I stopped in at Wayland's Meat this afternoon and scored 2 fresh meaty rabbits just as Sylvia was getting ready to wrap them. Wayland told me that some customers object to selling rabbit - the cute little bunny factor. But me? I'll grab any opportunity to braise them with wine, mustard, garlic, carrots and prunes. If you move fast, there might still be one or two left.
