Thanksgiving is coming up soon, a time of the year where we start thinking of the holiday sessions, friends and family. If you are like me your pets are part of your family, why not cook them up a special dinner to enjoy on Thanksgiving as well.
1 cup cooked diced chicken or turkey
½ cup cooked brown rice
4 oz of frozen peas
½ cup steamed cubed carrots
¼ cup sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
¼ low sodium chicken broth
Mix all the ingredients together and serve your dog ½ to a 1 depending on the size of your dog. Put the rest of the food in the refrigerator to serve him later.
For that extra special dessert treat for Fido bake him a pan of these yummy treats
1 ½ cup oat flour
1 ½ cup rice flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ginger
3 Tablespoons applesauce unsweetened
¾ cup pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
½ cup carob chip (NOT chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees combine all ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Spoon mixture out with a tablespoon and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Take a fork and make gently smash each cookie down a bit as these will not raise or flatten down.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Even though this is a special day there are a few things you will want to remember. Even though it will be tempting for your guest to feed your cute little dog at the table remind everyone that he has already had a special dinner just for him. This way it will keep him bagging for food and help everyone to have an enjoyable dinner. As well as keeping him from having foods that could be dangers for him.
