Reading in the Pasture, Cruisin' in the Sun, Vegan Caesar Salad and More at the Lazy Vegan!
Another fun week has come and gone at the Lazy V! It was wonderful to have the sun back, even though with it came along some chilly breezes (we're oh-so-picky about the weather around here!). I was happy to meet Snap for a bike ride - it has been a while! Was feeling pretty rusty on my bike, and it didn't help that the seat wasn't adjusted correctly (that's my excuse for having trouble with some of the hills!). This time we went to a cafe in Forestville called "Off the Track" instead of our usual outing to the Willow Wood in Graton. Since we're such creatures of habit (same place, same table, same exact order!) it is nice to shake things up once in a while!
Holding the BUN! Wasabi doesn't like to be held, so it is a rare event. But she's a good bun to let me pick her up...just long enough for the foreman to snap this photo!
HAPPY 45th BIRTHDAY to Patty!
Even though we had celebrated it early last weekend, it still is worth noting that her actual birthday was yesterday! Funny, in the photo above (Patty in blue - I'm the dweeb in the special handmade cut-offs) she doesn't look a day over thirty!!!! Also a Happy 51st Birthday to Dan in Heaven - photo at end of this posting. Patty has the honor of knowing that she was born during Dan's 6th birthday party (at least, that's when Snap went into labor!).
Wasabi had a special adventure this week. I put a gate up on the terrace and she ventured out. I think she likes the view! Above she's hanging out in her little willow tent while the foreman plays guitar.
Grooming in the cottage.
Saying hello to Solo!
Being a brave bun! We were going to go to the playground, but decided to make our own playground at home this week.
The dogs enjoyed the terrace, too.
It is a big decision taking that first step down!
Nothing like using a litter box in the fresh air!
Toby is back to being non-stop with his ball!
Taking a breather from the terrace and hanging with Solo for a bit.
I stopped by Nick's Cafe to see the newlyweds hard at work!
Another one of my favorite shirts from PETA...the circus is so awful for all of the animals!
The foreman patiently waits for Archie to approach him.
One last Archie photo!
Happy 51st Birthday To Dan in Heaven!
We love you, Dan.

VEGAN CAESAR SALAD DRESSING!
(I doubled this recipe because the foreman eats a LOT of salad!)
Directions: In a blender or food processor, add the lemon juice, water, and oil and blend/process until mixed well. Now add the rest of the ingredients and blend/process well. Scrape sides down as necessary. Blend/process until smooth. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Dressing will thicken up in the fridge and you can add more water to thin it out of necessary. Makes about 2/3 of a cup.
