When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When your friend gives you tomatoes from her garden, you make BLTs. Oh, let's see, what other fun with expressions can we exhaust? How about that really burns my bacon. As in, it's the most irratating thing in the world. The biggest catastrophe ever. Burning bacon. Especially when you are making BLTs.
Where was I?
Oh, right, I was just about to give you some helpful tips on how to make delicious BLTs. An introduction to making BLTs? Does that seem too....elementary? Well, here's my first tip.
Tip #1: Do not burn the bacon. As you can see from the photo above, that's just what I did. I burned my bacon. Literally.
Tip #2: Procure delicious tomatoes from friend's garden. (Still not helpful?)
Tip #3: Get creative with your mayo. Add a few generous squirts of the Rooster to a few tablespoons of mayo, mix, taste, adjust to the spice level you are comfortable with.
Tip #4: Do not eat all the bacon before assembling.
