Dash lemon juice
1 tbsp. thyme & oregano
Generous handful fresh parsley, removing most of stems

In blender/food processor, combine in small batches the cucumbers, garlic, onion, both soups and parsley. (Pre-chopping makes the first 3 ingredients blend better.)

Garnish with a few chopped chives, parsley, a slice of lemon, or a couple of the above. Keeps well (if you can keep your family's hands off!). Yield: 2 quarts.

Cool cake in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Split cake layers in half horizontally to make 4 layers. Make fine crumbs using 1 cake layer; set crumbs aside. Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Place 1 cake layer on cake platter; spread with 1 cup whipped cream and top with 3/4 cup cherry pie filling. Repeat with second layer and then top with third cake layer. Frost sides and top with whipped cream, reserving a small amount for garnish. Pat cake crumbs generously around sides of cake (there may be leftover cake crumbs).
