I love BLT’s in the summer. Tomatoes in the summer bring me pure happiness! Top that happiness with bacon and I might just start hovering above the ground because I’m so happy.
A few years ago I discovered a way to eat BLT’s several times during the week without anybody accusing me of eating only BLT’s. I found a BLT converted into a salad. BEST IDEA EVER!
I’d like to tell you that because this is a salad, it is 88% healthier than eating an actual BLT, but in fact, it is probably only 2.5% healthier because of the salad dressing. But the dressing is oh. so. good.
The croutons are crunchy and salty, the tomatoes are tangy and the bacon is well, bacon. How can you go wrong here, folks?
In other news, we are busy getting ready for a momentous event. Tomorrow the Strong Man is swimming across a lake in Northern Utah, Bear Lake. It is a 7 mile open-water race. And lucky me, I get to kayak next to him to make sure he doesn’t drown.
Because his mustache gets in his mouth when he swims, today is the day he cuts it off. He has been growing this mustache since last November and has just dealt with it bugging him during his training. But he doesn’t want to deal with it during the actual race. Before he cuts it off, we couldn’t resist having a family picture taken.
Aren’t we precious. This was really fun to take. Dr. Jones insisted on a fan despite that fact that we are obviously a family of outlaws. But she got the stare down. I’m kinda scared of her.
Wish us luck on the race! And go make a BLT salad! YAY SUMMER!
