Afternoon What Now?

Cucumber ToastWho says cucumber sandwiches have to be an upper class treat? Notorious for their place next to afternoon tea, cuke sandwiches have a nasty reputation for gracing the tables of the elite. But, as cucumbers came in this week’s share, along with this dazzling pile of delicious –

  • a head of lettuce
  • bok choy
  • swiss chard
  • escarole
  • zucchini
  • snap peas
  • cilantro
  • cucumbers
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • eggs

– we have decided to prove that afternoon tea comes in many forms. I’ve long since ditched the crustless, white bread, triangle-shaped cucumber sandwiches, and adopted a simple rendition of cucumber slices on buttered toast doused in salt and pepper, which in the painful 99° weather this week, was heavenly. Paired with a glass of water with extra cuke slices in it, we managed to fend off the heat for at least the extent of lunchtime.

Tea on another day perhaps. A day significantly cooler.
