Welcome to the Week #4 100 Cat Food Recipes in 100 Weeks Challenge!
Last week we promised to prepare “Chicken Barley Porridge” for our Jury of 5 cats (Poofah, Mr. Alphons, Myratz, Tito and Pierre) and, well, we prepared
Homemade Cat Food; Recipe No.4 Chicken Barley Porridge
The time required to get it done is about 40 minutes if you already have a beef broth ready, if not, it will take about 1 h i 40 minutes to prepare this meal.
Here is what we need:
- 1 cup of chopped chicken
- 1/3 cup of hulled barley
- 1 carrot
- 2 cups of beef broth
So, let’s get started!
Cook the chopped chicken, barley and chopped carrot for a 40 minutes in beef broth.
As always, at least one of the jury member has to inspect the process and make sure all is according to the Cat Food International Standards, Reg. 1305/3341-CAT. On the image below we can see Tito in inspection.
Drain and mix all ingredients.
Once it’s cooled it can be served to the jury. On the image below we can see Mr. Alphons testing the recipe.
If you’d like to know more about our jury of five, please see the post with the first recipe, we introduced our jury here ->
And here are the votes:
Poofah: “OK. This is a bit better. I already started to worry about you. Will give you three points which is the highest you got so far in this challenge of yours. As an extra bonus, I will not piss in your kitchen for a while. There.”
“I knew, sooner or later, your work will start showing some results. You see how persistence and hard work eventually pay of, my dear. Four points coming up your way, keep up the good work.”
Myratz: “Look, you may have reached the standards of these sorry excuses for cats, but you are still far away from reaching mine. Let alone that I will ever talk to you. However, I’ll give you three stars, just to keep you rollin’.”
Tito: “Yeah!” short silence “Yeah! Yeah! Gimme more of this!”
Pierre: “Well, well, well… now we’re getting somewhere. This is the best meal you prepared so far and I congratulate you. Here goes four well deserved stars.”
Since each vote of the jury members has the same “weight” we will calculate the average. Total stars given was 19 divided by 5, well, average is 3,8.
This is by far the best recipe we prepared in our challenge.
Next time we will come up with something based on sardines. The working title of the next recipe is:
Sardines à la Cat
(well it’s just roasted sardines but we’re preparing them for cats so we called them Sardines à la Cat :))
Until then, stay well!
