Forced rhubarb

The weather may have been cold but we are now eating rhubarb forced under a plastic bin. With custard or cream that is the question.

It would make a change from sitting on an upturned bucket. :wink:
Keep calm and carry on.

I'm going to buy a value bin and call it a stool, then I will use a water butt as a table and call it a bar. Chique or what!!! :lol: Rhubard and custard and cream on a plastic plate with a spork, lush one could say. I shall sip sherry from an egg cup with my pinky stuck in the air. :wink: :lol:

I know someone who's husband complained that she never gave him rhubarb and custard. She didn't realise it had to be cooked. She just put a whole stick on a plate and poured custard over it. :lol:

I like it when we go to hubs parents and they ask "do you want this for pudding or ice cream?", I dither and they say "you can have both if you want!" I want, I want. :D :lol: Oh it really is a trick question.

You could say 'I don't really want any pudding, and I'm right off ice cream'. Think of the shock they would get. :wink:

That really would be no good for me, I would get no pudding just to shock them. :? Nope, can't see the fun it that. :lol: Although, hubby would then ask for my portion, I would look at him like a seal about to be clubbed and he would give it back to me, might work ok then. :wink:
