Hi, I do half and half, my guys get kibble by itself in the morning, and home cooked in the evening. I use ground beef, a package of frozen mixed vegetables and fresh cooked green beans, plus brown rice. I brown the ground beef in water, then add the veggies and cooked rice, mix it all together, then divide it into portions. It can be stored in the fridge if used within 3 days, but if you make more or don't use it up in 3 days, then freeze it. I have a Food Saver vacuum sealer, so the food doesn't get freezer burned, but you can use freezer bags as well.
