A Rabbit Medical Class, an Olive Harvest Party, a Vegan Pumpkin Pie and More at the Lazy Vegan!
One of the highlights this week at the Lazy Vegan was attending a very informative (over 3 hours long!) rabbit medical class taught by a specialist vet and put on by Save A Bunny (http://www.saveabunny.org/ ) and held at the humane society. I was suprised to see how crowded the event was - there are a lot of other crazy bunny people out there! I learned even more about the rather complex rabbit digestive system and how to handle bunny health emergencies!
Later in the week I tried out a vegan pumpkin pie recipe sweetened only with dates - yum, yum...and then the foreman and I attended an olive harvesting party, and I've decided since that I have no interest in growing fruit-bearing olive trees - picking them is a very time intensive chore and you need many pounds of olives to produce a tiny bit of olive oil! And, finally, the turkeys: they're coming around in big groups to hang out at the Lazy Vegan, where they know they have a safe haven! Sadly, 40 million turkeys are slaughtered each year JUST for Thanksgiving alone - many more than that throughout the year. Check out the turkey info graph at the bottom of the post (past all the critter cam videos, at the very end)...thanks to Huffington Post!
I put one of the critter cams on the photo (v.s. video) setting and got this buck, above...but unfortunately most of the other pictures of animals were too blurred to keep!
Ta Da! Vegan pie, sweetened with dates - into the oven!
And back out!
