cooking day foul up ... blech!

okay, so about every 5-6 weeks I make and puree enough veggies to last for 5-6 weeks and then just add a container to her meat when I cook it each week.
WELL, today was THE day (ugggg) and I HAD to do it, of course I am NO where near recovered from Christmas, the kids are home (and arguing) and I am dealing with steaming/pureeing and packaging these stupid veggies. WELLLLLLL, apparently I got a little distracted and ran OUT of water in the bottom of the pot that I was steaming the Kale in ... blech... have you ever smelled the STENCH of overcooked/burnt kale??
So, now I have ALL the windows open, the vent on, fans on and the kids are freezing to death... LOL man, the things I do for this DOG!!

Oh, Tammy - yuck!

Well, I am going to take heed from you and Lucile - I don't think it is a day to attempt anything - so I am just going to do nothing today!!

Tammy I am so sorry. Hopefully, the smell has dissipated by now. Yesterday was my cooking day. Oh, yes the things we do for these DOGS.

How cold is it where you live now? If you say anything above 50 degrees I will laugh at you!! It is 28 here today, so if I had to open the windows we really would be freezing.

It happened to me today with the sweet potatoes. They didn't burn but the smell of the bottom of the pot was sooo strong. I hate when the I run out of water in the pot. We love our dogs....

Tammy,

That had to smell bad, like REALLY bad! Do you think people surf through this site and think the whole lot of us are a bit "off" with our dog escapades?

I steam them, cut in 1" pieces and it is really easy to do. (15- 20 minutes) The skin goes out very easily. Sabine told me to steam or bake... I tried steaming first and I like it . I don't think it matters, though.
