I Can Make You a Man

Today's food-ical interlude, courtesy of chef dad - welcome to Chez Bogart:

Start with only the best fresh ingredients...

I like my carrots GRATED, not sliced...

Add some water to the pot with the carrots... simmer while moving on to the good stuff...

Slice that beef tripe into small pieces...

Mmmm... Corazon (beef heart - we had to learn this because we go to a Mexican butcher)

I must sample the corazon to be sure that it's fresh and chopped to my specifications...

Looks pretty good dad...

A pat from the vegetarian... notice the foaminess beginning to develop on my mighty beard...

Add the meat to the simmering pot...

Sometimes I get a little rice, sometimes pasta. This week - rice

Mmm... liver - don't forget to chop that into little pieces!

BOGIE STEW

Smells mmm mmm good

Ah, the proverbial full bowl...

It's awfully good... I'm going to start eating while dad finishes up...

He adds a few scoops into a plastic quart-sized baggie...

Then weighs it (I usually get about 1 1/2 pounds)

And here is the finished product - a weeks worth of organ-y goodness!

Even kitties LOVE it!

Love,

Bogart

Bogart!

Mmmmm. Mmmm. I want to crawl through the pooter and join you for dinner, man! Your dad sure knows how to make a stew a dog can sink his TEETH into.

On a personal note, I've never had organs, but my girl is looking into the BARF thing, so hopefully there will be corazon in my future.

Goober love,
Stanley

OMG, does that ever look tasty! I'm glad you told us what the tripe was! I've never seen it like that and I was wondering what that white sheet stuff was! That's the stuff that doggies all die for!

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Hi, Bogart
Corazon, higado, panza. Yummy! Your food looks really good!
Did you know that there is a dish called "Menudo" here in Mexico made with the beef tripe? People say it is very good when you have a hangover!
Have a nice day

We are so there, Bogie...that is the best thing Lac and I have ever seen. You get to eat 1&1/2 lbs at every meal??? That's about 15% of Lacie's body weight...I wish I were a Dale, but we smallish terriers have to watch our caloric intake. Your stew looks the BEST!!!

Hungry barks, Scruffy
