Are you sick of strawberries and rhubarb yet?! I’m not 🙂
I found a recipe for Strawberry-Rhubarb Squares from Stonyfield Farms and while I didn’t have all the ingredients, I substituted. The squares had a tough time staying together…they sliced well but them fell apart. But oh they were good. So sugary and sweet! I took them to my young adult small group meeting at church and people really enjoyed them. They were all gone before I left. But unfortunately I left without a photo…but trust me, you’re not missing much. Just imagine crumbs 🙂
Here is the original recipe. I however substituted mashed banana for 1/4 c. of yogurt and 1/2 c. of granulated sugar for brown sugar. I also didn’t have strawberry flavored yogurt, so used french vanilla and added real strawberries 🙂 Maybe my substitutions had something to do with it falling apart?
When I made the recipe, it had been one of those days where I felt very overwhelmed and stressed. I’ve had it pretty easy since returning from Togo, but once in a while my days get so jammed packed, I have a melt down. Life was just slower in Togo and some days I have a hard time readjusting. Well, I decided not to use a blender to cream the butter, egg, and sugar and instead put all my frustration into it. Man, my arm hurt! But it was creamed. And after talking to my mom on the phone, I felt much better. Plus after eating a piece of this with a glass of milk before bed…ahh, life was good again 🙂
Here are the steps:
Well worth the frustration! And a season ends…goodbye rhubarb, it’s been fun! Until next year…
