    I like hamburgers, but only on a soft bun with ketchup, mustard, mayo, bacon, lettuce, toms, onion. Maybe a slice of cheese, I guess. My point is beef burger meat is just a vehicle for condiments to me.

    But I will say this: Barbacoa from Chipotle is actually pretty good, though in the past ten years I have gotten maybe 5 times. It is a once in a blue moon food to me.

    I am so with you on the rhubarb critique! Yuck!

    What a shame. I tell you this though, that would turn me off from rye bread forever.

    I eat PB 5 days a week. It is a bit of a staple, though I usually just eat a spoon's scoop of it.

    I really wish I liked it. It's pretty healthy, and definitely cheap. I thought that once I liked nuts, I might start liking PB, but no dice. It's just not a flavor I enjoy.

    Regarding rhubarb--strawberry rhubarb pie? It's delicious. I remember one of our neighbors grew rhubarb and my friends and I would pull it out of the soil and just chew on it. We liked the tartness of it.

    I love, love good rye bread! I eat bread rarely now, but would make an exception. Must be my German heritage...

    I tried rhubarb and strawberry pie as an adult. Ate the strawberries, tasted the rhubarb, and pushed the rest of it around my plate. I would have rather eaten the soil, personally.

    i actually like rhubarb in desserts, I can't say I actually eat much as it needs to be made into a dessert to taste good, but I would not decline rhubarb pie, tart etc..
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
