Turkey Table 2023
Everything on this table came from TJMaxx, Home Goods, Walmart, and Dollar General. Fortunately, Jake and Maggie never beg for food or steal anything from the table.
With the holidays fast approaching, keep in mind our pets can’t eat everything that we can eat. Considering giving your pet some table scraps? Think about the seasonings and ingredients you used to create your recipes:
Keep your pet away from these dangerous festive foods:
*Turkey. Avoid giving your pet turkey meat, especially fatty dark meat and skin (a small amount of unseasoned white meat is okay), and never give them any leftover bones. Not only are bones a choking hazard, but they can splinter inside your pet’s digestive tract and cause a trip to the emergency vet.
*Garlic, onion, leeks, and chives. These seasonings are common in many Thanksgiving dishes and are toxic to dogs and cats – they can cause destruction of their red blood cells. Avoid giving your pet a bite of anything cooked with these ingredients, like green beans, potatoes, stuffing, or gravy.
*Unbaked dough containing yeast. Unbaked yeast dough can cause a stomach blockage if eaten because the yeast in the dough makes it rise and expand. Plus, the natural fermentation of the yeast in your cat or dog’s stomach can cause alcohol poisoning. If you plan on baking some delicious dinner rolls for Thanksgiving, make sure to proof your dough somewhere that your pet can’t get to it, such as in a turned-off oven or microwave, not right on the counter where it’s often in your pet’s easy reach.
*Desserts. Desserts like pies, fruitcakes, or cookies should be kept out of your pet’s reach as well. Many people know that chocolate is toxic for dogs and cats, but so are raisins, currants, and the popular sugar-substitute xylitol. Xylitol, even in small amounts, is toxic to dogs, so keep that slice of keto-friendly/diabetic-friendly/sugar-free pie to yourself.

I hope you can find some inspiration from my table! Whether it be through just color or dishes, I hope you have an amazing tablescape and a wonderful holiday. I’ve been cooking up a storm and have some husband approved recipes to post over the next few months! Jake and Maggie will be enjoying themselves relaxing on the couch watching us cook. They don’t know it yet, but I’ve got a surprise treat for them!
