Christmas Countdown Day 16- A Holiday Grain Bake For Your Bird

christmas countdown day 16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most of my cooking is for the critters. Lucky for them especially since cooking isn’t something I enjoy. The easier the better so I when I read how to make a grain bake on Parrot Nation I knew it was something I had to try. After all how much easier can it get than just putting everything into 1 container, adding water and baking?

The great thing about the grain bake (other than you can eat it yourself) is you can use all types of ingredients. I decided to go with a bit of a holiday theme for my inaugural bake.

Ingredients I used included:

  • Cooked mixed beans
  • cranberries
  • a yam
  • millet
  • wheat
  • oats
  • barley
  • kamut(not shown)
  • quinoa
  • chopped walnuts
  • sliced pecans
  • cinnamon(not shown)

 

I’ll let you read the cooking instructions and explanation of the bake on Parrot Nation.

The birds were happy to try something new and get into the holiday spirit.

Christmas Countdown Day 9- Guinea Pig and Rabbit Treats

christmas countdown day 9

 

It’s not only the people and the pups who like homemade Christmas treats. Guinea pigs and bunnies love them too. And my crew loved these Timothy pellet/carrot treats I made for them

Homemade Treats

Ingredients-

Pellets

Jar of carrot baby food (I used organic Earth’s Best baby food.)

Grated carrots

Water

1. Mix the baby food into the bowl of pellets followed by the grated carrots.

2. Add enough water to just cover the pellets. Let sit until the water is absorbed.

3. Once the water is absorbed, mix it all together so the pellets break down.

4. Prepared a cookie sheet by covering it with parchment paper.

5. You can make the treats in 2 forms.

  • For the first drop the mix using a teaspoon onto the tray and smash it down with the bottom of a glass.
  • For the second spread the mix onto the cookie sheet and score with a knife (this was a much faster method)

6. Place the tray into the oven and baked for about 2 hours at 250 degrees.

7. Once dry remove from the oven and remove treats from the tray(break up the treats for the the mix that was spread on the tray).

A quick taste test done by the guinea pigs and Ms. Glee the bunny got a paws up from all.

For some reason, the holidays put me into a baking mood. And all the holiday recipes that start showing up draw me in. Especially the dog treat recipes.nepapets.com

Is it bad that most of the cooking I do is for the pets? Even at Christmas they are more likely to get homemade cookies than Santa Claus is (Sorry Santa!)

All the recipes look so good, but I picked some that looked just right for your holiday baking to share.

Cranberry Dog Treats from DogTipper

Gingerbread Dog Biscuits from Dukes & Duchesses

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats from Heather Homemade

Paw Print Dog Treats from Martha Stewart

Gluten Free Dog Treats from Pocket Change Gourmet

PB & Ginger Snap from Pretty Fluffy

Anything from Kol’s Notes (There is a whole category for Christmas!)
