B.A.T. Sandwich - Bacon, Avocado, and Fire-Roasted Tomato Sandwich

Food for thought.

Things I've been cooking lately.

1. I made the best B.A.T. Sandwich (Bacon, avocado, tomato — I don’t do lettuce) ever. Ever I say! It was made with toasted country bread, mayo, bacon, avocado, and fire roasted tomatoes. It was pretty amazing.

2. Brussels sprouts, potatoes, and bacon. Seriously, everything is better with bacon!

3. I had some frozen cod so I made a couple of dishes. I wasn’t too happy with either of them. Cod might not be the best fish when it’s not fried and doused with vinegar…

4. Huevos rancheros. ‘Nuff said. (Actually, not enough said: this was probably the first time ever that I’ve been able to make an actual sunny side up egg that didn’t run or become scrambled. Mission. Accomplished.)

5. I roasted a whole chicken. All for myself. But it’s OK, because I got about a week’s worth of dinners out of it.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
