January 23rd – Cooking for Kat

It is another quiet weekend for Kat and I.  The two of us are mostly just relaxing while Dan is at work.   I got the sidewalks done yesterday, so today I just have to get out and shovel off an area of the patio for Kat to do her business.   Kat will come out to supervise.

The Patio 🙄

I made Kat a new batch of food yesterday so thought I would share that kitchen performance today. I freeze it in small bags and take out enough for a few days at a time. She also gets her dry kibble, although for now we have to soften it for her so she can heal from her dental surgery last week.

Chicken livers fried in a bit of olive oil, fresh ginger, sage, and curry.
Chopping vegetables.
Cooking orzo in chicken broth – added gelatin for Kat’s aging joints. Cooking vegetables – carrots, parsnips, turnip, celery, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and okra.
I made the mistake of putting the cooked chicken livers through the food processor. Kat doesn’t seem to mind but it is not something I would do again. 🤢

After making Kat’s food and spending a bit of time shoveling snow, I wasn’t too excited about making supper. Chef’s Salad it was, with a glass of Pelee Island Merlot to dress it up.

Lettuce, radishes, green onions, celery, tomato, cucumber, artichoke hearts, boiled eggs, ham, sunflower seeds, homemade croutons, and peppercorn ranch dressing.

That’s it for today! Take care and have a great Sunday! 💞

  1. Oh man that’s a lot of snow!! Stay warm! And so good you cook Kat’s food. I should do the same for our dog but I don’t. Ugh, I am barely cooking at all these days!! Too much eating fast food or restaurants nearby. I’m going to cook today, I try when I can! I hope you have a good week ahead! 🥰

  2. Your salad looks delicious, Ann Marie! What does your vet doctor say about Kat’s diet? I’ve never seen dog food like this. It seems very healthy for her though! That snow looks very deep, do you have two feet of snow?

  3. More than that on the patio. It does get hauled away from the streets. The vet is fine with her food as long as she gets her kibble for extra calcium. We make sure we do not put in anything that is bad for dogs like onions, garlic, raisins, etc.

  4. What a lucky little dog Kat is. I am just in awe of all the shoveling you do. Chef’s salads are one of my favorites and yours sure looks delicious. Stay warm and safe while shoveling that snow.

  5. That IS a lot of snow. We had our first snow in 21 days; it has been so dry and cold that the soils’ frost level must be quite deep.

    Although I do not currently cook for our dogs I have in the past. That looks and sounds like a very healthy meal for Kat! It’s good that your vet is good with it.
