Chez Beverly

I did not get around to doing anything crafty today as I had a little restaurant in my kitchen. A fun thing I do for the dental clinic i work for. We have lunch and they pay me for it. Here is a picture of the craftiest thing i did today--hah it was quick. My sister had given me the white paper lace and the frame was found at a second hand shop, I had a pink bow sitting around and letters from scrapbooking. The dental clinic dubbed me the title!!!The menu was Squash Soup, which is a favorite of everyone's it seems, green salad with lots of veggies and hemp dressing, and ground flax to put on top, banana chips and flax bread for the side, 2 salads, one with oranges, the other with tomato.
I made Flax and onion bread and also some sunflower bread the traditional way-I sold it sorry no picture!!

and butter tarts which i burnt but they took some home to their husbands anyway!!! because we are country people and i told them clarisa said she liked my cooking wether it was burnt or not. Nice chilren I have eh!!!!I also really got in the cooking mode and made some sweet potato chips with sea salt cumin and olive oil. you can dehyrate these or bake them.

and finally some rhubarb custard pie, rhubarb which is just starting to grow in my garden. It turned out so nice. Pie crust was just very flaky and tasty!! I used 1 cup of Crisco, 2 cups white flour, dash of ordinary salt, 2 tbsp sugar and 5-4 tbsp of water.
For the filling i use approximate measures even though i was looking at the recipe-so here goes-1 1/2cup of sugar, 1/4 cup flour, pinch of nutmeg, mix that in with finely cut rhubarb, and pour an egg mixture over that which is 1/2 pint or more of cream, and a good tbsp or so of vanilla, i used three eggs. I baked that for almost an hour at 350 as it was a large pie.

Boy, you were busy and now I'm hungry. Not fair. I can see why they pay you. I have made many rhubarb desserts. I love rhubarb. But I have never had rhubarb custard pie, that sounds divine. I would love to see your recipe for that.
