The chimpanzees had a fantastic feast of pomegranates for lunch today. What a great fruit for chimpanzees – it took them most of the afternoon to devour two a piece, and they loved them! Like everyday, they had many interesting foods today including kiwi, pineapple, a banana bread made by Denice (Burrito and Negra were big fans), artichokes (not favored by many, but Negra ate all of the hearts out), mini-peppers (a favorite of all) brought to them by their friends Nissa and Amy in Snoqualmie, and pasta with sauce and fresh green onions prepared by Jessica (Jamie ate most of that, food grunting the whole time). Oh, and granola that I made a couple of days ago in our brand new slow cooker/crock pot which was donated by the chimpanzees’ good friend Tamela. I had no idea granola could be made in a slow cooker – luckily Tamela also supplied us with a cookbook. I can’t wait to see what the volunteers cook up now!
