Summer is here! I love and hate it at the same time. I love it because it is summer: sunny, hot, with a lot of fresh fruits and fun activities. But I hate it because it is impossible for me to do anything serious in summer. And my best friend Marfa explained it so well just today: in Russia every single year during school (and it is 12 years!!) we had no school for the whole summer. This habit is not so easy to break! This is probably a reason why she wanted to become a teacher!
Summer is always something that I am looking for; and it always is something that comes unnoticeable (and of course ends too quickly!). But the first sign of summer for me is rhubarb. I love to eat it raw, but for my boyfriend it is a challenge, so I prepared this pie for him. It is sweet and sour with buttery short crust.
