After the whole casserole fiasco (post above) and  a certain comment he made about my cooking (see this post), I was in a very bad mood with Goon. Moreso because he didn’t seem to want to apologise and he spent the next day sulking, refusing to help with any of the household chores and definitely not helping in the kitchen while still expecting me to feed him. Grrr! Men!

I had an easy way to solve this problem. If you’ve been a regular reader of this blog you’ll know that Goon has a lot of trouble cooking without supervision. If I were to stop cooking for him he’d either live on takeways or his previous diet of tinned tuna on rice and plain noodles cooked in stock. The easy way to stop him sulking would be to refuse to cook for him at all. But that wouldn’t be as fun as what I decided to do.

Again, regular readers will know, Goon hates lightly cooked liver, okra, and very spicy food. Since Goon was refusing to come into the kitchen I had no problem in producing this for dinner that night.

peri-peri chicken livers

That’s lightly cooked chicken livers in an extra-hot peri-peri sauce with added okra thrown in. It’s garnished with big slices of red chilli. Mwahahahaha! :twisted:

 I told Goon the next night we’d have gumbo, the night after that a beef and bhindi phall perhaps followed by some type of liver curry. It turned out I didn’t need to hold up my threat beacause Goon turned from sulky to apologetic very quickly.  Flowers even appeared the next morning.

Hehehe. I win.  :D Plus the peri-peri chicken livers were actually delicious if you don’t have some weird anti-chilli or anti-liver complex. If I can finish a chapter of my thesis before my next student arrives I’ll write up a recipe for it. 


  1. ha ha I love it - punish him by hitting him where it hurts. Genius.
    I’m looking forward to seeing the recipe - I’ve only had liver the cinese way which i think is usually pigs liver and i think it’s boiled - the taste and texture is just… well… rank!

  2. Hee hee punishment indeed - and I have some sympathy with Goon as I don’t like very spicy food either, or liver for that matter.

    The flowers were a good move though Goon ;-)
