Tasty Tuesday – Koko’s Favorite Vegetable

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our twenty-fourth participating post!

When I joined my forever family, I quickly learned not to mess with the original Kitchen K9’s sweet red pepper tidbits.  As you may or may not already know, Mom shares lots of veggie tidbits when she makes salads.  I’ve noticed Mom equally divides the tidbits and makes sure we are fed one, two in alternating order to keep things fair and square.

Except when Koko received her sweet red pepper… she couldn’t get enough.  Mom watched her intake for tummy purposes of course.  She wished Koko could tell her why that veggie in particular made her happy.  In honor of Koko, we would like to share a recipe with sweet red pepper (ok, we love the yogurt part, too… and I, Kitchen K9 Jetty, like to lick the olive oil off the tablespoon measure!)

Roasted Red Pepper, Feta and Yogurt Dip

  • 2 lg roasted red peppers
  • 8 oz. plain low fat yogurt
  • 1/3 c. crumbled feta cheese
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp. raw cane sugar

Place ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Another great, sweet red pepper day.

      Wowee wow wow! Mom is The Kitchen Counselor you know… let us know what would be most helpful and she will dig around to provide something tasty! We would love to contribute… would you like Mom to write a forward? (I don’t really know what that means, BOL!)

      • Hey Jet,

        I checked with the folks in charge and they said they’ve received a good number of salad recipes but anything else would be great. You can have your Mom send the recipe(s), forward (yes!) and the name you would like listed with the recipe to goodmewsnews@gmail.com and I’ll get it in the right hands. Submission deadline is September 30th. Thanks for the help, Jet!

  4. Hi sweet Jetty – Koko sure had great taste -red peppers are one of my favorite veggies – I haven’t tried them with Cassie yet but know that I know they are ok for canines I will!

    Happy Rosh Hashashona! (sp??) Wishing you and your family so much health and happiness in the New year! Did you have a big meal? I bet your Mom can cook up some super yummy traditional foods – I bought kugel, knishes, soup and pot roast from Aroma Kosher market – David and Jacob said it was very good!

    sending peppery goodnight hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom, Rachel and Puffy xoxoxox

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.

      Oh she sure did have great taste… Mom has more stories up her sleeve. Yes, let us know if she likes them!

      Thank you so much, and thank you for the beautiful card, we loved it. We use another card service called Jaquie Lawson. We didn’t know about yours!
      May the new year bring as much sweetness and joy as you give (which would fill the world!) and health, happiness, and abundance to you and your family.

      This year Mom made salad for her friend’s small gathering. Your selection brings back lots of memories for Mom…

      Sending honey sweet Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley xoxoxo

  5. Hi, sweet Jet! We are so glad to meet you. We never hard of a doggie eating peppers before. We just read Savannah’s interview with you. We had both sads and happys tears. We are so happy for you that you have a loving home and family now. You sure are handsome. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Hey Chancy, Jet here. Hi Miss Mumsy.

      Our distinct pleasure. You are furriends with many of our furriends, we see you along the comment queues!

      Thanks for saying I’m handsome, makes me blush… I try not to think of the “before” time, since my life is so happy now. (with the exception of booms and streaky lights)… oh yes, we love sweet peppers here at Casa Jet. Koko taught me and I taught JJ!

      Sending Jetty kisses and JJ hugs.
