Workshop at Mary's

Mary asked us to bring some certain items for a surprise workshop. We were to bring a cookie sheet, cookie cutters with no handles, wax paper, and some rubber gloves. We were all pleasantly surpirsed to find we were making bird seed cakes.

We were supplied with a bowl, a drizzle of corn syrup, and powdered gelatin. Mary poured a cup of hot water into each of our bowls and once we had the gelatin and corn syrup all disolved we added a few cups of bird seed which Mary also supplied. This bird seed looked more like granola as it was full of nuts. I wanted to munch on some myself! Then we packed this mixture into the cookie cutters. Add a string for hanging and pop them out after they are dry and the birds will love them!
 Cute, huh!!

Mary also had cooked up a delicious pot of home made chicken noodle soup with hand made noodles and home baked bread! Wow! It was so good we nearly polished off the pot and she had intended to be able to serve the left overs for dinner. Sorry Mary, it was just so delicious we couldn't stop! Rocky said, "I will finish it for you!"
It was another fun day on the peninsula. Thanks for your generous sharing of goods and knowledge, Mary.
