It may have taken a whole two months – almost the entire summer – but I’m getting the hang of planning meals. That is, taking things you make and using them the next day for something else entirely different! Or somewhat different. Which leads me to my Bacon Lettuce Tomato Guacamole Sandwich
I had my tomatoes left over from yesterday (that went into my guac) and of course the guacamole from yesterday. I stole a piece of romaine from Rebecca, and I was all set! I had an entire package of bacon that I had to thaw, so I just went ahead and fried it all up and offered out the leftovers. People can’t seem to turn down a piece of bacon (excepting our vegetarians). I had just enough left to play with when I cook dinner tonight.
My guacamole added an interesting kick to a classic. It added the texture that’s so pleasing in the BLTA with some limey, cilantroy, peppery goodness. Speaking of texture, that’s my favorite part of a BLT(A/G). Slightly toasted bread, crispy lettuce, cool tomatoes, salty crispy/chewy bacon, and creamy avocado/guacamole.
To me, texture is VERY important in my food. It can completely make or destroy something for me that’s otherwise only “ok”. This sandwich? Well beyond “ok”.
And now I need to get back to shuffling through my references about the anatomy of the Aedes aegypti alimentary canal.
