blt minus b & l












this may seem a little on the copycatish side.
they do say that is the highest form of flattery.
but i also thought we could start a revolution or rebellion, together.
whichever suits your personality.
let' s no longer accept the society norm of the blt.
let's get rid of the fat, bacon.
let's get rid of the tasteless, lettuce.
LET'S STICK WITH THE HOME GROWN, JUICY, FLAVOURFUL, SUCCULENT, HEIRLOOM TOMATO SANDWICH.
(salmonella need not apply)
sweet tea and kettle chips are a nice addition.

If you buy your tomatoes, like I do, you can add them to the "tasteless" category along with the lettuce...which leaves me with bread and mayo. Ick. :o)

Hey, you're talking about my very most favorite sandwich now! I love, love, love BLTs! It is the combo that makes is so delish! I can eat plenty of tomato sandwiches too, and especially with the home grown variety, but give me the 'creme de la creme' any day by adding some yummy bacon & crisp lettuce. MMM, I wish I could have one right now ;-)

PS - your produce looks very tasty!

Heirloom tomatoes, my greatest addiction. Cherokee purple, my favorite.

Mine aren't ripe yet so yours were a little hard to look at. I felt this overwhelming urge to claw at the screen trying to grab just one juicy, tender, ripe tomato. Ahhh...
