ON TOP OF SPAGHETTI....

.....all covered with cheese.
I lost my poor meatball 
when somebody sneezed.

We think you've got
to be fairly old 
to remember that little ditty.

But you know our Mom- 
she's older than dirt!!

 Yesterday,
Lilly and Edward
made a comment 
about our meatballs.

We wanted to tell you
a little bit about our
"semi-raw" diet.

Bonnie needed to put
on a bit of weight
and it was plain that
she just wasn't eating enough.
She would leave half
of her food!!  
Since she's on this - 
she doesn't leave any now.

Mom did a lot of research
before she came up with this
and we love it!!

This recipe makes enough 
to feed one dog for 
approximately two weeks
or four dogs
for approximately four days.  



Ingredients

1 ½ pounds ground beef or ground meat (lean)
1 ½ pounds kibble or 3 cups Total Cereal
24 ounce package of cottage cheese
2 cups of rice cook it and cool it
½ dozen boiled eggs with shell
1 16 ounce package of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots
or fresh equivalent
1 small sweet potato
½ cup coconut oil.

Directions
Cook the rice and cool.  
Mom puts the coconut oil
into the hot rice
so it gets melted through.
Boil the eggs and let cool cool.
Grind up kibble in food processor.
Grind up frozen vegetables, 
sweet potato and eggs 
in food processor.
Mix everything together - 
it's easiest if you mix one food
into the next instead of trying to
mix it all at once.


Then make into meatballs.  
Mom uses a tablespoon cookie scoop to measure 
with and then she rolls them between her palms
to make them firmer.

We wait on the floor
at her feet
to clean up if she drops anything.

Freeze.
Thaw the day before using.  
We get four or five meatballs 
twice a day on a bed of kibble 
(about 1/8 cup kibble) 


 This is what it looks like
once it's mixed up.
At the end,
Mom puts on gloves
and gets in there 
with her hands to mix it.


 Here's where she's measured
out the meatballs with the scoop.


And the finished product -
waiting for us to gobble it up.

Poor Ivy doesn't get this
except for a treat!!
We don't know how much
it would take to feed her!!


Bon Appetit!!

XOXO
Piper, Celti, Bonnie, Ruben,
Ivy
