Mark had leftover beef pasta with a spinach/iceberg salad to start things off.

It looks like a B.E.L.T.. Is it? bacon/egg/lettuce and tomato? Hubs likes those. I don't like egg that much. Can cook the daylights out of them, just don't like to eat them. I think it's the mouth feel.LOL
He took fish oils pills and that helped pretty well but, the doc decided on Lipitor (sp?). He was in the 1500s I think and the last time he was below 100. That stuff is amazing.
The liver and onions was/were a hit last night. I can still smell them in the house. YUCK!

liver was cheap when i was a kid. mom made it at least once a week. YUCK!! she fooled me a couple of times. she would slice it in half so it looked like a cutlet. then she would do an italian breaded cutlet treatment. it looked and smelled like chicken or veal i cut into it and put a big bite in my mouth. 2 chews and spit it out!!

after that i started asking whats for dinner before i went to school. the next time she said liver i said ............. only make enough for you i'm not going to be hungry. needless to say that didn't fly.

LOL I'll bet not. Wouldn't have worked with my mom either. I had to eat what was put in front of me. If mom and dad were having liver, that's what I was having. OR I didn't get up from the table until it was finished. LOL

Whew, makes me grateful for my mom and dad's philosophy: Try everything, but if you really can't eat it, you can make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I went out with friends last night and had fish 'n chips and a green salad. DH was umpiring a ball game; before he left, he ate the rest of the Italian sausage/peppers/onions/penne skillet dish left over from the other night.

There was six kids in my family. We ate liver, never complained. We even fought over the little bit of Spinach left in the serving dish!!!!

Nope... it was justa BET ... no lettuce, plus cheese.

My Grandpa liked liver and onions. It smelled good when it was cooking, but I would not get near it with a ten ft. pole.
