CarolCooks2…Weekly roundup…Cempedak Fruit, Cravings and more…

Just in case you missed any posts this week…They are all here in one post so grab your favourite chair and a drink, settle down and enjoy…There are recipes, music, A rant from me …News that the Uk has a new PM…Boris Johnson…He is certainly making himself known and rattling a few cages…Will he succeed where others have failed? Will he unite the country…I sure hope somebody does…

The first post of last week came out as scheduled…I was in sunny Phuket and had a wonderful time my tan is topped up my skin is golden brown…That sea air did the trick…What did my post reveal ?….we have Meth- Gators…truly… the thought is quite scary…Isn’t it? But also lots of good news…Conservation and cleanups…

Back from my 5 days od sun, sea and sand and the good was my weight stayed the same…To say that was one of life’s miracles is not true…I did increase my food and alcohol consumption BUT I also increased my exercise …Laps of the said pool and more walking…Who doesn’t like a stroll along the beach???

Whimsical Wednesday is where I can indulge myself…Mainly in past happenings…Things or people we should not forget… all sorts… The peter pan of pop…Sir Cliff Richard…Did you know he has sold over 250 million records worldwide? A short story from me…It was also National Avocado day last week…

As I was just back from sunny Phuket and catching up with my daughter I came back on a real high and had an extra spring in my steps…My head was buzzing with lots of ideas but I couldn’t settle so as Saangchai has been bugging me to do a blog post once again I resurrected an old one and let him have a few words and I might just might give him a monthly spot…

Yeah…my mistress has given in…woof …I will be back peeps..but before then I do have a guest spot over at the lovely Tori’s blog with the very pretty Lilley…on 23rd August…My guest spot debut…I might even get asked for my pawprint…Fame at last…woof

Cempedak fruit was a new one on me and my daughter and her other half just loved it…I must say the Thai batter using rice flour is so very light and crispy…I ate way too many of them but they were such moreish little crispy bundles of fruit…and that BBQ mackerel were so moist and tasty but I can get that here …It is my new favourite fish at the moment.

Lastly, it was then over to the lovely Sally @Smorgasbord Health Magazine…Part Four of her series on cravings and we all have those some quite normal like chocolate…but coal maybe a little weird and even our pets …So pop over to Sally’s and it may be a revelation and just some dietary tweaks and cravings begone…

That’s all for my roundup this week…Thank you for reading this post I do hope you found plenty to like and enjoy…Have a great weekend xxx

See you Monday for the latest recycling and environmental news and please wherever you are or what you are doing or buying think of its carbon footprint…x

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.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

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!

Dogs are not our whole life but they make our life whole… Saangchai and Soi Dogs…

Having just returned from my few days away I am still playing catchup…So I thought as Saangchai missed me I would repost one of his earlier posts which also has a link to Soi Dogs the wonderful organisation where we got Saangchai from…Without them, there would be so many more stray dogs on the streets…I will now hand you over to Saangchai…

Yeah…I get to chat with you…Woof…First time in a while but hopefully my mistress will let me on here much more… For now, this is an earlier one I wrote when I was just a puppy… Now I am grown up I don’t chew any more…and I let her friends in now although I do give them the once over a little warning scowl( growl)…

It just fell apart!

It seems like everything I just “lick” falls apart…….well maybe..just maybe I chew it a little bit……Hey, peeps welcome to my Monday blog… have you noticed that I don’t say ” woof ” so often?

It ‘s because my mistress…. she doesn’t like it and I think I am just going to have to do as I am told.

Her friends came round..again!……..So I barked… well I did growl too……but they came in any way and my mistress she got her…you will do as you are told voice on…and kept saying NO!

What’s a boy to do?  anyway I gave one last  ” woof ” and lay down beside her…but that lady seemed very nice, I slowly crept under the table towards her….she let me lick and smell her hand…she seems ok..maybe next time  I’ll be nice….she smelt of lots of other dogs so maybe she has forever dogs too..she must be ok…..my mistress is pretty cool so if she says it’s ok ….

Yehhhhh little master is here, we have so much fun…he plays and rolls about with me…today he is excited and keeps saying we are going to the beach..what’s the beach?

Anyway off we go in the truck… it wasn’t very far and I wasn’t sick..hehe…he is good fun!

Oh, this is nice and soft and I can dig holes! We run and run and went down to the water it was much bigger than that lake the other day…my mistress splashed me and it was fun…but then those things they call ” waves ” they chased me……I run off…  it scared me!

My little master and my mistress gave me lots of pats and told me it was ok…but..those waves still chased me…

SAM_7095 SAM_7096 SAM_7097 SAM_7098 SAM_7099 SAM_7100But It was fun we played ball and my little master can run really fast… just like me…my mistress wouldn’t let me off the lead…she said maybe next time…she is worried I might run off…but come on…would I?

My mistress has asked me if I can tell you my lovely readers about “Soi  Dogs”..she was watching something yesterday and she kept wiping her eyes ..these humans are silly sometimes ….she cuddled me and was really sad for a little while…

Ok..then I’ll do it……please read this and if you can give one of my furry friends a ” forever home”  like me or just……donate some money…what’s money?  I don’t use that!

BUT ANYWAY….here is the link…. please watch it as I don’t want my mistress to be sad…….and if you help…woof, woof…I won’t bark at you if you come to my home…..DEAL?

See you soon…Thanks for reading…Saangchai…Woof

Dogs are not our whole life but they make our life whole. Week 4 of life with Saang Chai.

Hi, Saangchai here my mistress has been away all week…A girlie few days she called it  …My master said they were going to get ****** every night But I mustn’t say that word…Woof!

So it looks like I am in charge on here…woof…Now, what can we talk about??? Looks like she has got the baby photos out again what is it with humans they just love to do that don’t they???

Showing you me as a pup but wasn’t I a handsome boy?…

Well while you are busy looking at those photos of me and she is telling you what I got up to or rather I am because I am very honest with you… So while you are [perusing them  I will go and chew my bone…Woof!

Laters!

Saangchai …

 

Retired? No one told me!

SAM_7052.

Welcome to my world and my life with my humans.

Woof what an exciting week I have had …my mistress thinks once again I may not be very truthful but I am and those flip-flops well I have heard my mistress telling my little master and my big master not to leave them laying about ……..she tells him that I am just a puppy and if he leaves them where I can get them I will chew them…he he and I did…she told him off…not me..woof.

But I think that maybe if I chew any more she might tell me off..but she went out in that big truck….. you know the one that makes me sick……and when she came back she had bought me lots more toys……a ball that I am really trying to chew but I can’t get through it…I think it’s one of them Kong things……..but it’s fun when my…

Woof,woof hello there…. I like this blogging bit I get to tell my story and yes in reply to my mistress I always am truthful I was only licking that door post and it just crumbled.

SAM_7043But my forever mummy she told my master off for not watching me but he was busy in the garden so he sort of was…..  he now has another job woof( ooops).But my mummy said it’s an old house and it had to be done, so don’t worry …but she also told me not to do  it again and went and bought me a big bone to chew…was I in doggy heaven or was I in doggy heaven…woof woof……and she said I was a really good boy because I…

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole.

Another day in the life of Saangchai…I do hope you enjoy and maybe you will consider getting a soi dog who needs a forever home? enjoy your Sunday

Retired? No one told me!

Day 6 of the life of a Soi Dog called Saang chai who is now our forever friend and companion.

Well the first few days were ok we were just doing a lot of sniffing around and getting to know every nook and cranny. It was strange as I had never lived in a house.I spent my first 4 months on the streets and the man who I belonged to said he would do something nasty to me if somone didn’t take me and my sister away……. so a nice lady took us to Soi Dogs who were very kind to us and we lived with other street puppies in a big run …….but they fed us, gave us injections and an operation..woof not sure about that…lots of people came to see us and my sister went with 1 of them which made me sad but…..then one day a boy and some grownups…
