Christmas Eve and Bob will get to come home early. We've been invited to a friend's, but have decided to stay home and spend the day w/ each other. I am making one of our favorite dishes ever, Hasenpfeffer. We used to eat this in PA w/ our dear Friends Jann and Henry. Here is what else is "cookin"!:
1HASENPFEFFER>RABBIT MAIRINATED FOR 4 DAYS IN A VINEGAR AND PICKLING SPICE BRINE>THEN IT IS BROWNED AND BAKED UNTIL "Golden Brown And Delicious"
2.GERMAN BREAD DUMPLINGS>BREAD CUBES, BREAD CRUMBS, EGG, ONION, MILK SHAPED INTO BALLS AND BOILED 'TIL THEY FLOAT
3.GRAVY.MADE BY STRAINING AND BOILING THE REMAINING MARINADE AND THICKENING. IT HAS A SWEET SOUR TASTE.(MY FAVORITE PART OF THE MEAL)
4.SAUTEED SPINACH W/ BACON i AM NOT A BACON FAN SO THERE WILL BE JUST ENOUGH TO FLAVOR THE SPINACH SLIGHTLY
6.ROMAINE SALAD W/ AVOCADO AND TOMATOES W/ HOMEMADE VINAEGRETTE
