It's my turn to type out the five faves this week. Hooray!
1. Music - it's been a great weekend for music in Hobart. Notably the gentlemanly and wonderful Jandek and the fun and sweaty UV Race
2. Missed Connections - I love reading personal ads and imagining who wrote them, so naturally, I love this.
3. Spite Houses
4. Sunshine & Grease
5. Going to the farm gate market every Sunday ( for Hobartians - corner of Melville and Elizabeth Streets, every Sunday morning)

I brought some rhubarb and some strawberries from a local farmers market, then I got home and found a recipe on Smitten Kitten entitled Strawberry and Rhubarb Crumble, meow that's totally purr-fect.
Rhubarb with Strawberry Crumble
1 cup flour
1/2 cup of oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
Zest of one lemon
For the filling:
1 1/2 cups rhubarb, chopped into 1cm pieces
1 punnet of strawberries plus a few extras, hulled, quartered
Juice of one lemon (pinched from the neighbours tree)
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of custard powder
Nice pinch of salt
1. Heat oven to 150C.
2. Prepare filling: Toss rhubarb, strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch and a pinch of salt in a deep little pie dish and Mix.
3. Prepare topping: In bowl, sift in flour, baking powder, add sugars and lemon zest and add the melted butter.
4. Cover fruit with topping. Bake until crumble topping is golden and fruit is bubbling beneath, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Let it rest a little and then add some ice-cream or something else even naughtier.
