Summer is coming!

Growing up in Maine, rhubarb was a common treat paired with strawberries.  Here in the south, rhubarb is more of a commodity.  Ashley, Kaleigh and I found some inexpensive rhubarb at the farmers market and decided to make some strawberry rhubarb lemonade!

It turned out really well.  Tart and extra sweet.  We used about 12 lemons, a cup of strawberries and a stack of rhubarb, then loaded it up with sugar!  There is nothing like fresh lemonade.

We also had Kaleigh's favorite, roasted brussel sprouts and one of Ashley's favorites, spaghetti squash with pesto.  Both great dishes for the warming weather.  Summer is almost here.
