The Best Pasta Salad at travelanimaldr.com

This is the best pasta salad from travelanimaldr.com.  It is easy to make and even easier to clean up. Make it Vegan: There are cheeses available for vegans. You can add and detract vegetables from this recipe to your tastes. I have had corn and vegetarian pepperoni instead of bacon with this pasta before. Easy Clean Up: If you do not want to dirty a bowl you can add ingredients to gallon sized bags and shake them up. This also saves up some room in the refrigerator. Ingredients: 8 oz Rotini noodles 1 cup of Italian dressing 1 box of Morningstar bacon 8 oz cheddar cheese 1 tomato 1 orange pepper 1 can of sliced olives 6 oz cauliflower 1/3 medium onion cilantro to taste Directions: Follow directions on box to boil rotini noodles in water and strain. Microwave Morningstar bacon for 1 1/2 minutes (follow directions on back of box if using a different amount). Cut up pepper, tomato, onion, bacon and cauliflower to bite sized pieces. Cut up cheddar cheese into small cubes. Combine cheese, tomato, pepper, cauliflower, onion, bacon, and noodles and mix well. Add 1 cup of Italian dressing. Set in refrigerator to cool. Ready to serve after cooled. My Review This is truly the best pasta salad and it has been my personal favorite side dish for as long as I can remember. The beauty of the recipe is that you can take away and add ingredients as you like. For instance, while I am completely obsessed with the Morningstar Bacon brand, there are also brands of pepperoni that are vegetarian. Our family adds cilantro to our pasta,...
Travel Animal Doctor: The BiteNBrush™ Toothbrush Design

Travel Animal Doctor: The BiteNBrush™ Toothbrush Design

Word of a new, revolutionary dog and cat toothbrush to brush my dog’s teeth has received my full attention. -Travel Animal Doctor The bristle and toothbrush designs appear to adapt to the construction of the animal’s teeth rather than against the normal dentition and jaw. Using my current pet toothbrush, a derivative of human toothbrushes (1-sided with flat bristles), can sometimes be a challenge to get full contact on every nook and cranny of the teeth. The following are my opinions of five toothbrush designs, the last being the design of this brand new patent-pending product called the BiteNBrush™. Other Toothbrush Designs: 1) The longer handle, 1-sided toothbrush The longer handle is a necessary adaptation for a dog’s mouth. The one sided bristles do well to brush the outside surface of the teeth. It can be a struggle to adequately brush the inside, lingual surface of the teeth (the surface by the tongue). Jade, my dog, bites down on the toothbrush making it more difficult to brush away plaque on the inner tooth wall. Although long handles provide distance from the bite, unfortunately they also create unnecessary fulcrum, rocking the brush on every bite and making the task more difficult. 2) The longer handle, 2-sided toothbrush These toothbrushes are similar to the regular toothbrush in dogs. The handle is long so that you can reach the back teeth easily. The end with the big brush does well getting the full surface of a tooth. Two different size brushes on each end does allow you to effectively brush a dog’s teeth. However, there is still that struggle of your dog...
Travel Animal Doctor: National Cherry Blossom Festival

Travel Animal Doctor: National Cherry Blossom Festival

This past weekend was the end of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C.. – Travel Animal Doctor Breathtaking Views The majestic view of the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument, was intensified one thousand times over by the allure of the pink and white petals and aroma of sweet cherry blossoms in full bloom around the Tidal Basin. Prepare for Crowds Monday the petals started blowing off of the trees in a whirlwind blizzard of delicate colors and sprinkled the ground like a carpet of petals across the Tidal Basin walkway. As the sun set, crowds of people were photographing the spectacular scenery before them. It seemed like every family from the Washington D.C. surrounding areas had the same idea to catch a lasting glimpse of the natural beauty in the Capital. As the crowd shuffled along, it was hard to stop for fear that the people behind would be caught in a foot traffic jam. Glamorous Beauty Under the cherry blossom trees the petal carpet is so dense that all you see is white and pink. A reminder to all responsible pet owners in the area, that when seeing this beautiful petal carpet, do not forget about the potential toxic threat cherry trees are to your cats, dogs and horses. Even though we enjoyed the sights, smells, and beautiful weather we needed to keep a watchful eye on Jade because being the curious canine that she is, her sniffer was going a million miles a minute. On a normal hike or walk through the park this would not be a big deal.   Inedible to Pets But with the...
Travel Animal Doctor: Oyster Cracker Snack

Travel Animal Doctor: Oyster Cracker Snack

My sister in law, Nicole Claudio, gave me this oyster cracker snack recipe, and it is a really tasty and healthy snack. – Travel Animal Doctor It takes about 5 minutes to prepare. A handful is great when you just need a quick snack between meals. Ingredients: 24 oz. Oyster Crackers 1.5 cup vegetable oil 1 pkg. Original Ranch dressing (dry mix) 1/2 tsp. garlic salt or powder 1 Tbl. dill weed Directions: Mix oil, dressing, garlic salt and dill weed in a large bowl.  Add crackers and stir to coat completely.  Stir occasionally for next several hours. Using a plastic bowl with a tight lid works well as you can shake, roll or just keep turning over the whole bowl.  For best flavor, let set several hours or overnight before eating. Review I make this snack whenever I am craving something salty. While you can use vegetable oil or olive oil, the last three times our family had this prepared snack, coconut oil was used instead. The ranch and dill flavoring is delicious. While you can taste a hint of sweetness from the use of coconut oil in some meals, this snack still mostly tastes like ranch and dill. I depend on this snack heavily because it is relatively cheap and easy to prepare, it lasts, and it is extremely healthy. Making it myself allows me to be in control of the majority of ingredients used to prepare the snack. It also keeps my husband and I from buying salty snacks from the store with excess fats. Recipe Alterations A possible alteration to this quick recipe is making the oyster crackers...
