Vicki's Cucumber Bread

Like an open faced tea sandwich, these cucumber bread bites are a great appetizer especially in the spring and summer. Fresh, simple and great for making a bit ahead!



   This cracks me up every time I think about it!  It was started 9? years ago.  That seems crazy that is has been that long!  I was living in Springfield at the time and I wasn't planning to come home for Easter that year.  So, I spent the weekend with my friend Tisha and her cute little baby Mason (who is now almost as tall as me!)




   We went out the night before Easter and there was this whole thing.  I won't go into the details, but it still makes me laugh.  I'll just leave it at we didn't get much sleep and we weren't looking or feeling our finest on Easter morning.  It was the perfect way to meet a family full of strangers!



   We were meeting our "Springfield mom" and her in-laws to spend the day.  We got there and she had a tray of this cucumber bread.  Tish and I about polished it off!  We have made it regularly since.  Whenever Tish came to one of my BBQs, this is what she brought.  It brings back a lot of good (and some really funny) memories!

    1. I was thinking it might be fun to do a "tea party" type girls night some time! Have cute "girly" finger foods on china and these would be fun for that too!
