I’ve always been a sucker for a BLT sandwich. Or is it that I’m just a sucker for anything with bacon? Hmm?!!? BLT’s are amazing as is. Bacon + lettuce + tomato between two slices of toasted sourdough bread. You’re thinking…damn Stacy, you are right!
You know I like to jazz up all the classics. It’s just the way I roll. I like to put a fun spin on everything. Including my BLT’s. Soooo, how about a piece of freshly baked salmon between those buns?
Ha…that sounds so inappropriate. I should probably backspace that whole sentence out, but just how I like to jazz things up, I love being somewhat inappropriate just as much. So, clearly i’m going to leave it right there.
And to even spice it up a little more. Chipotle mayo. Want to know a secret? I’m slightly obsessed with mayo!
Sometimes (all the times) when I make Bay’s sandwich for lunch, I lick the mayo off the knife. Yep! One time, yearrrrsss ago, I’m talking like 12 years old. My friends and I made a reality show. We used one of those big ol video cameras that held a VHS tape and really recorded it. I was in-charge of the commercials. Obviously I did a mayo commercial. I ate a spoon of mayo on air. At 12 years old, I didn’t see anything wrong with this. I soon came to learn that peeps thought I was a freak. lol. Now I keep my mayo love under wraps. I know you’re never going to look at me the same, and I’m completely ok with that 🙂 I’ve only met a handful of fellow mayo lovers. Andrea being one of them. She just gets it!
That right there below….that is chipotle mayo…yummm! And some toppings too.
