Cucumber Salad

It’s really great to be home.  My brother fixed a smoked pork ribeye and smoked pork tenderloin, for our welcome home dinner.  I fixed a cucumber salad, with cucumbers and onions from the garden.  And we had some good fresh bread to go with it.  It was delicious.  I’ll be making pork fried rice with the leftover pork.

I have to say it’s pretty amusing around our house now, kind of like a cross between Grumpy Old Men and Two and a Half Men!  I am the minority and will be living in the testosterone level for a while.

If you have lots of cucumbers, like we do now, this is a great, simple salad.
