A Taste of Summer

It's the official kick-off weekend for summer and I am SOOOO looking forward to it!!
Between the super warm weather, the sunshine and all the picnics we've been having, I kind of feel like it has already arrived.
So to start off the season, here's a surefire recipe for a summer picnic. 
Or maybe even a late spring one!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

1 pie crust
 (either homemade or store bought; enough to make a cover & base)

2 C Strawberries, hulled and chopped

2 C rhubarb, cut in small pieces
(I usually cut the stalk into three and then chop from there)

1 1/2 C granulated sugar

2 TBS flour

Zest of one orange

Juice of one orange

Mix all ingredients together and put in base of pie crust.  Cover with top crust.  Cut vents.  Decorate as desired.  Bake at 400 for about 40 minutes or until crust is brown and filling is bubbly.
