Preach not to others what they should eat, but eat as becomes you, and be silent. —-Epictetus

My son Jacob, who is in fifth grade, brought this recipe home.  Their class has been reading the BFG.  He thought this recipe might  be low carb.  I think it is, maybe just leave out the gherkins.  I think they won't add too much in the carb department, and will add MUCH to the flavor so I will leave them in.

6-8 Large cucumbers
4 cans of tuna fish
4-6 diced tomatoes
9-10 gherkins, finely chopped
9-10 Tablespoons mayonnaise
6-7 teaspoons poppy seeds
Salt and Pepper to taste

Peel, cut and hollow out the cucumbers.  Place in a container, standing on end, to drain juice.  Thoroughly drain the tuna fish and mix in the chopped tomatoes, gherkins, mayonnaise, and poppy seeds.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Using a teaspoon, fill cucumbers with the tuna fish mixture, packing it down.  Paint a little mayonnaise in the grooves on the outside of the cucumbers and carefully fill the grooves with poppy seeds.  Have fun with this one!
