Vinegary Cucumbers and Onions


When my sister and I were kids, we used to love going to visit my grandparents in Lincoln, Nebraska. Mom and Dad would drive us to meet Grandma and Grandpa at the half-way point (McDonalds, of course) where our fun-filled week of zoo trips, chocolate zucchini cake, and quality time in Grandpa's leather chair would finally begin. It was always so much fun being with G&G!


I miss them a lot these days. Mostly at unexpected times, like when I run across a sweet old lady at the thrift store or take a bite of something very "theirs". This recipe is one of those. I eat these cucumbers and onions and am immediately reminded of summers in their kitchen, eating vegetables from their garden and fudgesickles for dessert. Those sure were the days.

To you, G&G--I'm eating these with a smile on my face.
