A doggy treat recipe
Here it is November. Let the holiday preparations begin! A large part of that revolves around food. Just this month we’ll need munchies for all the big football games, hors d’oeuvres for guests, snacks for out-of-school kids and the full-blown feast from appetizers to dessert for Thanksgiving.
With all the extra expenses and time-consuming tasks we require of ourselves this time of year we surely don’t need sick animals. We can’t foresee and prevent everything but we can be careful about letting four-leggeds sample two-leggeds’ food. They don’t need the extra calories just when we’re so busy and probably shorting them on exercise. And some of the things we eat are downright indigestible for them. Chocolate is a prime example. To us it’s a treat. To cats and dogs it’s poison.
However, since we all like to include our pets, here’s a recipe for a doggy treat that won’t wreak havoc on digestive systems. It would also make a nice holiday gift for your dog-loving friends.
Beefy Dog Treats
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In another small bowl, dissolve bouillon in boiling water. In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, milk powder, wheat flour, rice and gelatin. Stir in the baby food, egg, oil, yeast mixture and bouillon mixture until combined; knead until mixture forms a ball.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with a floured 2-inch bone-shaped cookie cutter. Place one inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. Let stand for 24 hours or until hardened. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 3 dozen. (From Taste of Home Annual Recipes, 2008.)

Asiatic flu closes schools - 21 schools closed
Norman McKenzie, superintendent of the Holly Springs’ schools, announced this week that the schools would close and remain closed until Monday, Nov. 4, because of the serious outbreak of Asiatic flu. When school convened on Monday of this week, it was most evident that closing the doors of the white school, the Rosenwald colored school and the 17 other colored schools in the district was a necessary step to take. Hardly a home in this community has escaped this epidemic of flu.
