Podcasts I Have Loved…

A rhubarby weekend!

Rhubarb muffins. Some for breakfast and some for the freezer for summer entertaining. Although I didn’t go to Lanesboro, MN‘s Rhubarb Festival this weekend, I did make two rhubarb dishes this weekend!  Yesterday I made a Rhubarb Crumble for a beautiful summer evening “dinner on the deck” and this morning I made another batch of… Continue reading A rhubarby weekend!

Oh well… *************************************************** Just home and winding down from our “Over the Back Fence” radio show premiere!  Take Note!, our singing group, performed three songs, and the whole… Continue reading What a high!
