Maggie wanted to share what she got for Christmas. She got a new bed and apparently loves it. It is an eco bed made from recycled water bottles....pretty cool huh. At first she just sniffed the bed and walked away. I was a little disappointed, but then I realized that she smelled her homemade treats that Santa left her. After she got a treat, she crawled into her new bed and sat in it....that made her momma happy. :o)
Below are the Christmas treats that I made for Maggie. I also made some for for our doggie family members. From what I've heard...all the doggies loved them. Here's the recipe I used to make them. I will be making these quite often.
Peanut butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs or (2tbs flax seeds & 6 tbs water mixed together)
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat over to 350 degrees
Mix the flour eggs (or flax eggs), pumpkin, peanut butter, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. If the dough seems to dry and isn't workable, you can add a little water. the dough should be dry and stiff though. Roll dough out to 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
I cooked half of mine for only 30 minutes, so they would be softer for Maggie to eat. The treats that I gave away, I cooked for 40 minutes. These are Maggie approved, and that says alot, because she is a very picky eater. :o)
One night over the holiday weekend, we went to eat at the Thai Cafe. This was the 2nd time that I have been there, and I love it. They have the best and biggest veggie "egg" rolls I have ever seen. After I had eaten half of it, Tony reminded me that I didn't take a picture of it. It was very hard for me to stop eating long enough to take the picture. :o) Look at all that goodness!
I ordered the Buddha's Delight. The bowl was filled with all kinds of veggies and tofu. It also came with a bowl of steamed rice to put the veggies over. I barely made a dent in all this food, so I had plenty to take home for leftovers. No leftover egg roll though....Look at all the veggies.... Have you ever eaten veggies, but you didn't know exactly what you were eating? Well, that was me eating this. I only knew what half the veggies were in this bowl of goodness. Sometimes when I thought about and wondered what all I was eating, I got a little weirded out. I'm strange like that.....I like to know what I am eating.
Now the count down begins for New Years.....
