BLAT's and Award


BLAT's are one of my favorites in the summer.  It isn't traditional I know.  People think I am strange, and don't know what I am talking about.  But the A is for Avocado!  It goes perfect on a BLT.  But then it really isn't a BLT anymore is it? So I have to call it a BLAT.  Fresh garden tomatoes, buttery avocados, crispy lettuce, salty bacon all on toasted bread....delicious!  Serve with sliced cucumbers from the garden and my new favorite crackers (Cashew Nut Crisps), and you have the perfect lunch!

There isn't really a recipe here, just stack slices of everything on your favorite toasted bread.  Skip the Mayo!  First, it is gross (sorry, personal opinion).  Second, you have creamy avocado...who needs Mayo?  Third, there isn't an M in there is there?  If you want to add Mayo then it would be a BLMAT! 



Now on the Award.  Tina over at Flourtrader passed this great award to me a few weeks ago.  I have been very bad about passing it along, sorry about that.  Tina is a wonderful blogger, with all sorts of great recipes on her site.  Make sure you check her out!!

Thank you Erin, I'm so honored, what a great group of bloggers on that list! You so deserve the award too...especially for the BLT, I've been craving them lately and I've been practically living on avocados so this is pretty much a perfect combo for me!

How cool is this!? Thanks Erin. I too am honored. You put me in some wonderful company there.

As for the sandwich, you make me wish I liked avocados :-P But I will definitely take the rest of it. My hubby and I have been on a BLT kick lately. YUM!!

Of my gosh! I'd like a BLMAT please! It looks amazingly delicious!!!

I grew up hating avocado AND tomatoes! Now, I adore it! And what doesn't go good with bacon??!!

I love BLATs...avocado and bacon together? Heaven!!

Thank you so much, Erin! Also, congrats to you! We have very similar posts today! Too funny! Avocado is a great addition to a BLT and it's funner to say BLAT!

That BLAT is definitely a cafe quality! I used to make loads and got sick of making them. Yours look so restrainedly chic.

This happens to be one of my favorite sandwiches!

I think adding avocado to anything badon based is a great stroke of genius!

Oops! Sorry! I meant 'bacon'!

Ooh, that sandwich really stepped up in the ranks when you added the avocado-looks delicious!
Regarding the awards, don't feel bad about the delay. I did not know what to do with my first one and never posted anything about it or passed it along. But second time I asked for instructions! Ahh, the continual learning process of blogging!Have a great weekend.

That's seriously one of my favourite sandwiches. The avocado makes it. So amazing!!

What a cute idea!! Love the addition of avocado! :) Congratulations to all those blogs, well-deserved!!

Mmmm... I think in some places they call that a California BLT or at least that's what I've heard here in the southwest. It's one of my favorite ways to make and eat a BLT too! Congrats on the award!

I love avocado on BLTs (or yes, BLATs!). I love avocado on pretty much everything, but it goes so well with bacon and tomato. Thanks for including me in your awards list, I am honoured!

Haha, I love BLATs too! I personally do enjoy the mayo on a BLT, but in a restricted amount. Shouldn't overwhelm. Avocados are a no brainer, they make EVERYTHING significantly more awesome :) Hope you have a great weekend!

Congrats on your award!

The sandwich looks wonderful. Perfect for a hot day... we are having a heat wave.

Just started following your blog; love it.

That looks so good! Avocado is the perfect substitute for the mayo!

LOVE avocado on my BLT's...just makes them that much more savory! This with a nutella cupcake for dessert...makes the perfect lunch! : )

Congrats on the awards for you and all those beautiful bloggers, well-deserved. Good idea to boost the healthy avocado in the sandwich, I sometimes put it in my turkey version sandwich. Thank you Erin. Wonderful blog, love it.

Now that's a good way to use avocado! I bet it makes for a very creamy bite. Congrats on making Top 9, great job! : )
