Liver Lover

I eat liver. I eat pork liver, chicken liver and a few times, beef liver. I know a few people who wouldn't even touch it. I really think they're missing out a lot in life. Liver is one of the most appetizing and gratifying animal products I have ever tasted and there are so many ways to cook it. 

My mom does the grocery shopping for home and liver is not a staple really. It's a luxury! There are just occasions when she brings home a little package of that creamy rose-colored stuff and it delights me all the time. Aside from chicken skin, chicken liver is one of my most favorite kind of barbecue. 

The pork liver couldn't even match the chicken liver's savory goodness and its mouth-watering softness that melts in your mouth.

Hunger brings the best [recipes] out of people.

I was starving a couple of hours ago so I fixed myself late dinner. Early this evening, I did a 4km walk around the sports center oval and just had water. Last year, I started walking 4 to 5 km a night for almost 2 months then stopped in mid-December when my sister and her family flew back into the country for a month's vacation. It was all downhill from there. Last night, after 3 months of being a couch potato, was my first time back on the track. Tonight, my second time. I'm pretty much determined to keep it up since school is almost over and work is about to begin (hopefully next month). I missed the tracks. The hour's worth of freedom and free-thinking just going round and round the oval. It's priceless.

This recipe right here, is so good and so simple, I asked myself why I haven't thought of it before. It reminded me of ages ago when a friend and I wrote a song. It was around lunch time and we could seriously eat a horse but we opt to finish the song. In 30 minutes, we've written an awesome pop song. After eating though, we tried to make another one, something even better than the first. It took us the whole afternoon to come up with something we didn't even cared to keep. Also, there are times when I wouldn't eat before a test. I find my mind work better when my tummy is empty. I have never looked it up before but now, I did and here's what I found.

The Chunk of Life

It's hot here in my side of the planet. I sometimes wonder if it's as hot anywhere else, but today I'm not giving you a recipe for a cool dessert. Last Monday was our final culinary function in school and it was quite a charming night. We got rave reviews from the guests which warmed our weary and sleepless hearts.

It does feel good when hard work pays off.

Yesterday, we get to clean up the kitchen and I get to bring all the leftover ingredients. I lugged home almost 2 kilos of white onions and thought up a good use for it since I love its sweet, juicy and biting taste. Found some chicken and coconut milk in the fridge and felt it's a perfect time to make a diy-eats comeback after being out of content for a month.

Here's my treat!
