LET THEM EAT CAKE – LOU’S RHUBARB CAKE!


Musical pairing – Lucky by Jason Mraz

As a child, I remember having rhubarb plants in my backyard and my mother making stewed rhubarb – I L-O-V-E-D it; but I also remember mother saying that the leaves were toxic and gave me direct orders that I wasn’t to eat them . . . ‘hmmm’ . . . my defiant 8-year-old mind asked, ‘Is that really true or is she just saying that so I won’t eat it all raw?  Do I tempt fate, try it and see what happens?  What would happen if I only ate a teeny-weeny little bite – would I die and more importantly, would they ever find my body?’ (I was a bit dramatic).  In the end, I decided to obey – a rarity for those of you who know me well . . .  let’s just say that I have never been one to conform . . .
