No talk of the weather this week. I give...
I came up with a bird feeder made from a rice cake. Fortunately, none of the kids had an allergy to peanuts.
You will need:
*unsalted rice cake
*pencil (or anything to punch a hole in the middle)
*peanut butter (or nut butter)
*small dowel rod
First, we punched a hole in a rice cake.
Then, we pushed a string through the hole and tied it in a knot.
We covered both sides of the rice cake with peanut butter and then pressed them into a pile of bird seed.
(If you cover one side with the peanut butter first and then leave it in the seed while you cover the other side with the peanut butter, it is much easier and cleaner.)
Finally, we pushed a small dowel rod through the completed rice cake so the birds had a spot for their leisure!
Here's what us humans ate this week:
*Butternut squash risotto (didn't have saffron, but this dish was delicious regardless)
*Green chili chicken tacos
*Spaghetti and meatballs
*Roast chicken and potatoes, green beans
