Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Two years ago we planted a rhubarb plant in our backyard.  My parents have a plant that is over 50 years old and still produces beautifully.  This was my first time harvesting the beautiful rhubarb - I was SO excited!!!  I have just been waiting to make this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp that my friend Melinda made at book group for our dessert.  I couldn't get enough of it.  It is sweet and yummy and is even liked by those who think they don't like rhubarb.  So good and SOOO much easier than pie!

Serve it warm with ice cream.

Cut the rhubarb into 1/2 inch pieces
