Actual conversation at the O.K. Chorale – as I measured out ingredients for a half batch of Mississippi Mud Cake for Eating the Opponent, St. Louis —
Me: I’m going to have a lot of marshmallows leftover. Do you know what that means?
Me: Rhubarb upside down cake.
Chuck: I was thinking Rice Krispie bars.
Me: We don’t have any Rice Krispies.
Chuck: I can fix that. Amigo, add Rice Krispies to the shopping list.
Yep, they were preparing the grocery list, and they added the key ingredient for the bars. I might have enough for the rhubarb upside down cake, too. It was a large bag of marshmallows to begin with. This might be the last rhubarb harvest, so it would feel good to make something good with it.
