Hey ho! Ame here. I am new to the gang. I’m kinda confused. I have a lot of questions. For one, I want to know WHY it always smells like cat food when I only get to eat three times a day? Hum? This is my biggest question. I mean, dude, really?
5 cups water
1 pound turkey
cooled and separated (the meat went on the dish and got covered by a clear bowl, which then I had to stare at without eating! The liquid went back into the pot.)
Ah! That fat! Don’t throw it away! It is good stuff; good for fur and tummies. Place the fat in a container in the freezer. If you make a label for the fat, make sure that you have your FFF (see previous post for translation) around to help you with the writing. I helped. It came out much better.
Making Broth for food:
1 carrot with green top
1 celery stalk with leaves
1 bunch of parsley
6 cups of meat broth
Cook this until vegetables are limp. Strain the vegetables out of the liquid. Cool the liquid and freeze it in 1 cup portions. (it freezes nicely in ziplock bags and takes up very little room this way) This broth can be substituted for water when you cook your turkey for the meal (mentioned by Padma in previous posts).
Here’s the thing. Celery is good for your general digestion, but not the seeds, bulb or stringy stalks for cats, no no no. I love to chew the celery tops when they come home, before they go into the pot. Yum! Maybe that’s why I am not allowed in the kitchen on cat food making day. I can’t see where a nose here, or a paw there would hurt anything! And who ever said a little cat hair hurt someone’s food?
Parsley is another thing that I love to chew. Of course I leave a nice little present if I chew it, but, hey! I have nice breath!
Carrots, cooked, are good for my heart. The green stuff on the top is not bad either.
So, here I am, smelling all this good stuff, not allowed in the kitchen to give my opinion and banned to the sun room where wafting smells are making me drool all over the nice bamboo floor. DUDE! Maybe next time she’ll let me help her cook!
