I was cleaning out the kitchen and packing all of the sealed and easily packed items. Opened items that were likely to spill, however, ended up in the trash. I found myself stopping to try to figure out how to save the stuff, since it would make such good bird treats... steel cut and flaked oats, shredded wheat 'n' bran, chopped nuts, dried fruit, and much much more. But I had nothing to put it in, so out it went! I CAN'T WAIT to have avian garbage disposals!
