This is the recipe I used...
About 1 lb cucumbers (peeled if waxed)
2 T butter
1/2 C chopped onion
1/2 C sweet cream
Lots of dill (that's what the recipe says - seriously).
Cut cukes in half lengthwise and coop out seeds. Cut into 3/4 in chuncks. Place butter in skillet over med heat. When it melts, add onion and cook until onion softens, about 5 mins. Do not let onion brown. Add the cukes and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until the cukes are tender. Add pepper and salt.
Turn the heat to low, then stir in the cream and a good handfull of dill. Stir until well blended, then serve, garnished with more dill.
Tonight's menu:Picnic at Home
Chicken salad (that'll kill the roast chicken from Saturday)
Homemade baked beans
Homemade potato salad (haven't decided on traditional vs. german...need to make up my mind)
Homemade wheat bread (I love King Arthur's recipes...)
Lemonade (from the stash...I'm trying to use up anything in glass first, since that will be hardest to move).
Nothing exotic or tasty, but
Bread, chick salad are done. Baked beans are baking now.
