So, the kids and I were racking our brains trying to come up with a non food related post - I promised P that this wouldn't just turn into a recipe blog. However, I had on hand:
and copious amounts of crunch peanut butter which the kids have decided they no longer like (the crunchy part, that is, not peanut butter which is still a beloved food). I remembered seeing a recipe for bird food using some of these ingredients, so I decided to wing it (no pun intended) and ground up the fat, oatmeal, peanut butter, some walnuts and raisins.
I then cut down an old milk jug and made it into a feeder. I also filled a muffin tin with the leftover food so I can just add more as needed.
Do not know if the birds like it yet, because it has been raining for days, and I haven't put it out yet.
