Tomato or Tomato . . .

what is your pleasure
bacon  lettuce  tomato  pickles  asparagus  mayo 
you know how it goes
we all have our favorites

I like bacon lettuce and clausen pickles
mister irish garden house likes bacon, lettuce and miracle whip
neither of us like tomatoes
the other night jack made a quick stop at the store
because I phoned him and said
"I have the bacon cooked
can you please pick up a loaf of bread?"

he also purchased some pickled asparagus
I reminded him when he got home
that we had some homemade pickled asparagus
in the refrigerator made by our friend babs

perfect time for a taste test
both made in Michigan
one store bought
one homemade
fairly easy to tell which one was the winner

thumbs up from the garden house guy
congratulations miss babs
until next time
love, Lynne

Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes with a large dill pickle, cut in half, on the side. The asparagus mayonnaise sounds like a good addition.

BLT's are my favorite sandwich in the whole wide world. I never eat tomatoes (unless the tiny ones) but like them on this sandwich, along with REAL mayo. I like C.pickles, too..but never even heard of pickled asparagus.

Yes, ma'am, I would love for you to keep me informed about the when you hear from her, what you have chosen, when you receive it and most importantly, if you love it to the moon and back. :)

No tomato? Pickled asparagus and bacon...hmmm will have to give that one a taste test one day.

I love bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.. no pickles for me though.. I am sure Bab's pickled asparagus is great.. Happy weekend!

Nice to see that homemade preserves won the challenge !

We like our BLT's just the regular ol' way.
The only rule is.. plenty of very crispy bacon. Never skimp on the bacon *smile**.

Oh gosh, I have to have thickly sliced tomatoes, bacon, lettuce, and a healthy bit of mayo. Oh, and the bread makes a huge difference! Multi-grain or whole wheat bread is my preference. Now you have me salivating, and I had plenty of dinner already. ;-)

One of my favorite sandwiches. I LOVE bacon!! Real Mayonaise...yes!!

I think I need some of that pickled Aspargus for my tailgate bloody Mary's this football season. Would prefer the homeade, but will have to settle for the grocery store version :-)

Missy George said...

I just love BLTs. Not a pickle fan. Hope you're having a good Sunday.

I'm sure Dennis would love a pickle on his BL, Lynne. He likes pickles on all his sandwiches. I only make a BLT when we can get really good tomatoes, which is rare. Sometimes we make BEL's -- Bacon, egg and lettuce. Not bad. :)

Sarah Huizenga said...

You can almost never beat homemade. That is interesting that neither one of you like tomatoes. I think heirloom tomatoes are my favorite.

Michelle said...

Nothing like a good BLT!

Rose said...

I never had pickled asparagus...but I would try it. I had never thought of pickles with BLT...but I do LOVE tomatoes.
