In all actuality, I'm late to most things in my life. Just ask my fiancee, and my family, and my friends, and my work (oops!). If me and my friends are set to meet at 1:00, you can bet your butt I'll be there at 1:15. If my mama says come to dinner at 5:30, that somehow translates to 6:00 in my brain.
I'll just say "better late than never" applies here. Right? Right?
God I need to work on that. It also contributes to my road rage. Not flick you off and follow you to fight you kinda road rage. Just constantly annoyed by the slow drivers in front of me. If I'd just leave on time (or early even.... what does that even mean?!?!) then I wouldn't have to be so frustrated getting everywhere.
Maybe one day I'll learn.
This month we had to choose a fruit, veggie, or legume starting with either I or J. I've been racking up some recipes using iceberg lettuce, so iceberg lettuce it would be.
These apps will be the talk of the party. A BLT in an appetizer form? How could this not be amazeballs?!?! Plus a little melted gooey cheese? Let's take a moment of silence for this masterpiece.
Silence over. Now make them and shout it to the world how perfect these are!!!!
adapted from Sunset and Pillsbury
- 12 slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread
- sliced pepper jack cheese cut into 12 small squares
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
- 6 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
- 5 slices bacon (you may have some leftover, it just means more for snacking)
- salt and pepper for seasoning
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Top baguette slices with cheese slices and bake for 10 minutes or until edges of bread are golden brown and cheese is melted.
Remove baguette slices from oven. In a small bowl, add mayo, green onions, and lettuce. Spread mixture onto each baguette slice. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top each baguette slice with bacon pieces and a sliced tomato.
