I like chicken livers but cannot do beef liver . . yuck.
Chicken livers are wonderful sauted with mushrooms.
The slow cooker is indeed a good way to keep gizzards especially from getting too hard and chewey. I get frozen bags of organ meat practically free from a farmer whose customers rarely ask for the giblets. If they've been in the freezer a bit to long to be prime, I share generously with my pets. I do worry a bit about toxins in livers, so I try only to eat organic organ meats.

As a poor student in years past I slow cooked beef hearts . . they turn out quite tender.

LOL different strokes for different folks I guess... I love the darn things! I even love beef tongue when I can get it, but I've never cooked it myself

Some people if they can't tolerate the look of the hearts whole will slice them up and use them in stir fries too... I think they're pretty common in some Asian cuisines prepared that way actually.

I guess there's just not too much that I won't eat, or at least won't TRY

Okay, if any of you out there drink homemade protein shakes/egg creams and have never blended some macadamia nuts into one along with some ice... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? It's seriously good! I was really surprised, but that's the best egg cream I've ever made. And all because I really needed to up my fat for the day SOMEHOW and I decided to get creative.

You're welcome

Yay Darin! I grew up eating them, so I guess I never I got the "eww" factor from them at all. When I was lucky enough as a kid my mom would make something called giblet soup, which was like chicken soup with homemade hungarian style dumplings and gizzards/hearts. She'd always fish out the most hearts for my bowl because she knew I loved those the most

I keep wanting to cook beef heart, but since the first time I saw it at the grocery store I haven't seen it come back... I knew I should have snatched it up when I saw it! Weirdly enough, this area seems pretty devoid of butchers too but I wonder if my farmer's market (since they have a meat section) would be able to sell me beef heart on a special order? Or maybe the Asian grocery downtown might have it, because I know they stock a lot of interesting organ meats. I'll have to go on an offal scavenger hunt!

I had to use an ad blocker extension to get rid of the picture. i didn't want to risk seeing it again if I scrolled back up the page!

I'm with you on being grossed out by organ meats. I've actually been thinking of switching to vegetarian NK because I'm kind of tired of meat. My protein needs are not that high, and I would still be eating eggs and dairy.

Do you soak the macadamia nuts before blending them? Back in my vegan days, I used cashews to make creamy non-dairy sauces. They were easier to blend if I soaked them for a few hours.

Nope, I didn't! But I actually didn't think of that I just threw them in my blender and went to town blending it along with the ice... I kind of liked the tiny little bits of nuts that were left over in the shake. It reminded me of when I used to order milkshakes places, which was really nice because I drive past a Steak N Shake all the time by my apartment, and it drives me nuts not being able to have one anymore

This particular one was made with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1T of HWC, 1/8 cup of macadamia nuts (I used the chopped kind, so that's probably why they blended pretty quick!), 1/2 scoop of protein powder, some SF peanut butter Torani syrup, and 1 large egg. Oh, and ice

I got my grade back for that accounting test I thought I bombed. 74. PHEW. Class average was a 61.

I just get really stressed because I can't get less than a C in any of my classes or I'll have to retake it. I am on such a tight schedule with the sailor getting out of the Navy and our subsequent moving to wherever he gets employed next. I do NOT want to end up living in Savannah for 4 or 5 months without him.

I feel better now though.

Boy, do I miss fishing. opps my ADD is acting up.
I may have to buy some livers, hearts are on the bucket list, gulp, mammybe
Actually I think gizzards taste better than hearts. Something about the texture, but my own opinion. Try them both.

My Dad is the reason for some of the things I eat that an ordinary picky person would never touch like the chicken innards.

Tomato preserves is another thing that he got us to love. Sooooo good on buttered toast.

I liked it a lot! But they brought it on a bun! I sent it back.
I think I'll buy some blue cheese crumbles to put on my own burgers.

ive dropped a tiny bit (yay!) just a half pound but i'm hoping thats now a downward trend

i'm having trouble eating enough, i have zero appetite and i just go all day without eating.

we had friends over for dinner on thursday night (it was a public holiday here) i made meatball madness - meatballs with lots of shredded veggies included in a rich tomato and vegetable sauce with spaghetti. I like it because i can just leave out the spaghetti for me and i'm not cooking a different meal for everybody else.
I could only eat two, and they're not big, maybe the size of an egg, i was totally full

do you suppose its really true that if you dont eat much your stomach shrinks? i've always thought that was crap but it really feels that way

Aww what a bummer! I would have sent it back too! Whenever I've asked for it on a lettuce wrap instead of a bun it's always come out correct... one of the waitresses even called it "protein style" which I thought was pretty neat, since I think that's an In-N-Out Burger thing and I'm all the way on the East coast pretty much

Glad you enjoyed it though! I was never even a huge fan of their until I started eating the bunless lettuce wrapped burgers there. There's just something about those burgers wrapped in lettuce that tastes SO much better than the burgers I used to eat

The bar I love that's down the street from my place has something called a Black and Blue burger, that's a Cajun style blackened burger patty topped with blue cheese. It's awesome! I agree, blue cheese is great on burgers

Oh man, don't even get me started... EVERYTHING is good on buttered toast

I've actually never had tomato preserves though. Sounds interesting I know they've got a whole bunch of different interesting preserves and jellies at my local farmer's market (they're family owned and operated and make a lot of their own products) but it's just too bad I can't really try most of them now. I sincerely doubt they're ketogenic foods

I really do think my stomach has shrunk, except for the week before TOM, then I feel like a bottomless pit. (like today)
