Time Travel Tasty Tuesday

Here is a tasty post from 2014.. 
Once a year Mama breaks down and actually makes us some home made cookies!!

 I, Dory,  am making sure she has all the ingredients.... wheat flour, eggs, nonfat milk (powdered), salt and our favorite...PUMPKIN!!! Here is Arty to give you the recipe!!



 Arty Flay here to narrate the recipe for Pumpkin Dog Biscuits  (found on the interwebs)! 
First you get your Mama 
('cause she has thumbs and long legs)
and have her preheat the oven to 350 degrees





 Have her break 2 eggs into a mixing bowl






 Then add 1/2 cup of pumpkin and mix them up. After they are mixed together have her add 2 tablespoons of powdered nonfat milk, 2 1/2 cups of flour (Mama used wheat but all purpose is ok) and 1/2 teaspoon of salt....





Mama added 3 Tablespoons of water and mixed it with her hands until it all stuck together in a ball!
Don't worry if there is flour bits in the bottom of the bowl....you only want to mix it until it is all together.







Have your Mama use a rolling pin and roll the dough until it is about a half inch thick and
 take your favorite cookie cutter (or the rim of a glass) and cut the shapes and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet
(Mama cheated and used parchment paper 'cause she is lazy about cleaning up).





Now it is the hardest part WAITING. You have to let them bake for 20 minutes and THEN have your Mama turn them over and bake them for 20 MORE minutes....
and THEN they have to COOL!!!



But boy is it worth the wait......



NOMNOMNOM!!!






Jakey even did his famous "Beg" trick for his...




OH YEAH!!!!
We hope you get some home baked cookies this Holiday Season!!

Happy Thanks Blogville

Happy Thanks Blogville!! 
We are so very thankful for Blogville in so many ways, it is hard to list them 
all!




I, Bilbo, am thankful for all the POTP that Blogville has sent me. Believe it or not I have actually put on almost TWO pounds and am still enjoying my pumpkin crunchies! Thanks Blogville!!





I, Dory, am thankful for all the friends I have, and that I actually got to meet some of them in the furs this past summer, Thanks Blogville!!




I, Jakey, and glad that I can live somewhere with pups who understand that stuffies were meant to be de-stuffed, de-squeaked and turned into snow (like this turkey will be soon). 
Thanks Blogville!!
 




I, Arty, am SO VERY THANKFUL FOR ALL OF BLOGVILLE
for having the faith in me (and my Vice-Mayor Mabel) to elect me Mayor!!
THANKS BLOGVILLE!!!




A Very Happy Thanksgiving to those in the USA
and Happy Thanks Blogville to all
Blogville Citizens!!!

Tongue Out Tuesday as a #ChewyInfluencer

Dory here today with our delicious #chewyinfluencer review! If you live in the US and haven't tried Chewy.com yet, this is the perfect time! They have 24/7 Customer Service, faster than fast delivery and our favorite, AUTOSHIP! With Autoship Mama can schedule our foodies and, even more important our Greenies, to be here before we run out!



This month we are reviewing Hills Idea Balance Soft Baked Naturals! As pups of a certain age, Jakey and I enjoy a treat that has a bit of crunch but more on the soft side and these treats were a perfect choice!!

What do you think, Jakey???

These do look good Dory, but I would be able to do a better evaluation if this bag was open!!


We have to say, Mama squee-ed with delight when she saw the first three ingredients: Chicken, Potatoes and peas!!



That's probably because they have been know to eat those exact ingredients for dinner sometimes!!



Ummmm Mama...while we do enjoy a bit of boxing, we would really like to taste test those nommy looking Soft Baked Naturals now please.



A bit of crunch on the outside but very easy to chew! 
Funny, Arty showed up for the taste testing.....at least Mama made HIM wear the turkey lurkey hat this year!!




 
Don't forget, chewy.com is also a great place to do your holiday shopping and it won't be crowded like the stores our silly peeps visit the day after Thanksgiving!!


We were given a bag of  Hills Idea Balance Soft Baked Naturals in exchange for ours (and sometimes Mama's) honest review. We were not given any shiny new cars, big new houses or compensated in any way for this review.  These are our very own opinions!!


We are joining the Chewy.com Blogger Network Blog Hop!! Thanks Sugar and Oz for hosting!
