Fun Friday: Cucumber Circle

A greek restaurant served our gluten free table the most beautiful circle of cucumbers instead of crackers. The presentation inspired me to create my own cucumber circle at home. I had a busy day yesterday--speaking at Sinergia on How to Implement a Gluten Free Diet so I prepared a simple dinner of filet, homemade almond crackers, my new favorite thing--a cucumber circle, and the chocolate chip cookies made with garbanzo bean and fava bean flour (which I had demonstrated at Sinergia.)

My son had his 100th day of kindergarten the other day and they class celebrated by making projects that were about 100. He made a 100 shape out of legos. I am thinking with three cucumbers (one line and two circles) you would have a nice 100 cucumber project. The possibilities are endless. And the best part, is it really takes about 3 minutes.
