Firefighters in Leavenworth today, posted every 100 yards, keeping the fire from jumping the Wenatchee River. This is over the pass from Seattle and we could see all the smoke from various fires from the plane.
Brown Sugar Bacon BLT with Avocado
This is my favorite summertime sandwich. The heirloom tomatoes growing in our garden are sweet, tangy and so good! The recipe is easy, the difference with this is brown sugar bacon, which ccoks in the oven and is much easier than standing over a splattering pan. It’s also completely delicious. I buy the nitrate free stuff, to pretend like it’s healthy.
To make brown sugar bacon: Line a cookie sheet with foil, add the bacon to the cookie sheet with the fat side touching the pan, and the meatier side overlapping on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Turn the oven to 400. Add the pan to the un-preheated oven, this way it renders slowly. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, turn it around if it needs it, to cook evenly. Drain on paper towels with the sugar side up, or you get tiny bits of paper towel on your sweet bacon. I found this out by noshing on tiny bits of sugar coated, bacony paper towel one time. Please don’t tell anyone.
Layer all the ingredients on toasted sourdough with mayo, avocado, heirloom tomato, lettuce, celery salt and pepper. Yum!
Enjoy your Sunday Tumblrs!
Feeling pretty lucky to be able to spend some time here. I’ve got my own little hideaway in the artist’s studio over to the right. Holly’s mom was a painter.
We’re headed up to Truckee later for lunch. I’ve never been and have always wanted to go there for some reason. Maybe the name.
