The co-op is alive and kicking. Our Monday sub is doing great with the meals too. This week she delivered spanikopita, falafel, pitas, a cucumber salad, tahini sauce and a chocolate tofu pie with fresh strawberries on top. Delicious!
Last night we were delivered a mustard green and tomato soup with brown rice and lemon rosemary baked tofu. The soup was served over the rice. It was light and very tasty. The tofu was superb. I was very impressed with the meal because the mum who delivered it has a sick child at home and she did a great job on the food.
Monday we went to the zoo. Normally I cannot stand the zoo, but this is not your typical zoo. It is an animal sanctuary here in the city. All the animals are rescued either from the circus, idiot owners, and other places that had no business having a wild animal. We saw lions, monkeys, tortoises, potbellied pigs, lamas, bears, tigers. “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my.” You name it. It made me sad to read the stories of how the animals got to the sanctuary, but happy to know that they now have a forever home, they are loved, cared for and being treated very well. They can never go back into the wild due to the fact that they were all around humans. The boys loved seeing the animals. Arthur was in heaven and Adam just stared and smiled. They loved petting the goats and sheep. Arthur was a bit hesitant where as Adam was ready to climb into the pen with the animals. It was a beautiful day and we had a lovely picnic while we were there.
A female lion staring us down and ready to spray us. The caretaker had a sign saying she likes to spray the visitors. Yuck! She is a naughty girl.
A sweet giant tortoise. One of my favorite animals.
