Giveaway from e-i-e-i-omg!

So, I recently entered a chance to win a book that Susan was giving away over at e-i-e-i-omg. I hoped for the chance to win the bird book shown below, but I couldn't figure out what kinds of recipes could be in a book called "...FOR the birds." I thought maybe this was a recipe book with chicken/turkey/duck recipes which is always good, too.

Well, I received my book yesterday, and it is literally FOR the birds! Inside it shows how to make different kinds of feeders (hanging, suet, and ground) and details exactly what kind of food different types of birds enjoy the most! In the fall, we will have a great time looking at "the red book" (that details all of the birds in North America), finding the birds that are in our area, and creating specialized feeders just for them! What a great learning experience for the boys (and the moms!).

As an added bonus ("It's for the boys," Susan says), she threw in a picnic cookbook. I was salivating and wishing for warmer weather. When Peanut saw that book, he said "But, mom - we LOVE picnics!" Yes, we do, handsome boy!

Thank you, Susan! You made our night!
