I'm Baa-aack!

You didn't even know I was away, did you?

My aunt died over the winter, so we went to Victoria this week for the scattering of my aunt's ashes. I had a lovely time eating, catching up with relatives, and eating, and walking around the beautiful city of Victoria, and eating. Plus I seem to recall a whole bunch of eating. None of it pertinent to here, alas.

Even though I am back, you should expect posting to be sparse for the next week or so. I have a lot of work to catch up with, and I can tell already that there are going to be some major headaches.

On the plus side, my fridge is now thoroughly cleaned out, and ready to start a new season of food. We were out visiting some farmer friends today, and came back with a little asparagus and a whole lot of rhubarb.

If I had still be living at the house I would have heard your plane fly over when you passed over Kelowna:D

You must tell me where to find rhubarb - I've been going nuts trying to get some and to no avail. I had to resort to frozen - ugh..and double ugh.

Dear me, Giz; anyone who grows rhubarb is currently whacking it back with a machete and cursing. But as to buying it... well, I'd try farmer's markets. I have seen it at Zehr's (Loblaws) I'm pretty sure. I don't know what to say except keep looking! I know it's out there!

And Valli, I guess I missed something... I thought you were in Kelowna.
