Now...here is a yummy recipe for your dog.
2 cups brown rice, uncooked
1/2 pound ground chuck hamburger
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
1. Cook the rice in a steamer
2. Steam the carrots and broccoli until tender.
3. Warm the vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the hamburger and garlic and saute until cooked through.
4. Combine all the ingredients.
5. Allow to cool before serving. Store the leftovers in the refrigerator.
OK....so for some of you who have met my dog you will know that she does not get ANY people food at all! Well there is about to be a change in her life that she is really going to like. I have had to take her to the vets a couple of times due to ear infections and put those nasty drops in her ears....which she used to hate...but now tolerates because she knows that she will get a treat after enduring it. The vet said that she is allergic to her food. Which got me to investigating other options for her and since most of the typical dog foods out there have a lot of the same ingredients I decided that I would have to start to cook for her myself. Then came the poison scare in the media about the bad dog food. That confirmed it to me. So now I have a brand new book called "Real Food for Dogs"...by Arden Moore and also "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete guide to Natural Health For Dogs & Cats" by Dr. Pitcairn and Susan Hubble Pitcairn. I still have one more book on the way with recipes for my Cat also. (why should he miss out?)
The challenge in this is going to be keeping my precious ones from begging at the table. Their food and our food is going to start smelling quite the same sometimes. I really don't like it when a dog or cat begs. We will try to keep ours from doing so by not giving any tidbits or last bites from our plates. We shall see how it goes.
Well...I am off to pack for the weekend and get a shopping list for things I will need for Shyla!:o) She is REALLY gonna like her new menu!:o)
P.S. When I was out looking for a book with recipes and nutrition info (Elizabeth was with)...one lady actually asked if I was cooking dogs...I couldn't keep myself from making fun of her comment most of the rest of that night! How could one think such a thing never mind ask it??!
