    Shoe leather, John. It’s what’s for dessert when you’ve just stuck your foot into your mouth for the 4,836,371st time.

    Except for the liver, everything else tastes delicious. I even don’t give a darn if shoe leather’s gonna be my dessert.

    Well, I’m with you on the liver, temploSUD (I despise liver with every fiber of my being!). However, I don’t have a problem with spinach (I have always loved it), but creamed squash? Eww!

    I’ve eaten liver without liking it much, but the idea of eating what amounts to the garbage can of the body is not an attractive one. Consider what the liver’s job is to do.

    I’m with you on that one, Nab. It doesn’t taste that good and where it’s been, no one knows.

    Well, It’s not like the cow’s been marinating itself at the bar every week or taking antipsychotics and benzos for a lifetime.

    Liver has lots of iron and is one of the best foods for you. The secret is not to overcook it….a few minutes on each side is fine. Creamed squash? Again, spinach has lots of iron which is excellent for the blood. One thing to note…all these items are quite cheap…and it indicates that John’s salary is not enough to keep up with the cost of living.

    I think Elly needs to take a cooking class – or at least watch Food Network – or was it even on then?

    The heme iron in liver and red meat has actually turned out to be very bad for the heart. And the myth that spinach is rich in iron was caused by a clerical error when the clerk was recording the amount of iron, it has no more iron than any other leafy vegetable.

    All I know is that the Liver is a poison filter and can’t under stand why people would eat it.

    My mom made me eat liver and lima beans before I could go trick or treat but when I threw up in the plate, she gave in.

    Same here but since I hated spinach as well as liver I asked her to always make the two together so only one meal was a wash up, not two. To this day I will not touch either one. It may be rich in iron but I’ll find other ways to get iron.

    my mom used to make smothered Liver and onions and we had to eat it, I don’t mind it but it has to have LOTS of gravy and onions to cover up the taste. The texture, well there is nothing that can help that. Back in the 60’s I was anemic and in addition to my iron pills the Dr. told me to eat Liver at least once a week, which I did but mostly I ate it alone, no one else would eat it.
