    Default Recipes for using Friskies cat food

    Considering the cost of animal protein vs the cost of cat food, I'm wondering if
    there are any useful recipes to incorporate the Filet style cans. The chicken,
    turkey and also the beef look and smell very nice. I could see them warmed up
    and put on top of rice or pasta, but are there any other ways to use them.

    It's not like I'm likely to do so, but anythings possible

    What Muffins Say About Mitt Romney
    By MARIE MYUNG-OK LEE
    Published: September 2, 2012

    My parents came here from Korea after the Korean War. My father
    arrived on a cargo ship with $200 in his pocket. From those humble
    beginnings, he established a flourishing medical practice, one that
    sent four children to college and let him achieve one of the highest
    marks of Korean immigrant distinction: the purchasing of a Burberry
    scarf.
    ....

    During the Korean War, when everyone was hungry, he told me, Koreans
    would take garbage and boil it to make a kind of stew. Of course that
    seems disgusting, he said. But it was better than going hungry.
    Despite being a physician, he happily ate foods tipping into
    rancidity. He drank sour milk. He reheated coffee. He once bought some
    Sheba Tender Terrine with Turkey and Chicken dinners, impressed by
    their cheapness, and would not be dissuaded from finishing his supply
    when we informed him with horror that it was cat food.

    The itty bitty cans of gourmet cat food cost a lot more than buying a
    hunk of poultry and preparing it yourself.

    basically true, but currently I can buy a pound of friskies (actually 16.5
    ounces) for $1.35. after factoring in prep time and cooking, that's pretty close
    to what I would pay for a pound of chicken thighs at Costco

    Consider contacting these guys: they were baking and selling taralli made
    with animal fodder instead of flour

    And it's a hell of a deal for a tasty meaty melange of 4D (dead,
    dying, diseased, downer) slaughterhouse animals, roadkill, and
    household pets that end up at the rendering plant. Read up on the
    definition of 'animal byproducts' sometime.

    The price of cat food has escalated even as the content of the
    cans has decreased. Bah!

    OK, the manufacturer claims it wasn't an ingredient, rather an
    absorbent material:
