In the long run that’s a good thing since I am not prone to losing a loved one who I have known for 12 years due to a food recall where dogs were dying due to kidney failure. I had that happen once already with Lettie The McBorder SuperDog (TM). I won’t have that again.
On the other hand, it’s a lot of work and Rack can’t have a list of foods such as Chicken and Grain. Any of them. Not even the esoteric ones like quail. I can feed him beef and do, I have given him pork to uneven results.
That leads to my keeping a recipe that I have made public here on my blog. I have the cooking down to a science which is good because the recipe only makes three days worth. Twice a week I make more.
But that also means my freezer is chock full of meta ingredients to go into this. The Beans I got smart with a couple years ago and stopped getting them in the cans. I buy bulk kidney beans and cook them in the pressure cooker – instant pot to the normies.
Recipe – 1 hour under pressure, 15 minutes rest, manual release. 3 parts water, 1 part beans, a half teaspoon of baking soda.
But you are told rinse your beans and pick off any of the “floaters”. Ok, I do. I also am a veteran gardener. I toss the extras in the garden and don’t think twice of it.
I have never gotten anything out of that until this time. A Week Ago. Now I have these things coming out of the pots I keep on the front porch. Those are my nursery pots for Basil right now, some Crotons for display later, and these beans.
I just did not expect them to grow so fast. Or really at all.
I was told that now I have proven that I have the gardening skills of a Second Grader. The story was that typically you get a little bean to plant and watch it grow. I didn’t, I got a sunflower and to this day I truly enjoy them. Just never beans.
I am amused by the little beanstalks and how quickly they sprouted for some beans that were floaters.
So Rack and Jack will have their beans. They’re also good in a salad, trust me.
