Boys were asked to bring a pack of chicken wings and their favorite spices and sauces. We got one of those large propane turkey fryers. Remember to follow those safety instruction! Appetites were high as the oil was heating. Plan was to fry first spice up after.
After a couple great batches, one of the leaders pulled out a lapin. Boys got a quick lesson on skinning a pelt, where lucky rabbits feet come from, and how to cook "Lapin a La Cocotte". We didn't have time for the stew part.
Not everyone was up for chewing down some lapin, as we did just finish a huge mess of wings.

|Whoa, a bit hot still...||Just blow on it a bit..||OK, going down.||Oh yah, this is good|
|Bit crispy in spots.||Feel the heat!!||Gee thanks guys||Hmm, should I bury this for later? Might not be so spicy after a couple of days.|
