Cooking for Charlie

I have several more recipes for homemade dog food.

  1. boiled sweet potato with dog food.

My dog Charlie actually doesn’t like his dog food very much. My husband and I tried several different types of dog food: chicken flavor, lamb flavor, salmon flavor. All end the same, he might like it at the first, then he loses interest. When I put dog food in his bowl, he just watches everything and sits still. If I ask him to come over, he will come and sniff. Then he just walks away. So I try to add flavor with boiled sweet potato or  pumpkin. He loves it and finishes them all.

Bad thing is he may poo poo a lot.

2, Lamb macaroni

I put lamb bone in a big pot. Add in enough water. Bring to boil with high heat. Skim soup and remove the dirt and fat. Slow cook for 40 mins. There is also some lamb meat on the bone. So I use the soup to cook macaroni. He loves it.

3. Boiled egg with dog food.

Charlie loved boiled egg. I guess he loves all the food except dog food. 🙂

I don’t want to give him too much egg, so i usually boil 1 egg and eat half. Mash the rest half and mix with his dog food. And i only give very little egg white to Charlie.

4, Bland rice and chicken.

Charlie got diarrhea several days ago. I stop giving him dog food and his treat. Instead I cooked rice and chicken for him. It’s super simple. I bough minced chicken. Put minced chicken with rice in rice cooker and cook them together. Or I used boiled chicken breast, Tear it into small pieces and mix with rice. Charlie soon recovers from diarrhea.

Carbonara Pasta

  1. Cut 5 or 6 strips bacon into small pieces.
  2. Heat a pan, add in 1 tsp oil. Sear the bacon. At the same time, cook pasta.
  3. Sear bacon with low heat. There will be much fat in the pan. Pour the excess, only keep a little.
  4. In a bowl, mix 2 eggs with 50g parmesan cheese and 20g mozzarella cheese.
  5. Add cooked pasta into the pan and mix with bacon. Also add in 1/3 cup pasta water.
  6. Keep low heat. Add egg cheese mixture into pan.
  7. Mix everything together. Season with black pepper and salt if needed.

1. Prepare Prawns first. Remove the intestines and wash clean.

2. Put all Prawns in a big bowl. Add in 1 egg white, a little salt and pepper and 2 tablespoon corn starch. Mix well.

3. Deep fry Prawns in oil till golden brown. Drain them.

4. Heat 1 tsp oil in a sauce pan. Add in 20g butter. When butter melts, pour in 2 egg yolks. Stir while pouring. Egg yolk will become shredded.

Carrot adds sweetness to the egg. Very nice.

Avocado Egg (Deviled Eggs)

I used 4 eggs and 1 small ripe avocado in this recipe. You can adjust it according to your preference, use more eggs, less avocado or less eggs and more avocado.

  1. Boil eggs till they are hard boiled.
  2. Cut each eggs into halves. Gently scoop out the egg yolk.
  3. Put egg yolk and avocado in a bowl, mash them with a fork. Ripe avocado will make it a lot easier. I just mash them coarsely, so there is still avocado chunks in it.
  4. Season with salt and black pepper.
  5. Squeeze in 1/2 lime juice, 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise.
  6. Mix well till fully combined.
  7. Scoop egg yolk & avocado mixture with a spoon and put into the egg white.
  8. You can sprinkle some more black pepper or smoke paprika  powder.

For tamago yaki:

Beat 2 eggs in a bowl. Add in 1 tsp milk and 1 pinch salt. Blend well.

Heat a pan (I used the normal round shape pan not the square type). Brush a little oil. Pour 1/3 egg in. Gently stir with chopsticks. Push all the egg to one side of the pan. Pour in a little more egg. When it starts to solidify, Roll the egg from the previous egg side to the other. Repeat the step till finish all the egg.

Cool down and cut into slices.

To make my husband eat more vegetables, I added in some broccoli, cauliflower and cherry tomatoes.

He loved it and finished them all.

Tomato & Egg Soup

I’ve been having this soup since I was very little. There is a little difference between the soup in the southern and northern China.

So fast soup like this tomato & egg tofu is popular in north.
