It's a nice warm day today! So I'm fixing a crock pot recipe. Who wants to spend money heating up an already warm home?
I'm thankful though, that DH was able to get all of the critter watering systems rigged up for winter. There were a few days when I had to crack the ice in the water buckets before he had the chance to do it (I've had frostbite a couple of times in the past so he knows how much it means to me to be warm and dry!) He also set up some heated water bottles for the rabbits, which means we are wintering them instead of buying new stock in the spring. That would be great (really!) if they were proving to be good breeders, but so far-zilch, zero, nada. They had since early spring to go through ALL of the excuses-too young, too stressed, too hot, bad hair day.....The last breed date was November 1 so if we don't have a kindling soon, we might be searching for new stock anyway. It's tough to spend money on feed with no return!
I have one rabbit left in the freezer from the last bunch so today I will make Rabbit Stew. Since it was an older rabbit, the best way to cook it is SLOWLY! This is a new-to-me dish so I'm learning as I go. I don't have exact measurements and times-but it turns out yummy so give it a try!
