As I entered our walk in refrigerator this morning to stow away my lunch (leftover lentil soup with chicory, for those who are interested). I was met with the most glorious site.
We just received our first box of farm fresh rhubarb. This makes me happy for two reasons. First, it has restored my hope that spring has not abandoned us. Second, look at how gosh darn pretty it is! Those ruby red stalks, with the perfect little leafy fringe wrapped in paper that is coincidentally (or not)< One Girl Cookies aqua blue. I couldn't have styled this better.
You may wonder what sort of delicious treat we will transform this rhubarb into. Strawberry rhubarb hand pies, anyone? Oh yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. A little fruit filled pie that you can hold in your hand and savor as you walk through the lovely streets of Cobble Hill or Dumbo. Your mind may take you to the place of the golden arches and their famous apple pie. Quite similar, yet a world away. I am pretty sure that clown is not filling his hand pies with the likes of rhubarb. Available this weekend at both OGC locations.
