Here comes peter cotton tail……. Well not anymore

My husband, his brother Josh and my 2 oldest children Sariya 6 and Joshua 4 decided to go hunting for rabbits and succeeded.They caught two adults rabbits and a baby one. I know sad right!? I awwwwwed to, its ok go ahead and let it out. They were all super excited about their uncle josh actually hitting and killing these rabbits and couldn't wait to cook them and eat them!! Now you have to understand we are city people through and through. I have never EVER eaten a rabbit….. Nor have I EVER wanted to but when you hang out with country folk and you start doing things like buying 100 chickens to raise and slaughter you eventually have to tell your brain that maybe these thing are ok to do……. maybe.

These would be the 3 wascally wabbits!

This would be the man who got um!

And also who skinned them.

And who may have enjoyed this just a little to much. LOL!

The most surprising to me was my little princess Sariya had no problem watching uncle josh skin these things and she was even more excited to eat some! Oh goodness what am I going to do with these children, I believe they are def going to be more on the country side. 

We then stuffed the rabbit with some apples, onions, rosemary, lemon, and cilantro and baked it in the oven for 45 mins or so….. It wasnt long enough so we had undercooked rabbit and never got the chance to taste it but will try again another time.


  1. A little milk , onion and rabbit in the crockpot for a while... but hey at least you tried.... I am not a fan of wild rabbit but its been a long time since I have tried it....

  2. Oh and my kids barely blink at "processing". They were about your kids age when they started being exposed to more and its a way of life that is necessary and so they deal well with it!

  3. I cant wait to see how my kids react to it but like anything else they will adapt to it.
