Let me start by saying, as I made crystal clear in a previous post but I believe is worth repeating, that I hate to cook with a passion that no words could ever explain nor describe, but I do cook for my dog, Alex. I am in awe anytime I see my girlfriend cook. Once in a while I watch her cook, and she is so in a zone and many times oblivious to what’s around her. It’s beautiful to watch her cook.
Anyway, Alex got more and more picky as she got older so now I have to cook for her. She does eat her kibble, but she seems to enjoy having a little variety in her meals. What she enjoys a lot, specially during the winter, is chicken soup so I cook it often for her.
This is what I put in the chicken soup for my daughter
- 2 to 4 chicken legs
- Broccoli. Not a lot because it makes her fart
- Celery. Cut it small
- Carrots. Make sure they are cooked so your dog can digest it easier
- The broccoli, celery and carrots can be substituted for peas, cauliflower, or potatoes
- One chicken bouillon
- A pinch of salt
I used to add rice or noodles, but I stopped doing it because they absorbed too much of the liquid and Alex was not too happy about it. She likes it better when I add a bit of cooked rice to the portion that I am serving to her at that particular time.
Most of the time, not always, Alex loves my cooking and it makes me feel so happy that she enjoys my cooking. My one and only fan:-)
