This week's column is here so I am not a one week wonder...LOL I do however need a big favour from all of you. If you want and only if you want, tell all your friends and family about it and ask them to leave a comment!!! A big thank you in advance for doing that!
Today's recipe uses a meat that you either love or hate, I don't think there is an in between as far as liver is concerned is there?
I love liver always have, and as I am lacking in iron in my body this is a simple way for me to make up that iron deficiency. If you can, pick up calves liver, however beef liver is fine, just soak it in milk for an hour or two in the fridge before you want to use it. Beef liver can be a bit harsh tasting, so soaking it in the milk takes away that harshness.
Pack of liver, around a pound in weight
half a dozen slices of bacon chopped into small pieces
1 onion sliced and roughly chopped
1/2 lb or more of mushrooms, sliced
Oxo cubes, or concentrated stock
Fry bacon in a large pan until it has released a lot of its fat.
Meanwhile cut up liver into bite sized pieces, and coat them in seasoned flour. Add to the pan with the bacon and sear the meat until browned on all sides. Add in the mushrooms and onions and continue to fry adding some vegetable oil if needed.
Cover the ingredients with water and bring to the boil. Add in a couple of Oxo cubes and a couple tablespoons of "W" sauce. Turn down to simmer and simmer for around an hour. If the liquid is too thin, dissolve a couple of teaspoons of corn starch/flour in some cold water and add to the pan.
You can also add frozen peas and corn 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
This is good served with mashed potatoes or rice. The leftover's are good for lunch next day even if its just the gravy and rice left.
***You don't have to add the bacon if you don't want too, I didn't this time and it's still as good***

Today's Money Saving Tip:
Do holiday shopping right after the holidays. Most people use this technique for Christmas, but it works for every holiday. Wait until about two days after a holiday, then go out shopping for items you need that are themed for that day. Get a Mother’s Day card for next year the day after Mother’s Day. Get Easter egg decorating kits the day after Easter. Get wrapping paper and cards and such the day after Christmas. The discounts are tremendous, and you can just put this stuff in the closet until next year, saving you a bundle.
