CarolCooks2 weekly roundup… 23rd-29th January 2022-Monday Musings, Health, A-Z World Cuisine, Argentina, Friday Food Review, Saturday Snippets and Up, Up and Away

Welcome to my weekly roundup...
January is on the wane and February is in sight… I do hope that those of you who are
experiencing lots of snow are staying warm and safe…I am hearing whispers of 2ft of snow in
some places…It does of course look very pretty when it first falls but is not without its
problems…It sounds like plenty of warming soups and casseroles are on the menus.

What is in store for you then this week if you are catching up…  I launched my first post my new A-Z  World Cuisines featuring food from Argentina…Monday Musings are just some findings from the week before which I either find amusing or not, …Friday review and the subject was Saffron…Saturday Snippets is always a joy to write for me…plus #bloganuary which has been fun sometimes it has made me think and frown then wonder where the -beep- they get their prompts however I’m still hanging in there with just a few days to go now…but today they want me to be a tree…Pleeeeeese!

Monday Musings!

Covers anything that has happened throughout the last week, something I have read or watched it could be a pet peeve or almost anything.. welcome to my world!… This week it was how to look after Bees in winter and I hear tell in some places there are 2 feet of snow…The sad news of the passing of “Meat” was a great loss to the world of showbiz…

The importance of books featuring stories about climate change for children and trees which I love trees but me as a tree..this prompt is haunting me…lol

A-Z …World Cuisine This week I journey around Argentina…it was a journey of discovery…Did you know they are the worlds biggest meat-eaters?… A huge country and so diverse there is also the same tragedy of the indigenous tribes which is happening the world over not just here where they are ostracized, displaced it is so very sad…

But the food…they know how to cook meat …the sauces like chimichurri and Dolce Le Leche need I say more …
