Feed the Birds
We’re big on birds around my house. My husband has a couple of feeders, and a big book where he can look up all the varieties of birds who come to visit. My step-sister, Debby Kaspari, is the bird expert in our family. She looks at birds from an artist’s point of view, and paints them absolutely beautifully! I have a painting that she did for us of a Snowy Egret hanging in my entry way and I just love it. Debby lives in Oklahoma and you can visit her website to see her work or read her blog: www.DebbyKaspari.com. The last time she was out here Debby gave us a terrific recipe for bird food and I thought I’d share with you:
Melt together 1 cup of lard and 1 cup of peanut butter. Stir in 2 cups of quick oats, 2 cups of yellow cornmeal and 1 cup of flour. Spread into a cookie sheet and let cool. Store in a plastic airtight container and crumble up to feed to the birds. They love it!
