Dang, this is the second ground turkey recall from the same company within a month. Why can’t they get their act together? It seems like they will go broke this way. We buy a lot of ground turkey, since it is the base my wife uses when she prepares food for our dogs. Yes, she cooks for our dogs and it is so good that I try to get some of it, too. I guess the dogs are cuter than I am, because they always seem to win out.
Our oldest dog has colitis, and is very sensitive to diet. We were thinking that we were taking extra special care of our dogs by knowing what we were feeding them, preparing it ourselves, and adding all the ingredients to keep them healthy. The meat is always cooked, so it should be OK.
Now, I have been asked why we chose poultry as the meat base and not red meat. Well, one of the reasons was what I learned from an animal handler. I was watching hem throw chicken to all his big cats. I ask him why he was giving them chicken instead of a side of beef. He told me that animals in captivity do not get the activity needed to digest red meat very well. Also, in the wild, the big cats eat their preys’ stomach contents, etc. and get a variety with their meat. I figured if it were good enough for a professional it was good enough for me.
Red meat, now and then, is a treat and does not hurt anything. I eat very little red meat. I don’t get much exercise, either. (grin) OK, I had a good supper last night. I ate a package of Louisiana Cajun Boudin sausage. Wow, I like that stuff. Every time I do that, I tell myself that next time I will make two meal out of it like I should have done. But, every time I just eat the whole package. It is just sooooo goooood.
Sixbears had a question about Boudin and I found a picture on the internet that is exactly what I ate, except I ate two of them:
You all have a good week now, you hear?
