Almost Local

I fixed BLT's for my guys this weekend :: twice. They love them that much. I was excited to use ingredients that were, in one way or another, completely local. Do you see that gorgeous lettuce? It came straight from our friend's garden. And the tomatoes are from our own little kitchen garden in the backyard. They are Patio tomatoes, a bit on the small side and very tasty. The bread came from a local bakery and the bacon from an old-time meat market that's been here for years and years. So, except for the mayo (Trader Joe's) the meal was made entirely from local ingredients. Until.............
they decided they wanted turkey and swiss cheese too. Oh well - I tried.
