Now, I will admit that I am not the best housekeeper in the world.  I tend to let messes get… well… messy. I’ve been known to just leave things until I really can’t stand it anymore before I clean it up.  As such, don’t look too closely at my kitchen floor.  I’m a corner-sweeper.  You know?  The kind of person that just sweeps the crumbs into the corner until the end of the day when I pick up the dust pan and get rid of it?  Well, I guess I used to be a corner sweeper.

The kids and I were admiring our rhubarb, the other day, and decided that it needed picking and using.  So, we pulled some stalks and cut the leaves off and ventured inside.  We had marshmallows lying around because, well.. to be honest, we usually do, and the kids and I were snacking on them.  Healthy, I know…
