Dutch Treat?

Don't worry, I wasn't going to say, that's me. ;-)
But see below, in Dutch it's called "Schelvis lever"
I believe it's Haddock liver. I've never really seen it anywhere except for Holland.
It's a really nice little treat and has got fantastic flavor.
I know in Japan they eat "ankimo", it's monk-fish liver. But the taste is different.
I'm always happy when my dad brings me a few cans when he visits me.
Have you ever had it?

Had to share this picture. I have possibly one of the strangest cats in the world.
Because I'm really a dog person and never in a million years thought I'd ever own one (due to my daughter but that is a story for another time), I think she obliges me by acting like a dog most of the time. She chews on the tv clicker, is clumsy like a dog and eats her food like my old boxer used to with much sound and slobber. I couldn't find her but then located her in a garbage filled with clothes.


Breakfast;
Try this marinade. Lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, fresh pepper, dark rum.
Both grilled or in the pan. This marinade keep the chicken super juicy. Below was made in the pan.


Baby spinach with olive oil and balsamic



Green grapes and blueberries.
All combined makes for some "FEEL GOOD EATING" food.

Dave,
Thank you. These grapes I bought were very very green. My kids ate them all weekend.
Have a great Dave!!!!!

Sarena,
See todays post....shout out to you. ;-)

Naomi,
I must agree, she does some cute shit. ;-)
Hard for me to admit...she's really grown on me. Except when she ignores me ;-)

The liver I used to eat with a piece of toast and butter. Now I just eat it as a side snack with my salad or some cucmber salad.
For the spinach I usually use about 2 to 1 ratio. 2 teaspoons or tablespoons of olive oil (depending on how much salad) to 1 tea or table spoon balsamic.
Have a great day!!!!

Marc
