Rabbit Track Stew

Down South when a husband is sent out hunting and doesn't get
anything (usually because he got drunk instead of hunting) he
will come home and ask his wife if she can make dinner with
rabbit tracks because that's all he could catch. Also,
rabbit track stew is what people eat when times are tough
and there's not enough food.
