For the holidays it has been more about giving then receiving. My DD was worried about the birds and the animals that didnt go south for the winter. So we dicided to make a cristmas tree outside as well. We have put popcorn garland and edible oranments. Here are a couple of recipes:

BIRD FEEDER

2 pkg. Pillsbury refrigerated bread sticks
4 eggs
Bag of bird seed
Pam cooking spray

Separate eggs and set aside egg whites. Separate bread sticks and form into a log. Brush bread sticks with egg white. Cover all sides, roll bread sticks in bird seed and cover entirely. Roll into your favorite shape. (We used hearts, bows, squares and circles.) Spray cookie sheets with Pam. Carefully place bread stick shapes on cookie sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool. Hand bird feeder from a tree using yarn or string.

BIRD FEEDER

1 c. cornmeal
1 c. ground suet or peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. water
1 c. bird seed

1. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, suet/peanut butter, sugar and flour. Stir in water.
2. Microwave on HIGH for 3-5 minutes or until mixture is very thick.
3. Stir in bird seed. Cool.
4. Press into a pie pan or mold (milk carton, sour cream container, etc.).
5. Put in the refrigerator to cool and harden. 6. Unmold and place outside.
