Smorgasbord Health Column – Family Health – Bronchitis by Sally Cronin

Bronchitis

For anyone who suffers repeatedly from the common cold, bronchitis is always a possibility. There are two types of the disease. Acute bronchitis refers to the here and now and will last up to six weeks whereas chronic bronchitis infers long term symptoms that can last up to two years or longer if the infection is topped up from time to time by colds and flu.

Sally offers some great advice…#recommended read…Please head over and have a read…

CarolCooks2 weekly roundup…June 13th-19th June 2021…#Pearls, Whimsy, Music, Stargazy Pie and Mealworms……

Lemon Chicken, Pearls, Music, A-Z and Fathers Day…

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…Especially for you just in case you missed a few posts during this last week…Time is marching on…It is now officially rainy season here so there will definitely be some dancing in the rain…

June…the middle of another year…today is Fathers Day  I miss my dad more as every day passes…I miss all the men who have been positive influences in my life and my children’s lives…   I am proud of all my children and the way they have forged their place in the world how they have nurtured their children to take their places in this ever-changing world…Wishing all you dads out there a “Happy Fathers Day

In case you missed any posts this week or love to catch up like I do… snuggle down in your quiet place… get comfy in your favourite corner with a drink of tea/coffee or hot chocolate although depending on where in the world you live it could be a glass of wine or two…Cheers!

Fact:…Age and glasses of wine should so not be counted.. on that note, for last Monday I give you one of our truly loved, tried and tested recipes…Lemon Chicken…

Age and glasses of wine should never be counted!

Researching is one of my favourite pastimes…although the internet can be such a dark place in some hands it is also the source of much information from around the world…A-Z  with the middle letter being the feature IS not as easy as it sounds but it has expanded my culinary knowledge …I do hope it has expanded yours…

Pho, although it is the National dish of Vietnam, is also a popular dish around Asia…Pilchards which I love and the ancient recipe for Stargazy pie plus who knew how many uses there were for eggshells?

The Culinary Alphabet …..A-Z…Series 3… the letter H…Stargazy Pie with Pilchards…

It had the desired effect and shocked a few who declined never to ever partake although I do think as the industry is growing that at some point it will be an acceptable food choice for many…Me…I prefer ant eggs they make a lovely spicy salad called Koi Khai Mod Dang ก้อยไข่มดแดง and in a soup, you wouldn’t know UNLESS TOLD and they are highly nutritious…

This soup is made using Meliantha a Thai herb, Oyster Mushrooms and ants eggs ..it is delicious and nutritious.

Would you eat me?…Banana Worm Bread…

Backache…can be very debilitating and the figures are shocking…Sally address all of this in her post and offers some ideas for relief …#recommended read

Smorgasbord Health Column – Family Health – Backache by Sally Cronin

Saturday Snippets…my inspiration this week came from Teagan and her brilliant series ” The Delta Pearl”Teagan is the ultimate storyteller whose imagination knows no bounds…You must hop on board I promise you that you will be spellbound…

I have so much fun researching just using a word …I discovered much with a connection to Pearls…far too much for one post and I hope I picked a flowing mix and that you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it…xx

Saturday Snippets…19th June 2021…Pearls…

That’s it for today…I know I haven’t been posting my regular posts as much but my thoughts are elsewhere much of the time…My darling daughter has an MRI scan tomorrow where we will know the extent of her cancer and the treatment plan…Thank you to those of you who have Lauren in their prayers…xx

Thank you so much for dropping by I always look forward to your visits and comments…Hope to see you here next week xx
