Good afternoon from warm but not so sunny Thailand and welcome to my weekly roundup which is quite smaller this week as I haven’t been quite so prolific with my writing… Lots of thoughts nothing put down just a bit of an alright week with my internet problems still hovering in the background so if you haven’t seen me then I should soon be back up and running …Full steam ahead once more 🙂 x
My first and ( only) post this week on Orienthailiving was one of my favourite places a very pretty temple way up in the hills in the Phrang Nga district of Thailand…Well worth a visit and it has never been absolutely jam-packed with tourists like some of the other temples we have visited maybe due to its location and on the way back we always stop at one of our favourite seafood restaurants again a little off the beaten track but very charming.
Then it was the turn of Fruity Fridays and the luscious Mango it is now well into season and they are everywhere… Beautiful eaten green with a spicy Thai dip and wonderful made in Chutney or just a lovely smoothie 🙂 x
Egyptian flatbread are an amazing way to use up cold Lamb not only do they look impressive especially if you have guests but the taste is spot on…Just finger licking good.
Then I did a post on something which many of the men suffer from here GOUT and most do not watch their diets apart from one who learnt the hard way that keep having injections does not always do your health any good and the danger here is that you can walk into any clinic ask for the injection and away you go …I just wish more people would realise that with a few tweaks to your diet many ailments can be avoided …The plus side less medication and maybe when you really need the doctor his queue is smaller.

Lastly we have Ton Mon which are Thai Mulberry’s not only are mulberries very nice with some apples in a crumble and my very first attempt at deconstruction ( don’t ) tell my mum I have ditched her crumble recipe…
I will fess up and tell you…I burnt the first one …set the timer and went to write..Before the timer even went off I could smell it…That burning smell…
But take two:- It was perfick all I got was a teaspoon full the rest was quickly taken away as soon as my camera had clicked and devoured by the Mr. Anyone would think I never make puds….Well I am a bit mean…I don’t make many but he loved it! https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2018/03/28/apple-and-mulberry-crumble/
