Rhubarb. It's what's for dinner.

I'm going to start posting things I made for dinner, in an effort to give people ideas, and in the hope that PEOPLE COMMENT BACK WITH MORE IDEAS. PLEAASEEE????

Last night we had:

pizzas made with 2 pieces of garlic naan I got off the "yesterday's baked goods" shelf for a buck fifty, topped with sauce, reduced fat mozz, and one had olives and one had pineapple.

i had salad with lettuce from the garden, nasturtium leaves (peppery? those suckers were hot!), tomatoes, cukes, while the boys had carrots, tomaters and cukes with hummus.

then, i chopped up rhubarb, put it in a ramekin with some organic sugar (tastes different than reg sugar, I'm not being pretentious, I swear!) and baked at 400 for about 18 min. Topped with ice cream. 3 y/o dipped his carrots in it. I thought it was de-lish. I got the recipe from the comments in this post from You Grow Girl. Thank you!!!

cheap, fast and easy. just like me. :P

I have read every post, I just forget to comment. The rhubarb stuff sounds yummy. I made a rhubarb pie once and it was awful... then again it wasn't home grown rhubarb.

I love the blog, keep up the good work.

I'm a frugalista in training.

For one... let me just say I stumbled on your blog from the Bargain Board and lost the link and have been looking for it forever. Found it again on MDU. I love what you are doing.
Have you tried looking at allrecipes.com? They have an ingredient search. I typed in rhubarb and came up with all of these recipes:
