light and filling…

As summer starts to dig its heels into long hot days, I thought a light dinner was in order. A simple, delicious mix of fresh multi-grain bread that I toasted was decorated with slivers of creamy avocado, sharp cheddar, sliced chicken breast, ripe red tomatoes and a touch of mayo. It may sound simplistic, but every last bite was filled with flavors that screamed summer is hear to stay… And you know what, I’m ok with that.

B-L-Totally Awesome!

So this past holiday weekend was a full-on baking extravaganza, chock full of bread loaves, buns and crumbles… The loaves and buns were whipped up using one of my favorite British cookbooks.
Since there was an abundance of homemade Sherston loaves in the house, I decided to slice up some heavenly chunks and do classic BLT’s for dinner!
After toasting up these lovely slices, a smear of mayo acted as the glue for building up these hearty sandwiches! Thick rings of juicy red tomatoes, crisp and cool leaves of romaine, along with salty, applewood smoked bacon brought this masterpiece together…
The juicy tomatoes oozed their gorgeous, sweet nectar and dripped down my lips as I savored each and every bite! Since one sandwich disappeared so suddenly, I am not embarrassed to say that an additional BLT made its way onto my plate and then into my belly…

whoops forgot the cornbread…

So tonight was a Southern themed meal! On the menu… baby back ribs with a side of homemade slaw.
The ribs were glazed in a smokey bourbon sauce. Slow cooked on the grill [wrapped gently in foil and turning once] till cooked through and tender. These meaty little guys were fall of the bone good!
The side was full of vibrancy and zip! Shredded savoy cabbage amd carrots, mayo, champagne vinegar, salt, crushed red pepper and for a special something… dried cranberries. Creamy, tangy and full of flavor!
This dish may make an appearance again quite soon for a weekend meal…
