CarolCooks2…Weekly roundup…5th Jan-11th January 2020…

Hello and welcome to my weekly roundup…I am settling into my new routine of writing more although January is always a funny, unsettled month for me…I think we all get embroiled in the furore and planning for the festive season and then it goes a little flat.

January always seems to be the month for tragedies like the Australian bush fires, the plane crash, Prince Harry and Meghan wanting to step down as Senior Royals all major disasters …

Monday 6th January 2020…Recycling and Climate Change latest news…

Of course, the bush dominated the beginning of this post they have been burning now since September and have caused deaths and devastation…There is most probably more to come and many questions to be answered…

I also mentioned wildflowers and the butterfly and bee populations and our carbon footprint which is something which every single one of us can do something about and improve…

Tuesday 7th January…

I reblogged Smorgasbord Blogger Daily where Sally laid out her plans for the year and promoted myself and a few other authors and bloggers…

Debby Giess will be writing a new column over at Smorgasbord after her Winter break Sally and I have one more cooking from scratch to prevent deficiency this coming week with Phosphorous as the nutrient in question… and then Carol will be featuring her A – Z of food every two weeks. She is going to be getting her cookbook and novel ready to be published this year (no pressure then Carol ♥)

Sylvia with her authentic Italian recipes and the lovely William Price King who provides the music…So lots to read about…

It was also the last of our nutritional deficiency posts this week it was Phosphorus where Sally provides the health information and I provide the recipes, in this case, it is a lovely pork fillet recipe for starters…

That’s all for this weeks roundup…Thank you for reading and thank you to everyone who supports me by commenting I so love to hear from you…You all rock…x

Tomorrow it time for another update on Climate Change and REcycling but I have lots of good news this week although those devasting bush fires keep on burning…

We love you Australia and keep you in our thoughts but you are strong and resilient and will get through this…Much love 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 wellbeing.

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 have a great weekend 🙂 xx
