I will be away for the weekend, attending a buddhist meeting for four days. I still need to pack, my husband is writing down all the “to do’s” with the kids… ;-) They will have a “boys only” weekend!

For you one of my favorite rhubarb cakes with a recipe at the end of the post. Without many words though…
