Black Cap Chickadee

This afternoon was rather interesting. I got to take care of a baby Black Cap Chickadee at my sis’s house. Her brother-in-law had to cut down a tree in his yard due to the fact that it was dropping branches all over his yard. Unfortunately, there was a nest with 7 baby birds in the tree. The mommy bird fled the scene and the baby birds were left on their own. My sis took 5 and he kept 2.  She has been doing her best to take care of them but only 1 has survived. I had to feed the little one every 20 minutes – he’s quite the eating machine.  I used a dropper and it would open it’s mouth for me to feed it.  I knew it was hungry because it would start to cheep and flap it’s wings until it got my attention. Once it had a bite to it would calm down and nod off to sleep which was only a quick 20 minute nap. The Chickadee was so cute, I really hope that she has success with this guy.

Onto food. I made a batch of Nutritional Yeast Veggies and decided to show you how I make it.

First I chop up the veg – 1 red pepper, 1 zucchini and 1 summer squash.




I then add fresh squeezed lemon juice, a few tbsp of water, lots of Nutritional Yeast and chili powder.

I toss it all together and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.  The final picture is the finished product with all the saucy goodness.

I had some in my salad at lunch and it was delicious. 

It was even better in my dinner salad – the longer it sits the better it gets.



For dinner I also had a Sunshine veggie burger topped with Almond cheese.  I bought this cheese for D who has not been eating it.  I don’t want it to go to waste so I will try to use it up.  It is not that flavorful – kind of bland. It is a good thing that the Sunshine patty is super flavorful – the cheese needed help.

I ate the patty on a Gluten Free roll with organic Ketchup and 365 brand veggie chips.



I also had 4 small squares of dark chocolate – a little sweet ending. 

I am so ready for bed. I hope that I can make it there early tonight.  So far my little man’s tummy is feeling good although the night is not over yet.  I am keeping my fingers crossed for a tummy ache free evening. 

I hope you had a good day.  I am cleaning in the AM so I d need to rest up.  See you in the morning.

Sorry to hear that you don't like the almond cheese:( I really enjoy it, but I do not eat dairy cheese so I guess I am used to the bland flavor!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
