Yes, it's true that I'm into herb gardening in a big way. Take a look. Okay, to be truthful it's herb gardening in a small way. Chives and parsley seeds planted in two-inch pots.
Another fun project enjoyed with P3 last weekend was making homemade suet cakes for the birds. Here's the secret recipe that's been in my family for generations. Not really, it was in the newspaper a couple of weeks ago.
1 C. crunchy peanut butter
1-1/2 C. minute oats
1-1/2 C. cornmeal
1C. white flour
1/4 C. sugar Soften the peanut butter and lard in the microwave until soupy.
Mix in flour and sugar.
Add cornmeal followed by oats.
Put in 8-by-8 inch container and refrigerate.
When suet hardens, cut into pieces to fit
your backyard suet holder.

After all that seed planting and cooking for the birds, we capped off the day by going to a GB Gambler hockey game. It was the 12th Annual Teddy Bear Toss. Bring a new teddy bear to the game and throw it on the ice after the Gamblers score their first goal. All bears are given to young patients in our area. It was announced that 7,066 bears were collected. How'd they count those so fast?
