Home Again

Whenever I spend a large block of time away from home, I want to dig back in when I do get home and do lots of homey things. A couple of weeks ago, my son mentioned rhubarb pie.
This homecoming, my activity of choice was making rhubarb pie. I love rhubarb. It's one of my spring rituals. Rhubarb pie and crisp.
Finally, this year, the rhubarb growing in the backyard produced enough do make something.
I love to make pies. I made two. One with a regular crust and one with a meringue top. The contrast between the tanginess of the rhubarb and the silkiness of the meringue is lovely.
Yum! Come over and well have pie and tea together.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for my husband, Gerry. He is home and recovery is fantastic. We will have to wait awhile to know how well the nerve graft grows. God knows, and he is the great healer. His way is perfect. Gerry is loving being back home and enjoying pie.

I love rhubarb pie. We have a garden/farm/florist shop in the area that also makes fantastic pies. They make a strawberry rhubarb pie that I just love. Ah, rhubarb!

Oh I miss my old rhubard plants - lucky you! I hope that your husband is continuing on the mend, and I hope he can partake in the pie - that would help the soul, yes?

Mmmmm--rhubarb pie! It looks fantastic! I remember back in the day--my Dad always smooozing me into making him rhubarb sauce, he loved it over homemade ice cream! Haven't had it in years! I just might have to see if I can find me a nice patch of rhubarb and see if I can hunt down the old recipe......

I was sorry to read about your husband losing the nerves in part of his face like that. I hope his surgery does the trick--am sending up prayers for him and you!

Smiles, Karen
