We battle over... do we stay indoors or head outdoors?
Do we do book work or natural life learning? Can mom find a way to sneak in schooling while the lad is busy with other stuff?
Who gets the rhubarb?
The lad likes to eat it raw and plain. I'll take it cooked or raw sprinkled with sugar. Dad likes it cooked.
Today we compromised...the lad had two bowls raw, and I put the rest on to cook. We'll be making some rhubarb sauce.
Cut up some rhubarb, some like to peel it first, I don't bother.
Put it in a pan, add a touch of water.. more or less depending on how runny you like it. NOTE: if you make it too runny just pour off the excess and have rhubarb juice..mmm YUM! :) It's excellent in punches as well.
Then cook until it's all tender and mostly falling apart. I like to start it and then add abit about half way through. That way I get some chunks in it too!
Then sweeten to taste, using your sweetener of choice.
Eat it with a spoon! :)
Or use as a topping over ice cream, rice, pound cake etc.
All you really have to do it .. enjoy it! :)
