Hi bento pals! It is hot, humid and truly summery here, but at least the local farmer's market is full of juicy bright bounty, and yielded the key ingredient--heirloom tomatoes--of a favorite decadent and summer-only treat: bacon, onion and tomato sandwiches.
First, Saturday's sunny market selections:
Saturday's delicious dinner was a rite of summer, one we indulge in a few times over the long, hot months of heat and sun-ripening market tomatoes: Applewood smoked bacon, three heirloom tomato varieties, red onion, a thin smear of mayo and white bread toasted and very lightly sauteed in bacon fat. Perfection, this alchemy of texures and tastes!
Baby market greens with edible blue borage and spicy nasturtium flowers, with sea salt and magical Sicilian orange infused olive oil:
Sweet ripe white peaches for dessert!
