My Week

Filed under: animals, Fun, Handmade, recipes — Tara @ 11:05 am

We have had an absolutely beautiful and hectic week in NC. The sun has been shining and the temperature reached 76 degrees yesterday.

We have been very busy working on the new garden in the back yard; taking 150 square feet and turning it into 2500 square feet. The area will have a veggie garden, flower garden, and fire pit. It looks like total chaos right now but,  the pay-off will be worth all the hard work!  Here is a little sneak peek of one of the miniature garden areas that we completed on Monday. We took old 4×4 posts and tree branches and cut them down for the edging. The little tree is a Rose of Sharon and that is surrounded by lilies.

Tuesday was the first soccer game of the season for NC Man’s nephew. He is so cute!

Then Wednesday, St. Patrick’s Day, was Zeke’s third birthday. I made him a doggie cake and he wore a hat as we sang “Happy Birthday”.

He really loves this cake! I make him one every year! The recipe is actually for cookies but, I just bake it all together for the cake. Here is the super easy recipe:

Baby Food Doggie Cookies

3 jars baby food, meat, beef, strained — *see Note

1/4 cup cream of wheat — *see Note
1/4 cup dry milk
 
Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and
place on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in
preheated 350 degree oven for 15 min. until brown.
Cool on wire racks and STORE IN REFRIGERATOR. Also freezes well.
NOTE: Carrot, Chicken or Beef baby food. substituting wheat germ for
cream of wheat.

 

The rest of the week, we have been  in the garden. We are slowly getting all the weeds and roots out.

I hope everyone else had a fun-filled week!

Baby Food Doggie Cookies

3 jars baby food, meat, beef, veggie

1/4 cup cream of wheat or wheat germ

1/4 cup dry milk

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and

place on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in

preheated 350 degree oven for 15 min. until brown.

Cool on wire racks and STORE IN REFRIGERATOR. Also freezes well.

 

I use wheat germ in this recipe and only 2 jars of baby food. The batter will be thick and sticky. I also add a dash of garlic powder for his breath. Hope your doggy enjoys them as much as Zeke does.

This is my baby boy(who is not so little) Zeke. He is a 14 months old and 75 lbs. large Blue Weimaraner.

I am trying to figure out how to insert media. Guess I got it, huh?
