Oh boy, the saddest thing about summer ending is to think about saying goodbye to sun warmed tomatoes, fresh from the garden.
Farmers' markets have been filled with the red globes in all sizes, from big, fat ones to little rounds of sweetness.
Bacon, lettuce and tomato (BLT) sandwiches as well as BLT salads, minus bread, are both delish.
Avocado slices make a nice addition to either sandwiches or salads.
The typical spread to put on BLTs is mayonnaise.
Around here, we use the lighter version and it seems to be just as delicious as the full fat mayo.
Here's also a word about breakfast sausage links.
So many times when cooked, they became skinny and tough. They sure didn't look like the links on the cover of the package.
Well, here's the secret to getting nice, chubby links to dip into your breakfast eggs.
Put the links in a frying pan with water and COVER. Cook this way for five minutes or so, then lift the color and let the links brown a bit.
Voila! Chubby little links that are nice and juicy, too.
So there you have it. BLT sandwiches, BLT salads and fat sausage links. All yummy!
One last note. Slice up a lemon and a lime, place in a pitcher, fill with water and keep it in the refrigerator at all times.
We've had pitcher in the fridgie all summer long, replacing the lemon and lime every couple of days and replenishing the water daily.
Can't beat it as a drink to accompany meals or to drink whenever hunger strikes between meals!
WHICH DO YOU PREFER, BACON, SAUSAGES. OR NEITHER?
