STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CRUMBLE
This years Father’s Day celebration ended with a wonderful rhubarb crumble. Liv had chocolate dipped strawberries; the dads might be fond of rhubarb but the chocoholic grandchild could not be overlooked. Even though there were a couple of tense moments at the start, I forgot to put on the one order of pesto pasta; however the conclusion went rather well. Pulling together the meal is getting harder for me; there was a lot on my mind at the time plus being an almost senior citizen well you know… I forgot to take pictures, so this one is of the repeat. Father’s Day was almost a month ago, but the crumble was repeatedly good and now I know I will live for another day and with a few more dishes to come even though Canada Day went by the wayside. Never the mind, here is a cool video to celebrate Canada, the land and its creatures. Have a Happy Day!
