Cucumbers

#1
Having just eaten nearly a whole cucumber (I needed something crunchy and syn-free and I have run out of lettuce!) I suddenly remembered that there was a quotation about cucumbers, so I looked it up:

"Cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and
then thrown out, as good for nothing"
-- Samuel Johnson

Now I am a great admirer of Dr Johnson, but he was definitely wrong there!

Totally agree. One of the best places to find cucumber is in a G&T.

I love just munching on cucumber. My oh can't stand it; it must be like marmite

Mine hates it as well.........but loves marmite:D
I enjoy cucumber and tomato with salt and black pepper on ryvita as a snack and gazpacho without diced cucumber is like fish without chips.

Beginning to see a pattern. Can't say what my oh calls cucumber on here. But he also loves the evil known as marmite :-D
