That’s a Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, and Colby Jack Burger.  With mayonnaise, ketchup, and pickles.

One of the most perfect food-combinations on the planet.

I usually have at least an inkling of an idea in the morning of what I’m cooking for dinner, but this morning I was a blank.  And about midway through the day – with the weather approaching 70° – burgers and fries seemed to be just the thing.  And ripe avocado, hot-house tomatoes from New York – no Florida tomatoes in this house – and bacon and lettuce and … and …

I really love an over-the-top burger.  A 6+ napkin monstrosity that is so messy I need a shower after eating it.  Heaven.

To even begin to eat this thing tonight, I had to cut it in half.  And once you pick up a half, you’re committed.  There’s no putting it down.  It’s a roll-up-the-sleeves-elbows-on-the-table-hunched-over-the-plate-slip-sliding dining experience.  Miss Manners would frown – until she took her first bite!

Here’s to warm weather!
