Randy, so glad you are back! 

The main missing elements for human food would be salt, maybe a couple of bouillon cubes, onions, garlic, pepper. 

I read you can't feed onions or garlic to dogs something about their metabolism is affected.  This is a little too thick to be a stew.  I was reading, it should be about 60% protein for dogs.  Also, this misses extra calcium.  I dried shells from a dozen eggs, in the oven, then crushed them in a blender.  One teaspoon is about the shell of one egg.  I added 4 teaspoons of rushed eggshell to the second batch, but the internet recommendations are highly variable.

Also, Rufus heads directly outside after eating this.  His system moves very quickly after eating this home made dog food.

Here are recommendations from one website, petmd.com

Sounds more like people food! Yum.

I've heard that one cup/day is enough for a small dog. Don't quote me on this.

I've been reading about dog food recalls due to contamination.  So I looked up some home made dog food recipes.  Here is an easy one I made.  It uses a crock pot.

2.5 pounds hamburger

1.5 cups chopped butternut squash

1.5 cups frozen peas

1 can drained kidney beans

1.5 cups brown rice

1.5 cups chopped carrots

4 cups water.

cook 6 hours in crock pot on low setting.

let cool.  Portion into quart freezer zipper bags, 1 cup per bag.  Store in freezer.  Take out of freezer and let thaw in fridge a day ahead.  Can warm in microwave, but check before feeding.

I actually made 1/2 recipe because my crockpot is small.

Rufus loved the stuff!  He gulped down his entire meal.

Im not sure how much to feed.  Also I want some other recipes to vary his diet.  

I may add puree made from cooked chicken bones, blended until smooth.  That way there are no sharp bone shards.

I don't do fancy cooking anymore; my back won't take it. Just simple food with lots of fresh vegetable salads and cooked vegetables.

Daniel, I like the thought of all those ingredients in your minced pie. I found the recipe for Mince pie. My goodness, it sounds good with "sweet, sour, spicy, fruity, and bitter" flavors.

Daniel, thanks for the information about coffee beans from Indonesia / Sumatra where atheists and gays undergo severe persecution. I will boycott coffee from those countries, even as I had a wonderful time while there. One of the bellhops at my hotel and I had long visits. He was Muslim. He was married and I asked if I could meet her and she was a lovely woman. I talked to her about her life and she seemed happy. I didn't ask her about how she was treated as a Muslim woman. 

Your menu sounds delicious and the pie looks perfectly perfect!!

Randy, your birthday dinner menu for your grandson sounds perfect. Wish I could join you. The daughter that is stressed, is that the farm family?

No food celebrations for us too; it's too much of everything. I feel best on my daily diet without extras. But the things you make look great!

Yes, I buy the ones under 10 lbs. now which is more than plenty for the two of us for almost a week. Then I boil the bones down for soup. It will still be enough too, if our son is able to come down for the season.
