I've searched the threads, but it's been so long ago that I can't find the one where you gave the recipe for the satin balls. While I have it and use it (oh, thank you from Angel), it seems that a few others might benefit from your listing it again. I would, but since it's yours, think you deserve the credit for it. Just a thought I forgot to add a "funny". I made meatloaf (of the human variety) last night. All 3 dogs watched my every move, followed me carefully about the kitchen and gave me a "What the heck are you DOING"? look when I covered the top with tomato paste and then stuck it in the oven. This was NOT part of the routine, uh-uh, no way! The looks went from me, to the oven, then to one another...they were certain that mom had finally gone around the bend.
She's on Allie, guess she hasn't seen the post yet. I hope you have a good sized freezer though 'cause Allie isn't going to eat a whole lot of it at any one time. If she did, you'd have the 1st 50 pound Chi in history~grin ps did you see my post about Arwen's vet visit today?
I'm not GinaH but here is the recipe: *SATIN BALLS* ______________________________________________ 10 pounds hamburger meat [the cheapest kind] 1 lg. box of Total cereal [or comparable natural brand] 1 lg. box oatmeal 1 jar of wheat germ 1 1/4 cup veg oil 1 1/4 cup of unsulfured molasses 10 raw eggs 10 envelopes of unflavored gelatin pinch of salt Mix all ingredients together, much like you would a meatloaf. Divide into 10 quart freezer bags and freeze. Thaw as needed.
Thanks, I had the recipe but am glad you posted it. I was trying to be polite since GinaH was kind enough to share it with us, but guess she didn't see the thread or didn't want to repost it for some reason. I'm sure a few others experiencing trouble with picky eaters and others wanting a special, healthy treat will appreciate having it posted again.
No, no, no I wasn't criticizing you for posting, honestly. I wanted to give her the chance to do it, but as I said, she didn't for whatever reason, so I'm GLAD you posted it! Really. I even gave it to Allie in IM earlier, but was going to put it up if GIna hadn't by later this evening. What's important was to get it out there again for the folks who missed it the 1st time around.

Well not to critizie (sp) either, but if you would have read all the post for "Need Suggestions" then you have seen the receipt. GinaH did post it. It was the last post on page one. So know you have two places to get it.
This one looks like a good one to try though. Most of the receipts I find are for like one dog. So even if I were to make it I would have to make it every night, because there would be no left over to put in the freezer. This one looks like it will take a few days even for my dogs to eat. How long does your last Pyrmom?
Langniappe, actually, I missed it on the other thread, but feel it is worth getting out there again for any who would like to see it. Perhaps having a thread with the title of recipe in it will give folks another option to find it.
Langniappe, just a suggestion for the recipes that don't make enough for more than one night...you could always just multipy everything in the recipe to make however much you want. For example, if the recipe is for one serving, and you want 10, just multiply all the ingredients by 10, and you will have 10 servings! Similarly, if the satin balls recipe is too much for a small dog (such as allie!), you can divide the recipe..like if you want half as much as the recipe suggests, you can just divide everything by 2.
poor you!! i hope you recover quickly. i messed up my shoulder so i know what you are going through. is it your dominant hand? either way, it is quite an adjustment, doing day to day things single handedly- I feel for you. feel better!
Oh, GinaH so sorry about the hand! Been there, done that and it is no fun at ALL. I'm glad it was posted too. Thought it well worth putting up again as I said earlier. I also agree that "food" would make for a good topic, one for Dogs, one for Cats, maybe even for "exotics"! On the increasing recipes, Allie and others with smaller breeds can always reduce them them for the little guys.
