I am sooooo excited!!! I just picked a nice batch of tomatoes from the garden. If you remember, last year I did not harvest one tomato. I have been anticipating this day for a long time.
I was trying to think how to use them . . . besides just sitting down in the garden and having one! I had purchased some bacon in anticipation of the big day. So, of course, I thought a BLT was the logical choice. Then I walked past my basil area and saw it needed to be picked too. On my way to the kitchen, I came up with this brilliant idea . . a little change to the ole BLT.
Maybe some of you might think one shouldn’t mess with the BLT, but I am an adventurous type (in the kitchen anyway). Come dinner time, I constructed a brand new sandwich in our home . . . . . the BMTB.
The BMTB stands for bacon, mozzarella, tomato and basil sandwich!! Maybe you have already thought of this, but I hadn’t. I toasted some whole wheat bread, lathered on a little bit of mayo, and then added some wonderful bacon, thick slices of fresh mozzarella, a juicy slice of tomato, and topped it off with fresh basil leaves!!
Let me tell you – I may never go back again. Either way, BLT or BMTB, a fresh tomato is hard to beat!!
Enjoy the fresh produce in your area as it comes ripe!!
