Cherry cobbler, via a recipe from Gourmet, for Andrew and me. Andrew's making dinner in the background. This happens a lot in our household---two or more meals being prepped at once.
Ground beef, quinoa, garbanzo bean, apple, egg, and peanut butter biscuits for the dogs. The pic is yellow because I took it at night and our overhead lights aren't full spectrum. Something I'll be addressing later this year in my partial kitchen reno!
One thing I love about making dog biscuits is that once I find a decent base recipe, I can freestyle. The ingredients depend on what's on sale at the grocery store and what's leftover in my fridge. This week I toasted two cups of dried garbanzo beans, then ground them in my Vita-Mix to get garbanzo flour. I also ground two cups of quinoa into flour as well. Then I added wet ingredients---four eggs that I pureed in my Vita-Mix, including the shells (which provide the proper calcium/phosphorus balance for the protein), a cup of creamy peanut butter, and a pound of ground beef (that I got on super sale!). I also added two apples which I turned into applesauce by washing, coring, de-seeding, and pureeing in my Vita-Mix. Everything gets mixed together, then it's into the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. The result is three weeks of cookies for good dogs that I can freeze into one-week portions to keep them fresh. Lucky dogs!
