“Would you like to join me indoor skiing?” My husband asked me. Skiing? Of course I would!
A little worried though, I searched my wardrobe for my ski suit. I realized that I did not wear it since 15 years ago. Would it still fit me?
I tried it on. It felt rather tight. It made me feel like a sausage! Luckily I have still a few days left to lose some weight. A crash diet should be the best option. A lot of water, no wine, no chocolate and certainly no homemade cake!
So rather than baking a cake for us this week, I “baked” a cake for the birds in my garden. I took a silicone baking “tin” (very much recommended) and put the birdseed in it. Furthermore I melted some fat in a saucepan and pored it over the birdseed into the tin. Finally I put the tin outside, to congeal the total mixture.
The “cake” - once freed from the tin - looks fantastic. I was very satisfied. The birds will be ever so pleased with this cake, most probably for different reasons though! I put the cake on a garden table and placed it nearby my French doors.
Sitting in my living room I patiently await the birds coming to eat. I wait and wait and wait some more…however no sign of a bird. Is my cake not tasty enough, or is there still plenty of food in the garden? Or are the birds on a crash diet too?
After a few days the birds finally started to eat from my cake. Just like I started to eat too!
The ingredients to make a bird cake.
The final result.
It looks tasty.
No sign of a bird.
After a few days..
Several birds are eating from my cake.
So my birds fatten..
And I hope to lose some weight!
Finally a warm welcome to all new followers of my blog.
