BLT's...A Gift From My Neighbor's Garden

I can’t resist a good BLT in the summer. When I’m trying to reduce the amount of food that I am eating, the first thing I cut back on is the bread. I use very thin slices. It’s the painless way to eliminate calories and let the taste of the fresh vegetables approach you.

I ransacked my neighbor’s garden - the one we planted together. I will admit the most I’ve done this summer is reap the benefits of having really good fruits and vegetables. She’s done all the work. Ask her and she says that she provides the veggies and I cook.

She thinks’ it works… especially when she and her husband are sitting in the garden drinking chardonnay and I’m flipping burgers over a their hot grill.

That’s the price I have to pay to get fresh produce. SO WORTH IT…especially when I see her in our garden weeding and cursing the bugs.

Bon Appetit!
