After the April 27th tornado took my home I stayed with neighbors. My little Schitzapoo stayed with me. I had to be near to see about things, hubby stayed at a local motel. They fixed a wonderful bed room for me and Cricket. Their home was our home. Katherine is 91 and her son lives with her. She is totally amazing, doesn't look or act her age. We talked about enjoying Liver and Onions and she's a wonderful cook. Last week they invited me to lunch and she had the most wonderful Smothered Liver and Onions with creamed potatoes and a garden salad. This recipe is in honor of my wonderful friend and neighbor Katherine Cobb.

Dear Pam, so sorry about you being hit by a tornado too. When you are older like us it's harder to spring back but we are finally used to our new home.

Nine years ago we lost our lovely 1913 home to Mini Tornado's as well. One son had his hand sliced by a piece of metal flying thru the air. Thankfully that was the only physical injury. It was heartbreaking. It all happens so fast you don't have time to do anything. Tornado's are not common where we live. Wish you all the best in rebuilding.

Hi Linda, yes, we built another house different to what we had, it's a bungalow style house and I really like it. I feel so sorry for folks who have these natural disasters. Thank God, we had good insurance. Just buy some calf liver and cook your husband some liver and onions, it's not hard to do at all and, I actually think you will like it.
Cheers !

I hope you had your house rebuilt. This is happening all over the country and the gov. doesn't help rebuild anymore. I feel so bad for the people of Sandy, New Jersey. My husband loves liver and onions I won't fix it because my parents made me eat it. lol Linda

Thank you Ellen !! And, I'm sure yoou can steam the liver and onion longer just turn heat down real low so it doesn't burn. Creamed Potatoes? You mean the popular Southern dish? I make Creamed Potatoes 3-4 different ways. I will check on this.
