    Thanks for sharing this recipe - I'm confused by a few of the ingredients though, does anyone know the UK equivalents?

    10 pounds hamburger meat [the cheapest kind] - I presume this is minced beef?
    1 lg. box of Total cereal? - I don't think we have this - is it wheat?

    1 jar of wheat germ - not too sure what form this is in, perhaps available from the health food shop?


    Thanks in advance - probably me being Stoopid

    No you aren't being stoopid <smile>. I just found Typhoo <giggle> and I really like it-- it is English tea and it is good.

    Yes, ground beef is minced beef-- don't get the low fat versions-- I get ground chuck or round that has 15-20% fat.
    Total cereal is a whole grain wheat flake breakfast cereal that has 100% of the recommended daily allowance of 12 vitamins and minerals-- it is made by General Mills in the US.
    Wheat germ is sold here in the breakfast aisle-- I believe you can find it in a health food store too.
    I have never had a dog turn these down. And yes occasionally I have a dog that does get a little too thin. Sandy

    Nicki a lot of UK stores sell wheat germ in a jar from the US, Kreschmers (sp?) right in with the cereals. For Total you could substitute any of the multigrain flakes or Special K. Lidl does a multigrain that I like for example! Any health food shop would likely sell wheat germ too.

    Thanks Sandy and Karlin - TedBear is not a great eater, and could do with at least another 1/2 kg on him, so would love to give this a try.

    What does the the egg shell do for them ????
    So I just made a batch of food for Dudley yesterday and would'nt you
    know it the one asking about the the egg yolks, I forgot to put them in.
    I pulverized the veggies as I read pulverized veggies are better for them
    they get more nutrients from them this way.
    Correct me if I am wrong.

    I am finding though he prefers the hamburger cooked which is fine
    as I mix it in with his kibble.
    Fussy Boy, or should I say more like controlling Boy.
    This boy has been playing mind games with me since I got him, when
    we give him a raw neck he will not eat his food again.
    So now he is not getting any necks until he smartens up.
    He needs the nutrients in his other food.
    That hubby of mine, is always sneakin him stuff.

    The egg shell is a source of calcium and minerals. Sandy

    OK now you're going to think I'm really thick, 'cos I had a bag of wheatgerm in the cupboard the whole time {having bought it thinking it was bran...}

    ***I'm not really going on holiday at the weekend, going in for a brain transplant***

    SO I now know where to buy the wheatgerm...but it comes in 400g bags...how does this relate to your jar sizes please?

    You crack me up you Sassy Lassie

    Yes training the husbands in more than one thing is a bit of a challenge. icon_yikes icon_yikes

    Now Nikki, that is thick come on eh. Is it any wonder why your havin
    a brain transplant.

    Wheatgerm is good for you to you know, put it in your bran and your bowels will be more than fine.

    I don't have a jar in the house, but I do believe it is about 200 or 300 gram jar. I am going to the store tonight so I'll have a look and let you know. Put it in your hubbies eggs, no joke I used to when I was mad at him. No Nikki I really did even if I wasn't mad at him, it was the doctor
    who told me about wheat germ but I haven't bought it in a while.
    I'll buy it tonight just for you luv.

    You obviously got my pm ?????

    Oh you're a star...it's for your TedBear you realise, so more than worth it

    I sorted out the bowel problem...Licquorice Allsorts icon_yikes haven't had them in years, but they definitely work I'm sure you know them too? Over here the main brand is Bertie Bassett.

    OK everyone else now thinks I've completely lost the plot

    Hubby isn't keen on eggs..maybe that's wise!!

    Have now replied to the PM...sorry I get there eventually!

    I just love you, since it is for Tedbear I will send you cases of it.
    But then again, we don't want a little rollie pollie on our hands either.

    Everybody loves you Nikki.
    I love your sense of humor.
