There was so much bird activity in my back yard today. Besides the usual Chickadees and Juncos there were Bush Tits, House Finches, a couple of Pine Siskins, a woodpecker ( probably a Downy but it could have been a Hairy), an unidentified Sparrow and a Flicker or two. The latter were cramming themselves with sunflower seeds. They ate them whole. Does anyone know if this is normal for Flickers?
This morning I made a half-recipe of these Orange log cookies which get dipped half way in chocolate ( after they're baked and cooled). Last year I made way too many cookies so this year I'm cutting down. In the cookie sheet on the right you can see what I did with the melted chocolate when the cookies were done. I dipped dried Apricots just like the cookies.... half way. They are delicious. I tell myself that the Apricots are good for me.
On the weekend I made fudge that actually turned out very well. It's that easy condensed milk and chocolate chips recipe and I added chopped Oreo cookies to it. The 'tasters" have declared it a great success.
Have a wonderful week getting the last minute things done and don't forget to take time to enjoy the process. Granny M.
