a Taste of Summer


I don't think there is anything here in Minnesota quite as nice as the first rhubarb of summer.
My mom has rhubarb, but her patch is dying out as the trees are shading it too much. 
My neighbor has some.
My carpool buddy has some. 
Thankfully, people also like to SHARE the first rhubarb of summer.

I brought it home on Friday and hemmed and hawed over just what I would do with this delicious bounty. 
You see, the people in my house are "MEH" rhubarb - I can take it or leave it.
As a kid I could not WAIT for the rhubarb.

I mean....it is really just a vehicle for sugar.

So on Father's Day - I made Rhubarb Dream Bars.
It called for powdered sugar AND regular sugar.
Recipe here.

And the people said, "YUM!"

Love rhubarb, and love the comment that your family is meh rhubarb, which is probably how my family would describe it too! I'm gonna go for the recipe! Visiting from Mama Kat's! I'm at www.playdatesonfridays.com.

oooh, I love rubarb! My parents were from Minnesota and naturally raised it in Indiana. But I live in Florida, where rubard doesn't like it because it isn't cold enough over winter. :(

Wow, I can't even remember the last time I had any rhubarb!

My Mom used to grow rhubarb and made pies with it, but I have never actually tasted it!
