the blt – a culinary ode to ruhlman (circa 9/09)

November 17th, 2009 · 38 Comments

i realize that this is old news. i mean, any tomato such as the one i used in september is sadly unattainable until three more seasons are behind us. but with all the summer clamor to make the ultimate blt from total scratch – all the while knowing that i was not in the mood to cure my locally sourced pork belly, or grow anything other than my sweet 100’s… i started to get a hefty craving for what is my second favorite sandwich.

and i did it my way – and with a clean conscience. ruhlman inspires me like no other, but as passionate as i am about my food – sometimes i can make do…

a pretty decent loaf of bread, a farmers market tomato, salty smoky benton’s bacon from right here in tennessee, some crisp romaine and my beloved hellman’s mayo.

go here to see how it’s done by the professionals. but damn if mine wasn’t just plain excellent…

(anyone care to guess what my #1 sandwich could possibly be?)

    I think that everything posted was very reasonable. However, what about this? what if you added a little content? I mean,I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post headlines to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
