MMMMMMM…It’s Rhubarb time.

Summertime  makes me think about

Rhubarb dishes.  One of my favorite recipies

Is this Rhubarb Dessert with a meringue top.

I have tried others but they don’t  seem to be

As moist so I go back to this recipe. I also

Freeze 4 cups in a quart bag so I’m ready

For a  dessert in the winter as well.
