Actually I think that's partly right - you SHOULD just throw the whole thing away, LOL!

I hate mint! all mint, and any member of the mint family should be dug out of the ground and burned, with all mint seeds on the planet destroyed. I shouldn't have to smell other people chewing mint gum, or using mint jelly, or peppermint candy canes. The stuff is just nauseating, and grow, enough to make one hurl.

Now, how did that make everyone feel. We who enjoy liver don't say that you have to enjoy it. Just as it's ok to enjoy mint. I promise, I won't breathe in your face after eating liver, or liver products. I hope you will extend the same courtesy to me with respect to mint.

I think the liver thing has been beaten to death. Here's an idea. Let's turn to something constructive, like what foods don't pair well, or what herbs and spices don't play well together, things like that. Let's use this forum to help each other avoid cooking mistakes.

For instance, I can tell you that cinnamon and raisins do not work in marinara sauce. And you can ask how I know that.

With you there, Carol. I like it lightly cooked but not bleeding.

In the 1920s and early '30s the only treatment for pernicious anaemia (a fatal disease in those days) was to eat large amounts of raw liver. Addie's neighbour's doctor must have been very "old school".

Now, now. It is a "what food we really hate thread" - liver is a pretty commonly hated food. I absolutely cannot abide liver, but I can still laugh about it. Surely those who love liver can laugh about it too! After all, they have less to fear - in that department, at least, LOL!

Marshmallows. Can hardly stand the thought of them. Now that American Thanksgiving is coming up, I hope I don't have to see them in sweet potato casseroles or jello desserts and such, but if they're being served at a dinner I'm attending, I'll be gracious and have a bite.

Yeah. We had a lot of them. Now you have to go to the clinics in your favorite hospital to see your "Primary Care Physician." No more Doctor's Office Visits! Doctors can no longer 'hang their shingle out'. They get their name of letterhead instead. Along with 20 others on the same sheet of paper.

I have a Doctor, my PCP who oversees my Cardiologist and whose office helps with scheduling my mammograms, etc. I was able to choose her.

Depends My PCP is in a clinic connected to the medical school, which doesn't have its own hospital, my GI doctor is in a private practice with maybe 6 others, and my neurologist is in a practice connected to the largest local hospital system. It's not one-size-fits-all.

Doctors can open a private practice of their own, but it's usually not cost-effective. Some doctors do "boutique" service where they don't take insurance and charge cash for all their services. Only for the well-to-do, of course.

What about your psychiatrist, GC? LOL (just kidding)

I have had the same PCP for 20 years. He is in a stand alone practice with 1 other doctor, and 2 NPs. You can get in to see the NP the same day if you have the flu or something when you need treated right away. That is less expensive than going to Med Express, where you have to pay the "specialist" copay. My cardioligist is in a stand alone facility with 4 or 5 others. The same with my gyne. It has only been in the past several years that our hospital opened a couple clinic type places were you can go for bloodwork, xrays, and recently they added PCPs and also some specialists to the clinic.

Why, did something I said make you think I need one?
