Strawberry Rhubarb Everything!

My strawberries and rhubarb are both ripe and ready for baking! Nothing reminds me of home more than fresh strawberry-rhubarb pie. My grandmother made them ever summer and shed always have a warm slice topped with vanilla ice cream for me whenever Id visit. Yum! The flavor is hard to describe - its the perfect balance of tart and sweet. My mouth is watering!

After I harvest it, Maybe Trey will help me bake a few. If Jax wants to help me pick it Ill give her a few jars of strawberry-rhubarb jam to sell. People would be crazy not to buy it! Ill tell you how we make out next month.

Happy (late) Memorial Day!

I just wanted to take a little time this month to send a message to all the soldiers, both overseas and at home. THANK YOU!!! I really appreciate everything youve done for our country. Youve given so much to make this country safe, and it is because of men and women like you that I am able to enjoy all the wonderful things in my life. For all the soldiers abroad, I hope you come home soon safe and sound, and that you are welcomed and remembered as the heroes you are.

If anyone reading this wants to help our soldiers and veterans, please check out any of this list of great charities. Making a difference is not a one-way street. We can help them, too!
