Happy Friday!

Whole Wheat Skillet Rhubarb Cobbler

Today is all about music, girl time, and singing loudly in the car. I’m road tripping friends! And with my bestie, so there is nothing that can get in the way of alllllll the fun! Except maybe a traffic jam…or an accident..or a lot of rain…or like, a medical emergency. But that’s not going to happen!

I hope.

For part of the weekend we’re camping and for another part we’re staying at a cottage. I’ve been Googling “festival hair” for days. How does a gal with a growing out bob (and no mirror) not wash her hair for 2 days and still look cute? HELP ME! I am totally ready to just let it all fly around like Einstein, but you know? I am open to suggestion.

Speaking of hair, anyone see this post? HAHAHA!

Other things I need to think about this weekend are:
(1) Bugs sucking my blood (ew),
(2) The scary burning sun,
(3) Having enough toilet paper, and

Cake is a snack, right?

Well actually, this is a cobbler if you want to get into specifics, but it kind of looks like a cake! And I like eating it for read trip snacks, breakfast, AND dessert.

What I love most about this cobbler is how jam-packed with rhubarb it is. It’s not too sweet, whole wheat, has tons of fruit and is pretty darn gorgeous, if I do say so myself. Yummmmmmm!!
