Cool As The Proverbial Cucumber

The perfect summer lunch for a day that dawned clear as a bell, built the heat by 11am and promised to be even hotter in the afternoon. I had just returned from errands in the interior of Marin County where it gets really hot during the summer and wanted a light but tasty lunch.

Cucumber sandwich on plain white bread sliced as thinly as possible with the Slice-a-Slice, spread with a dab of mayonnaise and studded with thick slices of peeled cucumber.

To drink, the chamomile-mint tea I learned how to make last year - cooling and delicious. Sat down with a good book as I nibbled my way through a favorite summertime treat.

Ohgah, that Slice a Slice device is glorious. You really own one? I couldn't even find one on eBay. (Although I imagine they pop up now and then.)
Commercial gluten-free bread is presliced, and in fat slabs, as you'd expect.
Such a pwetty widdle samwidge.

Cookiecrumb, it was a legacy from my mother - I lifted it from her kitchen after she went to heaven. :-)

Julie, yes, Marin gets hot almost every day, as long as you're a mile or five away from the bay. Sometimes, I go there just for the warmth!

Cookiecrumb, holy cow, can that be true?? I guess we qualify as old pals, then.
