Now that Thanksgiving is over and you’ve had your fill of pumpkin flavored foods, it’s time to get rid of that excess canned pumpkin you have. Why not turn them into treats for your furry friends and even maybe your non-furry friends? Here’s a recipe for some Dog Treats:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.
Friendsgiving parties are coming up the next two weekends and nobody wants to come empty handed. Here’s a simple recipe that will feed most of your friends and not drain the bank too much:
Feta Cheese Foldovers
Total time: <40 mins.
8 oz. crumbled feta cheese
3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
1 egg, beaten
1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a small bowl, blend feta cheese, green onions, and egg. Cut pastry into 12 (3 inch) squares. Place a mounded tablespoon of feta mixture in the center of each square. Moisten edges with water, and fold pastry over filling to form a triangle. Press edges together firmly with a fork to seal. Lightly brush pastries with the egg yolk mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Recently, I was introduced to a type of food that I should have expected to be in existence, but never looked for. That food was the 90 seconds rice. It’s a simple concept and all you need is a microwave. To cook, every brand I saw had a tear away top that you rip a little on both sides for ventilation. You toss in the microwave for just 90 seconds and let it cool before eating.
Many large chain retail stores such as Walmart, Target, Kroger, etc. have their own cheap brand selling between $1.50 and $2.00. Each of the large chain products have a very select type of flavored rice. These are probably the best deal for most busy and/or money-saving people.
For those willing to pay a little more, roughly only 25-50 cents more, Uncle Ben’s provided many more types of 90 seconds rice. Their website has 23 different types of rice to choose from. As I’ve been taste testing, my favorites are the Roasted Chicken and Cheddar Broccoli. They have a type for all different taste styles.
This type of product is so simple to make and is filling for quite cheap. It’s a little more expensive than uncooked rice, but your time is valuable too. It can be added to any food dish as well. Next time you are looking for a snack or just something to add to your lunch/dinner plate, try out these 90 second rice pouches.
