cucumber caprese

 These pictures are my first attempt at using a tripod.  After leaving {escaping} work a little early today I scrambled to Costco to find dinner fixings...Poor Sophie had frozen pizza and grilled cheese for dinner the last two nights.  I was pleasantly surprised to find mozzerella di bufula and decided to make this riff on a Caprese salad.  The addition of cucumbers meant that Sophie would actually would have a salad instead of just cheese with pesto. No real recipe--just combined grape tomatoes, English cucumbers with cheese and pesto.  Please note the beautifully cooked medium rare steak in the foreground--Sophie microwaved her portion into jerky.
