Pie or Cobbler? both of course
Let's make cookies mama! hmmmmm, Scones???? weeeelllllll..... Pie! YES!
During quiet time yesterday felix & I wandered arcross the street to the gardens to raid a friends Rhubarb patch that was going to seed ( I got permission ;). Felix wanted to bake something and we settled on Rhubarb Pie, one of my all time favorite desserts. It had been a while since just he & I cooked together. Rather than 4 little hands knocking, moving, and fighting over tasks, felix got to do all of them. It was so calm, while I had to hustle to prep he just chattered away, telling stories of his dreams, friends or telling jokes. Oh, the 4 year old. In the middle of our sweet time Todd comes in and starts lobbying for rhubarb cobbler not rhubarb pie. what the?!@#$ I had a plan. So felix decided on both, we'd make cobbler for desert and pie filling for the freezer. how smart.
I'm feeling like my little blog is becoming all cooking latley, and while I suppose it is true I'm really missing being in my studio. Is it unrealistic to think I can do it all??? when there are obviously no more naps?
probably not, but we still can have rhubarb pie this winter and be very very thankful.
