Cucumber salad

I improvised a cucumber salad for Jason's holiday BBQ today and I came out really well, so I thought I'd record the details here.

Dice / slice small:
6 small persian cucumbers
2 picking cucumbers
1 avocado
1 big king trumpet mushroom (mostly for texture)
1 large green onion

I mixed up the dressing in a bowl by eyeballing the ratios, so the quantities here are just a guess. Taste and adjust!
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons S & B chili oil with crunchy garlic (taberu rayu)

Jason made lots of tasty barbecued stuff and we hung out with bears & played some CAH and a game of Citadels. Made a later evening of it than we'd expected to, so that's good.

The only other thing I got done today was some grocery shopping. I needed some downtime after spending all day prepping and then running Star Wars. But it was a good session (especially given how many details I didn't get around to prepping!) after a bit of a hiatus, and I have lots of material left over for next time.
