My artist in residence completed another painting today, I cleaned house and baked rhubarb bread. Then cabin fever struck and we were off—first to deliver the rhubarb bread to a friend here in our little valley who has been fighting breast cancer this winter—damn cancer!! She looks great and is doing well!
Here’s the recipe for the rhubarb bread—I’m not a fan of rhubarb pie and was tired of my rhubarb crisp recipe. This recipe popped up on my Facebook feed and it’s a keeper! It calls for buttermilk which I never have but I do have this: and it works in any recipe I’ve tried which calls for buttermilk. You just add the required powder and then water. The stuff has to be refrigerated after opening which takes up space in my RV refrigerator but I cope!
Back home we retrieved Emmi as we most certainly couldn’t go to Nat’s without Emmi! We spent the afternoon visiting with Nat listening to stories—Big Timber stories and World War II stories. After a quick stop for ice cream and groceries we were back up the Boulder where the wind is howling. Rain/snow in the forecast for the next few days—ugh!
