    I'm sorry but I think liver is totally disgusting. My Pops had me try some once and, well, out of respect I won't tell you the outcome.

    Tonight we're having baked ziti.

    When my mother was a "single mom"... our meals were planned out weekly. Friday were fishsticks, Tuesdays were spaghetti... and so on.

    Thursdays were liver... ::gag::

    Thank heaven's we had a dog... Mom could never understand why the dog never ate her dogfood....

    I won't knock your craving, LPN.... If not for people such as you, I'm certain the earth would be awash with uneaten liver... bless you. :kiss

    MsPurp? I think I need new contacts... when I first read your reply, I thought you said you were having "baked zits" for dinner... I know, I know... that was a groaner, sorry.:imbar

    When I was little, my mother tried serving liver--ONCE.

    After I stayed up yakking all night--and she stayed up running between my upstairs bedroom and the basement changing and washing 3 entire sets of sheets--she never served it again.

    My 3 brothers were eternally grateful.

    I am a proud carnivore, no doubt, but I do not like organ meats.

    when i was a child my mom would make liver and onions quite often and she would try to italianize it by simmering it in some kind of tomato herbs kind of sauce.. uh she didn't fool us.. i actually do like liver but i don't fix it for my family

    My mom can do calves liver in a way that is really good. That is the only way I can eat liver.

    That's my guilty secret - I LOVE liver. I always have done. Calve's liver if it's available, but it's NEVER available in Tennessee.

    But that's all beside the point, because I don't eat it. Yeah, it's got a lot of iron in it, BUT it's also high in cholesterol AND - ewwww, it's a LIVER!!! Can't be good for you!

    Mmmmm - liver and onions with woostershire sauce. Mmmmmm pate......

    *sigh* Oh well.

    Soak calf liver in milk to take some of the strong taste out and fix it with onions! Yum......I also like chicken livers.....don't know why, but I have always eaten them. I also love just about every vegetable out there and people thought that was wierd when I was a kid.....

    My Mom used to make liver once/month or so and serve it with bacon and mashed potatoes. We three kids would each be given a small piece and were expected to eat it. My method was to cut it into the tiniest pieces possible, bury each piece under a mound of mashed potato, shove that in my mouth and follow with the bacon "chaser" . It went down okay, but I think I shivered after each bite, and hoped dessert would finally take the taste out of my mouth... :stone

    The only organ meat I'll occassionally eat is a braunshweiger (liverwurst) sandwich. We grew up having it for lunches and I sometimes get a craving for it spread on rye with a little margarine and lots of mustard-- accompanied by Baked Lays (a MUST) and a couple of sweet gherkins. Stomach is growling now; must be time to fix dinner...
