As Step Son is to be married tomorrow, and family is gathering, I am making happy occasion food. Do you know what I mean? Is there food that means fatigue or sick, happy or sad to you? I realize not everyone has this relationship with food and life. This is my mom's recipe in her hand writing. I can't remember exactly how I got it, when she gave it to me or under what situation, but I have had it for a very long time.
Mom's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
1 1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. all purpose flour
1/2 t. grated orange peel (opt)
3 c. cut up rhubarb (1/2 inch pieces)
3 c. strawberries, sliced
2 T. butter
A double pie crust
Arrange the bottom pie crust in a pie plate that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Combine all other ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared crust.
Add top crust and crimp edges. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees until done.
Remember to celebrate happy occasions with happy food.
