Summer Bounty – Bacon Lettuce and Tomatoes

The best part about living back in Kansas City is that I can get really good summer produce.  Every Saturday I go to the Farmers Market in Overland Park and buy some yummy veggies and fruits.  Right now is peak season for peaches and tomatoes – corn is pretty good, too.  A few weeks ago it was all about the blackberries, but that’s over.

 

The Farmers Market is especially important because, due to heat and drought, my tomato plants never really bore much fruit.  I am not ready to become a full-time farmer.

 

This afternoon I fixed my favorite summer meal – one that I’ve been eating almost daily for the past two weeks – a Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich!  Once I move to Bangkok, I suppose that I’ll trade this in for a BBT – Bacon, Basil, and Tomato.  There is a recipe in this month’s issue of Sunset magazine.

 

Artfully arranged, don’t you think?

  1. Food is the biggest double-edged sword I can think of. It can keep you healthy and alive, but it can also make you plump and a potential corpse from obesity.I’m afraid of being steered toward the latter. Keep that sandwich away from me!
