What are you getting your bird for the winter holidays?

I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, so, if you do celebrate anything at all, what are you getting them for the winter holidays? I have a huge MSBS cart. Love to see if that is a normal holiday thing for us parronts...

Re: What are you getting your bird for the winter holidays?

They usually get something food oriented at Thanksgiving and Xmas...........Down side is they always scream their beaks off when I'm cooking anything in the kitchen so those 2 days can be a tad noisier than most.

Here's one of my pies in the making from last year...

Re: What are you getting your bird for the winter holidays?

here ya go, can't remember which recipe book it's from I have so many, all my favs I put into a folder on my PC in a text file so they're easy to find later. For the parrot cutout, I think I did a search on "cookie cutters", found that one and printed it out then used as a pattern for the top crust "vents". I can do my own lattice tops too but what a pain. I do take a shortcut on the crusts (buying the frozen 2-packs) since I spend so much time on everything else for 2 days. I always do my pies the day before anyway.

I'll look for that parrot and see if I still have it, also throw in a few more pics

Ingredients

5 cups fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 (15 ounce) packages refrigerated pie crusts (2 pie crusts)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine

1 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon sugar

Directions

SPRINKLE berries with lemon juice; set aside.

FIT half of pastry in a 9-inch pieplate according to package directions.

COMBINE 1 cup sugar and next 3 ingredients; add to berries, stirring well.
Pour into pastry shell, and dot with butter.

UNFOLD remaining pastry on a lightly floured surface; roll gently with rolling pin to remove creases in pastry.

Place pastry over filling; seal and crimp edges.
Cut slits in top of crust to allow steam to escape. (parrots are the "slits")

Brush top of pastry with beaten egg, and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar

BAKE at 400 for 35 minutes or until golden.

I'll look for that parrot and see if I still have it, also throw in a few more pics

WharfRat that's awesome!!!! Bella and Zora are getting 4 new toys, Oliver gets 2 HUGE ones. I wrapped them in that super thin tissue paper, so they'll have fun opening it.

Re: What are you getting your bird for the winter holidays?

Yummy ! I don't celebrate Christmas but I celebrate somthing else. Every year we got to pennsylvaina with my moms friends and we stay at a hotel, they're we celebrate and stay they're for a few days. Thought maybe I could get them a new swing as they only have one. A new swing and some birdie bread !
