Killing animals is unethical,
Eating meat is unhealthy,
So why do humans do it,
This unsightly unwholesome crime?
And entirely unjustified.
Pop and crackle,
Fizz and bubble,
The witch stirs her cauldron
On the fire in her hovel.
She shrieks at the night
It will happen alright,
The life-giving force
Of her potion’s in sight.
It’s got onions and greens,
Carrots and beans,
There’s garlic and lentils,
She’s hungry and keen
To gobble it up,
From bowl and from cup,
The magic of plants
She’ll slurp and she’ll sup.
Chickens are people
Just like dogs.
They enjoy dust baths
And jumping on logs.
Chickens will play games
Like ‘chase’ and ‘steal your smalls’.
They’ll splash you in the paddling pool,
Though not keen on fetching balls.
Some of them are gentle,
Some of them are tough.
Some of them are bossy,
Some timid and soft as fluff.
They all have personality
And every one is different.
Just like Rover and Fido and Max
They might be quiet or exuberant.
Remember I wanted to make a new hat
With the yarn from old hats I’d unravelled?
Remember I said Random Rose made a hat,
A beret with ridges she cabled?
Well I followed the pattern that Rose kindly shared,
Though the yarn had lost elasticity.
The needles I used were not quite the right size,
But I wasn’t going to let that stop me.
So I finished my hat and I’m pleased how it went,
Cream and purple go well together.
I admit it turned out bigger than it was meant,
For my head is decidedly smaller.
As luck would have it, Miranda’s got a big head,
Though not the metaphorical kind.
So I decided to give it to her instead,
And I honestly really don’t mind.
New business cards we have at last,
“Hurrah! Hurrah!” we say,
We just can’t wait to slip them in books
Or otherwise give them away!

A cake is a cake
That you could make
And it’s unhealthy
Make no mistake
Unless it’s a cake
That you don’t bake
Made from fruits and nuts still raw!
My first attempt at making raw cake and it’s deeelicious if I do say so myself 😉
Having just finished reading 12 Steps to Raw Foods by Victoria Boutenko, I couldn’t wait to have a go at making raw cake. At the back of the book are some really useful recipes which are designed to be adapted to suit your own tastes so, using the Generic Cake Recipe, I had a go.
For the chocolate base I combined 1 cup of ground walnuts, 1 tablespoon of flax oil, 1 tablespoon of agave nectar, and half a cup of cocoa (that should have been raw carob powder but I don’t have any of that yet).
This made a stiff, damp mixture which I formed into a cake shape on the plate.
Then for the topping I combined half a cup of fruit (banana in this case), half a cup of ground cashews, and half a cup of fresh coconut. I put all these through my manual juicer (using the smooth screen) so that they were all ground and mushed, and then I mixed them together with a fork.
Then I spooned the topping onto the base and put it in the fridge to chill. So easy.
Now I’m off to have another piece! 🙂
How about a strawberry one?
For the strawberry version I just omitted the cocoa from the base and added a teaspoon of vanilla essence.
Then for the topping I combined half a cup of mushed strawberries, half a cup of ground cashews, (both of these were put through the manual juicer as above) and 1 tablespoon of agave nectar.
All together now:
Here we go round the shopping mall,
The shopping mall, the shopping mall,
Here we go round the shopping mall
On a dirty, dusty morning.
This is the way we’re kicked about,
Knocked about, blown about,
This is the way we get about
On a cold and windy morning.
This is the way we go for a swim,
How we slip in, how we drop in,
This is the way we go for a swim
On a bright and blustery morning.
This is the way we float down stream,
We float down stream, we float down stream,
This is the way we float down stream
On a hot and sunny morning.
This is the way we go to sea,
We go to sea, we go to sea,
This is the way we go to sea
On a calm and cloudy morning.
This is the way we poison the life,
Strangle the life, entangle the life,
This is the way we choke the life
Out of each and every ocean.
Here we go round the ocean gyres,
The ocean gyres, the ocean gyres,
Here we go round the ocean gyres
For a hundred thousand mornings.
