Its just stunning to me that people eat rabbits. I know its an English and Scottish tradition, but it just baffles me that someone could eat one. Sounds silly to you english folks, I know.

Glazed ham with pineapple slices, cherries and whole cloves, green beans with garlic and sesame seeds, broccoli salad, and warm rolls. My mom is providing dessert, which I believe will be carrot cake or boston creme pie.

Having husband's parents and my parents. There will be 7 total.

Moose,
Would a typical market in England sell rabbit, or would you go to a specialty market?
What is the difference between hare and rabbit?

I can't really understand the squeemishness of posters either. A rabbit is no cuter than a cow or a lamb.

Are you Mexican? I wonder what foods would be traditional for Easter in Mexico, since it's probably a huge holiday there?

Not sure what hubby and I will be having. With family not being here we usually do something non traditional. I was thinking of making bbq baby back ribs.

I don't think it has so much to do with the cuteness factor as it does have to do with it's a domesticated pet! Kinda like eating Rover the dog or Fluffy the kitty!
