This is exactly what I'd like to do, with some additional veggies, because I assume it would freeze ok. Have you tried it? If I only had an oven. Ah well, eventually.

Sounds yummy, but I'd leave out the garlic if you're sharing it with your pet.

Garlic can cause anemia in some animals. A small amount is usually okay, but I'd leave it out of the recipe just to be safe. http://www.felinefuture.com/nutrition/garlic.php

savvyidler, I have only made one loaf at a time, my dogs usually gobble it up pretty quick. And yes, you can add all sorts of things to the recipe even dried fruits and nuts {ground up}. I see no reason why you could not freeze it either. kpickell, you can leave the garlic out if you are worried about it. I have been feeding my dogs lots of garlic for many years, without any problems. I have no experience with feeding garlic to cats though, so can not advise anyone else on the matter.

Both tomatoes and garlic (onions too) are questionable for dogs. There are many people foods dogs shouldn't have, including avacado, chocolate, macadamia nuts, and mushrooms. You should also not let your dog smoke pot. Seriously.
