1 drop lemon juice (few drops)
3 tbsp heavy cream
1 white pepper to taste
2 seedless english cucumbers
1 garnish watercress leaf(opt)
From Daniel's Restaurant. (Makes approximately 40 hor d'oeuvres)
Combine the mousse ingredients in the bowl of food processor and blend
until the mixture is smooth. Chill at least 30 minutes. Cut each
cucumber crosswise into approximately 20 slices, each slightly less
than 1/4" thick. Cucumbers can also be peeled, striated with fork
tines or cut into decorative shapes with biscuit cutters. Assemble
hor d'oeuvres no more than an hour before serving by softening the
mousse with a wooden spoon and putting it in a pastry bag with a leaf
tip. Pipe mousse on top of each cucumber slice and garnish with a
small watercress leaf.
NOTE: If you prefer, you can slice the cucumbers a bit thicker than
1/4" and make a small hollow for the filling in the center of the
slice with a melon-ball scoop.

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you can buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware jar or container.
* Know what is in your food
Don't trust food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the package. A good number of are only slightly less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.
