Summertime - Marinating Cucumbers and Onions
Last night we made a Chicago style grilled hotdogs for dinner. I started with 8 for $2.29 Aldi's Angus beef hot dogs grilled in a hot pan on the stove (raining outside, so didn't use the gas grill).
Grilled the buns in a bit of butter. Chopped a tomato, green pepper, sweet pickes and added "1 hour quick marinated cucumers and onion slices." Here's how. I chopped up the last 10 bread and butter pickles and saved the juice. Sliced one half of a large cucumber, and one half of a white onion. Stuffed 'em into the pickle juice for an hour.
And, we're having Lemon Pie. Jon will take one to work, and we'll eat the other one.
The best part of being retired is having time to cook, bake, and go to the Fitness Center.
