Rhubarb sauce and GRAND Social No. 266 link party for grandparents

Rhubarb sauce

When it comes to seasonal treats that spell summer, for me, the letters r-h-u-b-a-r-b — arranged in that order — are among those at the top of my list. (Root beer floats, homemade ice cream, and cherries rank right up there, too).

Brianna's garden has flourished this summer, especially her green onions and rhubarb, so she's given me a decent share of both. The rhubarb was a special treat — as my rhubarb didn't grow well at all this summer — and I immediately simmered up a rhubarb sauce for topping vanilla ice cream (and shared the sight on social media).


So delicious, so sweet... and so quickly gobbled up (by me and only me because Jim doesn't like rhubarb!) in no time.

Rhubarb sauce is my favorite way to use the summertime stalks of goodness. What is your favorite way to serve up rhubarb?

GRAND Social No. 266

Thank you for joining me for yet another GRAND Social link party. YOU make the party, my friends!

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

<div style="text-align: center;"><span class="full-image-inline ssNonEditable"><img src="/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1403499127249" alt="" /></span></div>

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
