Sooo…with so many cucumbers, I thought the boys might like to make cucumber salad, a classic summer salad. Rex and Jude wanted to slice their own cucumbers and take some credit for it as we were taking it to an aunt and uncle’s for supper AND it’s one of their grandpa’s favorite.
We used the following recipe:
4 cucumbers thinly sliced
1 small onion thinly sliced (or 4 tiny ones, in our case)
1 cup white vinegar
½ cup water
¾ cup white sugar
1 tbsp dill
1 tbsp pepper
2 very careful boys (who have never used sharp knives before)
1 very calm mother (who has never let her boys use sharp knives before)
They did it (without any fingers sliced!)! It was delicious! And Rex was especially proud as his grandfather oohed and aahed and said it was one of the best cucumber salads he’s ever had.
