I’m pretty hungry right now. But I’m trying to hold out for dinner. I shouldn’t be sitting near the kitchen, because there are homemade brownies sitting on the counter. They keep looking at me. So I thought, hmmm, what could deter me from eating some crap and ruining my appetite before dinner? Ah, my trusty “The ABC of Casseroles Book.” Certainly one of the recipes will gross me out enough to lose these hunger pangs for awhile. So I started flipping through the pages, and there it was: Liver Casserole. Enough said. As if I wasn’t grossed out enough by the fancy poem on the previous page:
Eke? I guess that’s like “EEK!! A disgusting casserole!” Well, even though the title “Liver Casserole” did the trick, I just had to keep on reading. And I’m really sorry I did:
Liver, okra, lima beans, celery, green pepper … all on the list of foods I can’t stand. Well, I did eat deep-fried okra once, and it was okay. But it’s probably not okay drowned in bouillon and mixed with … gulp … apple jelly cubes. I need a chaser after reading that recipe. I think I’ll go watch an episode of “Bizarre Foods” with Andrew Zimmern.
