Comfort Food . . . K9 StylePosted: July 15, 2014
We’re all familiar with human comfort foods . . . things like macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, chocolate cake. Would it surprise you to know that canines have comfort foods too? It’s time for you to get to know my favorite summertime comfort food.
Where I live, summers are hot . . . I mean really hot . . . and humid . . . I mean really humid. So naturally my favorite summertime comfort treat has to be frozen.
And naturally it has to include three of my all-time favorite ingredients: yogurt, peanut butter, and bananas. Yum!
My human mommy mashed a banana in a bowl. Then she added a heaping teaspoon of smooth peanut butter to the mashed banana. Luckily for me, that was the last of the peanut butter, so I got to lick the jar. Bonus!
Finally, she added two tablespoons of plain yogurt to the bowl and mixed everything with a spoon. I got to lick the spoon. Pretty clean, don’t you think? Mommy could have just put it back into the drawer, but for some reason she decided that it needed to go into the dishwasher. Whatever.
While I watched, Mommy spooned the yogurt-peanut butter-banana mixture into molds and then popped the molds into the freezer.
Meanwhile, I got to lick the bowl. Yes! As with the spoon I licked, I thought the bowl was clean enough to go right back into the cabinet. Mommy didn’t quite agree, so the bowl joined the spoon in the dishwasher.
And after just a few hours in the freezer, my treats were ready to eat. Now that’s a tasty treat that can comfort a canine even on the hottest of summer days!
Footnote: If you don’t have fancy little molds, don’t worry. You can put small spoonfuls of the yogurt-peanut butter-banana mixture on a cookie sheet to freeze. Trust a dog on this: We don’t care how it looks; we just want a taste. BONE appetit!
