Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato....

Happy Friday! I'm ready for a 3 day weekend.

I was supposed to bring some tea sandwiches to our tennis match this morning, but it was rained out. I spent hours yesterday baking bacon (yes, baking! Bacon! I'll never fry bacon again!)* and boiling eggs for mini BLTs and egg salad sandwiches. So I had all this bacon and HB eggs and decided to get a little creative for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner tonight! I can't let perfectly good bacon and egg salad go bad, now can I? ;)

I had all this bacon, so I thought: why don't I put some bacon bits and a little bit of scallion into the egg salad? Is it wrong to have egg salad sandwiches for breakfast? Not if it has bacon! ;)

I made these cute BLTomato cups as a snack.

For lunch, I made BLT "pizzas" on whole wheat pita bread. Each mini "pizza" has 240 calories and they are super delicious. Here is the "recipe":

whole wheat pita bread
basil leaves
shredded lettuce
cherry tomatoes, sliced
3 slices of cooked bacon, chopped into bits* ( )
1 TBSP ranch dressing

Toast the pita bread on both sides. Toss the lettuce & bacon bits with the ranch dressing. Arrange the basil on top of the toasted pita bread. Put the lettuce mixture over the basil, then top with the tomatoes. Use a pizza cutter to slice the pita into 4 wedges. Enjoy!

This was so tasty, I wanted another one!

PS I wish I knew how to post this to my Facebook fan page and not MY personal FB wall.....and I also wish I knew how to make the pictures bigger. I'm a work in progress! :) And I love comments! xo
