Sure, why not? I have had many jobs over the years. I could try being a kept man for a while. Just keep a steady supply of cold beer in the house, lots of food and I have no reason to go out....

I made big salads for each of us, then we had leftovers. DH had a cup of posole and I had Thai peanut noodles with grilled chicken and chard from the garden.

Last night we had a simple encore performance of Chicken Enchiladas with Spicy Refried Beans & yellow rice.

When I worked weekend nights I always missed out on this stuff.

Have you ever looked at the Rhubarb Compendium? It has loads of recipes and info.

Thanks for the link, Whiskadoodle (and for the compliment). I don't particularly like rhubarb desserts, so I was trying to find recipes to stretch my mind (and palette). Let's face it, most of us think of rhubarb as a dessert element, so I had to have some help figuring out how to use it "outside of the crust" and using ingredients I had on hand. The Chard also came from the garden (and there is more of that to come as well). The won tons were an experiment I tried last year--I refined the ingredients a bit (according to taste and what I had on hand). They were a hit with the "rhubarb pie" fan.

I had a chance to visit the link today and bookmarked it. There is a lot more rhubarb to come--we have 5 prolific plants at the farm.
