I just don't get it...


I have tried ~more than once so it really does count. How on earth do people like cucumbers? I was blog surfing today and came along a post with the pretties picture of a cucumber sandwich you can imagine and part of me thought for five seconds "wouldn't that be lovely" and then I remembered cucumbers are evil. I have friends who love them, they enjoy them in sandwiches, salads, sushi I have one friend that loves them in water and I will admit that it does give the water a fresh coolness to it ~but i'm not one for water either so the cucumbers don't help. On study abroad every week for our field trip they were packed in our lunch along with a tomato and all I could think was if the world was good and right cucumbers would be bacon. I don't even like them in my lotion ~and that is only a sent and not a flavor. Only in the last year have I finally admitted defeat and now will eat the cucumbers that sneak their way into my salad or wasatch roll at sushi. I hope you're happy cucumber ~evil spawn vegetable.

Mmmmmm cucumbers!!! Cucumbers sliced thinly and swimming with sliced onions in a bowl of vinegar was always a staple at our Sunday Dinner table. Delish!

PS... I looked at that pretty little sandwich and thought to myself, "That's so Swedish." To my surprise your blogger is a resident of Gothenburg Sweden (pronounced you-tuh-bor) where all of my husband's family lives.

Small world!

LOL! You crack me up Ann! I do like them but I wouldn't say I LOVE them!

I'm with you, Ann. Cucumbers always struck me as just a little tube of watermelon rind with no watermelon for your trouble.
