B.E.L.T's

I spotted this post over on Kiss My Spatula---and just had to make some.

To make mine, (I seem to do things the hard way :D)
I started by making the bread. I'm very fond of artisinal breads, and esp. wholegrain ones.
I started to assemble the ingredients, and noticed that I didn't have mayo...
so I made some mayo...
Not just any dressing though, mine was made with sweet basil from the garden, olive oil, lemon and an egg from a local farm.
It is really good.

{lovely images via http://kissmyspatula.com/2010/08/17/b-e-l-t-sandwich/ I would have posted my own, but it was dark by the time I finished the sandwiches/my camera doesn't take fabulous low light shots}

This spring, when I was hunting around in the plant nursery I was excited to find some heirloom tomatoes. They are now producing gorgeous fruits ranging from golden yellow, to orange, to deep red/shaded with deep green or purple.
I had one in particular, a deep red specimen that was just large enough to fit on a slice of bread.
I also used lettuce from the garden.
It was such a good sandwich.
