    Jeremy,
    There's no way that you're a union plasterer,when you can fix a gourmet meal like that. You made me think back to my youth when I used to hunt and kill alot of rabbits and my mother would fry them up and make that rabbit milk gravy and mashed potatoes like you made. I don't have my mother any longer,or the beagle hound that used to round up all of those rabbits, so it's been a long time since I've had any fried rabbit and milk gravy. My wife doesn't like wild game so I don't even hunt anymore. When I seen this thread,I just had to reminisce a little bit. Just looking at that beautiful plate that you fixed made my mouth water.
    Thanks for the memories.
    Glenn

    Wild rabbit is pretty good, but the domestic rabbits that we raise are much better than the wild ones. It is as good or better than fried chicken and just as tender too. :confused2:

    Looks good Jer., Do the same thing once in a while, usually I just brown my rabbit or squirrel, or turtle etc. and then make the gravy like you are doing, then lay'm in the roaster pan pour the gravy all over and slow roast for an hour or so, about 15 minutes before time to chow, will add drop biscuits to the top of meat and gravy and let them cook until golden, ahhhhh. You know :wink: Matter O'fact, have a bag of turtle in the fridge for tomorrows dinner!!!!! :big_smile:

    Never really gave much thought to the folks that "don't" like game, Grew up on it and its just always been a way of life, wife loves it all, my little one would rather eat deer than beef any day..... Guess I just don't really personally know anyone that doesn't like to eat it..... And fish, wow, look out around here, my 8 year old acts like she is starv'n to death when the gills or crappie hit the table...lol.

    I'm definitely a city slicker compared to you guys. I've had rabbit before, but never squirrel. My old man trapped over 2 dozen squirrels this year. They were stealing his tomatoes, so he trapped them and dumped them out in the country. Maybe next year he will save some for me.

    My son and I raise rabbits too. We hunt and eat about any creature that has a season. We hunt squirrel, rabbits, deer, coons, turkeys, quail, dove, ducks, geese, we also eat everything we harvest. My son has allergic reactions to chicken so he has never been able to eat it. I have always been partial to domestic rabbits. It is probably one of my favorite foods. But wild game is delicious too. Oh yeah....we tear up some fresh fish too....yum-yum. Sometimes I will take a rabbit and boil it off the bone. Pull it into a bowl and add my favorite bar-b-que sauces and have some delicious sandwiches. Wow I'm gonna have to go have a bite.:big_smile:
