My good friend Mary Ruth Middlebrook has travelled many miles with me. Many years ago on one of our adventures in Northwest Arkansas, we stopped at at Mom and Pop cafe and on the counter there was one of the most beautiful pies that I have ever seen. Mary Ruth agreed that it was very unusual, with the highest meringue topping that I had ever seen, and she proceeded to take a picture of the pie. The staff at the cafe thought we had lost our minds.
A couple of weeks ago when I visited Mary Ruth in Granbury, TX, we talked about that pie that we had seen in Arkansas. She told me she wanted me to eat some rhubarb pie and take a picture of it to send to her. This is a picture of that pie.
