Today I decided to cook rabbit two different ways, the legs marinated in olive oil with thyme and the rest of rabbit I marinated in mustard and cooked with onions, bacon and mushrooms. In our family everybody likes rabbit, especially my kids. However, my daughter always asks before cooking “I hope it is not the rabbit from our garden?” No, don’t worry, I bought the rabbit in a store 🙂
Both recipes were delicious, especially the legs. When the kids ate everything and asked for more, you know it turned out perfect. Too bad that the rabbit is small 🙂
