After we watched "A River Runs Through It," I finished my cukes and onions.
First, the movie. I had not seen it before, but Ken had. I wept quite a lot. Yes, it was sad, but I was mostly moved and touched by the scenery and the sentiment of fishing, and the relationships...I've been to Montana, and it really is THAT gorgeous. There are plenty of other places in our country that have incredible beauty, and I look forward to seeing more of what our country has to offer.
I wrote about my Mom's cucumber and onion recipe the other day. I'd like to clarify it a bit.
I used three good-sized cucumbers, peeled and sliced. I used one large Vidalia onion, cut in half and sliced thinly. I combined about a cup of Miracle Whip with a couple of tablespoons of milk and a couple of vinegar, and maybe a tablespoon of sugar. I wanted to be sure to get it marinating tonight, because the longer it sits, the better it gets.
Tomorrow's cookout menu is brats, baked beans, potato salad (didn't make it myself, but got a good one at our favorite store), and this cuke salad.
Enjoy the day, and with the Indy 500 happening today, happy racing!
