Chop Day Recipe

Sponsored Links
My friend Janine (who owns the rescue) and I decided to have a chop day on Monday, and make an enormous amount since between us we have around 120 birds. We got started at noon, and had to go to a couple of stores to gather everything, and then were back at my house by 2:00pm and got started. We had my oven and all 4 burners going from then until 10:30 pm, and finally finished with the packaging at 11:45pm...a long, but very fun day!
We also made muffins which I will make a new post for
We used over 50 ingredients in the chop:

White,red and black quinoa , Hemp Seed
Boiled popcorn kernels , Chickpeas
Yellow and green split peas , 5 bean soup mix
Mung beans , hulled sunflower seeds
Red, Green and yellow lentils , Pumpkin seeds
Millet , Vegetable pasta
Cous Cous , Zucchini
Chia seed , Green Peas
Corn , Pineapple
Long grain brown rice , Pomegranate
Papaya , Strawberries
Sprouts , Celery
Blueberries , Wheat Germ
Pot Barley , Bok Choy
Swiss Chard , Snap Peas
Broccoli , Cauliflower
Red,orange and yellow bell peppers , Jalapeno peppers
Beets and beet greens , Slivered almonds
Kiwi , Flax Seed
Parsnips , Sweet Potatoes
Cranberries , Oats
Spelt Flakes , Carrots
Amaranth , Green beans
Turnips , Pumpkin
Rutabaga , Coconut
Spaghetti Squash , Chili pepper flakes


Here are a couple of pics of the prep and finished chop:

Re: Chop Day Recipe

The only thing I would love to see in the picture........... Is the 120 birds hitting that room just before it is all packed up . THAT would be funny

Re: Chop Day Recipe

Next time we are going to get started much earlier and already have the ingredients. Poor Reg worked all day, then came home and had to do the water change/evening chop for all our birds. After they had their time out, he joined Janine and I and washed dishes for almost 3 hours non stop, only taking a quick break to mix the chop in the ginormous tub Janine brought. It was 3 feet tall and so big around my arms couldn't fit around it...and we filled it almost to the top..lol..
I think he may arrange to take a vacation on the next chop day..lol.

LOL! That would be a sight to see for sure...but I think I would need a new house after a lottery win to have that much room! We set up a 6 foot folding table in addition to my dining table, and still had stuff on the counters, sideboard..everyhere..lol.

Re: Chop Day Recipe

Walt, if you want to come help, we can leave that stuff right out next time!
I had a hard time chopping the beets for some reason so you can take that on for sure

Re: Chop Day Recipe

O my gosh Terry! That is an INSANE amount of chop Please tell me you at least had a food processor to help with some of that chopping! So how long will that amount take for 120 birds to go through?
