Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberries are plentiful and the farmers market is filled with them.  They are so delicious right now.  They are sweet + juicy and they are just perfect.  I have never really worked with rhubarb, but it jumped out at me.  And then I thought, rhubarb + strawberries, after all, it is almost summer.



Summer...so looking forward to summer.  Not looking forward to it in the same way that my kids are.  I am looking forward to the lack of structure; no homework, grilling and eat outside, swimming, and long days filled with picnics at the beach, bike rides to the ice cream store and lazy mornings.


This past weekend was the official kick-off to summer.  We packed a lot into the 4 day weekend; the beach, bike riding, bbq's with family and friends and plenty of eating.  Summer is going to be a lot more of this plus lots more!
