It seems, or so I thought, that among the blogs I read (and there are lots, and lots) that the 90's were making this huge comeback. I thought, incorrectly, that this could limit itself to the blogging community. Not-so-much. In my world, there is Pearl Jam everywhere. Great. Flashing back to the awkwardness on my teen years is super fun. I love it.
I think that there should really be a 25 year limit before music, clothes, etc...can make a comeback. Don't you agree?
Anyhoo - I digress...
In reading the blogs, I stumbled upon this little gem. I think I'll be making this tonight, if I don't fall down from sheer exhaustion.
Orange Rhubarb Compote
2 tbsp butter
1 lb rhubarb
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp orange liquor
zest of one orange
1. Trim the Rhubarb of the ends, and split it lengthwise down the center. Cut across in 1 cm. intervals, leaving you with rough cubes of rhubarb.
2. In a large bowl, toss the rhubarb with the sugar and orange liquor, and orange zest, and set aside.
3. Melt the butter in a medium heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. When the butter has melted add the sugar coated rhubarb. Let this cook over a medium heat, undisturbed, for about 2 minutes. When the rhubarb has started to release juices, gently stir.
3. Continue cooking the compote over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the juices are all released, then begin to thicken. Cooking time is about 10 to 15 minutes total, until the compote looks thick and the rhubarb is tender.
The lyrics, the only ones from this band, get stuck all the time:
Waitin, watchin the clock, its four o'clock, its got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over...
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over
*big sigh* why can't Nirvana get stuck in my head? Who doesn't want to smell like teen spirit?
