Cucumber Sandwiches and Otis Redding

I'm obsessed with these two things presently.

You wouldn't think that they go together splendidly but in fact - they do. You can use the cucumber as a microphone. Or a spoon... or pretty much anything in the kitchen. Plus, somehow everything tastes better when you cook it to music (and drink wine the entire time).
Having a tea party tomorrow a.m. Yeah that's right. Tea and cucumber sandwiches. And Otis Redding. And champagne. And I'm dressing like a 40's housewife. This is how I entertain myself these days.

I've made cucumber sandwiches in the past with sliced avocado and a little lemon juice. Delish!

Hmmmm. That might be good but I think I'd have to mash the avocado and use it like a spread.

You're totally invited to the next craft luncheon dude.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I'm an "house idiot," too.

Raise a cup of russian herbal tea (what, you don't have the recipe? I concocted it fine drizzly winter morning...) Had LOADS of fun doing it.

Gimme recipe Empress. I assume it uses vodka? hmm?
