Mother Lode of Cucumber Recipes

I picked 3 more cucumbers this morning, which makes about 15 waiting to be eaten in my crisper drawer. Luckily, I just found this great resource:
http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/~bcohen/cucumbers/recipes/
I've never imagined so many things you could do with cucumbers! Everything from cucumber limeade to sandwiches to soups and even hot dinners! The recipes aren't tested or anything (and many not vegan) but there sure are a LOT of them and it has given me some great ideas.

Plus, it says the world's record for largest cucumber is 59 lbs. WHAT?!?! 59 lbs! Wow.

I'm really liking the limeade idea. Not sure what I'm going to make yet though. Will update this post with a pic when I figure it out!

While I'm at it, here's a nice collection of borage recipes too:

God - I've had a shitty harvest from my Cukes this year. The packet said they were Dutch Cucumbers but they are so obviously NOT.
They are the little fat ones that I don't really like as much as the Dutch ones.
Glad you've had a good haul - 15 is a LOT of Cukes.

Well don't feel bad- I also planted marketmore cucumbers (long thing salad style) and they haven't produced one single cuke yet. I think they got overshadowed by carrots I planted too close and are still just tiny little things. Oh well, I guess we win some and lose some, what can you do.
