Freddies Winter Treat

Stormy Stewart


These are easy to make and we save the bacon grease in the freezer in snall snack baggies until ready to use.

Last year we had only 4 squirrels nexts when we moved in. This winter we have 13. Anyone knowing me knows it is a special number. My guess is Freddie invited his friends over for the winter. Last year I went through ten square cakes from Dec when we moved in until April. This year I have went through 11 from Dec until now.
