Caroline’s friend’s family is going on vacation for two weeks. They’re budding home gardeners and had a plethora of cucumbers to pick and eat before they spoil. Unfortunately, you can’t really bring zeppelin sized cucumbers on an airplane to Wisconsin, so they brought them to me instead.
I happen to enjoy the bounty of other people’s summer time gardening labor and eagerly accepted the cucumbers (and two bell peppers).
I made a little cucumber salad for lunch with a vinaigrette and some feta cheese sprinkled on top.
It made me happy.
In other kitchen related news, we made biscotti for Caroline’s international feast. Like I said yesterday, I cheated and used a cake mix recipe, but I’m unashamed.
