CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 25th September -1st October 2022-Monday Musings, Mushroom Lasagne with 40 cloves of garlic, Health, Morbid Obesity, Aromatic Leaves…Scent Leaves…and Saturday Snippets where “Rain” is my one word prompt.

Hello and welcome to my weekly roundup of posts you may have missed during the week…September was 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…I managed to dodge the spots today on my early morning walk…

Yesterday was the 1st of October…it was World Vegetarian Day, the start of National Apple Month(1st-31st), it was National Potato Day in Ireland and I’m sure there were lots of beautiful potato dishes on offer as Ireland is known for its potatoes…3rd-9th October is National Curry Week, plus not only is Tuesday the 4th October World Taco Day but it is also Cinnamon Roll Day…anything with cinnamon and I am there…it comes into its own at this time of year…

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…lots of lovely root veggies…

What else 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...

I was serious on Monday…there are some steps forward from B Corps…Lots of info on that and the climate crisis is on full display this week with hurricanes and typhoon-related storms causing mass destruction…Please help, if you can…and if you are in the path of any of these then please stay safe x

Monday Musings…26th September 2022…

Tuesday it was time for a veggie recipe...I love mushrooms and garlic and this recipe is both garlic approx 40 cloves..not a typo it’s definitely garlic and mushroom heavy..delicious and decadent…

CarolCooks2 in my kitchen…Mushroom Lasagne…

A big thank you to Sally from Smorgabord Magazine for sharing my first A-Z…I am loving rereading this series…I hope you are too…

This post was meant to raise awareness of the stark reality of food loss and waste…it is a problem. a huge problem and we need to do more!

CarolCooks2…Today is the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste…

Morbid Obesity…

The good news from the UK and it’s not before time is that stores are no longer allowed to promote junk food at the tills and in certain other parts of the stores more on that in this week’s Monday Musings…The worldwide figures on Morbid Obesity are scary…In fact, obesity is considered a modern epidemic in most parts of the world.

Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975, with about 13% of adults being obese and about 39% of adults being overweight…Sally’s posts are great she uses herself as an example of what can be achieved …she is brutally honest about why she was obese and the effect on her health and where she is now healthy and at a normal weight…Please head over by clicking the highlighted link below…

I cannot believe I am on part 6 of aromatic leaves at best I thought I might stretch to 3 posts but I keep coming across aromatic leaves and this last week it was quite by chance as you will see if you read the post…

CarolCooks2…Friday Food Reviews…Aromatic Leaves…Part 6…

Saturday Snippets…my most fun post of the week to write and yesterday my muse chose “Rain” as my one-word prompt…

I came across a stunning rain tree, a Japanese rain doll…I totally forgot to include Rainbow  Pasta…it looks so cool and all-natural…

Isn’t that cool…not sure about the voice but at least its clear…

Thank you for joining me today as always I look forward to your comments..have a great Sunday and if you are in the path of any hurricanes or typhoons then please batten down and stay safe…x
