Jet lag had me awake at 5 a.m. today. By 7 I had weeded and dead-headed in the garden, walked Auggie, and watched some of the shows I missed whilst I was away.
After taking Auggie to Mr. Warren for a spa day, I went to Soulard Market. One of my favorite vendors had a new (new to me!) vegetable, a lemon cucumber!
I decided to bring one home and have a go. The veggie is the size of a lemon, with yellow-ish flesh. Upon cutting the cucumber in half, I had the strong scent of cucumber, with rather more seeds perhaps.
I at half of the lemon cucumber at luncheon today, with some heirloom tomatoes, a bit of mango and oil dressing, and a nice slice of bacon & cheese quiche too!
