Busy Weekend BLT

Well, we are back after a long weekend away in the mountains. We've been to this spot before and we snagged a prime camping spot that fit all four parties/tents that attended. We've been meaning to do an entry on camping food, because we love some of the things we do, but unfortunately, we've never gotten good pictures of anything we make! We'll have to work on that the next time we go!
Below is a view from the edge of the Colorado Plateau, its called the Mogollon Rim. It's a great cliff that cuts across central Arizona and has spectacular views.

When we got home I had a ripe tomato that had sat on the counter all weekend - it was almost spoiled. We had plenty of bacon leftover (I know... but you can't go camping without bacon!)... and I, as always after a camping weekend, wasn't in the mood to cook so we made BLTs.
Mmm. What can be more perfect that a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich? Salty bacon, creamy mayonnaise, crispy lettuce and juicy, meaty tomato slices. Daniel's not big on the tomatoes, so he just had a BL :)
Before I begin making my sandwichs I'll pour a tall glass of milk and set it inside the freezer to wait. I toasted the bread, fried up the bacon, sliced the tomato and gathered lettuce. After I spread some mayo on my toast, I layer on the bacon, then the tomato slices, the lettuce, and finally the other slice of toasted bread. By now, my milk will just have a nice frosty feel to it. I sit down to my meal and take my first bite. Heaven between two slices of bread.

Look for more this week on our last BBQ of the summer (Happy Fall everyone!), with some Baby Back Ribs and our favorite BBQ sauce.Stumble Upon Toolbar

Welcome back Corinne. I'm glad that you had a great time. I've never been to camp before. Must really be fun. Your toast is soooo good.

I would love to see some camping recipes. We go camping a lot in the summer. Your sandwich looks great. If you like pepper jelly, it's great on BLTs. Exspecially if you mix it with cream cheese! :)

I like that Daniel just has BLs. In our house, the norm is BTs...yummy. You're now responsible for a bacon sandwich craving!

That view is spectacular Corinne! Makes me wish I was in one of the four tents. BLT (or BL ;)) should be crown as the no 1 choice when one isn't in the mood to cook.
