Hey there YOU, you eat some Rabbit!
I tell you, Sam, that's a nasty habit
I Am Sam.
C'mon now, lets get some honey
For a dish of sweet glazed bunny.
That Sam-I-Am! That Sam-I-Am!
I do not like that Sam-I-Am
I will not eat anything bunny,
I tell you, Sam, it's just not funny.
How about some rabbit stew?
I'll make a pot, just for you?
Not stew, not bunny, I told you Sam,
I cannot eat it, Sam-I-Am.
Then I'll bake a rabbit pie,
That's a dish you won't deny?
Deny I will, and deny I can,
I will not taste it Sam-I-Am.
Well, here's a dish, you'll love, I bet.
Share with me some rabbit rillette.
No, Sam-I-Am, I will not share,
You may not, but I do care.
Then let me prepare, for you, lapin
That sounds like a better plan.
Sam, I Am, I can translate,
Please no lapin on my plate.
Sam I am, just leave me be
Rabbit's not the dish for me.
Not in a stew, not with you,
Not in a pie, Not for a guy,
Not in rillette, No, not yet,
Not in a pan, no lapin,
No, no, no, it's just not funny
I told you Sam, I don't eat bunny!
How about I change the name?
And we'll just start this thing again.
If I say Rarebit, will you bite?
I think you will, I think you might?
I know you are so hard to please,
But try this toasted, bubbling cheese,
Its mixed with egg and glug of Ale,
How could such ingredients fail?
English Mustard, onion, sage,
Rarebit on toast is all the rage,
I know you'll like it if you try,
Try the Rarebit before you die.
Say! It's true I like the Rarebit.
I'd even say I like it a fair bit.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Sam!
Thank you, kindly, Sam-I-Am.
This Welsh Rarebit, a mixture of cheese, egg, mustard and Ale, was made using a recipe from Delia Smith who prefers to call it Welsh Rabbit. Read more here about the Welsh Rabbit v Rarebit debate. (Thanks Amy, for the link). The post was written for Jeanne and Anthony's EOMEOTE for August 2005, which required the post be written in Dr Seuss style. Most of the ingredients used were local. Eatwell Farm's eggs and sage, onions from Heirloom Organics, Three Sister's Farmstead Serenita cheese and Acme Pain au Levain.
