Seeing as I still had some leftovers from Thanksgiving and I wasn't about to eat some of it (cranberry sauce and turkey necks), this is what the gliders are dining on tonight:

Mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, green beans)
Apple
Cranberry sauce
Mashed potatoes
Turkey neck (2 necks broken into 18 pieces so each glider would hopefully get a chunk)
HPW Complete

Val, did you make a broth or just cook those items in water?

I simmer the chicken, celery and carrots for about 7 hours, then just add the rest of the stuff and simmer for another 2 hours or so.

Ok, sounds good. I think my guys would LOVE soup. I can't have them out when I eat soup or they're fighting me to get into my bowl :p.

Tonight is a bit of junk food night. I had to go grocery shopping after work for fruits and veggies and green juice and didn't get home till after the sun went down. Therefore, the gliders got some "easy for mom, quick for gliders" food:

Scrambled Eggs
Sunshine Slaw, Broccoli Slaw, Frozen Mixed Vegetables (Corn, Peas, Carrots, Green Beans)
Frozen Triple Berry Blend (Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries)

Later, I'll be chopping up the fresh fruits and veggies I bought and making a new batch of HPW Complete with Green juice.

I would like to say I fed my girls Val's Diet last night along with plums, avocados, and cauliflower and all of the staple was gone! I even fed more than suggested!

My parents have been visiting this week and for Christmas, I got a deep freezer. Since we are still in the apartment, it's plugged in, sitting in the living room and I made sure my boyfriend knows it is for ANIMAL FOOD ONLY. LOL.

On top of that, he got to go on an Alaskan hunt last month and brought me elk, moose, deer (okay, that one is good ole Oklahoma White Tail), Caribou, and Muskox. There was a group that got together through a big game hunting website, so they split their wares between everyone, so that every person got to take home quite a bit of different meats.

That said, we are going exotic with our raw proteins for the next few weeks (months? years? LOL it's a lot!).

Tonight is:

Elk
Moose
Macho Bananas (Large Plantains)
Red Jalapenos
Sugar Cane
Jicama
Bok Choy
Tomatoes
Mushrooms
Mango
Papaya
Flax Seed
Ayurvedic Warming Mix
(All of the above wrapped in Banana leaves)
Raw Goat's Milk

For those of you in Dallas, Houston, or Austin, go to Fiesta Supermarket. They have a HUGE ethnic produce selection and they are cheap. Half of the stuff there I cannot pronounce!

We made WAY too much food for this fine holiday, so today the gliders are eating tossed salad, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, apple, clementine, plum, mac & cheese, and turduckin.

I feel bad for my girls after reading some of these posts! Dinner tonight for the three musketeers: High protein mix, broccoli, yogurt with calcium sprinkles, and a few mealie worms. I am so worried about the calcium/phos ratio that i stick to my 2:1 list pretty exclusively so I skip some of the things I know they like.

Dinner should be fun, GliderDad. What should be most important is feeding a nutritious and well balanced meal - it shouldn't be all about the numbers. I don't look at numbers...I don't look at ratios. I feed a very large variety, every single night. My gliders are happy and healthy!

So for us tonight...our Staple mix, along with:

Beets
Beet greens
bananas
clementines
carrots
mango
broccoli
snap peas
yucca root
potato
asparagus

and chicken!!

Wow DCMuffin, that spread sounds great! I bet your gliders are happy. heck, I'd be happy with that dinner :) I will have to get more variety in my servings for sure. Do you just mix all that together or something?

I do. I chop everything up, then mix it together in a bowl and spoon it into all their feeding dishes/toys. They eat better than we do, I think LOL. Dinner time is always a joy here and I love seeing them enjoy new things. :)

It is nut. The outer shell is spiney the next layer is white soft very sweet. This is the part the gliders love. Then the middle is the actual nut but my gliders don't like that and just throw it away.

Cool...I'll have to watch for those!
I'm in the process of getting ready to switch to Val's Green Diet. I am still using the HPW Complete, but am trying new veggies/fruits. Last night's dinner was:
celery
green & red grapes
strawberry
canteloupe
pea pods
sweet potato
parsnip
yucca root
cherry tomatoes (for 2 - others won't eat them)
I hid a couple kibbles each throughout the cages

The picture was taken before the HPW was poured over the top. And Levi gets a clean, returned monkey with his dinner :o) He eats as much as 2 adults. Georgie and Poppy always get extra in case Georgie eats Poppy's before she has a chance to get to it.

I am finding that it's fun to see what I can find for them at the grocery stores. My husband is going to have a new list of veggie requests for the garden this spring. And I have a friend who is into growing organic flowers - he knows I will have a wish list for him this year. In fact, if anyone else wants to add to it, he says he is willing to dry and sell them. I am going to open a coconut tomorrow and see how that goes over! Do you let them have the milk? Hmmm....
