Cucumbers are coming in very fast.

Hubby and I have not been able to keep up with our garden this year.
We spent our 10 year anniversary in MIssion Hospital in Ashville NC.

We were involved in a motorcycle accident. Hubby broke 3 ribs and a wrist.
I ended up with a lot of roadburn on both arms and shoulders.

That is also why I ended up with a new camera. My old one was smashed.

Our garden and weeds are coming in faster than we can keep up, but I am getting back
in the groove slowly.

Just thankful we are both still here. It could have been worse.

Here is one way I love to use an excess of cucumbers, Tabouli. This recipe came out of my
Mastercook Software.

I did substitute couscous for the bulger in this picture’s occasion.


Recipe By :Elizabeth Powell
Serving Size : 6

1 pound cooked bulgur
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic — finely minced
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves — minced
1 cup fresh parsley — chopped
1 cup scallions — chopped
Black pepper
2 medium fresh tomatoes — chopped
1 small cucumber — peeled, seeded, chopped

Prepare bulgur according to package directions. Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice. Add garlic, scallions, mint, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix dressing with bulgur and chill overnight. Stir in chopped tomatoes and cucumber immediately before serving.

    SO sorry to hear you had an accident. But glad to hear you’re okay. Hope your hubby heals quickly. What’s the status of the motorcycle, though?

    Hey Carolyn,
    Thanks for the comment.
    The motorcycle is now in the shop being repaired.

    Some headlight damage, saddle bags, cosmetic..we were not going that fast..about 25 MPH maybe.

    Sorry about your accident. Did a car cut you off? My husband is taking a trip out West in Sept. and I worry about him on the bike more and more. The tabouli looks refreshing.

    Yes, thankfully we were going very slow at the time. It is the other guy you have to watch!
