    Foxflower, thanks for the recipe for the rhubarb slush. Sounds kind of like an Orange Julius (love those, but not often due to calorie counting)!

    AnngelAnne, your recipe sounds about like what the restaurant might use for a recipe for the rhubarb lemonade.

    I may just scoot on down to the grocery and see if they have any frozen rhubarb. Can't grow it, but I can buy it. The folks on this train sure love to eat, don't they??

    IBQLTN..I think I can relate to that! All this good food sure makes one hungry! Lasagna, garlic bread & wine....right up my alley! Someone mentioned fried cheesecake. Never tried it fried, but I love cheesecake. I'll have to whip up some pumkin cheesecake..but be careful! It's awfully rich!

    AngleAnne I bet you could add tea bags after straining and make a great tasting lemon rhubarb tea, hot or cold. I'll have to try it if I can find any rhubarb here in Florida.
    It's always sunny here in Fl unless it's raining,LOL

    The rhubarb lemonade sounds wonderful. I hope my friend brings extra rhubarb when she comes so that I can make the bars and the lemonade.

    4 days to go!!! Time is going slowly by. Have a few things to clean off the table yet. Oh - did DD say she was coming home this weekend???? Then I really will have to clean the table off and take down the ironing board.

    I best see what I need to clean while the thought is with me. Have a great evening ladies. We are getting a few drops of rain. Hope it keeps up all night - I mowed the lawn and we fertilized also. I have seeds ready to plant tomorrow if it isn't raining. Puttering outside is just like quilting - a stress releaver. Can't wait for the garden to start coming up. This year I'm planting acorn squash and pumpkin besides a huge amount of beets. Darn - now I'm thinking of food again.

    Good night.......

    Welcome to the mystery train Pamesue. If you have any question don't hesitate to ask. This train is always on the move and the food and drinks are in abundance. The company is great and we have lots of fun as we wait for each clue to be revealed. Looking forward to seeing your fabrics.

    Everose my green beans and cucumbers are peeking out of the ground. The plants I started in the house are doing well? Im thinking of putting in a row of zucchini. I love it in salads and stews.

    Sunliten sounds like you had an awesome road trip... but then any trip that involves fabric is awesome in my book.
    Have an awesome day!

    I have a large extended family who will shop my garden once its ready... and my rows are only about four feet long. We cut and flash freeze alot of veggies also for stews in the winter.
    Have an awesome day!

    I am going to copy the directions and then when I complete all I am doing will start on it. This sounds like fun and something I will enjoy doing.

    hi to all my 'mysterious' friends. just dropped in to catch up. you have all been very busy and, apparently, very hungry. love the fabrics so far. i have not chosen mine yet. did, however, get my top completed from the first mystery train. it is lovely but i don't have time to post pic right now. getting ready to troop over to my wed quilt group.

    last night my buddy and i went to a guild meeting in another city to show our guild's opportunity quilt. sold a lot of tickets and met some more wonderful quilters. they were having an auction so we joined in and got lots of great loot. the members donate fabric, notions, patterns, books, etc. then it is bagged up and sold as lots. for a small guild they had lots of lots. they were all laughing at the visitors as we jumped in with them to bid on their stuff. it's all for their scholarship fund and we got some good stuff. great fun.

    looking forward to starting this train ride. will pick my fabs soon.

    I haven't chosen mine either! Right now it's maybe this, or this, or???? Maybe the first cutting clues will help me decide. Sure hope so................

    Would love to join as this sounds like it will be really fun! The only mystery I've done is one my MIL started and got mixed up assembling it and I tried to figure out how it was supposed to be. Finished up really pretty, even though I would have picked different fabrics as my taste differs from hers.
    Will be a little late getting started as I will be out of town the next two weekends and very busy in between. But I'm sure I can eventually catch up.

    Greetings!!!! Yes, I'm ready!!!!! Fabric is picked for this one and alternatives are also just a pick away. Can't wait - do we know what time Judy will be posting???

    Sunliten, we were just talking about extra fabrics!!!! But I too got some in the mail that I ordered. I need to get sewing on some projects, I guess. Did you see some good Black and Whites? Although now I am looking for animal and Christmas. Never ending.

    THE GOOD NEWS!!!! Mom will be going to the memory unit. She qualifies to stay there. Goodness, I was scared this morning about her maybe having to go somewhere else or maybe me just staying home and not going to CA. But we went out there today. She seemed to like it and the lady who does hair was there and she got a haircut. All is good in her world.

    Jen, a row!!! I have seeds that are ready to plant but I think a couple hills of zuccini will do. We love it also. I fry with a little butter, onion and maybe throw in a chopped tomato. WOW - wonder what's for supper. But I'm going to plant some winter squash and pumpkin also this year. I can't wait to get out there and drop those seeds. I envy your garden that is up already.

    72 hours?? Less now. That means I need to put a border on my last mystery and get it finished. The first border is too wide, so it's back to the drawing board.

    I've cooked my rhubarb, but haven't made the tea yet. I did make rhubarb muffins with a cinnamon struesel filling and topping this morning. They smelled very good. Neither flavor overpowered the other. Muffins, anyone??

    Read about this mystery train quilt and thought was good idea, so gonna try with u guys, unfortunately I won't be able to give out recipes. My cooking skills are really bad, most is unedible, I even have blow up eggs. But your recipes sound great. Now off to my sewing room to try and find material that would work together. Called my best friend about it forgetting she is on here everyday, she was already signed up that will make it double the amount if fun

    You do not have to worry about your cooking skills. There is more than enough food and fun served on this Mystery Train to go around. I still have not chosen my fabrics yet, but that is part of the fun, the big dash to board the train at the last minute.
