I created this in response to a request from LilSister. I felt it was a great idea, and had a lot of fun creating it, with LilSister's help and input.
I cloned the Chef's Salad, but have made several coding changes. It is available anytime of the day, but Sims must have at least a level 3 cooking skill.
If your Sims has a food processor they will use that, but are able to make it without one also.
Mixing bowl and processed in food processor.
Once completed Sims will set the bowl on the floor, at this point the bowl becomes a pet food dish. Which changes how the food works a bit. I believe the food stay permanently, but will spoil if you download the spoils version. I have made two version as I felt the food spoiled to fast. The file that does not end in spoils will never spoil, which I know is unrealistic, but I wanted to give everyone a choice. You must only use one of the other do not try to use both versions in your game.
Pets who are hungry will be attracted to eat it, as long as they have not be trained to only eat pet food. Sim may call their pet to eat too, there is also an option to clean up and an option for the Sims to eat it. Some Sims will have a want eat the gourmet pet food, so I felt I had to add this option, as I was not able to remove the want trigger.
Pets don't need to eat very much of this to fill their hunger needs, and they also gain comfort and social.
Credits and thanks to LilSister for the idea and for helping with testing and additional options.
