Doesn’t the time fly?? It is weekly roundup time again so grab your favourite drink a cuppa or a glass of wine and settle down and have a read…Spoiler Alert!... You will be hungry at the end of it so maybe have some healthy snacks or lunch or dinner ready to go…

Starting with a lovely Vietnamese Chicken recipe from Beyond The Norm it sounds delish and one I will definitely be making very soon.

Fruity Friday follows and it was the turn of the beautiful Starfruit which has just come into season here and they are ripening very nicely on the tree… Time to make some more chutney methinks…most of my chutney I make from fruits which are in season now some last from season to season and others don’t it all depends on how much I make and you always have your favourites don’t you so some go a lot quicker.

Now it is the turn of my travel posts a new feature on this blog and last week it was Travel Australia …The brilliant white sand dunes of Lancelin and the eerie natural limestone formations which are called The Pinnacles and of course there was the mention of food…just to keep your taste buds on their toes…

Then the awesome Pinnacles at Cervantes in WA …There are of course lots of ghostly stories to be told… are they true ?? Will these formations disappear as quickly as they appeared?

Next, we had one of my favourite desserts I am not a fan of cream-laden puddings but do love a piece of lime or lemon meringue pie…

Limelemon meringu Pie

It looks yellow just like a lemon meringue and if I had used green colouring but I don’t although next time I may use the Pandan leaf to give it the green colour the lime taste, however, was just perfect…Spot on!

Then, of course, it was our favourite rib recipe… now, who doesn’t love eating ribs as one of my commenters put it… My messy eater can come out…You cannot eat ribs nicely, can you ??

Obesity has been the theme of my Healthy Eating posts on the last few Tuesdays and it has or it did draw to a close last Tuesday… It was a post which when I started these comparisons that I didn’t foresee the conclusion…We all know I dislike greedy manufacturers and governments who don’t give a fig about our health and wellbeing and The Cook Islands is a very sad indication of this at its best and at it’s worst for the people of the Cook Islands…Timor Leste is like many countries who have suffered invasion and war and are still paying the price but I hope that they will turn themselves around and become healthy and not succumb and share the fate of the Cook Islands… Yep, she( Moi) is still not over this and still feels very strongly about it…No more tofu

I think I will go and stick pins in my jelly babies…

I did, however, issue a challenge and will be trying tofu for the first time…all will be revealed next week. Will it be a hit or a miss?
