My boyfriend and I always joke that our dog Billie, looks like a sad clown. She has a black muzzle that gives her a 5 o’clock shadow and black fur all around her eyes that kind of make her resemble a mime. Her middle name is May for Maybelline because of all the make up it looks like shes wearing. Yes yes,my dog has a middle name, I also dress her up on occassion (I haven’t posted her Halloween pictures yet), pass your judgments. I’ve become, in only a few months, a dog person.
I thought I’d take a break from chocolate, especially since my Valentine Bill, can’t have it and do instead a recipe she could enjoy:
Toby’s Tuna Triangles
Makes about 40 triangles
From Baking for you Dog by Ingeborg Pils
1 can tuna fish in natural juice
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
9 oz cornflour
5 oz rolled oats
2 oz flour
Drain tuna, then blend with olive oil and egg in a blender. I just mushed mine up with a folk. Mix with the rest of ingredients to form a dough. I found I had cornmeal, not corn flour so I improvised by using a few oz of cornmeal, and 8oz of spelt flour. I also added some scallions I have left over from dinner.
Roll out to 1/2 ” thickness and cut into triangles. Place cookies on baking sheet and bake at 350 F degrees for approximately 25 minutes. Store in a cookie tin. Will keep for about two weeks.
