About a week later, I got some mail with my sister in law's return address in the corner. I figured it was a note from her since I had ordered some flowers from all of us for a family event. I laughed out loud for a good 5 minutes when I opened it. My brother in law saw the silly post and sent me this note and $1.
Well, Dave and I have been spending lots of time in the yard, starting to get things buttoned up for the winter. After my hand surgery I won't be very helpful for a while, then it is moose season and then it is my travel season and snow can come any day now. One of the things we did was pull all the rhubarb.
I have a giant rhubarb plant that produces way more than I can use. I take it to work, I give it to friends, I freeze more than I'll use all winter. I took a big batch into work along with this sugar-free rhubarb crumble. I figured if something delicious was next to the giant basket, more people would be inspired to take some.
I have enough in my freezer to make this a dozen times this winter, it was so good, I'm wondering if I have enough.
