Saturday Afternoon QUICKIE - Hummingbird Feeder Food
It's that time again.......
Weekly Reminder: What is a "QUICKIE" anyway?...hmmmmm, found this online: "Very little foreplay, quick finish. Usually 5 minutes, start to finish.." Perfect! Since I've demonstrated how blog challenged I am this year, a speedy, once a week drop-in is JUST what the doctor ordered (wink!).
So clear your calendar, I'm all yours for 5 minutes every Saturday afternoon...rawr
Let's make Hummingbird Feeder Food - YAY!...
Ooooo, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Hummingbirds! They love me too, as I consistantly refill the feeder for them on my porch :)
Talk about a QUICKIE, this recipe is so fast, so easy...you'll be amazed. The result is less messy (NO FOOD COLORING) and also so much cheaper than what can be found at your local garden center. You'll never troll the isles in Walmart for this stuff again, promise (wink!).
Hummingbird Feeder Food makes 1 cup
1 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar
Directions: Microwave 1 cup of water in a glass Pyrex measuring cup for 3 mins - NOTE: water MUST reach a BOIL before adding sugar if using the microwave method. On the stove top, you can bring both water and sugar to a quick boil before allowing to cool. This necessary step helps to discourage bacterial growth (Thank you Tamerie!!). Add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir until dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. Pour into an emptied and cleaned feeder globe. Reassemble feeder, hang...watch those beauties come from miles around. :)
Thanks for the QUICKIE (wink!), I'll see ya next week!
I'm still alive! I realize I've been MIA...this is what happens when real life forces to be reckoned with. ;) Hang tight friends, ...
