Well hello there. How are you? We are great and have been cooking up some goodness as usual. In the theme of E.A.T. World. I cooked some Moroccan food. It was so good. I made Moroccan spiced tofu, a rice salad from Vegan Fire and Spice and some sauteed collard greens. I also cooked this meal for my dinner co-op. The boys loved the rice salad.
Over the weekend, Joshua and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary. Seven years ago, we were married in Scoland, in the Kingdom of Fife, overlooking the Firth of Forth in the little village of Crail. I am so blessed and we are even more blessed with our beautiful little guys. Happiness!
Saturday Josh had to work, so the boys and I went to a birds of prey exhibit. A conservation society in a city near ours rescues birds of prey who have been injured, or raised by humans and cannot go back into the wild. They brought several types of birds out for people to see and learn about. We saw hawks, an eagle, owls and a vulture. Arthur loved it. It was interesting to hear about each bird and how they live in the wild. It makes me sad to see that people would intentionally injure these beautiful creatures. The eagle had been shot by a person.

As I said in my last post, Spring has definitely hit here. I love it. Sunday there was a kite festival in the park. We packed a picnic and the two kites DJ sent us. Thanks DJ! There were kites everywhere. We found a nice spot under a shade tree. We enjoyed our lunch. Little bear Adam walked around and Arthur and his Daddy flew a kite. Afterwards we walked to a local coffee shop, had an ice coffee and some vegan cupcakes.

Kites everywhere. There were kites all over the sky. All shapes and sizes. It was great.

Sunday evening we grilled. Arthur has been asking his Daddy to bbq. So we roasted some portabello caps, tofu pups and potatoes on the grill. It was terrific. I served the meal with a salad.
I am posting a picture of this salad for a reason. It may not look like an exciting salad, but it is. You see, the greens in this salad came from our garden. It has three types of lettuce greens in it. The lettuce was perfect. Cut fresh, washed and placed in the salad bowl. There was no long truck ride, being handled by several people, sitting in the grocery store under artificial light, and living in a plastic bag on the car ride home. Nope, this lettuce came straight from our organic backyard garden to our dinner table. Perfect!
Yesterday we dug up the ground for our tomato and basil garden. We planted the tomatoes and I plan to get the basil this weekend from the organic garden store. There are 2 beefsteak tomato plants, 2 roma tomato plants and 2 yellow tomatoes plants. We started the garden with perfect timing because today it is raining. Since we were in the backyard gardening and the boys were playing, I made us chili cheeze hot dogs for lunch. I poured a nooch sauce on top. It was awesome. A perfect Spring lunch.
Well I am off to do a bit of cleaning around here. Hope you have a lovely day.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
