Summertime addiction

BLAT

You know its summertime when for every meal all you want to make is BLT sanwiches. For breakfast put an egg on it…experiment with mayos; pesto, chipotle or Rosemary. After venturing to the farmer’s market I bought a basket of local tomatoes and a dill plant to continue my BLT addiction.  This sandwich — Bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato on toasted sunflower seed bread with dill mayo & to accompany it a watermelon-feta salad…….hello summer!

Bayou 2 Go: 22nd St Baton Rouge, LA

i’ll admit with my most recent relocation to louisiana i feel i have done a bit of time traveling.  the old south man, they are set in their old ways….sometimes i feel like ranting and raving about it, sometimes i just shake my head in dismay and then in rare occasions i love and admire somethings they continue on with.  prime example the use of murals to advertise businesses and their wares.  i’ve never seen so many kept up building advertisement murals and window paintings.  thus is born my new series for the south….”Bayou 2 Go” photographs of all the wonderful food related murals i stumble across as i learn and explore the region.  hope it makes ya hungry!
