Rhubarb Crunch

Let me tell you what just happened.... (my being a novice at this whole "blog" thing).
I got a "comment back" from "Southern Plate" lady. (I'm sorry, I do not know her name right now. I'm sure there is a way for me to find out, but that will have to wait until I get help from Sadie )
Anyway....if any of you want to visit her food blog, it's on my blog list, just click on it and it'll take you there.
(omg...that's a song lyric....I'll take you there. What is it from? )
Back to "Southern Plate"! She made some delicious "crock pot chicken and dressing" yesterday.... which I, of course, told Rich we were having in a day or two. It looked delish!! And as you all know, even tho I'm from Nevada and the Pacific Northwest, I LOVE all things Southern. Food, customs, slow-talking men. LOL.
It saddens me that Nevada doesn't really have a "taste", a flair--such as Southern Cooking or Tex-Mex or, well... ALL THE OTHER REGIONS DO! I need a catchy Nevada title for my blog...something to pull you in.
Rattlesnake recipes? (I've actually eaten rattle snake..no joke. I was young. And tipsy)
Anyway, back to "Southern Plate".
I LOVE HER BLOG. I am her fan!! (and her mother's and grandmothers---since she uses a lot of their recipes)
Check out her blog!!

Now for me? Well once a year, I like to make a rhubarb recipe. When I told Rich I was going to make rhubarb crunch, he asked me "why"? (Rhubarb is not his favorite, although he does like this crunch--he just forgets about it from year to year. But I answered, "because I can". And then I made it... not with the puny, sad looking rhubarb in my slide show (yes, that is from my garden....well actually my "sideyard" and I forget about it. It's by Monroe's pen. The rhubarb and some stray mint ), I actually bought some rhubarb at the market to make this crunch.

Sadie (my daughter in law, who has been on a week's vacation, and is not available to help me figure this blog set up right now) will help me figure this out sometime in the coming week. But for now, I can't figure out how to insert a picture and then write underneath it and then insert another picture and give more directions, etc etc. Whenever I try to insert, all my pics go to the top, so I am going to do two blog posts.... pictures of me making the rhubarb crunch and then this one with the directions.
Hopefully it will kind of work out.
I'll know in a minute.....if not...if this is all out of order...forgive me. I'm taking a break until after I learn how to do this. ~grins~

I am so glad I saw this and so flattered!!!

You know, I have never seen rhubarb in our grocery stores. It just isn't something readily available here. I DID try rhubarb jam once and just about died of joy and happiness!! This pic of your crunch jumped right out at me, which caused me to read the post beneath it and YAY I'M FAMOUS! lol!!

~grins even broader~
My name is Christy, but I answer to just about anything, SouthernPlate is fine!!!

Thank you so much for reading my blog and for the extremely kind and generous praise!!!!!!

I wish I could get rhubarb now....
