CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 8th -14th May 2022-Monday Musings, Health, Food Review “” and Saturday Snippets where “Glass” is my prompt.

Welcome to my weekly roundup…The month of May …a spring month in the northern half of the world, and a fall month in the southern half. It is likely named after Maia, the goddess of growth. May’s birth flower is the lily of the valley. May is the fifth month in the Gregorian calendar and has 31 days…May has many food months…National Asparagus, Egg, Salad, Salsa and Strawberry Month to name a few…all foods I love which means there will be some recipes…

Monday Musing’s are where I share any posts which have resonated with me over the last week or bits of news or maybe even a song…in this post, it was a little about the animals who are coming out of hibernation like the hedgehog and how we help by feeding then=m as they are natures deterrent and love to eat the critters who love to eat your carefully tended greens…

A beautiful song and a fabulous idea on how a lift can be installed on listed buildings and buildings that may not conform to the perfect shape for wheelchair access…plus the conker tree and candles…

Monday Musings…9th May 2022…Hedgehogs and Stars…

I promise no dragons were injured during the cooking of this dish…it is a lovely stir fry with a little bit of spice…with a side of one of my favourite vegetables…broccolini.

Today I joined Sally on her posts about cooking from scratch to avoid nutritional deficiencies…This week it was Magnesium…

My mother always had a store cupboard as have I…even if you have just the basics it ensures you always have the ingredients to make a meal it especially comes in handy if you are shopping your fridge and need some herbs and spices or if you are making a new recipe there is nothing worse than getting halfway through and you are missing an ingredient it may be that your store cupboard holds an alternative to that ingredient which saves you buying something which either doesn’t store well or maybe you wouldn’t use it often enough to warrant the cost…

This week in my kitchen…Store Cupboard Basics…Part 1…Flours and Sugars…

Processed food is any food which has been altered in some way during its preparation. Some examples are freezing, canning, drying and baking…

Not all processed food is unhealthy as we will learn in this post but many do contain high levels of salt, sugar and fats added to extend the shelf life of foods and make it more palatable. It is also very easy to consume far more than the recommended daily levels because many people do not read labels or labels can be misleading and a single item of food can be called by a few different names which can make it quite hard for the consumer…

CarolCooks2…Friday Food Reviews…The Definition of Processed Foods…

Saturday Snippets…

Glass…if we look around us we can see probably more than one-way glass features in our home and kitchen…windows and shelves, mirrors and ornaments, photo frames, glass jars and bottles…then of course there is the fancy glass the beautiful hand-blown glass, stained glass windows…it is also reusable and recyclable but that’s for another post…

Saturday Snippets …14th May 2022…Today’s one-word prompt is “Glass” inside a Snow Globe

Thank you so much for joining me today for my weekly roundup as always I look forward to your comments…I hope you are all having a great weekend xx

    I missed the store cupboard post, but it’s interesting that I have thought of it, and I don’t think I can make a meal out of it. My freezer, though, that’s a different story. I just don’t cook out of boxes and cans. I guess I am old-fashioned.
