Rabbit Stew and Greenhouses

My husband shot a brace of snowshoe hares, so I've been racking my brain on how to cook them. The first time I made rabbit, it didn't appeal to me for some reason, so this time I've tossed them in the crockpot with carrots, celery, potatoes, garlic, beef broth, bacon, and spices. I also added cream of mushroom soup to it.

The last time I made rabbit, it wasn't in a crockpot, so the meat was a bit tougher than I cared for. Almost every rabbit recipe I've read says to use bacon, so bacon it is.  I suspect it's because the meat is so lean, it needs added fat, hence it tasted tough.

Big game season is pretty much over with the exception of wolves, and unless they open up my game unit for game damaged hunts for deer, I won't be shooting any more deer this season, which is a pity. The last two bucks were tasty -- some of the best deer I've had yet.

After watching Alaska, the Last Frontier, my husband and I have been talking about putting together a greenhouse to grow plants. That would make life a lot easier and hopefully keep the bugs out.
