HURRICANE IRENE'S BAKED CUCUMBERS

This dish gets its namesake from the storm expected to wreck havoc along the eastern seaboard.

Deceptively easy to make, I needed an easy and quick idea for the cucumbers I was forced to harvest from my garden before the storm barreled through.

Ideal as a light lunch or appetizer; perfected further if you are sitting at your kitchen table with a glass of wine and a good magazine, gazing out the window as your husband battles the storm's ferocity, scurrying to secure the patio furniture and potted plants.
