CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 18th -24th September 2022-Monday Musings, Chicken Curry with Bamboo , Health, Morbid Obesity, Aromatic Leaves…Deep Fried Maple Leaves…and Saturday Snippets where “Curve” is my one word prompt.

Hello and welcome to my weekly roundup of posts you may have missed during the week…September is in its final week...the start of high season and sunshine for some although we are still getting some ferocious tropical downpours and the start of shorter nights and colder days for others…

Lots of food months in September like potatoes, rice, mushrooms, Italian Cheese, honey, chicken, and whole grains all foods I like…This is the time to gather up the rest of the harvest and prepare for the winter month for those of you who are in the Southern Hemisphere…

Last Monday saw the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth II… Queen Elizabeth II sadly left this world after 70 years of service and dedication to the Crown and the British people…a sad week for so many worldwide…a Queen who was a mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to serving the Crown and throughout her life, she did so with grace, humility, dignity and a sense of fun…

What can we look forward to in October?…for some there is Halloween but it’s also a month loaded with national and global celebrations. In addition to spooky revelry, October’s schedule includes multiple days on the topic of bullying awareness …it makes me sad that after all the days, weeks and months we are still banging this drum…Bullying is unacceptable in my book and yet it still exists…

It’s National Apple, Chilli and Caramel, pears and Rhubarb month plus cookbook month… those are just a few of my favourites already the recipes are swirling around in my brain…

Let’s have look at last week’s posts…starting with…Monday Musings...

Monday was a historical day and a sad day but a day where we could reflect on a life well lived, a much-loved mother, grandmother and Queen was laid to rest…Long Live the King!

Monday Musings …19th September 2022…

Chicken is such a versatile and healthy meat, quick to cook and a whole chicken can make more than one meal today I shared a much-loved recipe here chicken with bamboo…bamboo is a very versatile vegetable…Bamboo shoots are also very nice to eat…Bamboo shoots (noo maai) are used as the main ingredient in a variety of traditional Thai dishes, they can be cooked, pickled, and eaten raw. Bamboo shoots have a high amount of vitamins A, B1, B2 and C.

CarolCooks2 in my kitchen…Chicken Curry with Bamboo Shoots( noo maai)…

I love writing A-Z’s and this one is no exception it is interesting and informative to look at a country’s cuisine…Today I am taking you on a virtual tour of the cuisine of Estonia…a cuisine that is similar in many ways to the food I grew up with and also a cuisine that is building on its traditional roots and is so good now that some restaurants have started to earn a Michelin star…

CarolCooks2…A-Z World Cuisines…Part 23…Estonia…

World wide Obesity is on the rise…the official figures are scary because not does obesity only limit our lifespan and impact our enjoyment of life it also impacts on health services around the world…We cannot halt the train that produces so many processed foods which are in general laden with chemicals, the same with our meat and vegetables we can however take charge of ourselves and choose to get off that train…Sally who writes Smorgasbord Magazine uses herself as an example of what can be achieved… she tells how it impacted her life and would have affected her longevity …she also is very honest as she chronicles her journey…she is a living example of what can be done by us…TO READ THE ORIGINAL POST PLEASE CLICK THE HIGHLIGHTED LINK BELOW…

Aromatic leaves can make a great difference to the taste of our food and often we have them in our gardens or can find them if we forage we may pick the fruit and not realise that the leaf also has a place in our culinary world to enrich our dishes…

In this post, I look at maple Leaves, The Duan Salam leaf and the star fruit leaf…all these leaves that until I researched this post I was unaware either of their existence or the fact that they could be used…I have Duan Salam leaves in the post and on their way to me, the star fruit leaves stare me in the face every day and I knew not of their use… the Maple leaf I don’t have a tree near me and even those of you who have didn’t know they could be eaten…it seems it has been a learning curve all around this week…that makes me happy as I love to learn new things…

      It certainly is the end of an era, Robbie and I totally agree I listened to it all plus the fallout and I hope that her policys have the desired effect however sense tells me that it won’t…
