Ah Snip is back.

Tonight I'm working so I'm leaving a big container of veggies and dip, and one of cut up fruit. There are pizzas in the freezer, or pork chops, sea bass, chicken breasts or steak for them to decide on. I've done my bit.

As for me, well, hummus and pita or chips is going to be my big meal of the day. I'm going to sample both the fruit and veggie platters too!

Quasi repeat from yesterday-- leftover scalloped taters, saurkraut. I cut off a new hunk of kielbasa and a new pitcher of ice tea. It's like someone else did all my planning.

You have a pretty decent repertoire of rhubarb recipes and a good imagination how to use. I have one very productive plant. Thatís ok. Iím the only one in my family who eats rhubarb.
Have you ever looked at the Rhubarb Compendium? It has loads of recipes and info.

The first local asparagus of the season steamed with milk, butter and plenty of pepper.

The peanut butter cookies are gone!

Nice site, WD! Thanks!

DH and I both had business lunches today, and are so not hungry yet. We have leftovers to nibble on later.

Two salisbury steaks (16 oz each), mushroom & onion gravy, and steamed buttered asparagus. Asparagus cost $4 per pound!

ya know, even though asparagus can be so tender and lovable in the moment, at four dollars per pound, i'll more likely cook up a pot of fresh green beans, or summer squash instead...or peas or corn or lima beans, or baby carrots, or.....

That gets rid of the rhubarb harvest for this week. I'll try and take a pic or two.
The rhubarb ice cream is a definite "OMG, is this good" ice cream. This time, I made the won tons without cheese, added walnuts, more garlic, left out the ginger and vodka, added a habernaro pepper for heat and the smoky paprika. Definitely not the way one usually eats rhubarb--also very good. Everything was good.
