I've always been quite jealous of those who have their own rhubarb patches. Last night my friend Trudy gave me half of her's. How lovely is that? I thought I would repay this kind gesture by sharing my Rhubarb Oatmeal Muffin Recipe.

In a small bowl combine:
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 Free Range Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In a larger bowl combine:
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 1/4 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Cup Oats
1 Tbs Grated Orange Peel
1 Tsp Salt
Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Then add:
2 Cups chopped Rhubarb.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 Degrees F.
Enjoy. xxxb

Last Saturday

In an effort to get my spunk back and to contribute to the 'local' way of thinking I took part in the Farmer's Market last weekend. It was actually a beautiful day (it's been cold and raining otherwise) and it was great to be there with friends and share a laugh or two. I decided to treat it as sort of an incubator for all my ideas that might not be appropriate for other venues. With that in mind, and without overthinking it, I decided to stitch up some of the silk I've dyed over the past little while into skinny ties for your lovely neck or around your lovely waist. I also decided to try my hand at selling Rubarb Oatmeal Muffins from rubarb I picked myself. The day was a great success indeed and I'm already coming up with new ideas when the market starts up again in mid-July. Hope to see you there. :)

I'm still here. I've kinda lost my spunk but I'm not giving up....not yet anyway. I'm still working on that Tea Towel idea...and...I've been weaving.
