After my week of vacation the kids came back today to discover we adopted a dog while they were gone.
I thought one way they could enjoy getting to know each other was to have the kids help make dog biscuits for her. So after circle time this morning we got busy and and made some yummy (if you're a dog) treats for Roni.
After they cut out the biscuits in various shapes I put them in the oven to bake. They smelled good while baking, a little like peanut butter cookies.
Normally Roni is out of her kennel playing during the day, but since it was rainy today I wanted her in where she could get to her doghouse. After the bisuits were done baking and cooled the kids went out between rain showers and let her taste her treats. They disappeared very quickly so we know she liked them
Here is our Dog Biscuit Recipe
1 banana, mashed
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
3 cups whole wheat flour
Mix first four ingredients together. Then add flour and mix well. Roll out to desired thickness and cut into squares or cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 - 40 minutes.
They apparently looked good enough to eat because when Doug came home from work this afternoon he nearly ate one before I said "Oh, no those are dog biscuits." His reply was a rather disgruntled "Lucky mutt!"
I guess now I'm going to have to bake him some cookies.
