I should have said I soak it enough to get the blood out. Taking that membrane off the outside makes it less chewy. Venison liver is about the only liver I eat. It is a lot milder than beef liver.

Is liver as good as backstrap or a ham?

I can eat and actually like a few chicken livers. Any of the others turns my stomach.

Today I'm eating a genuine Jail House lunch, menu consisting of:

1 baloney sandwich with a slice of processed cheese on dry white bread
1 pressed ham sandwich with a slice of processed cheese on dry white bread
1 packet small of yellow mustard
1 packet small of mayo salad dressing
1 tangerine (some what green)
4 small vanilla snap cookies (4 dried out vanilla wafers is the reason they snap)
4 oz of Fruit Punch contains 10% juice, ingredients listed, filtered water - High Fructose Corn Syrup - apple juice
(It is good to see jails spend as little as possible on meals)

For the last 26 months at the request of his mother and father (mostly his mother) I've been trying to mentor a
6' 3" 230 lb 24 yr old black man. It has seen varying degrees of success and failure.
It all started upon his release after 9 months of incarceration on a 5 year sentence. (No drugs or alcohol involved)
Long story short he messed up on his probation (temper) and now has to serve 90 days in our county jail.
He was within inches of going to prison to finish his 5 year sentence. Never saw anyone so happy to (just) go to jail.

After many starts and stops along the way he had finally gotten a full time job with a company willing to employ
convicted felons. He enjoys his job, because his skills are not over matched, even though the hours are 6 am - 6 pm.
By paying the jail, $140 each week in advance, they allow him out on work release up to 55 hours per week which
includes 2 hours of mental health counseling each week which he also pays for out of his own pocket in advance in
addition to the $140 work release fee. When I picked him up this morning the guard handed him the lunch.
13 miles later when I dropped him off at his job he left the lunch, telling me to "Throw it away, I'm sick of jail food."

I cannot throw away perfectly good food, it just is not in my dna, so it appears this is what I'll be eating later today.
Update:
I cheated by adding bread and butter pickles and grilling the ham and cheese sandwich.
(not really cheating as I'm not serving a jail sentence) :)

I should’ve took a picture but I was too busy dipping and forking it into my mouth. My wife cooked dressing, giblet gravy, homemade macaroni and cheese, chicken and dumplings, cream 12 peas, creamed corn, yeast rolls and cranberry sauce. I fried a turkey, grilled a Boston butt, and grilled a few sausage. Then we had banana pudding, carrot cake, Oreo delight, chocolate-chocolate chip cake, cookies, cherry cobbler and some other assorted desserts. It was a true Christmas feast to say the least. My wife payed attention when she was growing up. She cooks like she’s got the experience of my grandmother. I really wish I’d have taken a pic.
