Mr. Marley's Mush
(Tim Ufkes)
"I get all of the following from Costco"...
6 c. brown rice
12 eggs
4 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. olive oil
large bag of carrots (=8 c. processed)
three whole chickens
large bag of spinach
20 whole black peppercorns
large bag of broccoli
6 whole bay leaves
3 TB. sea salt
You will need a 24 quart or larger kettle with lid, a 24" (twenty-four inch) wooden ladle, a food processor, and a two-cup measuring cup.
How to Cook:
Clean three chickens: remove necks, gizzards, heart, & liver, and trim wing ends. Place chickens in the pot and fill 3/4 full with cold water. Add sea salt, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce to a simmer for 2 hours, or until chicken falls from the bone. Strain the stock and remove bones, bay leaves, and peppercorns. Return chicken meat, stock, and garlic to pot. On medium heat, add brown rice, rolled oats, olive oil, carrots (grated or run through a food processor), and eggs. Stir all ingredients, breaking up egg yolks. Bring to a light boil stirring occasionally. Cook for about 2 hours or until rice is soft and mushy. Add entire bags of spinach and broccoli and continue cooking 1/2 hour more. Put a week's worth of food in a container and refrigerate. Bag the rest in one-gallon freezer bags and freeze.

To Serve:
"I feed 1 c. of kibble (I use three-dog-bakery all natural chicken kibble), 1/2 T. of sea meal, 1 heaping T. of cottage cheese, 2 T. of Vita Shine fish oil, 1-1/2 c. of Mr. Marley's Mush, and finally 2 chicken wing ends or turkey necks or hearts, gizzards, or livers. This is Marley's and Haille's dinner meal. Since this recipe is Irish Water Spaniel tested, I am certain your Irishers will love it. Bon Appetit!"

Chipper's Favorite Cupcakes
(A*starz: Modern Natural Rearing)
2 lb. meat (chicken, turkey or beef)
3 c. oatmeal
2 c. brown rice
4 eggs
1 c. sunflower oil
1 c. lentils
2 c. cornmeal
2 c. veggies (kale, carrots, parsley)
1/2 c. water, or sufficient to mix
Cook rice and lentils together. In a food processor, mulch up vegetables, eggs, meat. Mix all ingredients together. Spoon into lightly oiled oversized cupcake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Freeze what you are not going to use in 5 days. This makes about 4 dozen larger-size cupcakes.
Highly digestible, leaving very little stool volume and no loose stools. Originally from Peter and Holly Colcord, adapted and posted by Donna Stekli. (Bonnie Ott uses a large glass baking dish; mixes rest except liver and oatmeal while rice is cooking; then purees liver, cooks oatmeal in microwave, dumps in rice, bakes, cools, cut into squares, freeze a weeks worth per freezer bag. Joanie Fraser uses meatloaf pans: double the recipe to make about 6-7 pans full, 5"w x 9"l x 3" h; keep two out (for 4 Kees) and freeze the rest; sometimes add tuna instead of all meat; spinach instead of kale; topped with spaghetti sauce; add small amount of liver; use 7grain cereal instead of just oatmeal; cornmeal doesn't seem to cause problems but prefers to use white corn meal and "new process" since lower in fat and less spoilage; bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, ground cereals instead of or with cornmeal; liquids: soup, veggie juice, apple juice; add chopped apple; NO ONION; mixture should have the basics and feel like meatloaf, baked at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, checking every 5-10 minutes after first 30; oil or spray pans prior to filling.)
[DragonBear edit: previously included "3 garlic cloves"]
A*starz Dog Stew
(A*starz: Modern Natural Rearing)
3 lb. meat (chicken or turkey, cooked)
1 lb. raw organ meats (livers, kidneys, hearts)
2 c. peas
2 c. brown rice
1 c. lentils
3 c. raw veggies (kale, carrots, parsley, tomatoes, sweet potatoes)
Bake the non-raw meats along with any dry vegetables such as split peas. Debone the meat and shred pieces by hand. In a food processor, mulch up raw meats. Cook the brown rice and lentils together. In a food processor, mulch up vegetables. Mix all together and spoon into containers for freezing. Take concentrated stew, add some water and heat in microwave until warm. Mix in with dry dog food and serve. Originally from Donna Stekli.
[DragonBear edit: previously included "4 garlic cloves"]
Scruffy's Dog Food

(Eastern Goldfields Kennel Club)
6 oz. broth
8 oz. meat scraps

Akita Style Lamb & Rice
(Eastern Goldfields Kennel Club)
1 lb. ground lamb (or beef)
1-1/2 c. brown rice
2 stalks broccoli
2 or 3 medium potatoes
3 medium carrots
1 sheet kombu (sea kelp, optional)
salt, pepper, water
Brown lamb in a fry pan. Boil water, put about 4-5 c. into a crock pot, so it is already hot while you are fixing the rest of the ingredients. Add cubed potatoes to the fry pan. Cut broccoli and add this to the crock. Put the rest of the works in the pot, add enough hot water to cover. Add salt and pepper to taste. Throw in 1/2 c. [?] brown rice and mix.
