Yikes! Spud!  I'm trying to get over my first (and only, I hope) gout attack in 10 years, and you're making me drool for fresh liver!  That's another childhood memory I can't touch anymore...liver & bacon, or just gently-cooked liver.  Mmmmmmmmm.  I used to like fried chicken livers and hearts, too.

And shrimp...hot, cold, tempura, anyway but garlicky.  I'm a Philistine when it comes to too much garlic.

"Garlic is like piety; a little goes a lonnnng way."  Paraphrasing Rita Mae Brown in several novels.

A few days ago I made a Steak & Kidney Pie.  Well...... it was edible.  Actually, I would call it fair, but not good.  What a disappointment!  The ones I had in Scotland were excellent.  No comparison!

I think the main problem was the kidneys.  I found a small store that had them "fresh".  Never been frozen.  However, they were nearly tasteless.  That probably means they were far far away from fresh.

Next time, I'll order them from "The Fish Off the Old Block".  The meats they order for me are frozen.  Should taste better than these pitiful ones.

I've never had truly fresh kidneys, but I have had fresh liver.  In the small community of 300, I used to live in, there were a lot of farmers, and one gave me the liver of a freshly butchered calf.  

Wow!  One of the top taste-treats of my life.  Nothing like the stuff I've purchased from stores.

I've also had meat and organs from fresh rabbit, and it was also outstanding!

Most of the time, truly fresh food makes store-bought food taste like cardboard.

Sure!  Haha.  But your line sounds like a great compliment!

Spud, do you mind if I borrow the "lumpy brown gravy" line for Valentine's Day? It's got to be better than the last line I used. "Honey, you smell better than a smokehouse ham."

Marijuana is the way to go.  No MSG or LSD for me.

Daniel, I've never tried it with marijuana sauce, but you've given me an idea for an oregano substitute :)

Patricia, I haven't seen that brand.  We go for the lowest salt ones we can find.  But not zero sodium - that tastes awful.

VH® Reduced Sodium Soya Sauce

Everything you love about Soya sauce, but with 30% less salt. It's a great addition to your low sodium diets. Take your cooking and your health to heart.
