Oh - just the rabbit in your sauce - wonderful! There was a place in Seattle - Cafe Juanita that served rabbit and it was absolutely wonderful. This reminds of that recipe. Thanks for the wonderful post!valinkenmore in Malott loved it
I just have to say it... typically, I do everything I can to avoid getting a hare in my food.
I hope you'll forgive me -- it just had to happen; if I don't ever hear from you again, I'll understand.
It really is a delicious loo...moreshine in Rainier loved it
