Straight From Your Kitchen 5

WooHoo it’s finally Furiday. Me’s keepin’ me’s paws crossd dat da sun comes out tomorrow so me can go fur a stroll with mommy. She’s been really busy these last few days, and of course da weather has been gloomy and wet. Fankfully no funder boomers were involved, but neither was da sun shine. Other than that we have no big plans fur da weekend. BlogPaws is getting’ closer and closer and mommy still hasn’t been able to find anypawdy to sponsor us, but she ain’t givin’ up yet. Ifin me knows me’s mommy, she’ll try till da day it starts. It would be so much fun to go to Arizona. Me even has a couple awnties out there me would luv to meet fur to face. And next Furiday is mommy’s…birthday. She won’t let me say which birthday it is tho’. We’re  not plannin’ a big pawrty or anythin’. Hopefully mommy’ll find a little money so she can go and get a shake from da Sonic. They be half purrice after 8 p.m.

What’s dat? You wanna know what mommy’s been busy with? Well a while back me told ya’ dat mommy was gonna be getting’ on a program where she could hire somepawdy to help her with da house cleanin’ and takin’ her on errands. Ya’ know a general helper. She’s been in a similar program fur years now, but da companies won’t send anypawdy to work cuz we live so far away from anythin’. Recently they added a new program to da old program where mommy hires da help herself. We don’t have to pay them, dat’s what da program does. Well, mommy finally got approved and so she’s been runnin’ ads and takin’ calls and answerin’ emails and dollin’ out applications so dat hopefully we can find somepawdy to help us out. Me’s got me’s paws crossed we find somepawdy trustworthy and willin’ to work.

Anyways, we’re gonna share another Straight From Your Kitchen Treat Recipe with ya’ today. We hope you all are enjoyin’ these recipes. We’re not sure how much longer we’ll do this, but it has been fun. Anyways, remember, these are treats and therefur Not nutritionally complete. You can substitue any protein/meat to suit your furries taste.

Shton 

Makes 2-4 Servings

4-5 ounces White Bait (chicken, livers, duck, rabbit, beef, etc.)

4 Egg Whites, beaten

1 Handful Parsley and/or Catnip

Pat of Butter or Olive oil for the bottom of the pan

1. Prepare your Protein

2. Mix Egg Whites and Parsley and/or Nip 

3. Melt Butter or heat Olive Oil  

4. Pour ingredients in hot skillet and stir gently till egg is set.

5. Cool and Serve. 

As you all know we don’t eat fish, so me likes chicken or duck better. Egg whites are a pawsum protein source  and easily digestible, and parsley is a natural breath fureshener. And of course Nip is great in anythin’. And bein’ from da South, we think everything’s better with butter. MOL Me sure hopes you enjoy your omelets. And hey maybe ya’ can even talk your peeps into addin’ a little bacon.

Meowllo everypawdy hope your weekend was great. With all da excitement dat went on last week we didn’t get to post a new treat recipe. It’s still stormin’ here and mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s appointment today so looks like we won’t get much catputer time.

 Dezi close up on arm of chair

Mommy had called to check on mr. W and he started orderin’ her around. Yep he sure did. He’s very gruff and told her to get under his bed and find his phone and bring it over to da hospital to him (45 miles away). Now let me tell ya’ mommy’s gotten on to him fur this very thing befur, and so of course she lit into him with da force of da lightnin’ from da skies and backed him down to purrleases and thank yous. Of course mommy ain’t gonna go crawlin’ round on his dirty floor lookin’ fur no fone. But she can take a broom and swoosh under there. As fur da goin’ over there? Well she told him da only way dat was happenin’ was ifin she was drivin’ his car, usin’ his gas and puttin’ da wear and tear on his vehicle, and then and only then, at her convenience. He’s got kids ’round here dat he could have do these things, but nopawdy likes to be ordered around. Well anyways, dat’s kinda what’s been goin’ on here.

 

Now let’s get back to da recipe. Purrlease remember these are treats and not nutritionally complete. You may substitute any meat for the protein ingredient, and they can be eaten by all the meat eaters in your house. So today we’s gonna give ya’ a recipe fur some moist treats.

Moist Bites 

1/2 Pound ground beef/chicken/turkey (or whatever protein you want)

1 Tbsp. Grated Cheese

1/4 Cup Dried Catnip

1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs

1 Egg (beaten)

1 Tbsp Tomato Paste

Preheat oven to 350°   Makes about 2 dozen

1. In medium bowl mix ingredients in order of listing 

2. Using your hands, Roll mixture into walnut sized balls

3. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet

4. Bake for 15 minutes till balls are lightly browned and firm

Fridays’ Straight From Your Kitchen 2

(Dezi sings and dances) ♫ ♫

WooHoo it’s finally Furiday. WooHoo it’s finally Furiday. Da sun is shinin’ and da rain has stopped. Me’s so excited me’s gonna blow me’s top. WooHoo

 Dezi laying on cat tree and meowing

Oh Meowllo everypawdy, are you all happy dat it’s da weekend? Well me has a special treat fur you all today. Yep, me’s treat recipe posty was a big hit and so we’s gonna post another one fur ya’ today. Now ‘member these are treats straight from your kitchen and NOT nutritionally complete. We had one negative comment ‘bout how da last treat wasn’t species appropriate. To dat we replied, Not any worse than most of da pet food and treats on da market, and you don’t have to make it. So anyways let’s get on with our new recipe.

Sweet Dezi on cat tree

Now me wants to remind you dat you can use different proteins (meats) in most of these recipes. Mommy doesn’t like to feed us fish, so she often substitutes chicken, rabbit or duck fur da protein source. And these treats are edible by all da carnivores in your family. Another trick me furgot to tell you ‘bout last week is dat mommy often adds catnip to da recipe. Today we’re gonna take a little trip down under to Australia fur our recipe and we’re gonna make Kangaroo Hoppers. This recipe makes approximately 20 – 30 small balls.

Kangaroo Hoppers

1/2 pound shrimp, cleaned 

1 Tbsp. Kelp powder or catnip

1/2 tsp vegetable or olive oil

1 Cup crushed Corn Flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°

1. Clean and de-vein shrimp.

2. Boil until pink and cooked through

3. When cool, Puree shrimp and add Kelp powder/Catnip and oil

4. Roll into small balls and then roll through the Corn Flakes to coat (Corn Flakes add a little crunch)

5. Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet or parchment paper for 10 – 15 minutes.

6. Cool and Serve.

7. Store leftovers in airtight container in fridge

Alas, no kangaroo in da Kangaroo Hoppers, but they are good. Now some of you are saying…kelp powder? Yeah, kelp powder is actually full of minerals and Omega fatty acids. It’s also a source of protein. Now we all know there’s nothin’ nutritious bout da corn flakes, but they do help add a little crunch to da bite. Ifin ya’ try these, let us know how they went over in your house.

 Dezi lays in the cat bed

Me’s joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da weekly Pet Parade Blog Hop as always. Mommy told me last night dat she had some secret plans dat might result in a surprise fur me, so we’ll be ‘round to visit ya shortly. And me guesses we’s all gonna have to wait to find out ’bout mommys’ secret plans.

 Dezi coyly looks at the camera from her perch on the cat tree

What are some favorite proteins in your house?
