Those of you that know me, know that I don’t eat meat often. As a matter of fact I rarely buy it and save my indulgences on eating it to when I am out and it is being served. It is not that I don’t like it, we just don’t get along very well. So, I keep it to special occasions. Last night was one of those!
Is there anything better than a bacon and tomato sandwich when the tomatoes have just been picked and there are five types?
And how about if you have some field greens and fresh basil to top it off with?
And how about if the bacon comes from a local farmer that you just bought hours earlier?
And how about if the bread is freshly baked by your hubby?
And how about if you eat pickles with it that you just made a few days earlier from cucumbers in your garden?
And how about if you have a pot of Cream of Tomato soup (also from the garden tomatoes) simmering on the stove to accompany it?
Can you smell it? Can you taste it? It was perfection… plain and simple.
A bacon and tomato sandwich is simply a rite of passage from summer to fall for me. As I transition into 100% fall status this will be repeated with those last tomatoes that are begging to be used in a splendid way!
What’s your favorite indulge from your late summer harvest?
