of them is it’s quick to cook…Multi-coloured Chicken breasts are no exception…Cook for one person or ten…Quick and tasty…

A-Z of World Cuisine and this week I visited Bangladesh virtually of course…There were curries and a beautiful seven coloured tea…

CarolCooks2…A-Z World Cuisines…Part 7…Bangladesh…Seven Coloured Tea!

Every day, week Month there is a food day…I only participate if it is a food I like/ eat and this month it is celery…surprisingly it has more uses like being used as a cure for home brined bacon…it is also lovely as a healthy snack with cream cheese or a lovely hummus…a surprisingly versatile vegetable.

CarolCooks2…National Celery Month…Home-cured bacon using Celery Juice…

Eggplants you either love them, Hate them or are somewhere in between…I haven’t always liked them but do like the small ones which I can get here..they are not so bitter or slimy but I did agree with Jim that he has had good and not so good experiences with eggplants and I do think much of it is in the preparation of the eggplant, particularly the big purple ones.

Sally has also reviewed the health benefits of the eggplant /aubergine a post which is well worth the read x

CarolCooks2…Friday Food Review…Eggplant, Aubergine, or Brinjal…

Saturday Snippets…

This week my prompt was ” Hand”…as always I had fun and made some discoveries with the word “Hand”…I was aware there was a handfish but didn’t know much about it…and the songs so many to choose from…I also omitted another of my favourites “If you are happy and you know it clap your hands”…but thanx to Jennie who reminded me and also the Beatles…” I want to hold your hand”…in my defence I have the length of my post to think about and I try to feature tunes I like and maybe haven’t listened to for a while plus the Beatles they are not on my radar often…I know many of you love them…I like them or some of their tracks…I’ll now duck…lol…x I’m more of a George Harrison/John Lennon fan…

Saturday Snippets…12th March 2022…You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist. Indira Gandhi

Thank you so much for joining me today for my weekly roundup…I hope you are all, having a fabulous weekend…I am now of to do Wordle/Quordle and have a catch up of the news…

My thoughts and prayers are also with the brave people of Ukraine and I hope that the rumbles I am hearing about increased bombardments are unfounded or the use of chemical weapons…

        We went from 70 degrees to 19 degrees within a matter of hours. Got a dusting but it stuck! Going to be cold tomorrow too unfortunately but will be back to the 70’s by Friday this week. Bizarre weather!
