Upgraded BLT

Around Thursdays I take inventory of the fridge for 2 reasons: 
1. Use up any leftovers. 
2. Prep my grocery list and menu. 

Not infrequently, I have bits of leftovers, slices of cheese, bacon or fruits and veggies about to spoil--like the banana or avocado turning brown!  This past weekend an entire pack of bacon needed use...quickly; and, nothing's easier than a BLT: Bacon, Lettuce, Tomatoe & other stuff! Perfect for any lunch on the go, in between classes, or a simple dinner. 


Forgot how to Make Bacon. Click this link!
