Choosy and Cheap Mothers Choose Skippy
I'm trying to declutterize the kitchen pantry - but today I totally stocked up on Skippy peanut butter. The huge 26.5 oz jar of creamy Skippy were on close-out clearance for $2 each at Food Lion. I will swing by the other nearby Food Lion tomorrow and see if they have more of the regular creamy Skippy (not Naturals), since that is the kind I use for Jacob's PB&Js. So all the pb in the above pic came to $10 even.
I like feeding the backyard birds, and here's a recipe I use for making homemade bird suet.
Mix with hands (yes, it's messy):
* 1 cup peanut butter
* 1 cup Crisco shortening (or cheap generic kind)
* 1 cup flour
* 4 cups cornmeal
I form it into fat hamburger patty size shapes and place in suet feeders. Refrigerate leftovers.
