Dinner on the deck

Dinner on the deck

This was last Saturday’s dinner. Salad, smoked chicken wings, creamy potato salad made with smoked potatoes, grilled asparagus – the first of the season! – and a beer. Dessert – courtesy of my girlfriend, who also happens to be my wife – rhubarb custard pie featuring home made crust and our own rhubarb.

Our rhubarb plant, now pretty much done producing for the year. We enjoyed rhubarb pie, rhubarb-strawberry pie, rhubarb muffins, a rhubarb custard thing, rhubarb nectar. I had never had rhubarb before moving to Canada. It’s been an acquired taste, first time I had it was in my mother-in-law’s rhubarb pie. It was . . . different. Having acquired the taste I do like it!
