Of late I’ve gotten myself into a couple of situations where I realized I was extremely hungry but (alas!) there was nothing pre-prepared in my fridge. Argh. The only way to remedy that is either exert great patience while I fix a meal or run to the nearest fast food joint. Nope. I just can’t seem to make myself go to one of the numerous fast food franchises in my neighborhood. So that leaves me practicing patience while I scramble to put together a quicky meal.
One such meal was the (t)BKT. I’ve discovered a new love, you see. Baby kale. It’s the new lettuce for me. I buy them by the containers and have it for salad. Good-bye iceberg, so long romaine, until next time spinach. The star of the hour is baby kale. And I’ll buy it and eat it until I’m ready to move on.
So. While scrounging in my kitchen the other day I realized I could put a new twist to the BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) sandwich using baby kale and good ole turkey bacon. Without further ado, I pulled out the necessary ingredients from the fridge and got to work.
Within minutes (I had to fry the turkey bacon in the skillet), the sandwich was assembled and ready for consumption. Yum!
(t)BKT to the rescue!
