Dinner tonight was a bacon wrapped filet mignon (rare), new your style cheese sausage, hot link, twice baked potatoes made from scratch, salad, lemonade, and an ice cream sandwich.
unfortunately, what i thought were onions in the salad were actually cucumber pieces, so for the past 2 hours i've been reliving that part of the meal.
it wouldn't be so bad if I remotely liked cucumbers in any form other than pickled. (and since i discovered bread and butter jalapeno slices, I'm not even going after pickles so much any more)

no point to this, just wanted to whine.

I am told that there are two varieties of cucumber, the 'burp' variety and a non 'burp' variety, it is obvious which one you had. I don't mind cucumber, but I hate celery, so you have my sympathy for what it is worth! Hope you feel better by the time you read this.

actually, both of them do it to me.
and you have my sympathy on the celery thing - my wife is actually allergic to the nasty stuff.

It's Onions for me - any time I eat onions I end up re-living them for hours afterwards.

I won't eat onions unless batter fried. Any other form and I get sick on them. Two nights ago my wife fried some in a pan and stunk up the house. The smell got me so bad I had to go outside.

I love onions. :D But cucumbers are another story. They give me the worst heartburn so I stay clear of them unless they fool me like they did you Erik.

My wife makes a cucumber salad with vinegar and onions that is GREAT. And I can eat those with no heart burn side affects. Go figure. :confused:

I love cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches... love onions raw or batter fried, and cucumber and onion salad too ( a big summer time thing around here)

Doc's right, it's good stuff! Recipe follows:

2 cucumbers sliced extremely thin (use a mandolin slicer)
1 onion sliced the same way

Cover with cold water and 4-5 tablespoonfuls of salt and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain but do not rinse. Add equal parts sugar, water and vinegar. I like to cover the cucumbers completely so I will add 1/2 cup of everything listed above. It's a good summertime side dish.

Around here, the cuke salad is made much the way described above, except, instead of the dressing mentioned here, cream, thinned with a bit of milk, w/a tad of sugar makes the topping. Damn! I'm hungry again!:unsure:
