I made more sweet potato Dog treats. Washed all the bedding, reorganized the closet, and sorted coupons. 'I took my dog on 2 long walks. The highlight of the day was my son and I went to eat at the Olive Garden. I used a gift card that I had received so that was still frugal. I have poison ivy on my face and neck which is driving me crazy.

Lisaco---Please let me know how you make the sweet potato dog treats. With all the hubub about the chicken jerky treats, I am looking for thrifty ways to make safe treats for my dog.

Here's what I do:

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible. Cutting the side of the potato first allows you to then turn the potato onto this flat surface that you have just created. Having a stable area to rest the potato will make it easier to cut the potato into slices. I cut them thin.Don't discard that first piece, it comes out just as yummy as the rest!
  4. Cut the rest of the potato into 1/3" slices, no smaller than 1/4".
  5. Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, turning half way through.
  7. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Storing - Although these treats are dried, you will want to keep them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


If you want a drier, chewier way (think vegetarian raw hide) - put your oven at 250 degrees and bake for 2-3 hours. Josie likes them softer rather than drier.



Josie is small (13 lbs) so I do hers in 50 cent coin size pieces. It is her favorite treat. .


I also recently bought a dehydrator that I can use. However, when they are dehydrated, they come out in her stool undigested. Sorry for the gross word picture.


I also usually put a few baked potatoes in the oven for my son and I at the same time since the oven is on anyway.

I also make her homemade frosty paws.
If you have a larger dog, you may want to add more yogurt if you get it on
sale .

AWESOME--THANK YOU! what a great way to make treats for pups!

Here's a link to that book I mentioned, Born Again Dirt. It has links to buying his book, and i think it's the author's blog?

I understand. When we move to the new place and get furry pets again, i am seriously looking at making food for them vs buying. I meed to figure out what we need and do a cost breakdown still. But after reading about the stuff in pet foods...ewww. and sweet potatoes are a cheap buy and even cheaper if we grow them ourselves! So that will make it more feasible....

I just posted a sweepstakes over in the one time sweepstakes forum. But I wanted to make sure all of you frugal ladies with farms saw this. It's from the grit magazine. Prizes are equipment, feed, a cow etc....the prize package is worth more than $11,000.

Thanks lisaco. With all the hullaballoo over pets dying from treats, I only want to give the poopers something that I know will be safe. They will love the frosty paws treats. They love those things!

Frugal thing of the day...finally bought a crockpot. Also wrote down a meal plan for till June 10th. Hopefully this works! Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!!

We should be dreaming. We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we're too sophisticated as adults, as a nation. We stopped dreaming. We should always have dreams.
