CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 19th -25th June 2022-Monday Musings, Health, Food Review “Real food v Processed Food” and Saturday Snippets where “Grace” is my one word prompt.

Welcome to my weekly roundup …Wow, I can’t believe we are in June already halfway through the year…June is the first month of astronomical summer in the Northern Hemisphere and astronomical winter in the Southern Hemisphere…the roses are showing their pretty heads here plus it is the flower of the month June alongside its fragrant sister the lovely honeysuckle…

The first day of a new week …we have a tortoise I think it is the most appreciated gift I have ever bought anyone…I never knew a tortoise would be so popular although she is lovely and surprisingly very fast as she explores her new home…

Monday Musings…20th June 2022…

These beautiful Jerk Chicken with Pineapple Skewers are ideal if you have BBQ weather and if you don’t then you can do them under the grill just wrap some foil around the sticks…

I love writing an A-Z and this one is no exception…Sally from Smorgasbors Magazine is very kindly repeating/rewinding this A-Z ….today is the first in this series the letter A featuring almonds, aubergines, arrowroot and avocado…Please head over to read the original post by clicking the highlighted link below…

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Carol Taylor’s – Culinary A – Z Rewind – Almond Milk, Arrowroot, Aubergines dip #Thai and Avocado Guacamole.

A well-stocked store cupboard can save you money and time as there is nothing worse than being halfway through a recipe and finding out that you have not got one of the ingredients..local shops are generally more expensive and for smaller amounts…When stocking your storecupboard you can shop around at your leisure for good deals…

This week in my Kitchen…Store Cupboard Basics…Part 7…Vinegars, Sauces and Condiments…

I use mayo to make prawn cocktails or potato salad maybe on burgers when I make them for the grandchildren plus homemade mayo is so much nicer…I then don’t have guilty feelings about the poor baby chicks who are sacrificed for a jar of mayo…

CarolCooks2…Friday Food Reviews…Mayonnaise…The Reality!

As you know Saturday Snippets is one of my favourite posts to write…” Grace” was a joy to write …I love the song “Amazing Grace” especially when it is played on the bagpipes…Grace Bay Beach looks absolutely divine and Grace Darling really was a heroine…

Saturday Snippets…25th June 2022…Today’s one-word prompt is “Grace”

Thank you, Clive, for the heads up it was not your iPad it was me having so much fun catching up with my family and friends and I forgot to update the weekly roundup…I hope you are all enjoying the sun I brought with me it is a tad windier here in Derbyshire…my stay has also been extended due to my original flight being cancelled but it means I am here for another month…I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend xx

    So glad that you are enjoying your time with family and friends, Carol. I got my annual migraine yesterday. The only thing that helps is to lock myself away in a coll dark room for 12 hours. I’ve emerged from hibernation today and am starting to play catch-up.

        I’m kind of glad in a way that it wasn’t just me! I tried it in both the reader and by clicking through from the email notification and got the same result from both – a big white space where I expected to see more words! Glad you’re having a lot of fun with family and friends though 😊 x

    I had a friend who had a Tortoise it hibernated every year and I think from memory she said it was over 30 years at the time as her children had been gifted it.. Of course she was left holding it when they both left home 🙂
