DH and I are trying to lose weight, and I made the dumb mistake of going to the grocery store hungry last night. So what was my impluse hungry buy - a cucumber. No, I'm not joking. DH doesn't really care for them so they're a treat for me.

So then I thought... what can I do with this cucumber? Maybe a sandwich? Then this morning when I washed off the cucumber and apple... I had a vision. A vision of a delicious sandwich. And it was. Here's how you do it.

Ingredients: (Makes 2 sandwiches, so invite a friend over or half the ingredients and put the remaining apples/cukes in the fridge for tomorrow)
- 4 slices of your favorite bread (I used oatnut because it's my new bread obsession)
- 1 cucumber, sliced into 1/4 inch slices (peeled if you want, I like 'em with the skins)
- 1 apple, sliced into 1/4 inch slices/wedges (again, peeled if you want, I like 'em with the skins) **Make sure to toss them in a bit of lemon juice or they'll go brown!**
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, divided (or vegan soy-cheese equivalent - cheese or cheese-like product is optional)

- Distribute the sliced cucumbers on two slices of bread (you may have some left over, just eat 'em on the side... all depends on the size cuke you have)
- Distrubute apple slices on top of the sliced cucumber layer (again, you may have leftovers)
- Sprinkle 1 tbsp parmesan cheese on each sandwich (if you want!)
- Cover the sandwiches with the other slices of bread. Serve with your favorite sandwich side.

I would imagine that this would be tasty with a dash of plain black pepper and/or cinnamon as well. If you try this - let me know!

Discussing with my good IRL friend KimberlyPye about what a good spread would be... we're thinking cream or cottage cheese whipped together with a dash of vanilla extract, basil, black pepper, and garlic powder would make a good spread for the sammich. Other thoughts?
