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.
