Taste the Rainbow

(migrated from my Tripod blog on 11/05/2011)


Foodstuffs can lend themselves to fun.

Jillian and I headed to our local Safeway on the way home from work today, in order to pick up all the things we forgot to buy on our trip to Superstore on Monday.

It never fails.  Despite both of us taking household organization to a level the Third Reich would envy, and even with both of us keeping individual lists of groceries, we still manage to forget 25% of the things we went to the store to buy in the first place.

In our case, it's not such an ordeal.  Most of the things we went to buy are highly perishable goods (such as organic produce),  which we really should be buying the day we intend to use it.

Jill got me started on this whole organic thing and, despite not being the sort to hop on any particular bandwagon, after seeing positive results in my mood, I hopped on this particular bandwagon.

While we were at the store, I thought about what I'd like for the rest of the week's lunches.  I still had some back bacon left from Monday's excursion, a few tomatoes too, so I thought "Why not have BLTs for the next couple of days?"

Why not?

I bought some nice French bread and some cheese to accompany, and set about making my own BLT...

I laughed out loud when I realized the acronym BLT would need to be changed...

Lettuce, Gouda, Bacon, and Tomato.

God help me, I've just made an LGBT Sandwich!!

Taste the Rainbow, indeed!
