I figured that since we haven't had this since last summer, AND these photos were horribly old, and not enough, that it was time to make this again, and take some new pictures. So here you have it!
We were actually in Publix over the weekend and I was buying some strawberries, well if you've never paid any attention the rhubarb just happens to be hanging out nearby. I guess this is because they go so wonderfully together. Anyway.
Zack said "you know what we haven't had in a while?", I say "what?" And just like that rhubarb gets tossed into the cart, along with the strawberries!
He is the one that usually makes this dish, but he was at work, and Kelsie and I really didn't want to wait on him. So she grabbed the bowls, heated up the oven, and we worked on this together.
It's really a very simple dish to make, and it doesn't take any time at all to toss it together and bake.

My husband is from Indiana and I am from Alabama. He was telling me one day a few summers ago about this vegetable called rhubarb that looked like celery but was red and you eat it in desserts.
I didn't want any part of that! I'm a picky eater anyways, and I wasn't sure if I could dig eating red celery stalks in a dessert. He tried to tell me what it tasted like and how his grandmother made pies with it.
Again, I was not interested. Well, it just so happened that within a few days to a week we were at Publix and low and behold, rhubarb was in the produce department. He got some, made a crumble and the rest is history.
We enjoy this every time we see fresh rhubarb in the grocery store now!
