In this episode, I discuss knitting and some sewing in between visits with family and friends. I talked about my high school reunion experience around minute 21:40.
We celebrated the grands birthdays by visiting Cedar Point.
Autumn and Lizzy were just as excited as I was to be high in the air overlooking the park!
This was the return trip in the sky at the end of our visit. Hubs and I were tired but happy!
I took the grands toy shopping and stopped for lunch at Five Guys. Yummy!
Hubs tipped a few back with me at the reunion. This man is truly my hero and best friend.
Shelly and I have been friends since were we very young. She loves vintage machines almost as much as I do.
I did some knitting on the return trip from Indiana. Just one more sleeve to go before I cut the steek stitches!
I finally found the other knitting patterns I bought long ago and now have the skills to try. They are both White Lies Designs and I may be in trouble. There are a bunch of gorgeous designs I may need to own! The two I have are Filigree Lace and Heirloom Lace Jacket.
Since Baby can’t have regular treats, I did some research on substitutes for her. I found this suggested recipe in the comment section of the product page.
The treats I made use both dry and soft food. Baby eats low fat ID only. I ground 2 cups of dry food in the food processor until it was mostly powder. I took a few tablespoons out to “flour” the board I will be using to roll out the dough.
Next add one can of soft food and blend until mixed well. It will be soft and clumpy.
Scoop it out and roll it to about a half an inch thick. I use a smooth glass as a rolling pin and work with a hand full at a time. I have a set of dog bone cookie cutters but you could cut the pieces with a butter knife to the size you want.
If your dogs are around like mine, they will be at your feet and begging to lick the spoon!
Place the bones on a cookie sheet using a liner or parchment paper. You don’t want the bottom to stick or burn. Place the sheet in the oven at 300 degrees for half an hour (don’t preheat). Remove and cool before storing in the fridge. Use the treats within 2 weeks and don’t count them as part of your pets nutrition. Heat changes the protein properties.
The leftover raw food can be shaped into balls and used as pill pockets! What I should’ve done and didn’t, use something like a straw to create a hole for the pill to go into because once refrigerated, the treats become solid and will crumble easily if you try to stick a pill inside.
