OMG, It’s Monday! Prayer: October and Liver

O my God, thank You for October, with its colorful leaves and pumpkin-spice everything. But some of Your humans have declared it National Liver Awareness Month. OMG, do You think we should spend 30 days thinking about liver? After half a century, I’m still trying to forget my mother made me taste it.

      Hehehe, Karla! You and I think alike. At my first job as a waitress at Howard Johnson’s, I couldn’t believe people paid perfectly good money to eat it! (I had to smile and look like I enjoyed the smell as I brought it to the table.)

      Thanks for your brilliant comment (I love people who agree with me). Hope you have an excellent writing day!

    My mother cooked it with onions… I think we had this when Mom decided to use “extra parts” from The cow. (She grew up on a farm.) I was not fond of heart, but we thankfully never indulged in other unusual pieces. But because my father enjoyed liver and onions, it occasionally ended up on our plates. My brothers and I were far from thrilled.

      Angie, given its nutritional value, I really tried to interest my family in liver–despite the fact I couldn’t stand it! They never bought it. Now I don’t have to be a good example any more, I don’t touch it 🙂

      Thanks for your comment, and let’s eat more chikin.

    My late husband insisted that I eat one piece of Liver when it was served at our cafeteria at Whites. I had them cover it with lots of onions. After he passed, it was served maybe about 3-4 mos. later at the same place and like a good wife I took my one piece……………only to realize, after I got to the table, I did not have to eat this anymore………….in his memory, I did eat that last bit of Liver. (19 yrs. ago) I do not miss it.

      I’ve never eaten liver in memory of a loved one, Kathy. I admire your devotion! I’m sure you miss your husband. Not surprised that you don’t miss that awful liver.
      Blessings, and I hope you eat something really good today 🙂

    Laughed till the tears came at your question. Brains, liver, heart, head cheese, pancreas, intestines, blood sausage- German food belongs to the most offal in the world. (My first Christmas in Germany I went four days without eating anything but bread and potatoes- herring in onions and cream on Christmas eve, Deer in blood sauce on Christmas day, innards stew on day three, and tongue on day four. ) At least the Christmas cookies are good here.I thank God I married a man who is both 1. tolerant of non-offal eaters- (at such times I just tell him I am taking a day out to be vegetarian.) 2. Helps me keep others off my back at the time (usually by eating second helpings) since such behavior is considered distinctly odd here in Gutenberg land.

      Oh, my word, Kate, I knew Germans like their sausage, but ewwwwwwww! At Christmas, I think I would become a permanent cookie-arian–no problem with seconds, thirds, fourths, etc. Would that solve the culinary cultural problem??
      When I’m eating turkey and dressing for Christmas, I’ll think of you and breathe a prayer.
      Blessings,
      Rachael
