    2 can beans *kidney, black, white, whatever.....
    1 cup water
    1 cup frozen veggies (I love using broccoli or the Normady style mix which has carrots, broccoli, squash and califlower)
    1 TBSP butter
    1/4 cup rice or dry pasta
    Sprinkle with garlic POWDER--- not salt


    Cook in a pan until everything is soft/cooked, refridgerate leftovers. Good for 3 days. Reheat in microwave for about 1 minute. I usually give about 1 c to adults and 1.5 cups for older puppies. Not sure what I would give a young pup yet that is under 16 weeks of age.


    Story behind this recipe:

    I had become frustrated with the constant battle of Tidus's rings around his eyes. We had been to the eye doctors, and finally I got so fed up with them and their so called "trying to help his eyes" I gave up. His eyes we so swelled but he showed no sign of allergies. Of course it looked like he had entropion because of the amount of swelling. Since he was young we of course wanted to wait if he needed corrective surgery.

    I found an overnight success with changing him to Fromm Beef Frittata. No more problems. Swelling was gone. Entropion was gone. Except the darn ring around the eyes. It was like he leaked that orange color out of his eyes. I tried EVERYTHING.

    A year goes by and one day @wfd38383 posted about tear stains. He was having a huge problem with Senor Chubby. A while later, he posted he accidently ran out of food so we suggested bland diet until it arrived. Later he posted that while Senor Chubby was on bland diet, the stains went away.

    So I thought I would try that. Tried EVERYTHING else. Well, did it about a week and it did not work, so I stopped. Then I tried doing so home cooked meals here and there but he was getting some runny poos so I stopped again. Then recently I was running low on food and new I would not get it for about 5 days or longer so I started it again, this time using what I learned here on the forum, as I believe before I was giving too much pasta / rice.

    Well, I started seeing an improvement after about a week. Not just in his eyes, but his coat too. His smell. His white fur. His weight. Now 3 weeks later I can see a substantial difference.

    I still give him kibble, just on various mealtimes or when I don't have any of it left.

    making my first batch of Tidus's recipe!!!! Oliver is going to enjoy dinner tonight. Also, Ron came home for lunch when I was throwing everything in the pot and he said, "Geez, Ollie, I may have to eat some of that with you, looks delicious." I then told him @desertskybulldogs said that sometimes Papa Delano grabs some while she's cooking hers LOL!!!

    I've been following a home cooking diet for Tate as well since last Saturday (thanks to Lisa's suggestion).

    I put a London Broil steak in the crockpot along w/potatoes. I then add some kidney beans and frozen green beans on top, with some rice. Not only does Tate really love his food (well, he's always been easy to please anyways), but this a.m. I did notice his rusty wrinkles below the eyes weren't AS rusty red as usual! they appear lighter in color which is a good sign. I'm planning to continue this, probably getting some hamburger for the weekend.

    Awesome adding the pics will be certainly a good way to see! Those look very itchy!!! Most of Tidus's problem was strictly around the eyes.

    I was saving this news for a new post, but just to give you all more hope, I started Molly on this diet 2 weeks ago. She has dry eye. Everyday without fail, I have to wash out the giant green goop from her eyes, meds and such did not do anything except for Baytril which is a high powered antibiotic.... but Baytril also kills good bacteria so it is a vicious circle. She even suffered from 2 ulcers due to this condition, and no amount of optimmune has helped her.

    Well, I noticed about 5 days ago the eye boogers were down at least 50%. Now the past few days there is hardly any at all!!!!

    I got some Ofloxin drops because I am not convinced this is dry eye, I think the dry eye is a symptom. I started her on the drops today so I am hoping to finally see her back in tip top shape after nearly a year of this non sense!!! And in all this time, the home cooking has shown me the greatest improvement I could EVER dream of.

    I don't think it bothers him too much, the only time he rubs his face is if I use the malacetic ultra on his wrinkles and rope, then he goes crazy rubbing his face on anything he can. His face is really smelly though and it's hard when he cuddles up to me at night and breathes in my face because all I can smell is his face. It doesn't smell like fritos either, that I could handle. I can't even tell you what to compare it too, just an unpleasant smell. Thank goodness I can only smell it if I put my face right up to his!

    Maybe more of a sour milk scent? that's what Tate has...a very distinct sour-y smell. It's not awful or anything...it's just not something i'd bottle up and sell in the eau du cologne section!

    maybe, it is just really unpleasant when I'm snuggling close to his face! His face is more wrinkly than the other two so I have to really make sure I keep him clean, but getting him on the right food is becoming a nightmare. I think I'm going to have to break down and have him allergy tested.

    Wondering if the rice or pasta is uncooked when you throw it in? Do you think adding coconut oil instead of butter would work? Kimo is suffering with allergies, most likely to Blue Buffalo grain free treats I have been giving him...his eyes are goopy, ears beet red, and itchy and loss of hair...OMG...my poor guy. And his little brother Ollie, a year younger, is suffering from chin acne...so I stopped it this week...thinking maybe potatoes are the culprit...feeding FROMM pork and peas right now...and leary of if it is something in there too...Ollie is on Fromm puppy and had no reactions until, I believe the treats...ugh.
