>Sunny Day BLT’s

>First of all, I was unsure how to pluralize BLT. Thankfully the internet has the answer to many things, although this is an old-school actual dictionary page. (One recent question the internet could not answer for me: Who does the U.S. military’s commission come from?)





Secondly, everyone and their mother feels really smart for knowing “botanically, the tomato is a fruit, NOT a vegetable”. Come on. Everyone and their mother knows it. Let’s move on.


EXCEPT!


The Supreme Court has an opinion on this! A Supreme Opinion! In Nix v. Hedden, 1893, it was decided that “the tomato should be classified under customs regulations as a vegetable rather than a fruit.” (Quote and fascinating info via Wikipedia.) There are Dickens references! There’s a cabbage! 


CONTEST: Find a more amusing Supreme Court ruling than this one. GO!


And now a Segway into the title meal… (but don’t fall off a cliff):

On Thursday I really wanted a BLT, but a little different. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out.


You will need:


Corn tortillas, warmed (just throw them on a hot burner for about 40 seconds per side)
Pepper bacon, cooked to your liking (chewier is better)
Lettuce
Green tomato, cut into thin wedges
Avocado, cut in half and cut into thin wedges
Salsa verde


Assemble thusly:


Corn tortilla
  Lettuce
    Bacon
       Green tomato slices
          Avocado slices
            Salsa verde


Sit in the sunshine and enjoy.
