Thanksgiving Poem

SAVE A TURKEY by sponsoring a turkey at the Farm Sanctuary

Point of View

Thanksgiving dinner’s sad and thankless
Christmas dinner’s dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey’s point of view.

Sunday dinner isn’t sunny
Easter feasts are just bad luck
When you see it from the viewpoint
Of a chicken or a duck.

Oh how I once loved tuna salad
Pork and lobsters, lamb chops too
‘Til I stopped and looked at dinner
From the dinner’s point of view.
— Shel Silverstein

SAVE A TURKEY by sponsoring a turkey at the Farm Sanctuary

Puppy Treats on this Foodie Friday


Today’s post is dedicated to my sweet ol’ hound dog Maxi, who crossed over the rainbow bridge yesterday to join his friends in doggy heaven.  Maxi LOVED his fruits and veggies and these where his favorite after dinner treats!  Calvin, our Boston Terrier loves ’em too!

Puppy Chips (good for humans too) – makes 1 large baggie of treats!

1 sweet potato

2 apples

1. Slice sweet potato & apples into 1/8 inch rounds on a mandolin or with the slicing blade of your food processor.

2. Place slices in the dehydrator & dehydrate 12 hours or until you get your desired texture.  Some pups like chewy & some like crispy.  Our pups like them any which way!

We stopped buying our pups traditional doggy biscuits awhile back because they love these so much & they are a piece of “cake” to make!  Cheers!  This batch is for YOU, Maxi!
