Thoughts of turkey and stuffing are in Ozzie's head today and mine as well! I have my shopping list for the big day and have already purchased some non perishables at the store. I have hosted Thanksgiving for several years and you would think I have it down pat by now! After all its a holiday with a pre existing menu! I still manage to fudge something up or make something that I totally forget about until I find it in the garage refrigerator the next day! Last year we cooked two turkeys on the rotisserie grill outside. The birds proved to be a bit too heavy and they caught on fire! Oh well the company makes up for what the meal lacks anyways! I have a holiday meal for Ozzie that I have already previewed to him. It is a dish of turkey, butternut squash and cranberries. All very tasty and fill of "fido-nutrients"! Here it is if you like to give it a whirl with your pooch.
Peel and chop 1 medium size butternut squash into 1 inch cubes ( I know, not fun! ) Place on lined cookie sheet and drizzle some EVOO or canola oil on top. Put into preheated oven of 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until cooked through.
Meanwhile take a pound of ground turkey and brown it in a skillet with a little EVOO until all the pink is gone. Drain on paper towel. Let both the butternut squash and turkey cool completely. This should be enough for a few meals since I mix this in with his kibble. Add appropriate amount of turkey and butternut squash mix to kibble and then sprinkle with some dried cranberries. ( note: do not replace dried cranberries with raisins ..which are dangerous to dogs. Though I believe most dog owners know this! )
Ozzie just loves it! Well there isn't too much that Ozzie doesn't love! Have a wonderful weekend and as Ozzie would say "Bone Appetito" !
