Inspired by Turkey and Oatmeal Dog Treats

A Toothbrush Is a Useful Tool

Share those Thanksgiving turkey leftovers with your pup by turning them into crunchy oatmeal cookies. Your dog will be begging for them at breakfast and dinner!



• 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour • 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats • 1 tsp baking powder

• 1 cup turkey or chicken broth • 1 1/2 cups shredded turkey


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 2. In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, and baking powder and set aside. 3. In a blender, add broth and turkey and pulse until it’s the consistency of baby food. 4. Add the meat mixture to the dry ingredients and mix it well. Then, on a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and knead it. 5. Roll out the dough and cut it into fun shapes, like bones, leaves, or turkeys. 6. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. 7. Let cool, then your dog can indulge in the flavors of the season! Take a Break

Every 3–4 months, we throw out our old toothbrush and replace it with a new one. This practice keeps our teeth healthy and strong. However, even when you stop brushing with your old toothbrush, it doesn’t mean that it is no longer useful. After sanitizing an old toothbrush, try using it in these ways! Household Hacks One of the best things your toothbrush can be used for is cleaning. The long handle and bristles make it perfect for cleaning hard-to-reach places where a cleaning cloth just won’t cut it. • Keyboard: A computer keyboard can catch dust particles, pet hair, crumbs, and other debris between the keys. While using a can of compressed air might clean some of it, going over the keys with an old toothbrush can help remove those particles for good. • Jewelry: Over time, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings can become dirty, and what better tool to clean them with than a toothbrush? The bristles allow you to get into those tiny, delicate nooks. • Keurig: Don’t dread cleaning your coffee maker anymore! A toothbrush lets you reach the places a rag can’t go and scrubs away the hard stains. Beauty Hacks

An old toothbrush can be used to help you achieve your perfect look. Just remember to disinfect it thoroughly first before using it on your face!

• Mascara: One of the biggest issues when putting on mascara is clumping your lashes together. By using a toothbrush to carefully brush out your lashes after you’ve applied mascara, you can remove any unwelcome chunks. • Eyebrows: When you’ve just woken up or finished washing your face, you might realize that half of your eyebrow is pointing in the wrong direction. Instead of using your fingers, simply pick up an old toothbrush and brush them out! No more need for an extra eyebrow comb. • Hair: When you want to give your hair a little extra texture, a toothbrush is the tool for you. Instead of having flat braids, give them some volume with a few quick brushes. You can also use a toothbrush and some hairspray to tame those pesky flyaway hairs!
