“Are you sure you can be here by 5:00? It is 4:15 right now.”
“No problem, Dad. I’ll call Evelyn and tell her to be at your house at 5:00 too.”
Where did the time go? I thought I had all afternoon! How can I have the promised dessert (rhubarb crunch) ready in 15 minutes? It would take 40 min. just to bake it. Hum… I’m glad Esther had diced some fresh rhubarb and made granola before she left for Virginia. I will make rhubarb sauce! We can pour it over ice cream and sprinkle the granola on top!
Here is the rhubarb sauce recipe. It is also very good on plain yogurt, topped with granola.
Combine 3½ cups of diced rhubarb, 1 cup sugar, and 2 T. of orange juice. Let stand 10 minutes. Stir, cover, heat to simmer. Cook, stirring several times. Increase heat slightly as juice cooks out, until rhubarb is tender but not mushy. Serve warm or cold.
We were late for Chris’ program but not because of a late meal! We ate our supper on time!
