Garden and Groceries

Last night we had a chance to sample 4 radishes from DH's garden. They were delicious and we look forward to having more of them as they get ready. We had some lettuce last week as well. We had a lot of rain and horrible storms Friday night. We live in the Midwest and they are still determining whether we had a tornado go through the middle of our city -- a lot of damage. We were fortunate to only have the usual limbs, twigs, and leaves blown down and no damage to the garden.

There's the standing joke about folks trying to give away zucchini. We apparently don't know anyone who wants to give it away because we would take it. We eat a lot of it.

Last year my brother gave us some cucumbers. It was hot out so I made a cucumber soup. It wasn't too bad and since it was served cold, it was refreshing.

I found this recipe for a cucumber salad. I'm going to fix it because it sounds good.

Creamy Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, thinkly sliced
1 t salt
1 1/2 c (12 oz) sour cream
1/3 c thinly sliced red onion
1/4 c snipped fresh dill
2 T white wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 t coarsely ground pepper

Place cucmbers in a colander over a bowl; sprinkle with salt and toss. Let stand for 15 minutes. Squeeze and blot dry with a paper towel.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. stir in cucumbers. Refrigerate, covered, at least one hour.
