A Special Dinner for My Feathered Friends

Well Hello beautiful! 
I'm so glad you could join me for dinner today! 
What's on the menu? Why, it Kush Kush Crumble, of course!

Oh, its your favorite?!!! And you would like the recipe? Why certainly, its oh so easy!

Bye bye now! Come again soon won't you?

 Kush Kush Crumble

3/4 cup bacon or other drippings
2 cups yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups water

Melt the drippings in a skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, stir together the remaining ingredients.

When drippings are hot but not smoking, pour in the batter. When it has set a bit around the sides, stir and turn the mixture with a spatula for 2 or 3 minutes, until it resembles scrambled eggs.

Cover pan, lower heat and cook 2 to 4 minutes longer, until the grains have swollen and the mixture is stiff. Spread on a platter to cool.

Optional additions: Add a 1/2 cup chopped peanuts to the batter or stir in 1/2 cup peanut butter at the end of cooking.

Crumple and scatter on the bird tale or over the ground-feeding area. Refrigerate leftovers up to a week or freeze up to 2 months.

FOLLOW UP: Initially I added some birdseed (black oiled sunflower) over the Kush Kush to encourage the birds to visit. Then I scattered some on the ground to entice them even more. Only problem was, my dog found it so I will not be doing that again!
