One of the things my mum often had on the table was a kind of homemade pickle. She said it would help me hydrate so that I could go back out and throw a ball against the church wall next door. That was about as close to a church that I got as a kid.
With my dinner for one, I made myself some of these pickles with a few of the leftover cucumbers that I had. It is nothing fancy but for all the mums with kids in a rush out in the blog world, these are easy treats! Make sure the kids know they will help hydrate you.
Thank you to my mum for all the pickles and keeping my hydrated.
1 small cucumber
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of dill
a pinch of sugar
Slice the cucumbers into chip sizes. In a bowl, add all ingredients and toss the cucumbers into the dressing. Let stand for about 30 minutes.
