Brownies and BLTAs

Well, this weekend is just starting off with a bang! :)

I’m so happy it’s Friday and am more than ready for the long weekend ahead. It will be pretty low key (for the most part), but I get to see most of my family and I can’t wait. Plus – more football!

Nick and I had a get together tonight, so I made these cookie topped brownies to bring. Baked last night (and they smelled really good at 10 pm last night – it was hard to resist), so all I had to do was cut them when we got home today.


We had to be back in town at 7, so our dinner was fast.


There was just enough bacon for us to make some BLTAs for dinner.


Nick cooked the bacon while I got the rest of the dinner stuff out and shucked/cooked the corn.

We had some local sprouted grain bread, the best Amish market bacon, tomato from our garden, local lettuce, and avocado.

I think all BLTs should also have avocado – I don’t need mayo if I have avocado on the sandwich. It’s just as creamy and tastes even better.

We just got home, I’ve got laundry in the dryer, and we’re leaving tomorrow so the morning will be pretty busy with packing, etc.

Hooray for the holiday weekend!



  1. what is better than brownies? COOKIE TOPPED brownies! wow, delicious! i must make these.

    i agree on the avocado. every BLT should be a BLTA!

  2. Avocado on BLTs sounds like an amazing idea! Yay for college football Saturday!

  3. I agree 100%! BLTs are SO much better with avocado!! And they totally replicate the creaminess of mayo :)
