Rhubarb Muffins

Dear Friends:

Is your rhubarb up yet? There is no sign of mine, but then my backyard is very shady and the rhubarb was just planted last year. I am not sure if I will even get a crop this year, but Tammy has lots and I can always beg and bribe with goodies.

The recipe for May is Rhubarb Muffins. These are not really what I think of as muffins because they are not healthy and heavy; they are light and sweet and more like fruit cupcakes, minus the icing but with a nutty topping. Sort of like a small coffee cake.

They freeze well and I often bring one to work to combat the 4 o’clock hungers.

See you at Scoop N’ Weigh: The Candy Store for Grown, who are inspecting their gardens for the first sign of life!

P.S. With Easter over, it is time to get rid of the Halloween decorations, so it’s Pumpkin Time! All of the knitted ones, fabric ones and wooden ones are for sale.

It is difficult to think about autumn when spring is barely here, but I want to keep up the momentum of getting rid of stuff.

P.P.S. The other thing we are getting rid of is shelving. These were used on the walls to display stuff. Most are painted cream and are a variety of lengths. I find buying shelving at the hardware store always interesting, you either get the expensive melamine ones or the unpainted particle boards. And they are never the length you want. This is how I ended up with so many, the ones we had were always too short and we had to buy another one! And voila, there were loads of them and still not the right size!

P.P.P.S. We are selling something springish – flower pots of geraniums. Fake of course!


P.P.P.P.S. My bike record is 100%, i.e. 6 days of work and 6 days of riding. I find carrots sticks are not quite as eager to jump out of the bike basket as my cookies.

P.P.P.P.P.S. I thought you would like this. I went to the lake last weekend and am all excited about opening my trailer.

Why are the rules for wearing pajamas so much more relaxed at the lake? I have been in campgrounds, where in the evening and morning, there is a steady stream of pj wearers heading to the bathrooms. And not just children, but all ages in an interesting array of clothing often paired with flip flops or rubber boots. Another quirk of camping!
