Corner View: Hmmmm!

One of my husband's favorite meals is liver and onions.
I fixed it for him for his birthday dinner last week,
using his mother's recipe.

It smells delicious.
It looks like veal (which I love).

He persuaded me twice (years ago)
to try a bite.
My reaction both times: Yuck!
Worse though was that the taste lingered for the rest of the day.

So this is my "Things that make you go hmmmm!"
Liver: looks good, smells good, tastes yucky.

  4. My daddy loved liver and onions. It might be a man's dish. I remember trying it as a kid and that was it never again.
    He was one lucky birthday boy to have his favorite dish. Happy Belated to your DH! :) xo

  5. I don't like liver either. When I was little and my mother would make it, the only way I could eat it was to drown it in horseradish sauce.

  6. It looks fantastic, but I am with you. Also, why would anyone want to eat something that functions as a filter for all the bad stuff in ones body????

  10. Hope my boys will ask their wives (in many, many years to come) to fix them birthday dishes following my recipes!

  12. Mom always made us eat liver and onions once a week. Can't say I've continued the tradition :)

  13. Liver and onions! Indeed, as Becky said, once a week, we had that, served on bread. As a child, I liked it, but I've not eaten meat in yonks, so I forget what it tastes like.

  14. i agree. as a child on a school trip i misread a dish provencale from a roadside cafe's menu, and ended up licking off the sauce of the inedible offal. urrrggghhh.
    on that school trip, i wasn't the only one.

  15. As a kid, when Mom made liver, it was awful. It was so dry [and she was a good cook]. The best part? Covered with catchup. Many years ago I learned to cook liver in a tender and nice way... and for some reason I remember cooking it occasionally. That was at least 45 years back. Haven't done it since and never ever plan to. Know some really love it, so bless them. But liver [and other inner-organs] just can't enter my life unless there ain't no choice ever ever ever. [What a blessing of a wife he has, though, who gave him a favorite gift. You're a good lady!]
