I was on unfamiliar ground...territory unknown. Chris has one absolute favorite combo...strawberry rhubarb, and that is one combination i have never, ever tackled before. But i love my husband...i want to make him happy, so i promised i would give it a go. Not having a recipe to follow did not help but i figured i could improvise a little. I referenced my friend Mary's recent strawberry rhubarb crisp...a recipe by emeril and my mom's apple crisp topping.With all those combined I managed a pretty fantastic result if i do say so myself. We have been wandering past it all day long(i made it about 10 this morning) taking a spoonful and savoring every bit of it. There are more spoons in tonights load of dishes than anything else.
