    **Mandy**'s Note:

    From my high school home economics book, I'd never heard of using cucumber in a cooked dish and my garden is going crazy at the moment with them so thought I'd give it a go. I think it's supposed to be a side dish but I think it's better as a sauce, I used it on top of some broccoli but I think it would be great with corned beef.

      Made as directed and served with corned beef as suggested. I really liked this recipe as did our son with the corned beef. My DH, who loves corned beef, didn't care for the Creamed Cucumber at all. I was a little confused with steps 1 & 2 because when I tossed and heated the cukes and carrots into the saucepan for the 3 minutes there was no resulting liquid to add to the milk, so I just went ahead and used the 1/2 cup milk. I would definitely make this again as it's such an easy and fresh recipe! Thanks, Mandy! Made for AKRS 65, Group 2.
