Cool Cucumbers

After being away from the garden for almost two weeks, we came home to "Cucumbers Gone Crazy."
I kid you not, they are climbing up into my neighbor's pine tree.
Plus, they are gigantic. These two are seventeen inches! Mr. Cabin says they are a little bitter when they are this big but we grew them so we're gonna eat 'em!

So here is just a fun little trick I use to fancy my cucumbers up a bit before tossing them with our favorite dressing.

First, peel them.


Then take a fork and run it down the length of the cucumbers to create little grooves.


It will look like this.


Then when you cut them into slices, they will look all fancy-schmancy like this...

 
Enjoy,
