Sandwich Night: Pseudo BLT's

After a trip out east yesterday, we swung by Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana for a late lunch. Thanks a million Squirrel Squad, you make the best suggestions for good eats. Since we polished off a chorizo tortuga and elephant ear tacos around three in the afternoon, we weren't really feeling dinner. But I hate to wake up hungry so as it got later I started jonesin' for a snack. Thus Sandwich Night was born.

We wanted BLT's but we didn't have all the BLT stuff and I just HAVE to spice everything up. Best part, the only dirty dishes were two knives and a cutting board. Sandwich Night, YOU RULE!!!!!!!!

Pseudo-BLT Checklist
  • Bacon
  • Arugula (home picked from our backyard plot of greens)
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Caramelized vidalia onions
  • Mayo
  • Toasted whole wheat bread

As far as direction for assembly are concerned, I'll let you use your imagination.

    Glad y'all finally made it out here to Cordova. We're surprisingly cultured. Las Tortugas, the Russian grocery store, the Indian grocery store, a Thai restaurant, a gyro joint, a great Indian restaurant, and many more cuisines are all available within a very short radius.

    You know what's be perfect, if they would move Cordova a little bit closer to midtown.

    How's the Thai place?

    Hey, sometimes I wish Midtown were closer. Bayou Bar & Grill, Bosco's Squared, Zinnies, etc. :)

    Bangkok Alley is small but quite nice. I've eaten there a half dozen times, always trying something different. Never had a bad experience. It's on G'town Parkway, on the east side of the street near a Papa John's pizza joint.

    My wife did something similar to this last night. Toasted whole wheat bread, roast pork left over from two nights before, turkey bacon (one of her periodic concessions to healthiness), avocado, and a green onion mayo. I think the recipe came from this monthly Everyday Food. It was absolutely delicious. I would want it once a week if my daughter's 12 hour explosion virus hadn't decided to manifest itself in me at midnight. As it stands I may hold off for a few months.
