I have been skinning and eating rabbits since seeing Michael Moore's movie Roger and Me. It is amazing how easy the fur comes off and how much people are willing to pay for it.

If I had a pet pig/lamb I don't think I would want to eat him either ! But where non pets are concerned rabbitt really can be utterly delicious and is also a very healthy meat. It is eaten in most countries. You do get a lot of small bones ( which is why it's not a good idea to feed it to cats or dogs) but the flesh is tender and subtly flavoured too.

I promise I will never eat anyone's pet if I can avoid it. Otherwise for me most meat is fair game as long as it is humanely reared if from a farm animal .
Thanks Mooseketeer I agree as long as the meat is humanely reared I will eat just about anything. If I am not friends with it I will eat it but if I pet it just once I am a goner. I would make a pitiful farmer!! If I had to raise and slaughter my own meat I would probably starve.

I would also make a bad farmer. I want all of my meat in nice clean packages from Publix.

Long ago I did eat rabbit once. I taught school and one of my student's parents trapped and hunted. The student kept talking about the rabbits, so some of us decided to have a "rabbit" dinner. I wasn't very thrilled about the idea, but went along with it. The student brought the skinned and cleaned meat that was frozen in a paper quart milk container to school. (My parents used to freeze fish the same way).

At this school we didn't have a refrigerator for the teachers. The media center director had a small one with a tiny freezing compartment that she kept in the teacher workroom area of the media center. The director told us that, space permitting, we could keep things in her refrigerator if we signed a sheet a day ahead of time. One of the teachers managed to wangle a space even though we had missed the sign up deadline. The director would have died if she knew what was in her freezer!

Our secretary, who was in on the secret, had an office directly across from the work room. She hummed and sang "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" off and on all day long. The director kept saying she did not understand why the secretary was singing spring songs when it was fall.

The rabbit was fried like chicken and served with cream gravy. I managed to eat a little bit. While we were cleaning up I had another small bite. Room temperature rabbit was not appealing.

I'll stick with ham, thank you, and pretty sweets with rabbit decorations.

Ham, kovbasa, kobanosa, cheese (some sort of baked ricotta thing my grandmother makes), baked pineapple (canned pineapple, breadcrumbs, eggs, sort of pudding-ish), cheese babka, challah, deviled eggs, regular hard boiled eggs, potato salad. I mainly eat the meats and pineapple

Everything sounds good. My menu is shaping up pretty good..I'm trying to stay traditional, but in quirky ways. Besides the foods I already mentioned (ham, hashbrown cheese casserole, pineapple casserole, gingerale salad)
I'm making the asparagus gruyere tart (Martha Stewart)
Matzo ball soup
Creamed spinach
biscuits
deviled eggs
lemon meringue pie
raspberry torte

Here is the recipe for Pineapple cheese ball

1 8oz cream cheese block
1 small box instant french vanilla pudding
1 small can pineapple tidbits drained

I mix/squish it all up with my hands and shape in a ball the roll it in a plate of chopped pecans.

Sorry it took my so long to post this but I was just checking this thread to get some final menu plans today.

I'm going to really cut loose for Easter. I've been dieting since before Christmas. Here's what I'm thinking:

Ham
Potato salad
Dressing (didn't even have dressing for Christmas. I'm good and ready for some)
Turnips and mustards
Candied yams
Corn bread
Mac n cheese

Peeps
Jelly beans
Chocolate bunny
That's breakfast. Then, dinner at a restaurant. Sorry, but I can't get the family to all agree on some traditional fare, so eating out works best for us.
