I've been a busy lad. On saturday I dug out 4 frozen bunnies and took off the back legs, fillets and saddles. I removed all the silver skin I could and cubed the meat. Browned it in olive oil and sweated down a chopped onion and a couple of finely cubed smoked bacon. Added some dried leeks as well. Added 8 finely chopped sage leaves, and some pepper, and then made a bit of stock from 1 chicken cube and 1 veggie cube. Simmered it all for about 2 hours and made a roux with butter and plain flour to thicken what was left of the stock.
Me and the old girl decided that making full sized pies was just too over the top for just me and her so I purchased some individual foil dishes from Lakeland. They are 2" deep so hold an ample portion.
Anyways, made and cooked a dozen today, so that's 6 meals for me and her for minimal outlay, not bad for a bit of pest control eh!
Not tasted them yet or cut into them. When they cool I will cover 10 of them with foil and put 2 per bag and freeze them, and just leave 2 out for tonight.
