I have a tongue I have been meaning to make thanks for the recipe.  I make liver pate fairly frequently, probably today for lunch actually.  I generally have chicken livers as they are easier to come by.  We love it. 

 

I did have grains(corn tortilla chips) a few days last week.  Totally regretted it. I didn't sleep those nights.  Funny how before corn chips were one thing I would indulge in even while being 'grain' free and I still felt good.  However, I didn't give up the insomnia until I totally gave them up totally.  I didn't realize the connection until it had been a good while off of them and I tried them.  Now, I value my sleep very much, especially w/ 3 kids now.  Does anyone else get insomnia from grains?

 

Last night I made mexi spiced pan-fried chicken with some fried cauliflower rice and salad.  Today will be scrambled eggs for breakfast, pate  for lunch and chili for supper.

I've given myself a sugar/grain sensitivity. In order to better stick with the diet the rest of the time, I utterly destroy it on holidays when I'm going to potlucks with pie and cookies etc etc etc.

 

Only, turns out I'm going to have to hold back more. I started eating grains and sugars around 8pm and by midnight my skin was crawling. I had to grit my teeth to finish nursing my daughter to sleep.

 

Had some probiotics today and don't have any more issues.

Suet seasoned with pepper and salt (from seasoning the beef while cooking) worked well, but after being stored in the fridge is solid, and I'm not coordinated enough to make fresh mayo every time I need some.

Remove from liquid and stick it in the fridge. The water can be strained and used like broth to cook other things.When its cold, peel the skin off, slice or cube. Pan fry in oil to give it some color. I usually steam some potatoes, chill and toss them together in the cast iron pan. Its a great quick lunch w the meat and potatoes already cooked and cubed in the fridge. My fave accompaniment for it is a cilantro mayo. Or i put it in a tortilla w a dose of sriracha (obviously not grain free). There was a thread on offal a while backmin this forum. I posted the liver recipe there. If you search my username and marsala it should come up. I cant really post a link from my ipod. But in theory the recipe should work for any liver, although i havent tried it. Ive had commercial pate made from pork liver and it was excellent, so its just a matter of finding the right recipe.



I tried searching for your liver recipe and couldn't find it :( Would it be possible to post the link to the thread?? :)
