Cool as a Cucumber

Usually I keep some sliced english cucumbers (you know the long ones wrapped in plastic?) in a Ziploc bag in the fridge for snacking and my salads through the week. I like the english version because I find them to be crunchier than regular cucumbers, and the skin does not have that waxy coating that the regular ones do. So last week as I was munching away, it came to me....This would make the perfect teether! That and she was pawing to get them out of my hands :) So I gave her a slice and she went to town. Ever since then Miss M has been hooked!

It really is smart. They are cold, the perfect size, and as long as you slice them thick enough and on a slight angle, they can gnaw at them for quite a while! Try it!
