My favorite recipe blogger, Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen, brought this dish to my house last summer for my Women’s Bible Study.  She co-led the study and of course had treats in hand every week as she entered my house.  Her dishes were always empty when she left!  Here’s one recipe I enjoyed and it was SO pretty!

  1. To ditch the seeds in the middle of the cucumber, you can use a carrot peeler, cutting lengthwise on your peeled (or unpeeled once you get the first two or so strips off for a spiffy green edge trim) and accordion the long thin strip you create on top of the creme mix! To use the entire cucumber first slice it in half lengthwise, and half it’s width to make manageable strips. Once one side gets to the seeds you flip the cuke to the opposite side. If you layer back and forth like you would do with sandwich meat it looks very fancy! Try for soooooper thin nearly translucent slices for uber elegantia!

    The dressing mix looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it!

  2. What lovely sandwiches! Cucumber sandwiches are a classic with afternoon tea here in the UK, but they are often just served on white bread with salt and pepper. Janelle’s version looks so delicious with the flavoured cream cheese and that wonderful bread. They look so pretty open faced as well!

  3. En mi corazón hay turbación, aunque tambien fe, debil por las circunstancias que han venido, si, pero aún me queda la esperanza, que dice El Señor no averguenza. Porque tengo confianza en El, y en sus promesas que son fieles y verdaderas. Desde hace tres años vengo luchando con un hijo uno de los menores (trillizo) el cual ya tiene 28 años, criado a los pies del Señor de una familia de creyentes x más de 40 años, el cual siempre habia sido muy consagrado al Señor, servidor, adorador, pastor de jóvnes, director de alabanza. Y ahora el enemigo le ha robado su identidad y se ha autoproclamada para tristeza y verguenza de mi familia más intima como homosexual. El dice haberse sentido asi desde niño, me ha confesado que ha buscado el solo asistencia médica, (sicologos) y tambien le ha orado mucho al Señor. Nosotros lo hemos confrontado con amor, hemos orado, le hemos ungido con aceite, le hemos exhortado, he estado ayunando por él. Pero en vez de dar resultado, pareciera que fuera todo inútil. Pues desde Diciembre apareció en el escenario un señor de 50 añoños cubano, quien deserto de una misión médica en Venezuela, ayudado por mi hijo, quien se tomo a pecho el ayudarle y se ha venido dejando influenciar de este señor quien lo manipula sentimentalmente, y del cual mi hijo ha anunciado se ha enamorado. Al punto de que se fue a vivir con el . Ës por eso que con toda humildad y respeto les ruego a este precioso ministerio me ayuden en oración, y si tienen información o material que ayude en este caso, me lo envien por favor. Creo en el Señor y sé que el obrará un milagro. no se cuándo, no se Cómo. Pero si se Que el tiene el Control. Solo necesito que El me ayude en mi fe, me robustezca y me fortalezca en tan dura prueba. Dios le bendiga. Gracias de antemano. Un abrazo desde un pueblito cerca de Caracas, Venezuela. Soy de nacionalidad Colombiana madre de 6 hijos y abuela de casi 8 nietos, (dos vienen en camino) con la ayuda de Dios.

  4. These will be perfect for a bridal shower that I will be going to which is coming up in a couple weeks! Thanks for posting this! Don’t you just love fancy girl food? 🙂

  5. These are the BEST sandwiches! Makes you want to go to Lowe’s and stick a cucumber plant in the ground so you can enjoy them fresh from the garden all summer long.

  6. Courtney, I just subscribed to your site hoping to jump into the Proverbs 31 study (a friend told me about it.) I know I am coming in a little late, but hoping to jump right in. However, I’m having trouble downloading the study guide. All of the links (from your e-mail as well as one my friend sent me) go to a blank page. Can you help me out?


  7. This looks so refreshing, we have a baby shower this weekend for my daughter ( she’s having twins } and they will be a great addition to the menu. Thanks so much for sharing !

  8. Courtney,
    I found your websites today while googling Proverbs 31 woman. This site is a godsend to me! I already have the Proverbs 31 reading schedule printed out and am trying to join a GMG group for the summer. Thank you for such a great site! It’s organized so well, and everything is relevant to me. I am so glad I found it, it’s just what I need in my life.
