Chicken Stew is Yummy!

The Brat Pack just talked about all the good stuff they've been eating so I thought I might share some of The Dogs meal this week.

I like to get in touch with my culinary side by making food for the dogs. Scotty will tell you I cook for them more than for us...and that's probably true. This weekend I made a big batch of their favorite chicken stew. Chicken legs, broccoli, carrots, yams & cauliflower. I generally don't add any grains to it as it's usually mixed with some of their kibble.

But tonight it was just chicken, chicken & more chicken stew!

Now, there are a few unusual things about the picture above.

1). The smallest (teeny) portion is Lola's. (She usually gets much more, but she had class tonight and filled herself up on good stuff.)

2.) The cabinet the food is sitting on is bare wood and doesn't match the rest of the kitchen. (Scotty just made it and will be painting it soon.)

3). The dogs are eating on paperplates. (They usually eat from stainless steel bowls but they are in my new DISHWASHER!!!)

Yep...we finally have a dishwasher & it's no longer me!! Sitka just got a new cleaning box and is pretty psyched about it so I don't feel so dumb getting totally geeked over mine.

Isn't it beautiful??? Sherman is very happy about it too.

I've talked about the fun game we play at mealtime...here The Dogs are in action. They usually take longer to eat but the paperplates make for a quick meal.
