Who Needs Meat When You Have Cucumbers?
I just thought I would share my wife's moment of brilliance. We have been buying the Field Roast mushroom deli slices for some time now, and while I think they are OK, I have never gotten excited about them, that is until my recent sandwich. Anita made a sandwich with the deli slices, raw onions, raw spinach, and cucumber slices. It was not until I had this sandwich did I realize what had been missing in the deli slices for me: textural resistance. The cucumber takes care of that, so the next time I get one of those obnoxious questions about how I replace meat in my diet, I'm going to say cucumbers.
