As many of you know, we have been eliminating soy from our diets, and eating hormone-free meat and poultry. It has been an adventure, to say the least.
When we bought our hormone-free, grass-fed cow, we were offered the ....um....inside parts? There's got to be a better way to say that. At any rate, we politely decline on everything except the liver. I'd heard that liver in moderation was good for you, and I know some people think it at least tastes really good. So, I tried cooking it yesterday.
I almost threw up.
It smells horrible. I mean really, really horrible. The whole downstairs smelled bad. Perhaps I didn't cook it right, but I am done with liver. I couldn't even get myself to sample it, because every time I got it close to my mouth, it just made my skin crawl.
I know people have talked about being made to eat liver when they were younger, and I never realized how good I had it. Thanks, Mom, for never making me eat liver. I am now realizing anew just how great of a Mom you are.
While we won't be attempting to eat any more liver, Yarbo is fairly certain Christmas has come early, because I diced it up, and have been giving him a little in with his chow. We're pretty big into not wasting food, so I'm glad he likes it, because we sure couldn't stomach it!
