Apologies (and BLEATs!)

I'm sorry I've been such an errant writer this past week. I have had two things against me:

1. The end of the month is an extra-lean time for us, which means cooking from the pantry and primarily making tried-and-true staples that I've already written about.

2. The weather has been gorgeous, and Chris and I have spent many exhausting hours working on our yard. When we bought this house we were blessed with a triple lot that was, unfortunately, covered in honeysuckle, ivy, and other nefarious vines.

And so, not as much cooking. I am, however, writing about the delicious dinner that we just had, and have big plans this week for more fun things, so don't give up on me yet. Until then, I leave you with my BLEATs.

What is a BLEAT? It's simply a Bacon, Lettuce (from the garden!), fried egg, avocado, and tomato sandwich, served up on toasted homemade bread. I made Lemon Avocado Mayo this time around, mashing avocado with lemon juice, mayonnaise, and salt and pepper to taste; and it was quite frankly the best sandwich topping I can think of. I think avocados are one of my most favorite foods. More to come!

Love the idea of the lemon avocado mayo. Yard work is creeping up on me too.

For your everyday fried egg sandwich, that looks amazing. We're attempting lettuce in our garden this year.. hope it looks as good as yours!

Lemon avacado mayo is an awesome idea that I will be stealing for sandwiches and hamburgers!

And sorry, but BLEAT just keeps cracking me up, evoking images of Ms. Ray.

You've reminded me of one of my favorite sandwich combos. Now all I need to do is find an avocado or two!
