If Life gives You Limes, Make A Limenade

Don't settle for an ordinary sandwich when you can have an extraordinary sandwich.
 If my husband hears bacon, cheese, and potatoes, he doesn't need to hear anything else.  In this case it was a BCT, yes, a bacon, cheese, and tomato sandwich for lunch.  Of course, he doesn't miss the lettuce.  The word lettuce is not even in his vocabulary, so every time I refer to my husband it will be Mr. BCP.  I accompanied our BCT sandwich with a limenade; you know what they say, "If life gives you limes, make a limenade?"

                                              Bacon, Cheese, And Tomato Sandwich

                               Bacon, Cheese, and Tomato Sandwich grilled in the panini

Ingredients:                                   Yield: 2 servings

4 slices  white bread (or any other of your choice)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

4 slices bacon, cooked

4 slices swiss cheese

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


Spread mayonnaise on each slice of bread.  Layer cheese, tomato,  bacon, and  parsley on two slices of bread and top with remaining slices of bread. Grill in panini until cheese is melted and bread moderately toasted.  If you do not own a panini, grill sandwiches in a skillet that has been sprayed with vegetable oil or 1 tablespoon of butter.

Enjoy every bite!

2/3 cups granulated sugar


In a pitcher, pour 3 cups cold water and set aside.  Squeeze the life out of 5 limes. Add lime juice and sugar into pitcher of cold water. Add lime slices and ice to limenade,  stir, and enjoy.
