OH picked up some chicken and vegie meatball pet food things in the supermarket and said here, we should get these for Poppy!
Well off I went with the preservative and cost rant! It was no more than 500grams of pet food for $5 AND it lasted a week in the fridge according to the label! He quickly backed down! I am pretty sure the mince I bought (minced chicken carceses) would of been at least 3kg and it was just under $3!
Will just remember to portion off bigger quantities next time as Angela advised that Poppy does need a little more food (see related thread) so thats why I have been defrosting 2 bags some nights as some of the portions are no more than 2teaspoons worth!
