I'm looking into making our pets' food rather than buying it. The good (foreign) brands are getting more and more expensive. We have one dog and five cats, and am most interested in making food for my dog. Pepper is a small to medium sized dog, no idea what kind, a mix. He's in very good health, and has nice, shiny fur. He gets a good amount of exercise. He's about two years old. I'd like some advice on what I can give him to eat. He likes most foods. I'd like to do some food I could cook up or prepare once a week, and maybe freeze. Needs to be something easy! At the moment, Pepper eats twice a day (one little packet each time) and has dry food. He seems to like the cats' dried food more than his! Also open to preparing for the cats. Any recipes, or guidelines you can give would be appreciated.
