Fruity Fridays is the first post of the week and what a pretty little berry it is…I love the name Bubble berry it suits it so well and made into a chutney on some lovely brown bread with some goats cheese it really is tasty…

Thinking of food again..I had a lovely curry yesterday with my favourite black rice or raspberry rice as they call it …we grow a small amount on the farm and I really like it …

My favourite curry and you can see how much I love coriander, can’t you? but look at that lovely rice it really has a beautiful taste… Recipe for the curry will follow soon maybe next week…

Travel Thailand was next and a lovely little temple very quirky… a mixture of old and new and one I had driven past daily for a few years and it was only after I moved away from the area that I visited it..so typical that you don’t often see what is on your doorstep…

I then got all … well, you know me by now and on occasions, something starts me thinking and away I go…All I will say is Quiet the mind and the soul will speak…

No to Diets and yes to healthy Eating…This week I talked about growing your own, communal gardens letting your kids help cook and garden which encourages them to eat and also to start to question exactly what is in your food…Be aware…Those pesky, greedy manufacturers have had their own way too long…We need to fight back…Don’t buy it! Simples!

Before I knew it it was Wednesday… Carol’s Cookery Column over at Sally’s … Slightly different this week as it was a joint effort… I cooked and cured the bacon and ham, baked the bread and made some yummy Jalapeno Poppers and baked not deep fried so a bit healthier and our Sally made the Mayo…There is nothing like freshly made mayo and her banana dip caught my eye as well as being something different …If that hasn’t made you hungry then nothing will…More for us…hehe

Lastly, I had to reblog Debby’s post over at Sally’s, she is the Queen of the cruises after all and what I knew about cruising you could write on a postage stamp… I now feel equipped and all fired up to take a cruise… it was a very well written and informative post on the do and don’ts …Of cruising!
