Last Evening's Dinner: For dinner last evening, I made Sautéed Chicken Livers with Green Onions over Rice. I washed and dried a container of Foster Farms chicken livers. I seasoned a container of Mexican bread crumbs with adobo seasoning, granulated garlic, and a blend of ground chile de arbol and ground Cayenne. I poured the seasoned bread crumbs into a large Glad container, added the chicken livers, placed the lid on the container, and shook to thoroughly coat the chicken livers. I prepared a cup (dry) of Jasmine rice in the electric rice cooker. I sautéed the chicken livers in extra-virgin olive oil. When the chicken livers were fully cooked, I tossed chopped green onions over them, turned off the burner, and allowed the livers and onions to rest for two minutes. Laura spread the cooked rice on a serving platter. She placed the chicken livers and onions atop the rice and drizzled the olive oil remaining in the sauté pan over this. It was a very delicious meal.
