We had guests for lunch the other day and I baked these delicious Rhubarb and Strawberry Slices to have for dessert.   We had them along with some sliced strawberries and cream.   They went down a real treat!  And I am not surprised for they are truly delicious!  These are S P R I N G personified!

Rhubard and Strawberries are a flavor combination that was truly made in heaven.  It is no surprise that they are ripe for the picking during the same season.   They are truly meant to go together.

There is not much about these that is unlikeable.  Delicious on the day . . .  delicious two days later.   These are almost dangerous to have around . . .  they are that good.  Trust me.
