Crockpot Rosemary Chicken Dog Food

I know, blogging friends it feels kind of crazy making my own dog food, but it's a crazy good feeling! This chicken meal only used two chicken breasts! My girls love chicken, but apparently this evening  they are not in the mood. I made beef and turkey yesterday, so I tried what was left over of their turkey yesterday, and then I gave them beef since they didn't touch the turkey. I will continue to attempt to get them to eat the food, but it looks like I may need to change up the ingredients or try a different recipe for chicken and turkey.

Crockpot Ground Beef Dog Food

Hey there again! After this morning, and the fuzzy girls hardly touching the ground Turkey "woof" Loaf, for dinner I made them Beef & Rice. They ate it so fast the bowls looked brand new! I also found this recipe on Pinterest. I can change it up, add kidney beans and what not. But this blend is a definite keeper!

Homemade Meatball Sandwiches

I found this great meat ball recipe at Check out Chef John's recipes. He has a ton of delicious ones I have tried. These meatballs were delicious!

Turkey "Woof" Loaf

Hey there my blog following cooking friends! Yes, you read that title right! This is Turkey Woof Loaf. It is a ground turkey meat loaf for your dog. And yes again, I am now making homemade dog food for my fuzzy babies. No, I have not gone insane.

What on earth gave me this idea?

 My kitty,  he was about 5 years old. I ran out of his usual food, and I chose another brand in a can. It didn't even look real. He ate it, but started throwing it up. I didn't think it to be odd because I changed his food. Within a week he was meowing like his tummy hurt, we rubbed his tummy he felt better, the next day he laid around all day didn't eat, barely drank water. The following day he was gone. It all happened that fast, a healthy fit kitty beating me to every room I headed for, to no kitty. I have been devastated. It is hard not having a kitty around, but I am not ready for another. I had him trained so well.

 So, as you see, as soon we started noticing my Pomeranians were being picky over their usual food a few months back we had discussed making them food ourselves. It wasn't until we lost our only beloved Kikimochi- our kitty, that we decided no more store bought crap food for our fuzzy babies. Today, was their first meals, I started with Pinterest, found tons of recipes and decided to go for it. 

The food sat there over 30 minutes untouched. 
So they obviously don't like this mix this morning.
