Has Spring Sprung???

We could only hope....but I think this Robin has been hanging around all winter. The cowbirds were feeding in the yard yesterday, so that is a good sign is intending to come this year.

Then this Coopers Hawk decided to visit the "bird buffet" in our yard today...
Sometimes it's hard to believe we live 10 miles from Detroit.

And one last thing to leave you with, an appetizer I made last night

Helen's Extraordinary Tofu Spinach Dip

This was a recipe I found on Fat Free Vegan site http://www.fatfreevegan.com/appetizers/tofu_spinach_dip.shtml

I pretty much followed the recipe for once. Except - I cut the recipe in half, THANK GOODNESS! Just half made a ton. Then I added some grated carrot and finely chopped red pepper. I also used the whole can of water chestnuts- because I love them. I would definitely make this again, but I would add some chopped onion, add more garlic, and maybe use the whole packet of soup mix. I give the recipe 3 out of 5 forks.

On the next addition - I will be serving Mangotinis. I just can't bring myself to write about that today - oy.

Hi! I had to check your profile to see where you're located because for a second I thought we might be neighbors! I saw one of those hawks (and hundreds of cowbirds) in my yard on Friday. When the hawk appeared, every bird that had been singing in my yard took off at once, and it got unnaturally quiet. Your photo looks just like "my" hawk, hundreds of miles away in Mississippi.

Thank you for visiting Susanv!
Maybe it's the same hawk - if Santa Clause can be all over the world in one night, maybe the hawk can too :)
