Apologies for my distinct lack of recipe blogging this week…. with all the rain, soggy socks, flooding roads/ paths, soaking clothing, wet ducks, colds and hacking coughs… there hasn’t been a lot of anything going on at Casa de Ration. 😦
But never fear normal service has resumed… so without further interruption, here’s what we’ll be eating this week.
On the weekend I got hold of some rabbit and tried a rabbit pie. I’ll definitely be trying this again. The rabbit was cheap, lean and not a strong flavour at all (wild hare would be stronger). It was like…well… if chicken was naturally interesting. Raw or cooking it looks like chicken and so I fried some onions (added a pinch of sage, thyme and a chicken stock cube) and popped it in a pie. I served it with lots of lovely vibrantly coloured veg and potatoes… it was beautiful. Really simple. Next time I might get a little more adventurous and try a rabbit stew…lol.
Hopefully this week I’ll get hold of some again and take some photos of the meat before and after.
