Rhubarb Cobbler

this weekend i received not one, but two, rhubarb care packages.
let me just say the fact that i don't have my own garden is made okay by having family and friends that supply me with fresh produce from theirs.

rhubarb is probably one of my favourites, i know a lot of people don't share this view, but for me it's top notch and i'll stick up to any naysayers (with a giant stalk of rhubarb)

i love the tartness.

i love the fact that you need to be generous with sugar.

i love that it always produces a delicious dessert.  always. 

i love that the two of us are destined to be friends forever. 

i love that i still have a second care package that needs to be used.
