I always show you Maple’s puppy stew when it’s already in the containers. This is what it looks like when it’s cooking. Today was cooking day. I have enough for the next 21 days now. She gets fed this every morning and since day 1 of giving it to her she’s had no more diarrhea, skin allergies, or weepy eyes.
Here’s a quick funny story.
You all know I cook every week for my parents. I usually do It on Mondays. A few months ago I was cooking Maples stew at the same time I was cooking my parents’ meals for the week.
After I delivered them I got a call from my mother saying, “Peggy, that stew you made was the most delicious stuff ever.” I was baffled because I hadn’t made them stew that week. Then it hit me: I must have given them some of Maple’s food by mistake.
Of course, I didn’t tell her she was eating the dog’s food. I may be dumb at times but I’m never stupid!!
Here’s the recipe if your dog has severe allergies to EVERYTHING like mine does.
2lbs skinless, deboned chicken pieces
2 lbs stew meat, or lamb cut into bite-sized pieces
2 28 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
1 lb shelled peas
1lb green beans
1 lb cut carrots
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled, and chopped
2 cups barley or brown rice ( i alternate every month)
1 teaspoon oregano
2 cups cut squash ( if you want)
1 lb corn kernals ( if you want. Some dogs don’t digest corn well)
Place everything in a stew pot. Cover with water until just covered. Bring to a boil then once it is, cover and simmer for 2.5 hours or until meat and veggies are very tender ( no longer than 3 hours).
Place into individual containers and freeze. I have 2 cup containers. Defrost one per day. Maple gets hers as her breakfast.
