Oh, Hello my Long Lost Love!

Last night I found myself purchasing some goods for dinner at the local grocery store and since I was having such a fried fatty dinner I thought to myself- maybe they have some small frozen pie shells that I can throw together with some berries and make dinner a huge debauchery. I head on over to the frozen berry + pie area and as I'm skimming through the frozen blueberries, peaches, and strawberries... my eyes fall upon the illusive RHUBARB. Holy shit.

Embarrassing note: I literally gasped when I saw the damn thing. I wonder if anyone saw me? And if they did.. I wonder if they thought I was crazy for getting so damn excited over a frozen veg.

So I bought it. Yea I bought it. Delicious, illusive, beautiful, frozen, cold RHUBAARRBBB! :D
I gotta tell you, every Jamie Oliver clip flashed before my very eyes. The "Rhubarb" chapter of my 'Jamie at home' book shall be used! USED AND ABUSED! I will bring delectable rhubarb to all the cubans down here in Miami who dont even know what the stuff is.

Damn.. after all of this.. I really hope I like the taste of it. O_O

So I think to start off, Im going to try this recipe. I choose this over the classic Jamie Oliver one because it uses a crumble topping instead of the traditional pie crust top. Its just easier to make and less headache for clean up at Jon's house.

Do you have any Rhubarb recipes you'd like to share? Please let me know.... Im feeling adventurous.
