Thyme is an extremely gd herb for MANY purposes... like... preventative against gingivities, digestive tract, expels worms, skin infections etc etc etc!! can be used in various forms as well... its juz too much to write here... I sneaked a peak @ Mom's Herbs for Pets Book lol! Mom has decided to add a tiny amt into our food daily. I hope it tastes gd!!!!! it better!
Dill also sooths the stomach n digetive tractas well as improvin diet like indigestion or bloatin etc etc etc! Mom is gettin this for Aunty D's boy..... hope it works! or brings bout some improvement.....
Today, our entire family - Mom, Dad, Grandpa & Grandma went shoppin WITHOUT us... again as usual. Well, from what smartie me noes, I tink we're BARRED, BANNED & SHUNNED @ shoppin malls, hoo-mans eatin places, & almost everywhere else in SG except desginated dogruns, farms, & dog cafes.
Yes, we'll be stared @ distastefully... or shunned... or worse, even our hoo-mans will be thrown outta the mall should we tag along... basically, yes its a CRIME for us to be anywhere else except those 'specially designated dog places'. sheesh!
Mom uses to always bring us together & eat as a family whenever they eat out. Now, the authorities are very strict bout this & the local ppl will complain by snappin pix @ sendin it to the online public media. So, Mom has since stopped bringin us whenever they go down for dinner.
Seriously? Seriously! I tink these rules are ridiculous! Mom can't bring us anywhere, since she doesn't like the idea of dogruns, nor designated dog pools @ dogFARMS... & can't unleash us @ local beaches (because its a CRIME to unleash a dog in SG, includin beaches & anywhere else). So Mom only brings us to dogcafes @ times when her wallet permits her to or simply... a gd looooong walk/run around our pathetic neighborhood.
Sigh... since they ALL went shoppin WITHOUT ME..... I guess its just logical & common sense for Mom to get somethin for us in return. Sooooo... since im sucha foooood maniac (& bird maniac as well), Mom got me some very very very juicy stuffs...... I saw these when they returned...
Japanese Green Pumpkin. This entire small piece will last us up to 1 to 1.5 weeks. can't eat too much or else we'll end up pooin ooooeeeyyy stuffs! but the flesh n seeds are definitely gd for our digestive system & prevents constipation
Mom 'dug' up some flesh & seeds for us. the seeds are to be grinded tmr with our veg. we eat the flesh n its absolutely YUM-MIE-LEE-CIOUS! (Mom: the seeds are sooo smooth they keep slidin off my fingers! its no wonder they serve as great lubricants)
organic new zealand apples (half the size of normal apples u get but cost twice the price), juz like our organic eggsalso from new zealand. now i wish im stayin @ a farm in new zealand... sigh...
some extra information for u guys... oh i juz ate some, much sweeter n yummy than normal ones! (Mom: 1kg of 8 palm-sized apples @ $5.99. u go do ur math)
some organic honey cherry tomato? (Mom: it tastes HEAVENLY... i love it! the gals love it! 200grm @ only $1.80)
organic oranges for the family... which i tink i'll be given a lil' if i act well enuf...
I guess they're called Navel Oranges becuz they look like hoo-mans navels? Grandma said oranges with these 'navels' taste a whole lot better................. sweeter............. (Mom: 1.5kg 7 oranges @ $9.99!!! gosh!)
yipz, dats bout all! hopefully, the hoo-mans will now make a trip there every weekend... Mom hasn't tried the organic apples @ the shop below our house tho' (where our eggs n veg come from). Mayb we should one day.....................................
What is Omasum, most of you would be wonderin? It is the cow's 3rd stomach. The more commonly known "Tripe", is the cow's 4th stomach. The cow has 4 layers of stomach. So thick eh! I wonder how many layers I have...
(Mom: Beef organs (stomachs, lungs, livers, kidneys) are considered the BEST amongst all other animals'. Hearts & Tongues are considered muscle meats, not organs. So, the gals r just gonna consume 200-250grms each of the beef stomach once a month for a day's meal, & no other organs are needed again for the rest of the month. ;P )
Thanx to Aunty D for helpin Mom get it today. Tripe wasn't available so we had to make do with Omasum which is superb too. All these are unbleached, which is very important as bleached tripe or omasum has zero nutritional value... so bitches & dogs, no point eatin bleached ones... The cattle over there are also very controlled... unlike the ones you get from wet markets... which are from M*******. (update: i'm so sorry but these are all bleached and washed as raw green tripe is illegal to be sold anywhere around the world due to its unbearable stench making it unfit for human consumption... that is unless you're a farmer, or live in rural areas where you can purchase them raw and fresh, directly from hunters. no point asking the sales people too as they really don't know anything and will just tell you they are raw like what they told Mom. A simple test would be to boil them and see if the color changes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripe )
Wanna see some Omasum?
prepacked Omasum! it looks like some cloth material...
oma-sum-sum on my bowl... pardon me but i juz love the word..
the back of my 'sum sum'
topped with supps: Vit C (wit digestive enzymes), fish oil & Vit E (for today)
It is already a balanced meal on its own w/o our RMBs (Raw Meat Bones) today... (oh we also had veggies in the mornin rdy). Mom has read up the analysis of tripe... & it is totally superb! one of the fav. raw stuffs many Caucasians love to feed their pooches with. Oh yea... U dun have to wash it too... Mom simply cut off all onto our bowls... topped wit our supps (for the day) & tada!!!
