BLTs, potato salad and daquiris

This was such a good meal… and it was one of those thrown-together-at-the-last-minute things, too! I made BLTs… just bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo on toasted bread. It felt like such a treat somehow.

I used up some red potatoes and green beans from our Farmhouse bin… I just boiled them up separately until they were tender, then tossed them with mayo, Dijon mustard, chopped dill pickles, salt and pepper.

Justin whipped up some daiquiris (served on the rocks, because it’s so HOT in our little kitchen!), and we were all set. I’m loving this simple cooking thing I’ve got going. It’s been a while since I’ve felt inspired enough to be in the kitchen that often, but lately simple food has been the most inspiring to me. And seriously, it doesn’t get much simpler than BLTs, potato salad, and daiquiris. 🙂


  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup (we use light agave nectar)
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled glass (or serve over ice if you want). Garnish with lime wedge.

  1. BLTs are seriously one of the best things in the world. Love them.

    Love that you’re on a simple cooking kick! That’s our favorite kind. 🙂

    1. Aren’t they? They feel so decadent, but so simple.

  2. That looks just perfect. I wish I could get excited about cooking like you do…

    And the daiquiris are a great idea! Poor hot Eskies.

    1. Ha! I told Justin about your “Poor hot Eskies” quote and he cracked up. 🙂

  3. Simple cooking, yay! This means I can learn a lot from you right now 😉 I’m trying to learn how to cook. Better start with the simple stuff, like BLTs! But really, anything with bacon would be awesome, no? 😀


    1. Yay for learning to cook! And yes, bacon does make most things better. I think.
