I should call this the "disappearing meal trick," because that's how good our Rabbit Red Beans and Rice was.
Cranky is mostly responsible for the dish, made from sauteed slices of Devil's Gulch rabbit sausage plus red beans from Full Belly Farms. There is no recipe, because he was really improvising. For instance, we had no bell peppers, but he added a small amount of green tomatoes scavenged from the freezer, toward the end of cooking. I tinkered slightly with the salt level, but I'm proudest of my addition of ground red chile powder, made from peppers I grew last summer.
Yes, my contribution to the overall project was admittedly skimpy, so Cranky won art-directing honors again. He wanted the picture shot from overhead. And he preferred the white plate, which, I warned him, would disappear.
