My first foodie post from our new house….feels so fun…and yet so weird. I am still figuring out the best way to use this space. Still a ton to do…lots to share…so excited to share it with all of you!! Here is a great lil recipe to try out this weekend….

I am pretty sure that cucumber is the official veggie of summertime (along with the beloved tomato of course.) Rightly so I suppose…it grows rampant all season long….taste fabulous on a hot summer day…and you can make it look so stinkin cool too. Doesn’t this look so chic?? And I am sooooo not chic! :) My friends over at Martha Stewart ( that’s right, Martha herself…insert sarcasm…) sent me these adorbs plates from the Martha Stewart Collection…available exclusively at Macy’s. These remind me of Madmen for some reason…a bit mid century modern with just a touch of cuteness. Sidenote: Have you watched Madmen??….oh my goodness. This year is the final season….and I am going to start the entire show over from the beginning….it is just that good. The costume and set design are incredible. I digress….The collection is called Poppy….very fun and summery….go check it out at your local Macy’s:)

So here is how you put together these easy cucumber bites….it really couldn’t be simpler. You could place them on a cracker instead of rye toast….up to you.
