What's for Dinner? - Poodle Style

A Poodle Style Dinner

This is Koko (full name Lady Kokomo) our family puppy..
She is actually 11 going on 12,and we have had her since she was 4 weeks old:)
Her name is from the song "Kokomo- by The Beach Boys"
Although she is getting a bit older, she still
behaves like a puppy. Especially when she is greeting us 
as we return home. She bounds down the stars and begins
her long lived ritual of belly rubs and kisses.
With her special, I missed you bark...

The actual given name for this dinner is "Puppy Crack"
A couple of years ago, we began to notice that
she was getting a bit too thin.
Now she has here dry food (aka crunchies),
but she only partakes when necessary.
So I decided to create a special all organic food for her. 
And several people have mentioned that
I should do a post about it, so here it is.

What you will need:
Note: I changed out the salmon with
duck or some other meat from time to time.
1 pound turkey, ground
1 4 ounce salmon steak
2 cups mixed vegetables, cooked
1 small can garbanzo beans
1 cup rice,cooked (usually brown)
5 eggs
2 tablespoons flaxseed, finely ground
2-4 tablespoons vitamin/mineral mix, optional
(I use Halo brand)

Let's get cooking:
In a large skillet, add turkey and salmon
With a wooden spatula,stir ingredients until salmon breaks apart
Continue to cook until salmon is just done
 In a food processor,grind mixed vegetables
Add vegetables and garbanzo  to meat mixture, and combine
Add rice to mixture, and combine
Now add eggs, flaxseed and vitamin mix
Continue to cook on low until all ingredients are incorporated

You can freeze 2-3 days worth in individual freezer bags 
This of course would also be adjusted depending on the size of puppy.

And as to be a fair mommy, I would like
to introduce the entire family pet line up

                                   Eden "aka Fat Kitty"                        Cabo "aka Tiny Kitty"

And one more of Koko
Cause it's my favorite of her, she looks like a teddy bear
