Easy Does It

Continuing with the rhubarb theme, I made a Jamie Oliver recipe last week with the end of the rhubarb from Green City.

I am a big fan of Jamie Oliver and his food. It's simple, it's easy and it's about eating well and enjoying life.

I cut the recipe in half and made 3 large servings knowing that the non-rhubarb-crazy set wouldn't really care. The fruit was lovely and rosy. Very tart. Very, very, tart.

Once sprinkled with an easy oat topping scented with ginger it was lovely draped with the Bird's Custard I tried for the first time.

Because it was so very simple, it's just a crisp (though J.O. calls it a crumble which sounds cool-er), I almost didn't share it. Then I reconsidered because it doesn't have to be fancy or include specialty ingredients we search high and low to find. I had everything in the pantry and it was a lovely way to finish a simple meal.

Who was it that said, "it's all about eating well and enjoying life"?

This looks so good. I've never prepared rhubarb and now I'm SO tempted. We'll be scouting some out at farmer's market this weekend.
