CarolCooks2 weekly roundup…June 6th-12th June 2021…#Whiskey or Whisky, Whimsy, Music, Green Kitchen and Kintsugi…

Recipes, Whisky or Whiskey, Music, Kintsugi and Green Kitchen…

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…its also officially the month of June…and so far it’s very wet here…

June has both the longest and the shortest days of the year, depending on where you’re standing! If you live in the northern hemisphere, then June 21st is the longest day of the year. If you live in the southern hemisphere, then the 21st is the shortest day of the year.

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

World Ocean Week 7th-13th June…

Overfishing. Pollution. Acidification. Warming. Our precious ocean and the life that calls it home are now more at risk than ever before.

The ocean makes up 70% of the world’s surface, acts as a vital carbon sink, regulates the weather and produces half of the oxygen we breathe. 

World Ocean Day is part of the weeks activity’s during World Ocean Week…

World Ocean Week 7th-13th June…

I really do believe we should be very aware of how important the oceans are to our continued life on Mother Earth…Ocean Liners and shipping trawlers are some of the worst culprits on the seas… we are some of the worse culprits in our homes because of how we deal with our waste anything we wash down the sink or drains will end up in the sea polluting rivers along the way…we should be thinking of the end result of our actions…I don’t think we pay enough attention to the consequences of our actions the habits we have and it’s something most of us do with little thought…

I believe in inclusion… this beautiful film although about something totally different made my thoughts turn to inclusion and to human imperfections …it made me think and hope that I could live in a world where human imperfections differences are seen for what they are …that we embrace that and look at not what a person cannot do but embrace and celebrate what they can do…Our lives and theirs would be so much richer…x

Tuesday Morning Musings…A Zero Waste Life…#Kintsugi…

Welcome to my Environmental A-Z…still an A-Z but with a difference …

The idea for this series came about because as my regular followers and commenters know I am passionate about the health of the world I am living in… however often when I am researching and reading articles I come across terms and have to look them up which spawned the idea for this…two-fold… it increases my knowledge and I hope yours…

The A-Z of the environment and Climate Change… letter H.

The best way to predict your future is to create it...Abraham Lincoln.

The Environmental A-Z…the letter H…

Good morning and welcome to June’s edition of my Green Kitchen… I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am to be back with a brand- new column at Smorgasbord Magazine… and how welcome you are making me feel.

Just to recap for those who are new here…This monthly post will cover sustainability, news on food production…changes for the better and maybe a villain or three…haha, a recipe or two including some plant-based recipes, hints and tips on making my household a little greener…aka recycling and composting.

I am passionate about cooking from scratch using fresh ingredients, the environment and ensuring that the food I make for my family is clean and as chemical-free as it can possible be…I would also love to know that instead of counting calories and cost that more people counted chemicals as it is the chemicals in processed foods which affect our health and wellbeing.

This tiny little sweet and sour fruit  Sapindaceae is part of the soapberry family which includes lychee, longan and rambutan.

Many are lactiferous, i.e. they contain milky sap, and many contain mildly toxic saponins with soap-like qualities in either the foliage and/or the seeds, or roots.

This tiny little fruit grows wild and is often called the wild lychee the tree it comes from is enormous and the fruit so tiny it also quite rare to find… I came across this fruit quite by chance when I took a ride back from the market in a tuk-tuk. I am always being surprised at what I find on the markets and the roadsides and when I ride in a tuk-tuk…so much backyard fruit to discover and sample…

Tropical Friday’s…The Korlan Fruit…

Saturday Snippets…one of my favourite days of the week where I  indulge my whimsy and my passions… maybe a tune or two…something which has caught my eye this last week…just anything out of the ordinary or extraordinary…

For the last two weeks, I have taken inspiration from something I have read or watched… this week it was thanx to Jim of Bordens Blather and a very interesting bather it was…Thank you for the inspiration, Jim x

My chosen theme…Whiskey or is it Whisky?

Who would have thought that one letter of the alphabet could cause such a ruckus in some circles…as indeed it can and does…to me it looks the same although I know it doesn’t always taste the same but then neither does wine and its still called wine…

It also makes a damn good sauce…X

Saturday Snippets …12th June 2021…Whiskey or Whisky?

 

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

Tuesday Morning Musings…A Zero Waste Life…#Kintsugi…

Sometimes while reading or watching something speaks to my soul…touches my inner core… gives me hope…gives me a glimpse of a world I want to inhabit…

I believe in inclusion… this beautiful film although about something totally different made my thoughts turn to inclusion and to human imperfections …it made me think and hope that I could live in a world where human imperfections differences are seen for what they are …that we embrace that and look at not what a person cannot do but embrace and celebrate what they can do…

How we can help troubled, lonely, isolated souls find their peace, their inner self and become whole again…

Step by step we need to find that as the world FEELS in many ways that it is spinning out of control …the time has come for all of us to take stock to really look inside ourselves …to really see how we can live a “Zero Waste Life
