I Got Nothin’
July 24, 2008
Well, it finally happened. The legal rules have found their way into every single nook and cranny in my brain. If you can believe it, there is no room for daydreamed menus, to-do-list recipes or mental grocery lists. These things typically take up quite a bit of space in my head. But, sadly, the bar exam is occupying that precious real estate now. As such, I declare this day, July 25, 2008, to be Food Porn Friday. It shall feature gratuitous close-ups of my favorite BLT, complete with a creamy pesto spread. Enjoy!

1/4 cup pesto
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
8 slices of your favorite bread
8 slices of ripe tomato, sprinkled with salt and pepper
4 to 8 romaine leaves
12 slices cooked center-cut bacon
Combine the pesto and yogurt. Slather the pesto spread on four slices of the bread. Top each slice of pesto-ed bread with 1 or 2 romaine leaves, 2 tomato slices and 3 slices of bacon. Top each slice with one of the remaining slices of bread.
