Peanut-Noodle Salad

Nothing particularly special to see here. A basic peanut sauce over some cucumber (from the farm! god I love the farm!) and noodles. I don't think I'd make it again but it was a nice, quick dinner. I didn't bother refrigerating it because I was hungry, so it took all of 8 minutes to prepare (for the pasta to boil)!
