Who doesn’t love a BLT? And who can resist creamy avocado. This sandwich was so go and so satisfying! It is now our new comfort food!

BLT

Where did the BLT come from? No one really knows. It had to have been in the 20th century when all the ingredients were available. And who decided to name it using the acronym remains a mystery. But everyone knows what a BLT is!

So here is my take on this traditional favorite – And I think it’s really good! Continue reading

The time we are living in seems surreal. It’s like we are living in one of those disaster movies. And where I lives, it’s about to get worse.

How is everyone doing the the COVID-19 in your community? It’s pretty scary being in the “at risk” group. I’m 64 and I have hypertension. My husband is almost 75 and has a lot of health issues. And I work in child care – a petri dish of germs! I worry I’ll carry it home.
