    Thank you so much for this recipe - I just was over to my neighbors last evening and picked enough to try making a rhubarb tea - recipe shared in earlier quote - and picked enough to make some muffins with a little left over - this will be perfect.

    I've been reading over this thread trying to decide if I should jump on board and try a mystery quilt - I've never done one before; you all make it sound very easy and there are other newbies that I wouldn't feel alone. I'll check my fabrics when I get home to see what I can come up with.

    You all have a fantabulous day.

    1 1/2 c. rhubarb, cut in 1/2" pieces

    Kristine,
    I've never done one either! But it sure looks like we're going to have a fun time with all this crew! And all the munchies in the club car will definitely satisfy our appetites as well. Jump in & join the fun!!

    Do you think these fabrics would work? I could use either the yellow or pink as my contrast fabric. Whichever one I don't use could be used as sashing or the white might work for sashing.

    so do we have to call it ;

    raiding the hidden treasure

    depleting fabric inventory

    digging in the gold mine

    magic material ( what is it called when somthing appears out of thin air.....better use Harry Potter term)

    retrieving from behind the invisability cloak

    no.....................shopping the stash.....is the best name for where fabric comes from

    Pam, I love this combo. I'm leaning towards the pink, myself. Universal baby quilt? White for the sashing looks good on either way.

    Hi everyone! Here we go again with the yummy food. I've been into the club car and those rhubarb bar cookies are about gone. Won't admit how many I've eaten! Have you ever had deep fried cheesecake? Oh my! I'll bring along some cheesecake and maybe we can figure out the deep fried thing. Thanks, Jennyk, for being a liason with the cook on this train. See you all soon!

    dabbler312, you might see if you can find a recipe for rhubarb lemonade anywhere. A restaurant in Seattle makes it and it's SOOOOOOO good!

    Ladies, I'm getting hungry again just reading what is in the club car. I'm going to ask the neighbor for some rhubard and make those bars. Can't wait - oh those thighs - going to get bigger I think.

    Welcome all of you that haven't been on our train before. It is so much fun!!!! And when it comes through ND I hope you can all get off for an hour or so and sit in my backyard. The johnny jump-ups came back again in my rock garden and they are so fun. I also planted 2 butterfly/hummingbird matts today. What a wonderful day to putter outside. Watered the raspberries. Wish some of you ladies lived closer and I would give you some plants, still have about 20-30 to get rid of this year. They come up EVERYWHERE they aren't supposed to.

    And the best news is that the house/polebarn/land in Michigan will be on the market after Memorial Day and it's right across from the land we own already. Even on Roberts Road (which is my last name-think it was named after DH's grandfather) - WOW!!!

    DH got home last night =late of course - but doesn't have to go out of town so far this week. Although if there is an emergency - he's gone. But will be nice to have him home again.

    Have a great day - it's count down time. Sunliten, love the term "Shopping the Stash". For those who are new to quilting, a "few" of us have a few extra yards of fabric laying around. You never know just when you need that extra color. My biggest problem was that I made fabric notecards and even DH would purchase fabric when he was traveling. How I got 700+ yards is beyond me. Of course, now I need other fabric to quilt - oh the sacrifices.

    Hey you guys...I think you are the reason I'm getting fat. Printed that recipe for the Rhubarb Bar Cookies. Going to make those. Staying out of that club car though except maybe for a glass of wine or two or three or four.

    Yum Sunliten I can smell the Grill and its WOW terrific Im grabbing my plate to be first in line for a serving. It's lucky this train also has a car set up with exercise equipment for us. I'll have to do an hour on the elliptical machine... that one that looks like your skiing. Then I will be ready to try some of the dirt pudding and lasagna with garlic bread in the caboose left by babyfire. The weather is beautiful..I can't wait till we make the stop in California to pick up our hostess of cermonies Judy.
    Have an awesome day!

    Yep, your right. Her daughter lives in California. But it would have been nice of her to have asked us along on her adventure in Europe don't you think?

    WOW - did Judy go to Europe? Good for her - I don't even get across the river anymore. But I'm going to CA in June!!!!!!! I can hardly wait. Hoping there will be some great fabric stores in the area we will be at.

    Called my friend and said "when you come for some raspberry plants, bring some rhubarb". Can't wait to try those bars.

    Off to Wal-Mart (the one without the fabric). DH is out of town again tomorrow so I will run an errand while he is here with Mom.

    I am so sorry but I ate the last of the Rhubarb bars. My goodness they were so good. Guess I will have to make some more. Now to go find some Rhubard. Do they sell it in the CA stores??????? Use to eat it a lot when I lived in MA. All the goodies in the car are so wonderful. Maybe I will just stay in here for the entire ride. LOL. this is my first mystery train ride too and I posted my material earlier. I am excited to get going too. Can Sat get her any sooner?????

    Here you go, at least this is what I use when I have fresh rhubarb. You are so right, it is major good.

    RHUBARB LEMONADE

    2 (12 oz.) pkgs. frozen rhubarb (3 c. fresh)
    1/4 to 1/2 c. sugar
    1 (6 oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate
    3 c. water

    In saucepan, combine the rhubarb, sugar, frozen lemonade concentrate and water.
    Cover and cook about 20 minutes, or until rhubarb is very soft. Strain to remove pulp. Chill the liquid. Just before serving, pour over ice cubes.

    If you chose you may add lemon lime carbonated beverage to each glass, or 2 (7 oz.) bottles (about 2 c.) lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled if you are making in a punch bowl. Makes 12 servings.

    OK, I must be tired. Did anyone else get an instant cartoon in their head of a woman with a big 'caboose'? You know, over the lips and straight to the hips?
