The Rhubarb Dilemma Continues…

So there's been a lot of talk about the rhubarb recipe the other day. We were taken by surprise that so many people had rhubarb growing in their gardens or was receiving it from a CSA but nobody had any recipes other than pie. After eating the rhubarb avocado soup for a couple of days, I have to say that it's not something I'd put on my favorite recipe list. Maybe it's an acquired taste! But in an effort to not be defeated by that bitter veggie, we looked for another recipe. Katie found one for a paleo rhubarb strawberry crumble, and we figured we'd doctor it up to make it fit our fueling needs. The results are in and I gave it a "not bad". Katie said something along the lines of "if I liked rhubarb this would be really good!" With those rave reviews, we submit another attempt with rhubarb!

    This main site programming is INTENSE!!!! But I love it! Very challenging! 🙂
    Have fun Jenn, be safe. See ya when you get back!

  3. Checkout our facebook page. Today is the 5 anniversary of Operation Redwing where Michael Murphy, “Murphy WOD,” lost his life fighting bravely during a Talaban ambush in Afghanistan. I have a link to a tribute that a friend of CrossFit Evolve posted.

  4. Be sure to checkout the link on our web page under “Up Coming Events” and pull up the 200 mile project. Dustin just completed a training run the other day after attending the GRIT Greengrass fundraiser just past Livermore. Dustin left the fundraiser at 7:30 pm and ran to his home in Windsor and arrived at 5:30 am the following day. Dustin ran just under 50 miles “as a training run” not to mention running all night. Please check out his site and help out in anyway you can. He is raising money for GRIT Athletics and for RAMStrong. Great job Dustin and keep up the great work.
    Dustin, you are an example of determination, selflessness, and mental toughness to us all!

  5. Dustin, I am also willing to run with you. Just let me know when, where, and how far. I may need to start training!

  6. Awesome work Dustin!
    I just checked out Roaring Fork Crossfit this evening, gonna stop in for a WOD tomorrow morning. It’s a good sized box, but the atmosphere is very different, so we’ll see how it goes. Also, I guess there’s a retired NYFD firefighter staying at this campground, and he has a piece of the World Trade Center with him. They’re going to use it to dedicate a new station in Aspen. His son died in 9/11. I’m hoping to get to talk to him while I’m here.
