Pearl is always thinking about the fill level of her tummy.
When the contents drop below an invisible line inside the tank, a sensor light starts flashing in her brain and she
pesters the crap out of me alerts me to the need to refill the reservoir A.S.A.P.
This morning, I was a little low on fruit, it being the end of the week & what not.
So, they got a greater serving than normal of yogurt mixed with honey & oats, and half an apple. That did not hold Pearl till dinner (surprise, surprise), and just before half-time in the Auburn-Mississippi State game, she started her “I’m hungry” song & dance.
What to do? Do I give a little treat and have her back in my face in 20 minutes? Do I go ahead and serve dinner at 4pm? I mean, 4:00 is really the no-man’s land of mealtimes.
So I put on my thinking cap and dug around in my pantry.
Game Day Gruel:
- 1 T plain yogurt
- 3 T fresh ground almond butter
- 1 t organic black strap molasses
- sprinkle of organic dehydrated coconut flakes
They each got 2 tablespoons of the dense, brown mixture in their food bowls, and calmed down till that game was over.
Give it a try! It’s #YUM
pugs & kisses,
