Time for a BLT!!

It’s well into Spring here in East Tennessee...  The temperature yesterday was just pushing 70 and the skies were blue… Time to hit the road!  Laurie and I have been having a particular craving for some time now.  We needed our Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich fix!  So we went shopping in the morning, picking up the key ingredients we needed to put together a couple of great BLT’s!

So, here’s Laurie’s dinner from yesterday …not too bad looking is it!?

That’s Benton’s Bacon on that BLT!  It can’t be beat… We topped that bacon with fresh lettuce directly from the gardens of the Mennonite Community down in Delano Tennessee…great produce!  We had to use grocery store tomatoes…but soon we’ll be able to step it up a notch with the heirloom tomatoes that really provide the ultimate finish to this sandwich.

The only difference between Laurie’s BLT and mine was the bread… Hers was the English Muffin Bread from VG’s Bakery in Farragut Tennessee and mine was from Food Lion’s in-store bakery.  The important thing is that we scratched our itch…had those BLT’s that we’d been craving…and all is well with the world! 


  1. There may be a sandwich better than a BLT, but I can't think of one. I enjoyed your Charleston boat tour.

  2. They look wonderful. I'm glad you were able to get good tomatoes at this time of year. Both Bob and I love these. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary
