Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp From Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast Garden

Springtime is amazing in Western North Carolina. The beauty of the flowers blossoming and the trees leafing, but the fruits, vegetables and herbs that are available at this time are already abundant. Our rhubarb started early this year and I recognized the fact that I need to use it now. Okay...what can I make for breakfast! When I think of rhubarb, strawberries hit my mind. Dessert! How about strawberry rhubarb crisp. Just at that time, our guest came into the kitchen with a picture of strawberry rhubarb pie from WNC magazine. Well I didn't have time to make a pie but I certainly developed a great strawberry rhubarb crisp for the morning. Enjoy the recipe and be sure to top it off with Blue Bell Vanilla Bean ice cream!

1 3/4 cups fresh rhubarb, cut
1 3/4 cups fresh strawberries, cut

I-40 To Reopen on North Carolina/Tennessee Border to Western North Carolina

Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast is ecstatic to welcome back all of our friends, west of us. For the past 6 months I-40 has been closed due to a rock slide. In order for our guests to visit us in Western North Carolina they had to detour 1-1/2 hours out of their way. By the time they got here they were in dire need our TLC and I must say they had big smiles on their faces by the time they left us. We thank all of you who went out of your way to visit us at our Waynesville North Carolina Bed and Breakfast.

To commemorate the Grand Opening of I-40 we will donate $3.00 to the Susan G.Komen for the Cure foundation for every new reservation we receive for the months of May and June. See you all real soon!
