The truth is, I wanted to make a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich. I don’t always have bacon in the fridge, but did now and with some great tomatoes on the windowsill decided a BLT would be good…and quick!
So, got the bacon going on the stove and before slicing some fresh tomatoes decide to toast my bread. And then..what? The bread was nowhere to be found! I had a piece of toast for breakfast and the loaf of bread was about half gone. Being the only one here for the day…where oh where was that bread?
I looked everywhere; but come on; pretty limited options. Bread box, nope. Counter by toaster, nope. Other counters…same result. Not on the kitchen table and why would I take it outside; but checked there anyhow.
Then I recall that when I came into the kitchen midday I had picked up a bread wrapper from the floor that I typically keep the bread in. Wondered a bit why it was there but just pitched it without another thought. Then had one of those light bulb moments – I’m guessing that my sweet little dog Abbie saw an opportunity and grabbed it; literally!
But now I wanted that BLT…but without bread? What did I have that was close? Pasta came to mind; so BTP (Bacon, Tomato, Pasta) it was. It was easy; and though not exactly the same, it satisfied the craving I had, was a quick and satisfying meal and good enough to make again..yes, that’s a keeper for me!
