Heirloom BLT

This weekend, we did something really fun and just a little bit redneck.  Austin's brother was in town, so we took him into Rocky Mountain National Park, after visiting the Bass Pro Shop and buying an elk bugle.
We drove through the park looking for elk and when we got to a clearing, we pulled over and bugled out to them.  I'm sure it didn't look the least bit suspicious!  And then the craziest thing happened!  They bugled back to us!
We had a full-on conversation with wild animals.  Only problem was, I didn't know what we were saying, not to mention what they were saying.  I'm guessing they were annoyed and saying something like, "why do those humans make fun of the way we talk - that doesn't sound anything like us."

The rest of the weekend, we went out to eat and walked around the shops downtown and I didn't do much cooking at all.  While eating out is always fun and nice because, you know, you don't have to do dishes afterwards.  Eating out also tends to mean heavier foods, so for lunch today I was craving something a little lighter and a little fresher.  Giant heirloom tomatoes that still smell like dirt are the perfect fresh vegetable, and when you make a sandwich with them, you only need one slice per sandwich!

1.  Cook up the bacon, toast your bread (which I didn't, because apparently I am weird and don't like toasted sandwiches) and put it all together!
