Long time no chat :)
I promise to write more - just have been busy with work and life - haven't had a chance to write!
But with that said - life is good! Zachary and I are getting used to our new surroundings and just enjoying the weather up here - with walks along the river after work or after dinner, playing tennis, gardening, and doing all that fun stuff summer is supposed to bring!
Speaking of gardening - I harvested our rhubarb and made a great strawberry rhubarb pie. For the crust I just bought a box of Pillsbury pie crust mix - just mix with water - it turned out great! And for the pie recipe I used THIS recipe. I tried to do something pretty simple as it was the first pie I have ever made. And I didn't have any cinnamon (I swear I thought I had - don't you just hate that when you find an ingredient you had but dont't?! It's the worst!), so I substituted with a pinch of pumpkin pie spice (aka 1/8 tsp).
My grandpa informed last week that he likes rhubarb pie - so I thought I would try this! As I got an email from him tonight - he thought it was delicious! So Yeah for my first pie! What do you think?? Zach wrapped it pretty good before I got a picture of it - so sorry for the foil around the background!
