Happy Thursday!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I am so ready for the weekend.  I have a relaxing night tonight hanging out with a doctor, attorney and hot shot from D.C..  Okay, fine I have a relaxing night hanging out with my tv.  You can’t judge me if I don’t judge you!  Moving on, last night I opened my fridge and saw two cucumbers that were going to go bad soon.  So I googled cucumber recipes and found this recipe for a cucumber salad.

This recipe is filled with cucumbers, sour cream, dill and sugar.  You probably don’t know that I am OBSESSED with pickles.  Like buy me a jar of Claussen’s and make me eat them in a night.  I won’t be mad.  They are always chilled and never heated and they are spectacular.  Ok, so this recipe does have vinegar, so if you hate vinegar this recipe may not be for you.  But if you are friendly acquaintances then give this a try.  It is super refreshing and reminds me of summer.  Wahhhhh, will it ever be warm again?!  Anyways, I adjusted the original recipe a little bit with adding a little bit more sugar as I thought is was a little too vinegar-y (I am making that a word!).  I also choose to make mine a little bit more creamy than the original recipe just to make life more exciting.  If you want it to be less creamy, just add more cucumbers!  Enjoy!
