211:365 - Your shoulder...


I wants it!

July 2014 - "Cooking for the birds"

These posts haven't happened as often as I wanted over the summer, the last one dating from April. But it was just easier to prepare a meal every night than to set time aside to make a large batch of food, that is until I was on vacation.


Last week I finally got around to preparing all the veggies, beans and grains and here is what this new mix looks like:

The vegetables, pre-cutting -





The final mix -


Ingredients:
-Black kale (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Rainbow chard (pictured - from my garden)
-Beets (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Broccoli (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Carrots (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Beans (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Red bell pepper (pictured - from the Farmers market)
-Organic quinoa
-Adzuki beans
-Mung beans
-Organic purple barley


There is one typical ingredient that is missing - chick peas! I had run out and went ahead without it...and apparently it might have not gone unnoticed, as Léa loves them and has initially been eying her food bowl in a weird way.

That is it! I hope to make another batch in August, or maybe early September and hope to have more goodies from my garden and the Farmers' market.

Day 209 alternate


I had a hard time picking which picture to post for day 209 - the decision was ultimately the Boy's.

Tucked away


Talking about his toes, which you can hardly see in the picture.
I quite like it - Joey looks adorable and so angelic!

210:365 - My toy!


She's holding onto pieces while chewing a different one - no one is allowed to play with this toy if she is (and if she's out in that room, not with the toy and another bird tries to play with it...well she'll fly towards it).

Having some fun with a swing.

207:365 - *raspberry!*


It isn't the sharpest picture, but it showcases his excitement over the star toy and, most importantly, when I took this picture he blew a raspberry, or at least made the noise.
