Summer’s heat sucks my energy and makes me cranky, but my summer garden inspires me.

I am inundated with cucumbers this year. Absolutely positively inundated. I cannot keep up! From only 2 plants, I’ve been harvesting many many cucumbers every day. And coming up with new and different ways to enjoy them.

I could have served this blended cucumber creation in a bowl and called it a cold soup, but what fun would that have been? A cucumber smoothie sounds so much more interesting. I threw some sorrel in because I grew it for the first time this year and I like it’s refreshingly sour flavor, but you could also try this with a handful of mint or basil, I think.

Since I’ve been on antibiotics for a couple of weeks for Lyme disease, I eat plain yogurt and other foods that are high in probiotics as often as I can. If you don’t eat dairy, some coconut milk might be nice in here.
