Before we get into today's post, I have a quick announcement. I submitted my coconut pie recipe to Food52 and it is a contest finalist. If you want to vote for me (or for the other finalist, whose chicken soup looks delicious) please do! Voting ends in two days so don't procrastinate!
George Michael is a moderately picky eater. He loves food and freaks out over cucumber and lettuce (he was probably a rabbit in a past life) but he hates mushrooms and gets bored of his dog food after a while.
We had him on different varieties of Purina (healthy weight, healthy fiesta) which he'd eagerly gobble up when the package was fresh but as the food got stale, he'd get more particular. Recently though, we got him some Trader Joe's dog food and he's been really into it. The downside is that the packages are small so one weekend, we ran out of food.
Because I consider GM to be my son and I love spoiling him, I decided to make him some homemade dog food. If you're squeamish, you might want to click out of this post because it's not exactly the most appetizing set of photos. However, if you too want to spoil your dog with a few homemade meals, then read on!
2 chicken breasts
2 cups water
¼ cup orzo
¼ cup rolled oats
¼ cup cooked rice
½ cup carrots, chopped
½ apple, diced
2 tablespoons coconut oil
My spoiled little baby loved this stuff. I'll probably make it again on his birthday.
