Getting ready for the trip

November 9th, 2006 at 11:22 pm

I just refilled my Zetia prescription ($24) and picked up a gift card at Wal-Mart ($25). I'm making a heap of dog food now to last all of next week. I think I'll put off the laundry till tomorrow night. There should only be two loads.

Wouldn't you know it, just when I'm trying to wrap things up at work I get extra assignments? Nobody's fault, but it's frustrating.

Meals today:

Breakfast: Granola and milk, ginger spice latte
Snack: Popcorn
Lunch: Beef stew
Snack: Yogurt
Dinner: Ham sandwich, sweet potatoes, milk

    That ginger spice latte sounds interesting! Do you make it yourself?

    I'm just curious how you make dog food? I have a geriatric kitty cat in my zoo that I periodically have to cook for due to tummy flairs but thats just turkey and greens.

    Extra work popping up late in the day. It always works out that way does it not! Does extra work pop up more often at 9 am or 4 pm? That is a no brainer!WinkSmile

    What pray tell is a ginger spice Latte?

    The ginger spice latte is really just regular brewed coffee (whatever they make at work) to which I add some sugar and pumpkin spice creamer (by Coffeemate). Not really a latte, that's just my shorthand way of tracking what I ate/drank. It IS good though!

    As for the homemade dog food, I highly recommend the book, "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats." I'm not sure if the edition that's out there now is the same one I used 12 years ago, but I followed the recipes in that book. For my dog, it is basically a formula of 1/3 protein (chicken, beef, eggs, cottage cheese, fish -- all cooked) and 2/3 carbs (whole wheat pasta, brown rice, whole wheat bread, potatoes, sweet potatoes) plus a handful of vegetables on top. Any combinations of the above are fine. I also add a B12 vitamin, a garlic pill and brewer's yeast tablet. Sometimes I add wheat germ, too. My dog loves his food, and he is a very healthy 12-year-old.

    My wife make food for our 2 cats. Since we have started doing that we no longer have to buy frontline to treat the cats for fleas. Frontline used to be a must as one cat is allergic to them and both cats are allowed outside on leashes when its nice. We also make a mix called vita mix to give them once- twice a day made from various things like brewers yeast, kelp powder, lecithin, wheat bran and bone meal. Their food consists of 60% protien, 20% vegetable, and 20% grain. We use the book The New Natural Cat.
