New Food Day and Mom Update

Hi everybody! Thank you all again for the nice comments and support for my Mom. They worked because she feels much better this time then last!
For anyone new that doesn't know, I eat homemade food due to severe corn and soy allergies. I've been on homemade for about 8 months, and am doing absolutely fantastic! You can read about why I'm fed homemade and it's many benefits here.
Tuesday Mom mixed up a big batch of food (2-3 weeks worth among 4 Dachshunds) and here's what's in it:
A lot of meat. Mom forgot to measure, but it's chicken, beef and pork.
3 green bell peppers, chopped
6 carrots, plus a hand full of baby carrots, cut small
4 cups pineapple
1 stalk of celery, chopped
7 cups of raw oats
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons of ground organic flaxseed
4 tablespoons of parsley
Put into freezer bags and freeze! All done!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
The Not at all spoiled Dachshund Nola
Green pepper is yummy!

2-3 weeks worth of food for 4 young, hyper Dachshuns


  1. That sounds pretty good, guess it wouldn't last me too long though. Does your mum use cooked or raw meat? Deccy x

  2. Yummmy! This food looks & sounds better than what my people eat :)

  3. I cook for Whisky too. I make a chicken stew with some carrots, zucchini, celery, pumpkin and sweet potato. Then I add a tablespoon of raw oats. But after about a week of this, she started to cough so hubby suggested cutting out the raw oats and the coughing stopped. I will try again and see if it happens again. She used to eat cooked oats and had no problems with that. Guess every furkid is different. :)
    Did your Mom get her upper wisdom teeth removed this time? I have to get mine out (upper) but am trying to avoid it for as long as possible. I had my lower ones removed years ago. Ouch.

  4. Glad your mom is feeling better!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. That looks yummy! Expect me around dinnertime!

  6. So glad to hear your Momma is feeling better! :)

  7. Wonderful news bouts your mom!
    Nows if my mum wasn't so darn lazy maybes I could gets some foodables likes dat.

    You is one LUCKY girlie!


  8. Your poor mom...I hope she is feeling really better today!

    I'm so impressed with her food prep. My daughter was telling me about the raw feeding for poochies and she was curious how Tucker and Stewie would be on that.

    Still feeding kibble...if I'm not to are the poops on the diet and how about the teeth...they say that poochies teeth improve on home / raw foods than on kibble.

  9. Keep tendin to your mom...

    I love that meal. Ernie and I BOTH LOVE Green Peppers... Mom always puts them into Our foods too.

  10. Great news on Mom - hope she has a great weekend.

    That food looks so good - wish we could get Mom to do that for us.

    Hope you get to try the chicken jerky, so easy peasy and sooooo good. Plus you know exactly what is in it.

  11. Way to go Mom....for feeling better and for making such a wonderful feast. All of that looks soo delish. We will have to seek in this recipe for mamas to make. We always love it when mamas make a salad cuz they share all their veggies. Have a great weekend my friend. ~Weinerful Gang~

  12. So glad to hear your mum is feeling better!
    That looks scrumptious, better than the cardboard pellets we get, although at least we get chicken to make them taste nicer!

  13. Glad your momma is feeling better...hope her recovery continues smoothly! And wow, you dinner looks tastier than my kibble. (Too bad my mom is scared of the raw meat stuff...she was a vegetarian for too many years!) Thankfully, though, she does buy me top notch kibble. :)

  14. Dachshund Nola....
    Wow-ser!! That is some meal you've got there!! ;)
    I have question, though.... I read somewhere that celery is not good for dogs because it is too stringy? But I am wondering.... Is that true? I have a crunchy biscuit recipe which I'll eventually bake for my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE Beagle/German Shepherd cross, Rose. It calls for "diced celery". Any advice would be appreciated!! ;op
    Now I am off to type for my blog!! ;-D
    Happy Friday the 13th to you!! ;-O

  15. That sounds like some great food! Allergies can be a real drag :(

  16. Looks good, but SHE says SHE's lucky because we can all eat kibble and stuff...just without corn.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  17. I am so glad Mommy is better. That food looks really good. Mommy gave me green pepper once but I had kind of bad tummy back firing reaction, if you know what I mean, so we avoid that now. The rest looks so good.

  18. It looks yummilicious even for a not so young dachshund!
    Sure you all enjoy it a lot!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. any leftovers? We love your header. Keep forgeting to tell you
    Benny & Lily

  20. Lady and I are so glad your mom is feeling better. What do you do when you get it out of the freezer? Do you eat it cold? DO you cook your meat? We can't imagine letting em eat raw meat here. You should see the butchers! No refrigeration, flies, dirty chopping blocks... Meat doesn't come all nice and clean on a styro tray with celo wrap. Soemtimes it's alive, or it is hanging out in the open on hooks.(Lady says she's glad she is a vegetarian).

  21. Hey Nola!
    Wow, I'm so glad your Mommy is feeling better! It looks like she is a wonderful cook! I'm drooling all over my Mr Dell because your menu looks totally yummy! You're not deserve every bit of this! BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  22. That looks like only enough food for a meal or two at my house! I guess that's what I get with bigger dogs!

  23. This looks great! How long did it take to make this? How much do y'all eat each day? I have one cup of food each day and this looks like it would last me a while as well!

  24. mmmmh this looks delicious! my mom makes my food too. i love home made food! :)


  25. Wow Nola,

    That looks super yummy - can I pop over for Dinner? Tee Hee

    Glad to hear your Mum is feeling better :)

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
