I hope you have been having a great weekend. I was on the Happy Herbivore site Friday and found a few recipes that I wanted to try, so Friday night I made the Cajun Chickpea Cakes. The recipe can be found here. Friday's supper consisted of a baked potato with vegan butter, herbamare, and nutritional yeast on it. I also had pinto beans and the Cajun Chickpea Cakes. The cakes had a great flavor but were a little on the dry side. I ended up getting some Country Bob's steak sauce out of the refrigerator to dip the chickpea cakes in. That helped tremendously. Country Bob's even ended up on the beans and the baked potato....yum! I'm sure I will make the chickpea cakes again, but they definitely need a sauce or some kind of gravy to go with them.
On Saturday's I always cook Maggie's food for the week. Here she is looking all excited, trying to wait patiently while I make her food. I cook Maggie's food myself now, since she kept getting sick so much. She's been eating like this for several months now and hasn't been getting sick at all, and no more upset stomachs....YAY! This new way of eating for Maggie has been great for her! I feel so much better knowing that she's not getting all the preservatives and by products that's found in most dog foods.
Here's picture of her food. It's brown rice, carrots, broccoli, a little oatmeal, some nutritional yeast, a little dried parsley, and some canned pumpkin. I did add some chicken to the rice later. Sometimes she eats a veggie meal, but some times I do put chicken in her food. I want to make sure she is getting enough protein. I try to mix it up differently every week so she doesn't get bored with the same taste. This just reassures that Maggie is very spoiled doesn't it? :o)
Earlier today I made Happy Herbivore's raw ice cream. The recipe can be found here. This was yummy! I did add a few chocolate chips of course. I can't have ice cream with out adding a little chocolate.
I've never done a giveaway, but I have been thinking about doing one. Several people have made comments about wanting to try the County Bob's steak sauce. What do you guys think? Would you like to see a giveaway of a bottle of Country Bob's? I'll be back tomorrow with another picture of Country Bob's and a giveaway post. :o) See you tomorrow....
