Choose Your Own Adventure Recipes

Hooray hooray!! The first Farmer's Market of the year for us in Brampton was yesterday. 


It was SO wonderful to stroll down the street surrounded by all this beauty & bounty. I love me my food; so forgive me if I wax poetic about it.
It also made me realize how dang fortunate we are to live where we do. Our soil, our land, our climate. (Yeah; even the -40C winters) But that's another topic for another day.


Now, I love my backyard.



 Except it's kinda small. And veryyyyyy shady. Which limits what will grow well.




Rhubarb, however grows insanely well. And provides a fun hidey-spot for Mikie. 


(Don't tell him we can see him. He thinks he's super secret.)

There's a lot you can do with rhubarb. Like, Pie. And...pie. And did I mention...pie?!?!?

Now yes of course I know there's more like cakes, and tartlets and my personal fav "Rhubarb Stew"
(Blogged about HERE) but this year when I saw them glorious strawberries...I knew it was gonna be PIE.


     


There is a door in front of you on the right. It is a nondescript door; however from behind it comes a strange high-pitched buzzing noise......

On your right, there is a cobwebby hallway, at the end of which are stairs that look old and rickety......
