And there is nothing like the total inconvenience of actually cooking bacon.
Too bad you can't have bacon without bacon grease.
But wait! You can, my friends! You can! This Trading Treats Tuesday, let's celebrate pre-cooked bacon and all that it brings to the classic BLT.
Nuke it for just a few seconds and you've got hot, crunchy bacon, ready to top off summer's ultimate sandwich. Because nothing (except Wapiti) says summer than BLTs -- especially if they're made with fresh-from-the-garden, homegrown, sun-ripened tomatoes.
And even better 'cause you didn't have to stink up your house with the smell of cooked bacon. And even more better 'cause you didn't have to coat your kitchen with a layer of bacon grease. And even more better-ER 'cause you didn't have find a way to dispose of that pesky congealing bacon grease. True, the pre-cooked stuff is not quite as tasty, but the conveniences far outweigh that minor failing.
And then, to top it all off, how great is it when your mom brings you a lovely loaf of homemade bread to use in the making of your fabulous BLT??????
So there you go, THREE treats: pre-cooked bacon, and my generous neighbor's homegrown tomatoes, and homemade bread from dear ol' Mom.
And now, as this Trading Treat Tuesday is, in fact, my 100th post, it is time to announce the winner of the Sack Lunch Conspiracy 100th Post Contest! But first,
