I'm So Happy About My New Friends!



September 3, 2011


I realized I very shamefully neglected some recipes for the four-legged children and granddogs we have. These are from a website with free dog treat recipes of different varieties and ingredients. My daughter and SIL like these because they know exactly what's in them and that they have no extra chemicals or fillers. I've got to find the website URL to give credits, these are stored in my WORD Documents folder and I don't remember where I found them, but I will. I also tried these in mini muffin pans
and frosted with a LITTLE cream cheese:


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (SMOOTH ONLY, please)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oatmeal

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and lightly greasing a baking or pizza pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and oatmeal. Once that’s mixed, add the peanut butter and milk. Stir it together until a dough forms.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead it and then roll it out until it’s about a 1/4″ thick. Break out your cute bone-shaped cookie cutters or a pizza cutter and cut the dough into the desired size and shape.
Bake those on the lightly greased baking pan and cook for about 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown.
Once cool, let your favorite pup enjoy before storing them in an airtight jar (or resealable freezer bag)


1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 1/4 C grated cheddar
1 stick softened butter or margarine
1 clove of garlic crushed
1/4 milk (or as needed)
Pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 375.
Mix all of the ingredients, except for the milk, in a mixing bowl. To the mixture, add just enough of the milk to form a ball.
Put the “cheese ball” into the fridge to chill for about a half an hour.
Roll it out onto a lightly floured surface. Cut it into cute dog bone or hydrant shapes. Bake them for about 15 minutes or until firm.

Makes 24-36 biscuits (depending on your cookie cutter size)
Bye for now, Primmiessmiley

Sample Meal Schedule For Type 2 Diabetics

Recently at a routine check-up, my doctor wanted to test me for Type II Diabetes. Ugh, I knew this was coming. My weight has increased by almost 40 pounds since 2000.
When she received the results, she told me I might as well consider that I have it, since whatever measure they use for the baseline, mine was only .1 away, or something like that. I tend not to pay attention to things I don't want to hear about my health, which is why my sweetheart ALWAYS takes me everywhere. He says one of us should know what's going on with me. I subscribe to a newsletter and there are always tips on Type II in it.
When Mr. Glen Oaks saw this he said that this is basically a good format for anyone wishing to lose or maintain a healthy weight, veggies,fruits,fiber and protein. He used to be really into working out and eating right (we're both slipping). But like anything, the key is moderation. On a nine inch dinner plate, 1/2 should be full of vegetables, 1/4 protein (3-4oz. meat) and rice, potato, etc., whole grain dinner roll.
Believe me, this takes a lot of willpower. Especially someone like me who will break open a bag of Pecan Sandies and eat at least 1/2 of the package. And some foods take a while
to try and develop a taste for, or in certain combinations. I by no means am offering medical advise or dietary advice, I thought some people might benefit from this and the web source:

A Day of Eating For Optimal Blood-Sugar Control

Egg-white omelet with spinach and mushrooms
One orange
Coffee with skim milk

Turkey sandwich on two slices whole-grain bread with lettuce, tomato, and mustard (or top with hummus or light mayo)
Crunchy red-pepper sticks

Nonfat yogurt
One plum

Homemade shrimp-and-broccoli stir-fry
Baked sweet potato
Zero-calorie seltzer

After Dinner:
Handful of almonds or pistachio nuts
Cup of decaf tea (I like chamomile)

Old Farmhouse Cooking: White Bread

With the days and most nights getting cooler, here's a beautiful bread recipe to try now or later on for those of you still having hot, humid weather. It's a great White Bread recipe from a blog I follow, Old Farmhouse Cooking. They are part of a team, the Old Farmhouse Gathering. Here is the direct link to the recipe and their photo of the bread:
Old Farmhouse Cooking: White Bread:
They said it's the best bread recipe they've ever tried. (They are right!) Mr. Glen Oaks is an avid baker when he's not out in the workshop, and his bread looks just like a picture when it comes out of the oven. As a matter of fact, all of his pastries and cakes look like pictures, I don't know how he does it. Mom and I burn things. Miserably. Ruined. You get the idea...
Off to start dinner (that I can do).
