In Honor of the BLT

This time of year some unusual things start to happen around our household.  Even though we haven't used paper towels regularly for years, we start to keep them on hand (to soak up bacon grease), our cast iron skillet doesn't even get put away but rather stays out on the burner (that skillet fries up bacon like no other!) and white bread is regularly bought along side our regular wheat bread.  It's BLT season and we can't get enough!

This year, it's thrilling to be able to use our own homegrown Brandywine tomatoes on our BLT's! They are so, so good.

In order to make the most of our BLT experience I've made our own mayonnaise, which for the record is easy and really, really good,  and sought out local bacon.  The bacon was a bit of a disappointment as both Bryce and I thought it tasted like fried ham rather than bacon.  Or is that what bacon is actually supposed to taste like?  We are unsure and on the fence about it.  But there is no denying that we love a good BLT and have enjoyed them immensely this season! What are you enjoying this season?

  1. Anna, Have you tried Garfield Smokehouse in NH for bacon? Delicious!! We get some every Christmas and the first bite is always heavenly.
