this year has brought a new love for veggies in general. its true they weren't always part of my diet, i'm not proud but i'm making up for it now. i love salads and i eat carrots, and tomatoes and peppers plain. its kinda crazy knowing my history. but cucumbers might be my new favorite. i love their touch of sweetness and how perfect they are with tomato, red onion, tomato and goat cheese with a bit of oil and vinegar. yum. but my new favorite way to enjoy them is in water. they sweeten and brighten it up just a bit and make it my new favorite bevearage. and its a great way to use them when you don't have the other ingredients and we all know how fast produce goes bad.
