Trying to save a baby rabbit

Our cat often brings in dead rabbits and mice to the house and eats them.  It's pretty horrible as a vegan but we accept that it is natural and we can't stop it happening.  Our cat is a feral cat and we couldn't keep him inside.
Today he brought in a live rabbit kitten as a gift for us so we had to decide what to do with it.  I didn't want to release it back o the field where it had come from as chances are the cat would catch it again and it wouldn't be so lucky next time.  My husband didn't want to cage it as that is going against what nature intended.  So we phoned up Cuan House Rescue centre who are going to look after it for a bit then release it into a safe place in the countryside with 2 other kittens they already have.

Lemon cheese cake bites

This is another really quick idea.  I mixed 2 heaped tsps of cream cheese with a few drops of lemon essence and a level tsp of agave syrup and spread the mixture onto oat cakes.

It's not something you could serve up at a dinner party but certainly made a great treat.

Red bean fry up

I needed a really quick meal last night so I opened a tin of red kidney beans a fried them in some chilli infused olive oil along with a finely chopped carrot, green pepper and some garlic. I seasoned it with paprika, salt and some dried mixed herbs.

Here is some delicious fruit cake I made. Just a normal sponge cake recipe with mixed spice and sultanas added.
