What's for Lunch?

Have you noticed the good price on cucumbers and tomatoes these days? How about turning them into sandwiches for lunch?

Cucumber/Tomato Sandwiches
Spread two pieces of pumpernickel or rye bread* with cream cheese or a wedge of Laughing Cow. Layer one piece with slices of peeled cucumber, then a layer of tomato slices. Sprinkle with dill weed and top with the other piece of bread.

Along with some grapes, a few black bean corn chips and the baked pears from the September 28 blog, you have a tasty lunch.

Even though Fall is here, I recommend a tall glass of ice tea to accompany this lunch. Here's our secret for making perfect ice tea. We use 4 bags of store-brand black tea and one bag of Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Ice Tea in a 3-quart pitcher of cold water and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Enjoy your lunch!

*I'm wheat-free so I can eat these breads. But if you are gluten-free, you'll want to substitute the bread for something like Pumpernickel Bread by Gluten Free Life or EnerG's Onion Crackers. Either should be available at your local health food store.
