Carol Cooks2 …Weekly roundup…Phoenix, Smart Watches and The Nectar of the Gods…

Welcome to my weekly roundup if you have missed any posts  …Take a pew, grab a drink, settle down and enjoy!

I have baked my first sourdough loaf…

great reads a weekly roundup lady with electronic reader

After all the trial and tribulations…I have baked my very first loaf…Phoenix arose and did the job he is now quiet in the fridge but bubbling slowly so I am guessing he is a strong, feisty boy…I wonder who he takes after??? Haha, it has been said…..

More about this later… 

Smart watches were the subject for the first post of the week and I am loving my recent purchase… Not very much impresses me especially gadgets I am probably the most anti-gadget person I know…

But I also know I need to look after the one body I have…Not be fanatic and exercise madly, (walking), become vegan(said)quietly or follow faddy diets. I have all those t/shirts…

legs people walking

Just to eat sensibly a healthy balanced diet with lots of veggies and fibre and have the odd piece of sourdough bread which will be thoroughly enjoyed with butter and not an ounce of guilt or remorse…and just walk…So there you have it!

Honey certainly deserves the name of nectar of the gods ...For thousands of years it has been used both as a nutritious addition to diet and as an effective medicine and the oldest reference to this delicacy dates back to 5500 BC.

Waste Not! Want Not! Week 15 and there is so much happening from the scandalous to the good… My wish is that man who is the biggest threat to the world and the ecosystem will be neutralised that corrupt governments and officials will be outed and that the people in charge will grow or have some balls to stop bad practise and say NO to damaging practices!

Young Greta Thunberg was correct when she said government have not and will not listen… I for one hope these young people’s voices will be heard.

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then I bid you welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Week 11…In my kitchen…My first Sourdough Loaf…

 

Welcome to week 11 in my kitchen and what a week…At last… My first sourdough bread is cooked…Not perfect I am guessing… but edible and I checked out images and it looks the same as some other wholemeal sourdough loaves so I am happy with that as my first attempt at sourdough…

This week leaves me slightly knackered I think is the word…Lily is on her school holidays so is here for about 8 weeks she tells me…She started her swimming lessons yesterday so they are every day @ 4pm for one hour…Aston is in his final week at school ..Exams and a play for which I am trying to find a top…so far no luck so Lily and I are off to search, today…The plus side is it all helps me reach my target of 10,000 steps a day…

Sourdough.

 

To give my starter a helping hand I used 50/50 with wholemeal flour and it worked I am really grateful to Tabula for sending me the link to The Perfect Loaf as he ( Maurizio Leo) gave excellent instructions and tips far better than the original book that I brought …

I do need digital scales which are on order as cups are not so accurate and I think he was right…My next loaf will be a white one and I am expecting the holes to be bigger as it seems that using wholemeal flour the texture of the bread is denser.

I am sure anyone who makes wholemeal sourdough will tell me if I am correct…

 

It did, however, have a nice crust and I didn’t burn the bottom…haha…All in all, for the first attempt at sourdough I am pretty pleased and its name is Phoenix ( as ) suggested by Sally…

This week’s Curry:-  Panang Curry

Phanaeng, also spelt phanang, panang, and other variants is a type of red Thai curry that is thick, salty and sweet, with a nutty peanut flavour.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ -2 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2-4 tbsp Panang curry paste
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 ¼ lb boneless skinless chicken, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp fish sauce 
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp tamarind paste concentrate (or more for more tang)
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced (or ½ red onion)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, optional
  • ¼ cup Thai basil leaves

Let’s Cook!

Without shaking the can, skim off two tbsp of the coconut cream and add it to a sauté pan set over medium-high heat. Add the Panang curry paste along with the peanut butter and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken and stir to coat, cook for 1-2 minutes. If at any point the sauce begins to stick to the pan, add a couple tbsp of water to deglaze. Stir in the remaining coconut milk, starting with 1 1/2 cans (adjust with more later if desired.) Add the kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, brown sugar, sliced onion, and red bell pepper. 

Allow the curry to come to a simmer, lower the heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the chicken cooks through. Taste and adjust with additional coconut milk, sugar, tamarind, or fish sauce as desired. Turn off the heat and stir in the basil. Serve warm with rice or cooked rice noodles.

penang-Thai-curry

If desired then you can drizzle the top with a little coconut milk. This curry is very tasty and quick to cook you can cook it while your rice is cooking…20 minutes and you have a lovely curry…The tamarind gives it that extra depth of flavour it is one of my favourite additions to a sauce.

My other cooking plans went out of the window over the last few days as it has been frantic with the end of term concerts and exams…Today I walked 13,689 steps the recommended target being 10,000 steps per day… by the time I go to bedibyes I think it will be closer to 14,000. Final count as I am not moving any more( 14,315) I think I will sleep well tonight..A short post for me but I will catch up in the week with my cooking…

By the way, I got some lovely lemons today…Not something I often get here and they are quite big, organic from the North of Thailand…What to make???

The Culinary Alphabet…The letter N…Nutmeg, Nettles and Noodles…

Welcome to this month’s The Culinary Alphabet beginning with the letter N. I can be found over @ Emes’s Salon once a month where I am posting articles based on the Culinary Alphabet which has been a revelation to me as I have discovered a few things which I either didn’t know or didn’t know that I knew.. I also can’t believe how quickly the time is going it seems to me that it is just flying by we are in the month of March already.

Nage

In French, “a la nage” means “in the swim”. The classic definition of nage is a stock typically used to poach seafood, especially fish. Traditionally, nage is a broth flavoured with vegetables, white wine as well as herbs. However, nage is also the cooking technique of simmering something gently in a flavourful broth. This broth can be served as a light sauce at the same time to accompany the main dish.

This was also one of the cooking terms that I didn’t know in fact I don’t recall hearing it before so a learning curve for me…

Nicoise Salad

A descriptive term for dishes served with particular foods used by the chefs of the City of Nice, France.  This garnish usually includes garlic, tomatoes, anchovies, black olive, capers, and lemon juice. Salad Nicoise is the most famous of all these dishes, consisting of potatoes, olives, green beans, and vinaigrette dressing.

To read the remainder of the post and discover what else I have found beginning with N you will need to head over to Esme’s Salon…her site has had a makeover and it looks very nice now..Look forward to seeing you there…

WasteNot! Want Not! Week 15

I am really heartened by the initiatives which I am discovering that are happening from all around the world…Your comments are also a revelation when I hear from you guys what is going on in your neck of the woods all good stuff…How you are reducing the carbon footprints and coming up with ideas to cut waste and protect the environment.

BUT…Hand on heart…

A heart map held by a hand

Are we truly doing enough?

This young lady doesn’t think so…Greta Thunberg is 15 years old with a wise head on her young shoulders and tomorrow 15th March 2019 around the world young people will skip school to have their say…If one of those young people is your child then I urge you to support them…

A young girl called Greta who shows quiet determination for what she believes in…

♦♦♦♦

Last week I touched on how an initiative in Mexico 8,409 km from the UK…  a region of the UK has created the country’s first local circular economy.

The traditional system of getting rid of waste is linear: packaging is made, used and disposed of but the local authority in Cambridgeshire along with a local plastics processor and packaging company have joined together to create a model which is circular.

Thank you, Tori, for spotting this update…

The initiative is being led by Huntingdonshire District Council working with Charpak Ltd, a Huntingdon-based plastic packaging manufacturer, and has seen discarded plastics collected, cleaned, reprocessed and reused, all within the local area.

The council says the new approach, which has been 18 months in the making, has helped to reduce the amount of plastic going to landfill.

A spokesman for the district council said: “Our residents are already great recyclers diverting more than 55 per cent of waste from landfill. We need more plastics recycled and less going to landfill, so the next step is to improve the quality of materials that are collected for recycling.

This mismanagement of environment issues continues in Australia and another damming report on Water Wars in the Murray-Darling Basin has been issued …It seems young Greta who I mentioned in this post above is worth listening to…Because those in power are not listening once again I urge all you Australians to become a climate voter

What does this mean for the fish in this river basin?

December and January saw three devastating mass fish kills in the Darling River. Now it seems a fourth is on the cards.

A new paper released today by the Australian National University found that water savings in the Murray-Darling Basin may only be one-tenth of the expected amount.

Simply put, greedy corporations and government mismanagement meant too much water was taken from the Murray-Darling Basin and not enough water was put back to allow the river to cope in a drying climate. And now we’re seeing the devastating consequences.

Even in the drought season rivers like this are not supposed to dry out…

Monsanto… At long last seem to be fighting a losing battle…slowly but surely people power is winning…There was Costco…

And now?

ONCE AGAIN Monsanto is losing millions of dollars now that farmers in India are switching to indigenous cotton seeds rather than Bt cotton.

The agrichemicals company is known for pushing a form of Bt cotton in India for the last decade. They have been accused of manipulating laws in order to enter the Indian market.

Some FURTHER good news is that these edible parks are springing up all over and I think it is a great initiative FOR URBAN DWELLERS…

Good News…The Middle East has opened the First Zero Waste Shop….Reducing your environmental impact in the Middle East just got a whole lot easier. A zero-waste lifestyle shop called EcoSouk just opened in the Hamra neighbourhood of Beirut, Lebanon.

How good is that?

Thank you so much for reading this post …Your ideas on how we can save our carbon footprints and the environment we would love to hear any new initiatives or updates please share…I love to hear from you in comments xxx

Smorgasbord Health Rewind – Cook from Scratch with Sally Cronin and Carol Taylor – Honey – Nectar of the Gods

I love honey especially raw from the cone which is plentiful here…I am so lucky and as Sally says it has so many health benefits it also makes a lovely addition to many dishes …

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

This week it is the turn of honey which has been providing sweetness to our diet for thousands of years. First I look at its many health benefits and then Carol is going to work her magic in the kitchen.

Many people are enjoying the benefits of plant based sweeteners such as Stevia which are very useful in cooking and as an alternative to table sugar.  I do use at times but I still use honey for its reputation for thousands of years as a healing food.

I doubt that there are many people today who are not aware of the health risks in consuming too much sugar-rich food. Diabetes is on the increase, especially in children, and along with obesity is likely to be one of the top causes of premature death within a few years.

To my mind, the insidious inclusion of sugars in processed foods and equally…

Healthy Eating…SmartWatch…

Welcome to Tuesdays Healthy eating post…It seems like last weeks post on Intermittent fasting is something many of you are following or thinking about it certainly seems to be the way forward and is on many health professionals radar…

Healthy eating is not about deprivation but about choosing foods for the well-being of the one body we have been given…I believe as do many that we need a healthy balanced diet and the occasional treat is fine and to be enjoyed…

When I stated what I had cut out last week it was foods I believed were having a negative impact on MY body…It is foods which have empty calories, do not add anything healthy to MY diet…That’s it!

You are in charge of yours and nothing wrong with having a drink of alcohol or a biscuit or two if you fancy it… for me altogether they were having a negative impact …

Enough of that…I have attached this little chart of Sally’s for you to check out if you want…No pressure here…just conversations as to what works for us as individuals no one size fits all…

fat accumalation chart

 

This little table certainly focused my mind… As did Sally’s and my recent post… together we are aiming to help you reach your goals…There are some great ideas to help you with your healthy eating and some straight talking from Sally…I just provide the recipes…

Nothing worthwhile in life is easy…Think about writing a novel….That bit is easy but what comes after …editing and rewrites etc BUT we do it…Healthy eating and or weight loss is just the same so… Let’s go and do it!

Stuck for recipes? Need some inspiration?…

In this series, we look at cooking and your diet from a different perspective. Usually, we emphasize the health benefits of food and how they can be incorporated into your diet. But, what happens if you do NOT include them in your diet.

We wanted to share with you what happens if your body is deprived of individual nutrients over an extended period of time.

Smartwatch Corner!

I have a smartwatch….Yeah…It is smarter than me…Honestly not something I would ever have envisaged buying…Why? I am really not a gadgets person…Or one who has to have the latest phone person either…However when I could not have the apps I wanted on my phone because Samsung loaded all their bloatware and by the time they had done that it left me very little to play with and I ended up having to uninstall an app to add another app and my needs are small…I don’t play games, pay with my phone or any shopping channels not of my choosing…

This made me have a rethink and consequently, I bought another phone which allowed me to install the few apps I do have …It also had a pre-installed fitness app which one’s grandson alerted me too…Thank you, Aston x

It also focussed my mind…Told me how many steps I have taken in a day…Also, lots of other stuff if I wanted…I found I did…

Hence some research into smart watches …So starting next week there will be a smartwatch corner as I discover new things about it…That saying about there is life in the old dog yet is coming true…Haha

The lovely girl in the shop set it up and synced( get me) it to my phone…It has just waved at me and shown an image of someone getting up and walking…Please, I am writing…haha…

But joking aside it is showing me the error of my ways..She who tries but is not perfect..is listening oh hallowed smartwatch… just don’t get too smart…

It has however piqued my interest about my sleep pattern for example…I was normal on all counts the first night..It also explained every step with links …I was impressed as I like to know that statements on health are backed up by research…

Then life in the form of my grandsons birthday cake stepped in…I had two pieces and enjoyed them (I also) knew I should have stuck at one…The second was I am loving my Green tea but not a good idea to have a late night pot of the said green tea( caffeine)…My smartwatch had a hissy fit yesterday morning reflected in my sleep pattern stats…

It bloody knew…Haha

Once I had digested those stats and I didn’t like them one lickle bit but I also knew what caused the blip…This morning I woke up bright and bushy-tailed unlike yesterday and my sleep pattern was much better so hopefully, tomorrows will be back to absolute normal …Smartwatch it is… I am impressed (so far)

I am also impressed by how our bodies react…A wonderful piece of machinery which we can abuse and abuse and then we can much of the time apply a little moderation and TLC and it purrs like a well-tuned car…Mine will never be a Rolls Royce but maybe, just maybe a little Honda Jazz…

Until next week…xxxx

Thank you for reading and please tell me in comments your thoughts if you have a smartwatch…x
