For no apparent reason, I think I smell bacon. I'm in my cubicle. the only place there is likely bacon in the building is in the cafeteria, which is nowhere near here. Sometimes thinking about something will make me think I can smell it, so I know it's possible for me to "smell" things that aren't really there. But I wasn't thinking about it at all, so it's kind of weird.
I am struck by the thought that I haven't had any bacon in a while. The subject of a BLT came up this weekend. Yum. Of course, I heard that people who don't eat bacon will do a PLT (pastrami). That sounds like it could be fine, too, but there really is nothing like hot, fresh bacon combined with mayo, tomato, and lettuce on bread. Yum. Maybe I should hunt down some turkey bacon or something and try to make a kosher BLT.

There always breakfast smells coming up from the cafeteria (well, sometimes there are lunch-prep smells), but this morning's bacon smell was much... larger than the other food smells are.

I've never noticed the breakfast smells in my cubicle before. Coming in the stairs, yes, and in the bathroom, yes, but never this far in. I wonder what's different.

BLT, just happens to be my initials...I have no idea what my parents were thinking when they named me, but i guess it could be worse, my sisters initials are RAT, which sort of suits her now that I think of it.
Anyways, BLT sandwich's always brings back memories of warm summer evenings while I was growing up. My mother would enlist all of us kids into making all the components, for some reason I always got stuck making the toast. With a family of 7, that was a lot of toast :) Ummm....but it was yummy
You beast. Writing this in a week when I've decided to do all my eating from what's in my cupboards (and refrigerator and freezer). I have no bacon in any of those places. I have no lettuce or tomato for that matter, but I'd be happy to eat a BLT without them :-)
I now crave a BLT. I'm probably going to have a tunafish sandwich.

I have cookbook called "Pantry Cooking" that I generally don't cook from, but do find helpful when thinking of how to use those same ingredients in my cupboards in some way I haven't made one zillion times. I also have been known to suggest things, given a list of ingredients, if you decide you can't think of something that sounds appealing (though that would surprise me; you are a successful experimental cook, in my book).
