Happy as a Clam

Tank's PF has passed and she's recovering really well. What a relief! Her peach fuzz fur is growing back in and is cone free as of today!

31st Vegetarian Food Festival: Part I

This past weekend was the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival. Rich and I look forward to going each year. We decided to check it out on the first day, which ended up fitting into our schedule perfectly as we had passes to a movie screening later on that evening in the downtown area. It also didn't down pour, which was a huge bonus.
I took a lot of pictures, so take a look!

Mint Leaf Butterfly

As I was bringing back the mint leaves that I picked from the garden into the house, I noticed a something clinging on to one of the leaves. I shrieked at first, 'cause ew, squishy caterpillars. But then I realized it wasn't moving and upon closer inspection it was actually a cocoon.

It's Morphing Time

It's almost autumn, which means it's time for Tank's PF (pemphigus folliculitis) to take over and for her immune system to attack her body. Twice this year! So shitty.

Following our afternoon tea, we joined the 4pm group to tour the rooftop garden which was lead by one of their chefs.

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
