It’s Easter this week! It’s a day of great religious significance that doesn’t, as the heathens among you might think, have anything to do with a chocolate zombie rabbit hatching from an egg after incubating for just three days. For many of us, it mostly means getting some time off, and stuffing our faces with chocolate. The easy food of choice for Tasty Tuesday, of course, would be chocolate, but instead, we’ve got coniglio alla cacciatora.

It’s a simple hunter’s stew, using simple ingredients from the earth, served with some delicious rabbit. Why rabbit? Well, mostly because I’m the sort of asshole who thinks it’s funny to cook rabbit for dinner and tell the kids it’s the easter bunny. Also, rabbit is delicious.

    Now I am hungry too soon for dinner. But on the plus side, I remember it’s Tuesday and not Monday today.

            “He couldn’t help remembering how much he’d wanted a puppy when he was a little boy. Mind you, they’d been starving – anything with meat on it would have done.” ~Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

            Commander Vimes said that.

    How big was Bone Thugs.
    Their first album which was actually an ep shy one song to make it an album, went onto become quadruple-platinum. That was their first album /ep.
    The second album went onto double-platinum and tha crossroads song, the single did triple-platinum. The crossroads song raised so fast to the top of the charts being among songs like, Beatle’s – Can’t Buy Me Love and Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You. Bone Thugs showed that they were a talent to be taken serious. bone thugs music talent and the messages they highlight through their music, has kept them relevant all these years.
