Rhubarb Pie

One of the first pies I ever baked was a rhubarb pie. I was all of 19 years old living in my uncle's farmhouse with my cousin Michelle. There was a rhubarb patch out by the shed and that spring I decided to make my first pie ever. I even made the crust from scratch! My nanny thought it was the best pie she had ever eaten!

Rhubarb continues to be a favorite in my family. As a matter of fact, that is what Justin requested for his birthday "dessert" from me!

Last evening, after looking through Justin & Kristina's wedding photos, we all went to the kitchen to have some of Justin's birthday pie. That is Justin up above enjoying his pie!

After they were done eating pie, Justin & Chris were doing their "crazy faces" at each other, and I caught them in perfect action! Check them out below! LOL, my goodness, do I ever love those kids!

Thank you to everyone who left Justin a happy birthday message. He does read the blog (as does Chris!). And I am sure he read every well wish!
