I am currently in upstate New York in a rather secluded area where it is easy to forget that we are in the midst of summer. With rain storms every other day, and all of my meals being prepared for me, I miss the farmers markets, garden fresh tomatoes and zucchinis, and hot summer days in California Now that it is almost mid August, while I am sad to leave my awesome summer job, I am excited to get back and soak up the last bits of my California summer and then head into the wonderful fall.
Until I make it back to Cali, let me just share my oh so fond memories of the first summer BLaTs we ate to celebrate our first crop of tomatoes…
I am going to need a few more of these before the end of the season and then I will be able to welcome back pumpkins and apples and cinnamon and all things fall.
We made our BLTs with this fully cooked bacon from Trader Joes. (I just threw it on a grill pan for a few minutes and then dinner was ready!) Yum…and no nitrates!
