Hello and welcome to my weekly roundup of posts you may have missed during the week…

Monday Musings… is where normally I share some things that have thrilled me, made me think or smile or even have a mini-rant but generally it is my happy place and I hope yours…Last week I shared the good news that Restrictions on where shops in England can display junk food came into effect on 1st October 2022…

Products that are high in fat, salt and sugar can no longer be placed in prominent locations such as shop entrances and tills…a step in the right direction …

I also shared a post from John Rieber who has such a passion for cooking and finding the unusual… whilst I am not a fan of spam I know many are including my other half but I do love pumpkin spice mix please head over to Johns blog say hello and have read there is always something new to discover…

National Curry Week…3rd-9th October 2022…

We love a good curry albeit Indian or Thai although (said)quietly I think National curry week is about Indian curries…

Size Matters…Morbid Obesity…

The worldwide figures on obesity are scary and what makes it even worse is that people’s health suffers it is a vicious circle…For me as I have gotten older I am more health aware…if I can I want to stay mobile as long as I can and that means keeping eye on my weight I don’t diet anymore but I do watch what I eat…I eat more or less what I wish to eat just less of it…

In this week’s post, Sally gives examples of menus..she has done all the work for you…and it is surprising how much you can eat and still lose weight of course exercise comes into it…personally, I do not like the gym never have…but I love to walk and I am up and out by 7 every morning for my first walk of the day…Please head over to Sally’s where she has lots of great advice on how you can lose weight and be healthier…Just click the highlighted link below…

Garlic Lovers Day… the U.S.A…

Garlic is one of my most used aromatics…I use garlic even in recipes that don’t ask for it…it is like many vegetables with different varieties with different flavour profiles…

UK Fungus Day …

Mushrooms are a much-loved and used cooking ingredient in my kitchen I am also lucky that not only does my DIL forage for mushrooms but the markets are always a treasure trove of different mushroom varieties…but not only a food source mushrooms are an important part of our ecosystem and have a massive underground existence…the link has lots of fascinating information about the mushroom(fungi) that is neither plant nor animal and very fascinating and important to our survival…
