Pumpkin Spice Cake (Walks, Talks, & Eats)

Hi everyone! Yesterday I made the pumpkin spice cake from Walks, Talks, & Eats; it turned out great! 


Small harvest this week; my garden is pretty much done for the year… 


Here are a couple kitty-themed Inktober sketches… 



Leela’s doing much better this week; she’s transitioning onto her prescription food, and she seems to be enjoying it, hooray! Today she decided to take a nap in the cat bed and snuggled in with her favorite toy mouse! 


The other kitties don’t want to be left out, though, so here they are… 

Daisy was joined by Cringer on the loveseat for some snuggling.

Rogue did some posing during a exploration of the house while the other kitties were closed away.

Peace. :)

Buffalo Chickpea Salad (My cat loves Daiya!)

Hi everyone! The new recipe I tried this week was the buffalo chickpea salad from My cat loves Daiya! Normally I decrease the hot sauce in a recipe, but this time I went with the full amount, and it was perfect! 


I used some in a sandwich; it made a lovely lunch

Served with chips and pickles.

Another harvest… 


Here’s an Inktober sketch… 


This week has been a bit stressful; long story short, there were several vet visits (including an ultrasound at the emergency vet), and Leela was diagnosed with IBD. The vet wants her on prescription food to help with her digestion, but Leela’s appetite hasn’t been great and the new food is bland (kind of the point, but still), so she’s on an appetite stimulant and allowed to have additional non-prescription food for now. Knocking on wood, she’s eating better today, so I’m optimistic that things are improving. Here are some pictures of Leela from this week… 





Peace. :)

Vegan Apple Chocolate Cake (AfroVeganChick) and an Introduction!

Hi everyone! Yesterday I made the vegan apple chocolate cake from AfroVeganChick, and it was delicious! (I added some splashes of soy milk to the chocolate icing because mine turned out too thick.) 




And heres one of my harvests this week – I got a bunch of snow peas and my first (and probably only) pepper! 


Here are some more of my Inktober sketches…

And now it’s time to introduce… a new kitty! Zach and I have been thinking for a while about adopting another cat, and it’s been almost a year since Buttons died. Cringer and Daisy still play with each other, but they seem to miss having another cat to play with (Leela has absolutely no interest in playing with them like Buttons did). We’ve been looking around at adoptable cats for some time now, and we finally put in an application last week. We heard back that we’d been approved, so we met and took this cutie home on Sunday… 


Her name is Rogue; her foster told us that the rescue (Noah’s Ark Rescue Project and Sanctuary) pulled her from ACCT Philly. She had five kittens (they have all been adopted) and is spayed now. She is still very young (~1 year old) and very energetic and playful. We’re keeping her in her own room and doing slow introductions with the other cats; we really hope they will get along well!


Peace. :)

Maple-Glazed Tofu (Food for Dissertating) and More!

Hi everyone! After Vegan MoFo, it seemed like such a lazy week only trying one new recipe, but it was so good that I made it a second time! I doubled the maple-glazed tofu from Food for Dissertating (but used less soy sauce, only 1 tablespoon), and it turned out great! As a bonus, the maple syrup made the kitchen smell amazing!

Served atop rice, with carrots and broccoli.

I made it again yesterday with my sister, and we had it with rice and mixed veggies. Her plating arrangement looked the best…

And I had a good harvest on Wednesday… 



Also, I’ve been doing sharpie sketches for Inktober (when possible, I’ve been trying to loosely follow and/or combine the official prompts and the 31 Witches prompts); here are some of my sketches so far…

My left hand; definitely need to practice more lol…

And a startled young witch with a baby phoenix.

Here’s a picture of Daisy from back in August; she was being a goof at the top of the tall cat tower… 


Peace. :)
