Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble




David and I stopped by the grocery store to stock up for the week the other day. I was passing through the produce section and scanning all the different fruits and vegetables, when the rhubarb caught my eye. I have been wanting to make a Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble for a really long time, but it hasn't been in season. I grew up with my mom making this recipe for us and I have always really loved it, so you can understand why I was excited. It came out great, just like my mom's. I read an article in my, Cooking Light magazine, about freezing rhubarb which I would love to try since it isn't available year round. Anyways, this is sooo good!
