Hello Rhubarb!

I have to ask you guys something...... is Rhubarb a good name for a girl? You could call her Rue (Hunger Games anyone?) or also, Barb (after an old great aunt perhaps?). Sometimes, [ok, mosttimes], I daydream about potential (baby) names. It doesn’t just have to be names for children either. No way! In fact, I’ve named a whole lifetime of family pets, when in reality I only have one (you remember her, she goes by Lo Mein). In the event however that I ever have a chance to expand the family roster with a dog or four more cats, I've been compiling a list of names.

Against my better judgment, I’m going to share them with you, but you have to promise not to steal them....That happened to me once with a baby name. (And also while we’re at it, a first dance wedding song. both. stolen.)

I don’t want to talk about it.

It was a little traumatic for me.

(Just for your information by the way, I’m nowhere near having a child nor marriage.)

The Line-up of names should I ever happen to acquire said dogs/cat:

Grover (A Russian Borzoi):

Smeagol the Beagle:



Ok so where was I going with this?

Oh yes, Rhubarb.

Take a look at the Rhubarb I just acquired! A friendly visit from the best friend of life brought some rhubarb into my existance. Such a harvest. Now I have to decide what I’m going to make with it.

I’m thinking I’ll have enough for this: (Strawberry Rhubarb pie)

I'm sorry.. did I just jump from Rhubarb, to baby names, to pet names and back to rhubarb again?

Yep. Did that.

So let me know what you think about Rhubarb... and to think... it wasn't even on my Spring Baking Line Up
