This Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwich is one of my FAVORITE sandwiches from childhood. Super simple, but so tasty! Great lunch to serve for guests.
I think “vacation” should be renamed “the calm before the storm.” I can think of a handful of times when chaos has struck directly following vacation. Dan and I had such a perfect vacation last week. I’ve found myself daydreaming about being back at that lovely resort with sounds of waterfalls and birds filling my very relaxed ears.
This week has been a wee bit trying. A new puppy joined our family and if you’ve ever spent ten minutes around a puppy, you know that this is not a relaxing thing. We were managing Buddy just fine until Dan went down with sickness AND a strange leg infection/rash, which has kept him off his feet. Next week will be better. Yes. It. Will.
And lucky me, I have the ingredients for this simple and delish little sandwich that was a childhood favorite. My mom made Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches for me all the time at my request. Love ’em! I plan to gobble one down today. I may just eat it as fast as our precious Buddy puts away a serving of his dog food. The first time I watched him eat I was amazed! Wow, Bud.
HOW TO MAKE CUCUMBER CREAM CHEESE SANDWICHES
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Place the bread on a flat surface. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly between them, spreading evenly. Divide cucumbers between two slices and sprinkle seasoning salt over the tops. Top with the remaining bread slices, cream cheese face down. Cut sandwiches in half and serve!
