Rhubarb Pie and Other Sins

I have made a lot of rhubarb pies this summer. It was a great year for rhubarb. I have to admit rhubarb is one of my weaknesses.  Sometimes I make it with strawberries, but most often I make it without. I also made it with raspberries this year, but it just isn't the same. Rhubarb, alone, is what my family likes best. So that is what I do most often.

This morning I ate 3 pieces of rhubarb pie for breakfast! Yikes!  What was I thinking??  It just tasted so good. I love rhubarb pie, I think it is my very favorite pie. I think it even beats out huckleberry!  It hasn't always been my favorite, but has always been one of my favorites. But for now, it is my favorite. Wow! Maybe it will just be for a season that I like it best - maybe my tastes will change, maybe I will get tired of it.  Maybe I will stop to think how many calories are in it. Not so far!

You know what else?  I love mine best! It is my grandma/mom's recipe, I think. That makes me happy. This will be my last one for awhile...I can't say "no" to it, if I make it.
