    I add about 1/4 cup of homecooking to 3/4 cup kibble for morning and night. Noon time I have cut back to 1/2 cup kibble and just a topper- either yogurt or cottage cheese. He is thriving on this!! but I must say, although his poops are nice and formed, they have increased in numbers but I don't mind. He loves his food soooooooo much!

    Dumb question.... Why r you guys mixing home cooked with Fromm? Why not just home cooked? Or is this just kinda the best of both worlds?

    For me ... I'm going to be doing home cooked for all eight dogs. So if I had to cook enough to feed all of them 100% home cooked I just wouldn't have the storage space in the fridge for it all. I know I could freeze some of it, but you can guarantee that either two things would happen. I'd forget to take it out of the freezer, or we'd take it out and neither of us would remember to put it in the fridge when it was defrosted. (Both things happen regularly in our house).

    And as Sunday is my only day off, then I wouldn't have another day during the week when I would have the opportunity to make up a second batch.

    So this seems to be the easiest way for us. I also do love Fromm, and all of them are doing VERY well on it. It's just something that I want to try doing for them, and I'll be honest ... I think it's going to save me a LOT of money!!!

    Yeah my fridge and freezer are all filled already. This is interesting tho. I know my pups would think they went to heaven if I let them eat this way. Great pics Karen! I am guessing your floor needs mopped from all the drool? Lol!

    I started the home cooking when Bogey was on the boiled rice and burger (during his Fromm's puppy diarrhea days). He just loved it and when I transitioned him back to kibble, I decided to keep adding it. Now I like to try different things as toppers. It does save a little on kibble, and with 4 dogs, the difference could be really significant! Good luck!!

    Im with Karen, if I homecooked for all 8 dogs I think I would be barefoot in the kitchen cooking for them all day long! LOL I make a pot full and it lasts for 3 days, 3 dogs get some each meal (randomly)

    The ladies go ga-ga over chickpeas, so maybe you want to try them. If you buy them dried you can cook them yourself (to reduce the amount of salt in canned) and it can be frozen. You'll save a ton of money (same for kidneys). They also are huge fans of parsley, both fresh and dried. Also healthy.

    @kazzy220 - sorry I am so late to this thread your dish looks super yummy!!!! I also just give 1/2 kibble 1/2 home cooked (or 1/2 honest kitchen whichever I feed that meal) and the babies just dance with excitement for their meal.

    @cali jenn - I started the home cooked for my foster Rita, I wanted to add some weight to her poor skinny little body and thought she would enjoy being spoiled with the home cooking. she had it pretty rough before she came to stay with me, although it was a short time (she has already been adopted) she loved her meal times
