blame lynette

It's all her fault.

Ever since reading Lynette's tantalizing post, I have been fantasizing about a Bacon and Tomato sandwich. Never mind the fact that tomatoes have demonized of late, or the whole low carb life I have been living these past three months. I have been leading a fantasy life with a sandwich.

And on Saturday, my first real Saturday off in months, I gave in. Fresh, relatively botulism free tomatoes from the Farmer's Market, thick bacon which I pan fried to perfection, Miracle Whip on trimmed sourdough toast, which incidentally was the debut performance of the new toaster purchased in....January. I guess I really don't eat much bread anymore.

And it was a superb indulgence. Every morsel was a holiday.



But not to become a habit. Don't worry, Janine.

And thanks, Lynette ;)

I'm not worried. I know you are strong and confession is good for the soul!

Sounds delicious! Since I started swimming again, carbs and I are back on healthy speaking terms. Still am backing off of sugar and starchy stuff, and most of my relationship with carbs is complex. Every once in a while I fall to temptation, and go with the easy bimbo sporting the paper and cellophane wrap, wreaking of cheap sour dough tang. It is weak, but we all need our moments of bliss...

Life without the occasional BLT isn't worth living my friend..

You too?

It was funny, I left a rather dismissive snort on her site saying that the ONLY way to eat one is with basil and garlic mayo. Though what did I make immediately after leaving the comment? A Miracle Whip special. And yes, it was damn good!
