Jewel's notes for this recipe:
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.

OH MY JEWEL, what a Wonderful Story, I am So sorry to Hear You Lost Your Home. I wondered why we had Not seen You in a while. We have Missed You!!!
Now on with the Liver and Onions, I love Liver and Onions, and this is exactly How I cook mine.
Funny story is I have a gal friend whom her Husband Can't stand liver. So We tease an make him suffer when all 3 of us go out to eat, She and I order Liver and he Goes to another Table. . . We Really love Messing with him like this. . . while we enjoy our Liver and great Friendships.

Can't beat Liver and Onions once in a while! Growing up we had to eat this dish whether we liked it or not and though my Mother was a good cook, her liver was like shoe leather! Thanks for the recipe Jewel.
