I was browsing through a magazine I picked up at a thrift store a few days ago and came upon this article. (FYI, I had taken a very clear photo of this but it and 10 other photos disappeared from my computer! GGGRRR) I immediately wanted to start baking! Does this happen to anyone else?
I plan on trying a few recipes from this article over the weekend. It was too late in the day to start a new recipe in case I didn't have all the ingredients. They all sound delicious. Larry's Braided Sweet Bread, Orange-Honey Bread, Apple Focaccia......it goes on and on. I had a large bag of reduced bananas so I made Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins first.
This was one of the other clear photos that disappeared. Next I made Dinner Rolls. They are yummy with honey!
Still very icy and cold here.
Do you remember a couple of posts ago I mentioned about a squirrel that was toppling over? We assumed he may have been eating fermented crabapples but that does not appear to be the case. The poor thing obviously has fallen out of a tree or was born with something wrong. When he walks he is always veering to the left. He is eating well and is quite plump so I assume he is managing o.k.
I put lots of food out everyday. He was under the feeders for a good hour this afternoon eating. The other squirrels pretty much leave him alone when he is eating.
Just after I snapped this photo he toppled over and laid there eating his peanut. He jumped back up after a few seconds none the worst for wear. I will be surprised if he manages to make it through the winter. He can't run very fast so I imagine he will make an easy target for the hawks. I know it is nature but it still isn't pleasant!
