Making dog food.....
The next few months are likely to be trying times in regards to making the dog food. With smells and such beginning to bother Ashley's little nose, I'm having a bit of a difficult time figuring out when to make Sam & Lola's food. We've been doing it for about 4 months - thanks to Chantal's recipe recommendation - and the results are fantastic. Lola is about the most finicky eater I've ever come across and she has only missed one meal since I started making it(and that was due to too much of Sweet Peas food this past weekend). Here's a couple of photos from Sunday's batch:
6 cans of vegetables(no salt), 6 hard boiled eggs, 3lbs of well cooked ground meat(Turkey, Beef, Chicken), a tub of chicken liver, brown rice, salmon, garlic, and a few other secret ingredients. You then freeze the containers and defrost them when needed.
It's comforting knowing what exactly is going into your dogs belly and the oils are fantastic for their coat. Looks yummy, right?
The total cost this past weekend was $19.42. This cost varies based on ingredients you have on hand, and this past weekend was a little more expensive than usual. It makes 14 cans of food at 13.2 Ozs......the containers above are 750ml.
