I finally got to try a roasted butternut squash last night, and I liked it! I've had butternut squash a few times in the past, but not cooked by itself like this. I'm sure everyone does it differently, but I cut the squash in half, rubbed some vegan butter all over it, and sprinkled some cinnamon and brown sugar on it. I baked it in the oven on 400 for close to an hour....very yummy! Anyone have any other suggestions on how I should try my next butternut squash?
Here's Maggie's supper. Maggie, my pug, got a sick stomach a few weeks ago. The vet suggested that I give her plain rice for a few days, until her stomach got to feeling better. She got better after about a week, so I slowly put her back on her dog food. She got sick again the other day, so I have put her back on rice. I think she is turning into a veggie dog! Last night I cooked some brown rice and boiled a sweet potato while the rice was cooking. Once the potato was done, I mashed it up and mixed it into the rice about 5 minutes before it had finished cooking. I wasn't sure how Maggie would like it, but she loved it. You should have heard all the slurping and snorting she was doing while she was eating. That's a sure sign that she loved it. I've been looking for vegan dog recipes online and have come across several that I think she will like. Maggie is 12 and it seems strange changing her eating habits this late in her life, but it seems to be what she needs. Maggie may not become vegan, but it seems that she is on her way to being a vegetarian. The only thing keeping her from going vegan would be the eggs and cheese that she loves. Let's see.....vegan mommy, vegetarian dog child, and omnivore dad....how funny is that. :o)
I found a pumpkin pie muffin recipe on http://www.vegandogslife.com/ that I am going to make for Maggie this weekend. She loves pumpkin. I used to buy pumpkin pie desserts for her at the pet store, but for some reason they don't carry it anymore. I guess that means it's time for me to make her some. So, I guess what I am saying is that, every once in a while you might find a recipe from Maggie on here. I hope that's okay. :o)
