In my attempts to save money, I am going to cook for Boogie more often.

Here is something I prepared last night.

Beef risotto + Honest Kitchen KEEN

BEEF RISOTTO INGREDIENTS

– 1 lb ground beef  ($1.99 at Trader Joes)
– 1 sausage chopped
– 2/3 cup brown rice
– chicken broth and water
– 1 sweet potato chopped
– a few cauliflower florets chopped
– handful of green beens
– 2 cloves garlic chopped
– salt
– thyme
I threw all the ingredients into a cast iron pot and let them slow-cook for about 45 minutes. After all the liquid had reduced, the result was a very very tasty Beef Risotto. SO tasty I could’ve eaten it myself!

I love that this pot of dog food is easy to prepare and much cheaper than buying canned food and will feed Boogie for maybe 3-4 days (in addition to THK Keen or Halo kibble)

I have just received the new recipe book by The Honest Kitchen, which includes meals that both dogs and humans can share. The recipes are all labeled – some are for dogs, some are for cats, some are for all of us.  Check out this fish and sweet potato recipe on the Honest Kitchen website.

I am pretty excited. I will probably tweak the recipes because Boogie’s dad is a fussy eater.  Here are some photos of the book. I will definitely share photos when I start cooking!

    Hello fellow Brodie award nominee!

    This is a coincidental post because I’ve just been thinking about starting to cook meals for my pup to help save money, so I’m glad to read about someone already starting the process. I’ll have to look into the Honest Kitchen recipe book.

    Boogie is so very handsome!

    […] thing I like about THK’s foods is their versatility. You can serve THK with other ingredients like cooked meats and veggies, use as a topping, or incorporate into baked doggie […]
