Have You Ever Juiced a Cucumber?

We had an internet outage, but thanks to companies that work Saturday and Sunday we are back in business. 

Step 1: Book carpet cleaning as part of our move out requirements.  Good luck getting toddler food reject splatters out of this carpet Sears!

Step 2: Find this recipe for dinner. I modified almost everything, but it came out muy excellente.

Step 3: Write this post.

Less than one month until moving day.  Movers don't move liquids (especially open ones) and only the cool ones move open cooking items like flour, sugar, etc.   That means we are in full blown use everything we have mode. 

I was looking for a cucumber martini recipe and found this one that is very tasty.  The drink reminds me of summer!  Yes, I have summer all year in central Florida, but that is not the point.  I still want to celebrate it.  Give it a try if you have the winter blahs.   The key ingredient is cucumber puree/juice. 

Peel the cucumber, chop it into chunks, put it in a blender or food processor with a little bit of water and blend until smooth.   Strain the liquid out and you have some magical cucumber juice that you can keep in the fridge for a few days.

I had plenty of extra cucumber juice after martini night, so I started to mix it into my water during the day.  Cucumber and lime juice...good.  Cucumber and sliced strawberries in water....good.  Cucumber juice with seltzer/sparkling water...great!

The cucumber martini was so good, it's worth all the work to juice it. We should try to squeeze in another martini night before the thing that isn't happening happens.
