I'm getting very excited for the Healthy Living Summit! I seriously can't believe that it's only 2 weeks away! I received an email from Caitlin last week, stating that in conjunction with the Healthy Living Summit, she would be holding a Team in Training bake sale in order to raise money for the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Since I am crazy in love with baking (and un-baking), I responded right away that I would participate.
I decided to make my famous (around these parts anyway) nutty granola squares, and raw coconut almond macaroons. Two of my favorite things in the whole world.
Then I had a brilliant idea. At least 50% of the attendees will most probably have dogs. I just can't forget about the dogs, ya know? (***cue Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercial***)
So, this is a little insight into what I'm working on (iPhone camera resolution style). These will be strictly swag. I'm just out to share the woofie love!
I will put my homemade dog biscuits in a cellophane bag attached to this cute little tag, of course.
Have you ever made homemade dog treats?
I like to make my own when possible. Since my puppies are my only "kids", I'm always concerned about what I'm putting in their little bodies. I feed my dogs all natural dog food with no animal by-products, and I can actually pronounce all of the ingredients. I think it's only fair that I feed them as well as I would feed myself.
There are some good wholesome dog treats out there, but they are very expensive. I'm cheap. I'd rather make my own. That way, they're cheap, and I know that they're healthy and fresh.
So, this project is fun and cute and all...but do you think that anyone is going to notice that I forgot to add "ginger" to the ingredients list of the "almond GINGER woofies". Uh. Yeah. Minor detail.
