I brewed up some hummingbird water yesterday and poured out the sugar water I had put in them last week, washed and refilled them this morning. You do all remember how to make hummer water, right? It's 4 cups water to 1 cup sugar, bring to a boil for a minute or two and then let it cool. I still, as far as I can tell, only have the 1 hummingbird but he's definitely taken up residence here. Oh, and yesterday we had an eagle flying overhead and when I ran to get the binoculars I realized he had a fish in his claws. Such a sight to behold!! I wonder if he or she was taking it to feed some babies. Probably to early for babies but it was cool to see all the same.
The air around here is filled with birds. We have barn swallows, purple martins, robins, cardinals, bluebirds, red-winged blackbirds, mockingbirds, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, phoebes, wrens and more, all flying around and they are all "singing like a bird". LOL!!! Sorry, couldn't help myself. It's just a lovely Spring.
Tonight I'm fixing a new recipe. It just sounded good to me. It's called Caribbean Tenderloin with Mango Salsa and I think I'll fix a big chef salad to go with it along with perhaps some crusty bread. I love the flavor of mango so I'm truly looking forward to tasting this dish. Also the recipe gives me the opportunity to use some of my Egyptian Walking Onions. For those of you who have never utilized this type of onion and wonder if they are any good. The answer is yes, very good. I've put a pictures on so you can see what they look like.
