Mo' Rain ~ Deer ~ Squirrel ~ Bruiser ~ Migratory Birds ~ Garlic/Butter/Cheese Biscuits ~ Tucker ~ Bobo's Oat Bars


44º and pouring rain!

Yesterday we got 1/4" of rain.  Rained all day until about 3pm....

The deer were out in it... munching grass. That one little fawn I feel so sorry for with whatever is wrong with his coat...

Out in the backyard the gray squirrel was chowing down too... cute how they hold their tail over their heads when it's raining!
As I sat at my desk trying to get my blog done.... my "helper" jumps up and lays on my hand!
About that time Tucker and Sami did face time with me so I showed them the Bruiser.... they started making faces at him and he looked up at the phone and was mesmerized!

This is interesting...
1. Most migratory birds travel at night, relying on starlight for navigational cues - they recognize constellations and get critical directional information from the position of the stars in the sky.
2. Bright lights in buildings lure countless migratory birds into collisions, but the "lights out" programs in cities 
along the flyways can have a profound impact: Bird death declined by 80% when lights were turned off at night in Chicago's McCormick Place - and that's just one building...
3. Tiny songbirds can migrate hundreds of miles a day, rocketing through their spring routes up to three times faster than researchers used to believe.
4. The beams of New York's annual 9/11 "Tribute in Light" are bright enough to throw millions of birds off their migratory course. So New York City Audubon members and volunteers work on site to have the lights turned off at intervals, letting birds regain their bearing and resume their flights unharmed.
Ok, you have to make these!

Preheat oven to 375º
1 can refrigerated biscuits
3 T butter, melted
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 T fresh minced parsley
1 c shredded mozzarella
Cut biscuits into fourths and place in large mixing bowl. Add the butter, garlic, parsley, and mozzarella. Mix with your hands, coating all the biscuit pieces. In a muffin tin, put 3 pieces per tin (you will have 2 leftover pieces..just use them in whichever tin you want)
Bake 15 minutes. Best served fresh out of the oven!
Yesterday Brian sent this picture from the bowling alley... Tucker got the trophy for his age division...

National French Bread Day
Today is National French Bread Day! French bread, also known as a baguette, is a crusty loaf baked in a long, thin shape. The French have been making long sticks of bread since at least the mid-eighteenth century, but the baguette didn’t become an iconic symbol of French cuisine until the twentieth century. A new law passed in 1920 banned workers from beginning their shift before 4am, which made it difficult for French bakers to have fresh bread ready for their customers in the morning. They turned to the fast-baking baguette for a solution, and soon it became a part of daily life.
While the baguette claims the title of “French bread,” France produces many other famous types of bread including: croissants, brioche, pain de campagne, batard, pain de mie, and fougasse. To celebrate National French Bread Day, buy or bake a delicious loaf of fresh French bread to share with your family!
