The Art of Cooking

As with most artists, we have many creative hats we like to wear. One of mine is cooking. Mom used to make THE BEST Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie when we lived in Wallowa Valley before. Well, I went to the local fruit stand the other day and saw some long ruby red stalks of Rhubarb, so I picked some up. We also bought some Strawberries at Safeway so I searched the net and found a recipe and Whalaa! We have pie!
Let me tell you, the crust is a butter and canola oil crust so it is flaky and tender, one of my best yet, and the filling is to die for! So this was a huge success and now I will go to sleep with a full tummy, dreaming of pie for breakfast......well okay, I won't really have pie for breakfast, I would probably fall asleep in church, but I can look forward to pie for dessert after dinner. Then a long walk to enjoy the fresh pine scented breezes and the towering snow capped mountains.
The pie recipe will be on my Simply Sheryl's Blog if you're interested. Got some fun Halloween paintings planned for Monday so stop back by!

Come on over Linda! There's plenty and we can chat and paint and have a blast! I love that dinnerware pattern. When I discovered that Royal China had created this pattern, and in red, I was hooked! Autumn and my fav color, what more could I ask for!
Mo, I have to admit that it took mom a bit to talk us into trying the pie as well, but when we did, well at least me, I was so glad I did. Thanks for stopping by ladies!
