Cucumber Snackers

This is a really easy recipe and I do not really have to post the directions or ingredients because it is so simple!  It is really healthy and low carb.  You take one cucumber, peel the outside skin.  Then core the seeds with a melon baller.  Spread some Neufchatel cheese (lower fat and calories than regular cream cheese) in the middle and then roll up some turkey slices and put in the middle.  Tada!  Easy snack for you, your kids, or finger food for a party!  You can also use other sandwich meats if you prefer.
