Minted zucchini tagliatelle with cucumbers and lemon

It's Friday, and I wanted to announce that chivalry is not completely dead.  I was struggling with a suitcase at the railway station this morning, and a young man in his twenties asked me if I was alright.  I said that I was (I wasn't really), but if I had said no, it sounds as if he would have gladly helped me to lift it up the stairs.  Thank you kind sir, you made my day.  The simple act of asking me if I was alright is such a rare thing in the hurly burly of city life, and I appreciate it. 

This week's FFwD recipe was minted zucchini tagliatelle with cucumbers and lemon.  It is not actually pasta, as I first thought - it is thin strips of zucchini with chunks of cucumber in a tangy dressing.

I don't have much to say about this - I really didn't like it much, so I stir fried it and ate it as a warm side.
