What's on today's menu & recipe sharing ~2011~

Post by cutecrustacean » Sun Jan 09, 2011 4:48 pm

Tonight*
Banana Pudding:
3 bananas
A splash of milk
A cup of oats
Many raisins

First, mash up 3 bananas in a bowl. Add milk until the bananas are at pudding consistency. Then, add a cup (or more) of oats and stir. Last, add as many raisins as you want and continue to stir. You can freeze what you don't use.

My crabs are seeming to love it. :D [/i]

Oak leaves
Flower mix
Coconut oil
Naturally Berried kibble
Silversides
Copepods

Zucchini
Goji berries
Super Fruit Powder
Strawberry Fruit Chilly's

And a pinch of their staple food mix I made.

Last night I offered some freeze-dried pineapple that I just crumbled into the food dish (along with some of the usual variety of foods), and I had a crowd around the dish fighting for the pineapple...by the morning they had polished it all off! Guess I found a new hit with my crabbies!

On cold stormy nights like this, my crabby's love a nice hot meal!

This hot meal consists of two dishes


Dish 1 - The pulp of carrots, parsley, and spinach. Sprinkled with my homemade calcium and color enhancing powder.

Dish 2 - Homemade color enhancing veggie omelet and hand shredded coconut all sitting in a dish of warm coconut water.


Yummy Yummy!
