Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

This is a once a year treat for the family. I have rhubarb growing in my yard so it is easy to just go out and pick a couple stalks for this recipe. Rhubarb is actually a vegetable but you will often find it paired with strawberries. You can usually find it in the produce (fruit) section of the grocery store. They are long red stalks sometimes with large leaves. This dessert is great served warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
