  • Another item that is bad for pets is chocolate. If you see pet snacks that look like they have chocolate, read the ingredients and make sure it is carob.

  • FTFA: "The concern is if there's any melted marshmallow on top," said Kimmelstiel. If there is, and if it's sugar-free, it may contain xylitol - a popular ingredient in sugar-free gum - which can cause dangerously low blood sugar and liver failure in animals."

    Sugar-free marshmallows.  On sweet potatoes.
    Huh.

    that's because you're supposed to put the sugar-free marshmallows on regular potatoes!

    also the sugar-free marshmallow fluff goes on chip butties.

    Still a bit more likely than "You could have twine in your turkey!"  Seriously?  If you're dumb enough to leave twine in the damn bird, you're likely not bright enough to be cooking

    Fair point.

    So the sugar-free marshmallows go in with the butter while mashing? Or do I put them in the cooking water?

    I have to ask because, you know, for the pets and all.

    great, now I'm a little frightened that if I GIS for "boiled marshmallows" then one or more rule-34 level abominations will automagically become created... oh huh, mashed potato fudge is An Actual Thing??!? I really shouldn't have pressed the search button.
  • It's traditional where I live to make panallets in autumn. These are predominantly ground almond and sugar (yes, marzipan) but as ground almond is quite expensive it's normal to bulk out the dough using mashed sweet potatoes.
  • Well-meaning people poison their pets every day. Not just on Thanksgiving.

  • Some good advice and a big dose of alarmist bullshiat courtesy of the pet food industry.

    Alium vegetables IN HUGE AMOUNTS. If Fido eats three onions that can be bad. Some broth or a piece meat the has a piece or two sticking to it? Almost certainly not a problem.

    Sweet potatoes are absolutely fine. The expensive dog foods the vets try to coerce us into buying are full of them. Rover shouldn't have a huge flip of marshmallows on his dinner AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU.

    They don't even bother  coming up with a believable bit of bullcrap for turkey! "It's horribly fatty!" No. It really isn't. Not compared to pretty much any other meat on the shelf. Just don't give your animals cooked bones.
