First Snow Squirrel and Recipe

First Snow Squirrel and Recipe

Snow started aggressively this morning but has tapered off. They're predicting 10-14 inches for tonight. Had to move my squirrel food tray under the overhang and they haven't found it yet. Made the No Melt Suet Mix yesterday and it smelled so good I wanted to eat it. It's so easy to cut into bite sized pieces. Will no doubt make it rather than the mix with Crisco. Here's the recipe:

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup lard (not vegetable shortening)
2 cups quick-cook oats
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup plain flour
1/3 cup sugar

Melt lard and peanut butter in microwave. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into square or rectangular container. Refrigerate and cut into squares and serve the birds (and squirrels). They love it!

I'm going to have to try to make that suet. Love the falling snow in this photo. Wish we'd get some!

Well how cute is he/she? Your squirrels are alot smaller than ours...this one is quite delicate. Very nice photo.

That is a lot of snow for you isn't it? the amount I made from this recipe is half gone already to attest to the fact that they like it!

You get very good results shooting through the window.

Beautiful contrast. I think some day I will be buying that lens.
