If you want to experience real American food you have to be asked to a really good country cooks house. That is really the only place good ol' American cooking can be found anymore on a regular basis.
Yesterday I was feeling in need of some comfort and I wanted to use up some more rhubarb. As I have never had rhubarb pie I decided to make a strawberry rhubarb and a plain rhubarb just to see the difference
Both were very good. Rhubarb has an interesting taste that's for sure. I liked it though, and so did everyone else. The recipe for the crust is from my favorite pie cookbook "Farm Journals Pie Cookbook". And the pies were from my Old Fashioned Baking cookbook.
OK I love roasting chickens. They are the ultimate comfort food for me, and today I will be making chicken pot pie with the left over meat, and tomorrow chicken soup with the racks of chicken. The chickens were on sale so I get three meals for 6 people for less than $10.00. To go with dinner I made homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and then we had fruit.
I also made more Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. Look at the color! It is a lovely bright clear strawberry shade.
