Tempting the Canine and Human Palate

Maggie has been off her food these past few days, but content to sample ours or eat cooked chicken and her biscuits. We have to give her her meds with food, so this has been a bit of a concern to ensure she is eating enough to keep healthy.
Cheese and corned beef, once favourites, have had the Sniffing Tool turned up and away, so I was pleased today that having cut up some of her own dinner and added some chicken gravy, it got the seal of approval and most of which has disappeared.

Coming back from our window shopping, which sadly proved fruitless as the only shed choice available was a foot too long for the prepared gap, we stopped off in the supermarket to get something for lunch.
There wasn’t a queue for a change so I was able to go straight in, but the fresh produce aisle was a lot to be desired. The manager obviously thought so too as a lot was marked 30% off, and on close inspection you could see why.
I got the best iceberg lettuce of the bunch, and even that was brown on the outside, one of four remaining cucumbers and a pack of cherry tomatoes. I bought Hubby a lasagna TV dinner as he’s not a salad kind of guy.

They say proof of the pudding is in the eating, so our beetroot and radish duet joined prawns and the salad for my dinner today.

My meal above would be considered by Slimming World as ‘Free’ and as I only had a tablespoon of lighter than light mayo (not added in the photos), equated to half a syn.
It all went down very well, and so far, no reaction to the fresh beetroot.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    My husband is counting down the days for his radishes – the package said 20 days from planting to harvest! Glad to hear that Maggie is eating – I’d be tempted to eat nearly anything if it has enough chicken gravy on it!!
