I love this time of year. I can stock up on pumpkin (here's why) really cheaply, the fall colors, the smells, the food, the family. It's a time, for me of reflection, new beginnings/determinations and gratitude.
My dogs make my list daily. Making treats that are chemical free and made from food I would consume myself doesn't seem to be that big of a stretch for me. Dog treats are easy, affordable, something you can do with your human kiddos too.
Here's a couple of recipes made from left overs.... Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you to all the new families, friends and supports. It's been an amazing year!
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
- Combine turkey, veges, parsley and mix well. Beat the eggs in a bowl and pour over turkey mixture. Add the flour, yeast, and drippings. Stir until thoroughly mixed and all ingredients are coated.
- Drop into small lumps (dog bite sized) onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Cook in a 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes, until brown and firm. Store in refrigerator.
