The family tradition continues…
I spent a couple pre-school years living in Ste. Genevieve, MO where my dad had a job teaching and coaching. One of our family things was to occasionally have Sunday brunch at the Hotel Ste. Genevieve (or The Old Hotel to the locals). Old it is indeed, dating back to 1901 although that is a babe considering the town dates to 1750 and has homes still standing dating to 1792 – amazing since this was a frontier town.
Anyway… the Hotel was a favorite place of mine as a child because they had 1. great fried chicken, 2. all you could eat liver knieffles, and 3. “Shirley Temple” drinks for the kiddos (that would have been ME!).
So on my trip to MO for Little Bird’s birthday it was decided to make a family trip back to The Hotel. That’s my Mom, Little Bird and Sis (Little Bird’s mama).
At The Hotel you order your entrée – there’s about 8 different things to pick from… fried chicken, kettle beef, pork loin to name a few. Then with the meal comes with your salad, plus family style sides (all you can eat) of green beans, sauerkraut, dressing, mashed potatoes and LIVER KNIEFFLES!!!

The above is the kettle beef and liver knieffles.
So Miss Little Bird had her very first liver knieffles at the ripe old age of 1 year and 4 days.
She thought about it for a minute…
And she loved them! That’s my baby! (Sis wouldn’t let her have the Shirley Temple… no sodas allowed yet).
