I'm a pop culture geek, married to a non-geek, "normie" guy. I also like cooking and crafts. My own crochet patterns posted here. Please be respectful of my work and keep in mind that most of those crochet patterns have only been made once or twice. If you find a mistake, let me know. If you make something, please send me a link back.
If this blog still isn't enough of me for you, check Geek Crafts for even more of me on Saturdays under AmyLynn98, or find me on Twitter at @JediAmyLynn98.

Cucumbers in Vinegar
I got a couple cucumbers from Nicole the Knitter. My own cukes didn't do a damn thing in the pot they were planted in, except grow green and not produce anything. Nicole plants ONE seed in the ground and it ends up looking like something out of "Little Shop of Horrors."
1small sliced onion--I left this out and instead, went heavy on the garlic.
1 -2 diced garlic clove
Put cucumbers, garlic, and onion in a bowl. Pour in vinegar and water until covering cucumbers, at a 3-1 ratio between vinegar and water (3 parts vinegar for every part water). Allow to marinate overnight before serving.
It smelled really good, and I actually left this in the frig for two nights before getting into them.
They are good, but they still have that good cucumber crunch with that sharp vinegar bite to them...but they do not make good "pickles."
