Life List - Make a pie with fruit from our garden

Our rhubarb and mint plants are the only things in our garden you can count on to grow - besides the weeds of course.  Every year the rhubarb explodes seemingly overnight and I give away bags and bags of it.  This year I put some in the kitchen at work with a sign that said "Free" and ran away.  Hee.

I have made lots of crisps and crumbles over the years but I rarely make pies because I am not good at making pie dough.  I hate it.  And it hates me.  Thank goodness I picked a pie with only one crust.

This rhubarb crumble pie was pretty tasty, and while I thought it was too lemony, others didn't even taste the lemon.  So there you go.

I also made Nigella's Irish Tarte Tatin which was not my favorite - too doughy.
