He is not much of a meat eater so he gave me one of the rabbits. I was initially very excited about making something delicious with it and had planned to cook the rabbit the evening I got it.
However, upon seeing the skinned carcass, I got a bit squeamish and popped it into the freezer, where it has sat...until now.
Today, I got up early, found a recipe with a nice picture (see below) and went to Woollies to buy the ingredients.
I immediately started to retch.
I'm such a wuss. It's weird. I have no problem chopping up whole chickens or ducks but I think the rabbit just looks too mammalian. I guess I am too accustomed to getting my meat from the supermarket, already processed and looking less like whole animals.
Anyhow, the contorted rabbit carcass is sitting in the sink. I'm going to have to chop it up and cook it – whether I like it or not.
