Cukes galore

This is a great cucumber recipe. We have way more cucumbers than we can eat, so I made this and brought it to some friends this weekend for a side dish. They loved it too. Now I’m looking for a recipe for cucumber soup…..

That looks very yum. I may just try it (with a few WW modifications). Yum, I loves me some fresh garden veggies! I meant to comment also on your Bounty post - pretty, very pretty!

I think you could do fat free sour cream and use splenda in place of the sugar and it would turn out great. I didn't of course and just counted more points.
No wonder I'm in a holding pattern with my weight!

That's exactly what I was thinking - lighten up the sour cream and use splenda. Plus - a holding pattern is better than going up pattern!! I'm finally on my way back down again - found my motivation finally. For me the maintaining is harder than the losing.

Anyway, thank you for posting this - it sounds quite tasty!
