a cucumber… has MANY uses!!

With all this fresh produce around my house, I decided to use the cucumbers tonight and make up a wonderfully light sandwich. These sandwiches are no stranger in our household, and some have scoffed at the ingredients [just remember, that not everything needs to be fried to taste delicious]…
All that is needed to create this delightful sandwich is a hearty, multi-grain bread [preferably a loaf that is dense], sprouts or shoots, avocado, cucumber and a cheese [or even two] of your liking…
Toast the bread, spread a light mayonnaise on the slices, fresh black pepper and start building… if you want you can definitely add sliced tomatoes and even some crispy bacon [but that is your own decision]…
The sandwich is creamy, crunchy and has plenty of wow to it… I’m not saying it’s better than a greasy burger, but when you are in the mood for something healthy and a bit different give this one a whirl, I’m certain you will make it again [heck possibly that same night]…

at a low simmer…

Al fresco dining!!

Tonight was the first night of al fresco dining of the season with my honey… after a day of power washing and cleaning, it was a must to take advantage of sitting outside and enjoying the summer-like weather!
On the menu were hamburgers made from ground filet mignon and top round. The burgers were prepped no-frills in order to relish in the meaty goodness… just simple salt and pepper! A total of six minutes on an open grill with searing flames, one slice of cheddar, onion and a salsa made up of a mix of diced veg, olives, corn and black beans on a toasted bun. Dinner was close to served…
For a side, homemade pasta salad and for some salty crunch… kettle cooked chips! A light, warm breeze and dinner was ready to be savored…
