California Weaved BLT’s

CALIFORNIA WEAVED BLT'S

Our family loves Friday night meal time. We love fun, fast, flavorful meals that have a crunch. It is perfectly ripe avocado season and the tomatoes are growing like wildfires on the vine, so this meal almost made itself. Thanks to my friend Jewel, the bacon is weaved so every bite gets bacon. There is no better BLT. At least not in this household. I promise there is a science to how the sandwich is layered. The kids love it and could eat two or three sandwiches a piece. Plus, adding a dash of California to our meal never hurt anyone!~
