I have been looking forward to this day since the moment we planted our garden...actually, much longer than that, since last year, possibly even before that.
The first B.L.T.'s! Whoever invented this perfect combination of lightly toasted bread, creamy mayonnaise (NOT Miracle-corn-syrup-unreal-sickly-weird-whip), crisp bacon, light lettuce and perfectly ripe tomatoes deserves a major award. Of course, a B.L.T. is no more than a sandwich unless it has homegrown, vine-ripened (truly vine-ripened, not just chopped off with some stem attached) tomatoes on it. When you have the right tomatoes, and the bacon is perfectly cooked, and the bread is still slightly warm from the toaster.....oh man, this is one of my favorite summer treats; perhaps it IS my favorite. The only thing that could make it better would be to serve it alongside some hot corn on the cob and a tall fresh raspberry shake. As you can tell, I'm not opinionated on this sandwich at all, am I?
I think I need to go buy more bacon...even though I ate 2 sandwiches for dinner tonight, they still sound good.
