Previously, Steph posted a tiny hamster eating a tiny burrito.  Here is the sequel, a tiny hamster eating a tiny pizza.

Had fresh purple asparagus from a friend's garden this weekend. Olive oil, salt, pepper, in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, served with a hollandaise sauce. Yum!

It's rhubarb and asparagus that's coming on for me. I use the same recipe for my rhubarb crisp, Daniel. Yum.

Felaine, be sure and share the recipe for your "sweet & peppery sauce that sneaks up on you...."

Oh, Joan!  Thank you!  I wish I had the ingredients for a pot of chili, but I don't right now...just fresh veg for a mess if stir fry.  Maybe I'll think uo a song about that...

Beware of the Sentient Chili

by Chris Weber

Beware of the sentient Chili
that burbbles away on your stove
the peppers are silently plotting
with legumes, tomatos and cloves.

What a clever person! It evokes so many images and makes one smile all the way through.

I wish I knew the melody to "Sentient Chili," but I didn't spend enough time with the serious filksingers since I can't sing a note myself.  And I loaned all my songbooks to a guy who had a stroke, moved back to Illinois, and died of diabetic complications almost 30 years ago.  (and at the time I was busy trying to keep both my parents alive.)

There's a song about a "Bathtub Full of Lime Jell-O" from the same's sung to the tune of Gilbert & Sullivan's "Tit-Willow."  I can't find the lyrics on the net anywhere...

Felaine, love the Sentient Chili.   Maybe it's time to make up another pot.

Finally cooked up a rhubarb dessert.  I don't know what took me so long.  it's so easy.

The rhubarb mix:

8 cups of 1/2 inch slices of fresh rhubarb

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

The topping:

1 cup flour

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup rolled oats.

1/2 cup soft butter.

Preheat over to 375.

Spray 13 x 8 casserole dish with nonstick spray.

Combine rhubarb mix and spread into casserole dish.

Combine topping mix and sprinkle clumps over the rhubarb.

Bake 35 minutes until bubbling and hot in the center.

That's all. Easy.

The 2 of us ate it all in 2 days.
