Whimsical Wednesday…with CarolCooks2

Welcome to Whimsical Wednesday…we are enjoying some cooler temperatures as it is our rainy season but when the sun comes out it is a tad hot and steamy but everything is growing super quick and is lush and green…

Who didn’t love the story of Cinderella as a child…I know I did and when Walt Disney released his film it was loved by people of all ages as Disney films do…

30 years ago another film was released..I can’t believe it was that long ago…my doesn’t time fly…I still love that film and it is still one I watch every so often…All about a modern day Cinderella …it was none other than Pretty Women starring the handsome Richard Gere and the beautiful Julia Roberts there are so many ahhhh and tissue moments in that film…

I could listen to Roy Orbison all day long…You got it! Only the lonely!Crying ! In dreams! I drove all night!

I was trawling the internet trying to find something and came across this ..such a fascinating concept…

I watched it with my grandson and the first two groups of people who were inside these domes eventually split into two opposing factions …Astons question to me was why do groups normally only split into two? Why not three?…He loves to tax my brain…

I don’t drink coffee not because I don’t like it...I just drink other things…the rest of my family love it especially my daughter in law and this frothy coffee seems to be the latest craze….Here’s how to make it at home…

Enjoy!

I’m sure if I had to live in this maybe I wouldn’t like it as much but it looks so pretty…

Like Narnia almost, magical…

After my last disaster with making coconut ice I tried again…Initially I made a boob…Because I don’t buy tinned condensed milk ever really…It wasn’t until I opened it I realised and the fact the tin was mostly in Thai language…Oopps so I did my own little tweek to the recipe and hope it works or that will be disaster numero two…Just going to check…so far so good…

Not quite set yet and the image is not very clear but 100% better than the last effort…Recipe and better images to follow later…

Respect” is a song written and originally released by American recording artist Otis Redding in 1965. The song became a 1967 hit and signature song for soul singer Aretha Franklin. Otis Redding peaked at number thirty-five with “Respect” in the summer of 1965, but it was Aretha’s version that became legendary. The feminist anthem won two GRAMMY Awards and hit number one on the Hot 100 in June 1967.

Although I love Aretha I think she has got better and better and I love seeing her sing in this video….

So for two reason at this moment in time …I am making a comparison…A great singer and a great couple who made America proud…

That’s it for this week…Take care stasy safe and be well …xx

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 fabulous week and stay safe these are troubling times xx
