Then, every once in a while in this jungle called social media, amongst the politics and cartoons and cute kid, goat, chicken,et. al. pics, comes along a really good idea. And you say "enough". I AM going to try that.
And I did. Just like that. Went to the store and bought these terribly hard to find ingredients: 1 lb. ground turkey, bag of rice (wow that's mysterious), carrots, green beans, black beans, chicken broth. DONE
Take those hard to find ingredients home and do this:
Lightly brown ground turkey in stock pot.
Add 2 cups water, 2 cups chicken broth, 1 small bag of rice
Bring to a boil
Reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook 15 minutes
Add 1 cup chopped carrots, 1 can green beans (rinse salt off!!), 1 can black beans
Cook 10 more minutes on medium-low
Stand back! Whoa...down FIDO.
I put this over 3 medium sized dogs' food for about 3 days giving each a good portion twice a day. I'm not at the point of discontinuing kibble, but I'm closer. Next time I'd like to incorporate some calf liver or other high protein doggie delight, but all 3 dogs gave this simple recipe 2 paws up. And guess what? Unlike us, they don't mind eating the same thing 3 days in a row *lol*
And I know some of you are asking "why in the hell would you cook for your dogs?"
