So, for Christmas I was given one of those desktop day-by-day calendars that you buy at a mall kiosk with a theme, and the theme for this one is the Food Network. I was initially slightly underwhelmed, as about 40-70% of their tips and/or recipes are about dead animals, but everything came full circle when I realized it had today, Thursday June 9th, listed as National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day.
Strawberry rhubarb pie is the best pie that one can ever make or eat. This is incontestable. The only possible other option is straight up rhubarb pie; I will allow that as a matter of personal choice. In honor of this day, different from all other days because on other days we eat all types of vegetables but today we eat rhubarb in honor of our ancestors who came out of Egypt, I would like to share this recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie from the Wall Street Journal (which, I mean, what?) that looks totally f*cking insane and awesome. Enjoy.
