My first post of the week was on Tuesday 20th…Halloween Tales and recipes…

From what I have been reading Halloween in many places is not happening this year and in others, it has been curtailed or there may be some virtual goings-on planned…I am sure by now though the decorations are up…

I have lots of trivia, sweet potato recipes, soup from the lovely Dolly, and the obligatory cocktail…

Fruity Friday…The Juniper Berry

A lovely versatile little berry that makes lovely sauces is a great aromatic in stews and dried it is a beautiful spice…in Northern Europe particularly in Scandanavia, it is a popular addition to cabbage and sauerkraut.

Saturday Snippets:

I have lots this week for you, recipes, health and trivia, and The Who…My Storks are still here sometimes just one and a couple of times this week he or she has brought along some mates …they fascinate me as they stand around in a semi-circle and chat and when it’s time to go they take their formation and away they go…

That’s all for this week’s roundup a rather short week again…one of the positives… less writing has made my stats boom…go figure… I do hope you have enjoyed it and I look forward to your comments xx

God bless you all in these turbulent times…especially those of my readers who are affected or in the path of these wildfires in California…Please stay safe…x

When this is all over my hope for the future is a cleaner world… I do want to see communities, and caring for your neighbour becoming the new norm…WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER…Being kind to each other…Loving someone whatever their religion or skin colour…Can we make this happen? We have to but in the right way…Are we willing to make a stand? Personally, I would love to see lessons learned..realistically I have my doubts…

Thank you for reading be well and stay safe xxx

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 well being.

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 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!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all stay safe and healthy xx

Saturday Snippets…24th October 2020…

Welcome to Saturday Snippets where anything goes…whatever catches my eye or my imagination could be on this post…something for everyone…The temperature has definitely dropped this week enough for me to sleep comfortably without a fan and it has been overcast and quite dull although this morning I was greeted by sunshine…A nice change…

The Asian Open Billed Stork has been making a daily appearance sometimes joined by another and yesterday there were 7 of them …So far today no sign but I am wondering if when it is raining and blustery maybe it is quieter and more sheltered here if he is coming from the nearby wetlands…

Today is National Tripe Day…

Although I have vowed never ever to eat it I have been quite surprised to hear that it is on some restaurants menu and a few sources have told me that it is very nice…One of my readers who is a chef posted a recipe for tripe which I thought would be perfect for today and I have to admit it sounds quite delicious…So for everyone who is partial to tripe here is the recipe courtesy of Chef Luis Perrone…Enjoy!

 

Please click this link which will take you to this recipe for La Busecca De Los Tanos and have a look around while you are there as there are some very nice recipes…native dishes which to me are the best…

Did you know? Volkswagen makes more sausages than cars?

The sausages are called Volkswagen Currywurst…The sausage is branded as a Volkwagon Original part and in 2018 some 6.81 million sausages were manufactured…

Now for some music…

Let’s Rock n Roll…with “The Who ” and My Generation…

Way back in December 1965 when this song was released me and my peers loved it we loved the energy and exuberance of the band they were loud and proud..smashing their instruments it was the anthem of our era in many ways…I remember my father not being impressed at all…But it was the time of excesses in drugs, alcohol, and rock n roll. Their music was influenced by hard rock, mod bands, and punk rock…They were an exciting band to watch…

11 years later The Who played their last show at the end of a North American Tour @ Maple Leaf Gardens…sadly it was to be Keith Jones final tour as he passed away 2 years later from an overdose of a sedative called Heminevrin which was prescribed to stop seizures induced by alcohol withdrawal.

It wasn’t the last time he played with The Who he played a couple of special gigs for the kids are alright docu…

Watching these back I can see my dad’s point but obviously, as a teenager, we don’t do we?

You can drink a drink BUT you can’t food a food…Just saying…

Wellness Corner with Sally Cronin…Chamomile is this week’s flower  …such a pretty little flower with so many health benefits…

I am loving this series of Aromatherapy I hope you are as well… Sally is looking in-depth at Chamomile. If you have missed any previous posts you can catch up when you pop over to Sally’s she will make you very welcome and answer any questions that you have…#recommended read…Enjoy!

October Trivia…The Anglo-Saxons name for October was Winterfylleth, with its name containing the words for winter and full moon respectively. It was named this because winter was said to begin from the first full moon of the month.

A variation of that name was the capital of the North in Game of Thrones which was called Winterfell…

The Saxons had a name for October, too. Theirs was Wyn Monath, which translated into “wine month” because it was the time of the year for making wine. I’m not sure about you, but I think October just became my favorite month!… Haha

As you all know by now it is National Pumpkin Month…and Halloween is coming only 11 days I am sure by now all your houses are looking quite spooky…and talking about spooky I was reading John Rieber’s blog the other day and he had come across some very scary and wacky doormats…

How scary is that…I don’t like clowns anyway and I definitely would not be treading on that mat…Pop over to John’s if you fancy being scared some more he finds all the cool and wacky stuff…

I am also thinking that I should be soon making my Xmas Puddings and cake...This year I have decided that instead of cooking Christmas dinner we will eat out…I will still make mince pies etc but instead of shuffling around with an oven which only has one shelf and a tabletop version which makes 2 shelves I am going to spare everyone the stress …I can cook a ham for sandwiches and meals for the few days after Xmas…but I have decided…someone else can cook the Christmas Dinner xx

This week on the menu has been Blueberry Buckle again ..my testers love this and with custard, this time was their request, Duck in Orange Sauce, Spicy Pork with peppercorns which got the thumbs up from my harshest critic…more crockpot Bread I am becoming quite the baker… my inhouse food critic wanted tiger bread this time… I brushed the top with a paste made from rice flour and it looked just like Tiger Bread it worked something else I have learned.. …next time they have requested poppy seeds …they are testing me here…

Chocolate brownies were also on the menu as was some more tomato soup and sausage rolls which I haven’t made for a long time…Salmon the Thai way always goes down a treat…Chicken Roast which is when I have a stir fry which was garlic and pepper chicken…Thai steamed fish which everyone loves with morning glory…and lots of fresh herbs. sometimes I use ginger and crispy kale it all depends…

Next weekend for some of you is Halloween here in Thailand we will be celebrating Loy Krathong… 

The Festival of “Loy Krathong”, literally the “Festival of Floating Leaf Cups”, has been celebrated in Thailand for over 6,000 years. It is a Buddhist celebration that takes place a few days before and the day of the full moon in the month of November. Loy Krathong is a festival representative of many things.  To read all about how and why we celebrate Loy Krathong please click the link above…

Lily with her Krathong all ready to float it on the water…See how pretty the banana leaves look when they are plaited with a flower…

That’s all for me this week...I hope you have found something to enjoy…I am now going to make my green tea…contemplate making brownies at the request of my grandson and of course it is time to start the bread making…To all of you who are facing tighter lockdown restrictions please stay safe. I am praying that those who do not conform decide that it is now time to think of their neighbors and fellow man and just do it or this Virus which they think is false will carry on into 2021…Surely no one wants to see that?

Please let me know in the comments what you enjoyed …I love hearing from you it makes my day…

That’s all for this week and Saturday Snippet …xxx

Thank you for reading….enjoy your weekend, stay safe not only from Covid-19 but the wildfires around the world…xx
