Our pet rabbit just died yesterday, maybe we should eat him. He was six years old, and although we took him to the vet and tried to save him, it was his time. We always joked about eating him, he was a BIG house bunny. As big as our cats. He hopped freely all around my dd's room. As gentle as a lamb. And no, we don't eat lamb.

Everyone's tastes are different. Mine just don't include liking bunnies or lambs. Or calves (veal) housed alone in a pitch-black outhouse, alone, for weeks until slaughter.

Now that said, we'll be having a tasty pig on Easter, so refer to my previous statement, everyone's tastes are different. We don't usually do an Easter dinner, but MIL died recently so we're having FIL over. We're having a Harrington's spiral ham, homemade cheddar scalloped potatoes, Trader Joe's corn, garlic bread, and a made-from-scratch chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. The cake is kind of odd, but we're fussy about desserts, liking mostly chocolate. The only pie my family will eat is pecan and we do that at Thanksgiving. I haven't made a chocolate cake in a long time, I like Hershey's cocoa recipe.

British people don't seem to celebrate Easter that much apart from the orgy of Chocolate eggs and I think a "traditional" English dish for Easter would be a baked and glazed Ham or a joint of Beef. Something on those lines anyway.
I'm quite puzzled by all this, I wasn't aware of any easter traditions for meals at all, yet there's a definite ham trend going on on this thread! And asparagus is coming up a lot too. Is my family the only one who doesn't know about this??!

Mind you, my parents are usually too busy with church stuff to bother with anything different for lunch! Most of my easter weekends as a child were usually spent with a small group of volunteers bunching up flowers to hand out to all the ladies in the church. How sweet.

Oh this is a food thread, sorry. Flowers.....to eat! Yes, we eat flowers at easter.... er.....

I'm off to buy a ham and catch up with the rest of the world.

My son is a hunter, so he's dragged home some odd things, but no rabbits yet. I wouldn't mind trying it though.
Not quite, hares are different animals - they've got longer ears. They're quite rare these days in the UK so I hope people don't eat them much. Whereas rabbits are so common they have to be culled near farm land to keep the population down or they decimate crops. It makes complete sense to eat them - less waste! When I leave here to get my car from the car park I'll more than likely see a few scuttling back into the hedge.

For Easter dinner we are having spiral baked honey ham, hash brown casserole, deviled eggs, baked beans, feta cheese/craisins/spinach salad with homemade dressing, yeast rolls, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting; all homemade. My son has called twice this week from college to check the menu, LOL.

By the way, for breakfast we are going to have a sausage-egg breakfast casserole, fresh scones and strawberries in sugar.

Default Why rabbit is not a popular meat



1. It's a RODENT. Rats are rodents, too.

2. Children grow up with sweet little bunny tales and, after that, the thought of butchering one is rather appalling.

3. It's a RODENT!

Breadsticks wrapped w/prosciutto, asparagus wrapped with prosciutto.

My s-i-l just said she had the Angel Lush cake and it was delicious. Also trifle made by layering pound cake, strawberries, pudding, whipped cream.
