And speaking of cleaning out the garage...we had a seal tight dog food container from the house in MO just sitting there looking at us and we were trying to decide if we should throw it away, keep it, give it to the animal shelter and then it hit us...we can use it to store all the blankets for our vehicles to cover the seats with when the dogs get in the car or whatever we need them for. So....if you have a left over dog food container, use it to store blankets and towels!!! It fits perfectly under our utility sink and is out of the way.
We took the dogs everywhere we went and because they were very very good...even at Lowe's (which I'll blog about later), I wanted to make them something that they love...zucchini medallions. I normally just cut them up and keep them in the refrigerator with their baby carrots but today I decided to get the dehydrator out. This is the easiest recipe ever!!!!!! Here it goes...are you ready????
Cut up one zucchini into medallions any length or width you want. I chose to cut mine thin. Lay the medallions on your dehydrator and cook at 155 degrees for 3 hours. I made 40 medallions. And that's it!!!
I had never done this before and wasn't sure how long to cook them but maybe increasing the temperature would shorten the cooking time??? I could have kept them on a bit longer but the monsters were getting impatient. See Jake's face below...haa haa. For the most part they turned out crispy expect for a few but Jake and Maggie gobbled them up so fast it didn't matter!

Another way to use your dehydrator is by cutting up chicken or steak into thin strips and dehydrating them at 168 for 8 hours. I don't use any seasoning because they are for Jake and Maggie. Once they are done, they should be like jerky. I put them in a seal tight container and keep them in the refrigerator.
