Bird Seed Biscuits

The kids made this bird seed biscuit recipe from Family Fun Magazine today, since there was no school (again LOL). It was really easy and they could do it all by themselves with items we already had on hand. We hung them out back for our birdie friends to enjoy!


Recipe (makes 2 biscuits, we doubled it to make 4):
3/4 cup bird seed
1 tbl. flour
2 tbl. water

~Mix ingredients in a small bowl.

~Grease the inside of shaped cookie cutters (we used a heart, flower, tree, and cat LOL).

~Press mixture into cutters and place on foil lined baking sheet.

~Insert a 2" section of a plastic drinking straw into each biscuit to create a hole for hanging.

~Bake at 170 degrees for one hour, with straws intact.

~Cool completely, remove straws, and tie ribbon or string for hanging.

Snow Day!

We got about 3-4" of snow so of course school was cancelled LOL! The kids had a blast playing in it pretty much all day today. It was also nice to have them home so we could watch the inauguration together.

WOW! Great customer service at Harris Teeter!

The other day I bought a cantaloupe at Harris Teeter which was supposed to ring up half price beacuse they are on sale Buy One Get One Free this week. When I got home I realized that it had rung up full price at $3.99. Since I had to go back this morning to pick up some more sale items, I took my receipt up to the service desk to get my $2 refunded. The customer service lady was so nice, she gave me a full refund of $4.07 since "It was our mistake". AND...she told me to go grab another cantaloupe at NO charge! WOW!! Really made my morning! And the kids will be thrilled since between the 3 of them they can devour a cantaloupe in oh....1.4 seconds!
