In which there’s thankful, humble pie

Yesterday’s post had me thinking: I do write about things that make me happy.

Clear skies, being with friends, cooking, listening to good music and experiencing new things. These make me joyful.

Mix flour and sugar together, sprinkle some on the crust.

Shopping at the farmer’s market, runs in the sunshine, my co-ressies, traveling and of course my dear Jeff. All these things make me glow.

Heap your rhubarb on and cover with remaining sugar and flour.

I am reminded: “A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are.”

Place on baking sheet. Remember that you forgot to add butter. Take off the top crust pieces one by one. Add butter. Put the crust pieces back on one by one.

So very blessed and humbled to know so many good and cherishable things to write about.

Enjoy with whipped or ice cream.

I didn’t have enough rhubarb for this easy recipe, but made do with cutting down the recipe and throwing it into our casual soup bowls. One mini-pie for tonight, one for tomorrow!
