Trust me on this

As good as this was...
... it wasn't even the highlight of my day.  And, yes, this Rocky Road Brownie with caramel sauce and ice cream is as good as it looks.

And I hate to say it, but even spending a day off work with my friend Gaye was not even the highlight of my day, even though I got to see her new purse.  I have shown her purse/backpacks here before.  She usually uses clothing labels all over them.  They are quite the attention-getter.  This is a purchased backpack, and she has added lots of embellishments.
Love the "guest" nametag on it, as well as that picture of "little Gaye".
On the back, she used a pocket cut from her husband's old army shirt.  How clever!
Yes, when I drive up to Louisville on my day off and spend some time with my best friend, that's usually the highlight of the week. But, sorry Gaye.  That heavenly BLT was the highlight of my day, if not the whole month! 

I don't have a picture of the BLT, but if I did, it would not do justice to just how awesomely good it was.  It was a pretzel croissant (soft and light), with candied bacon (never heard of candied bacon, but I could have eaten a whole plate of it if thay had put it in front of me), fresh summer tomatoes, and honey mustard.  The flavors blended perfectly yet each remained distinct. 

If you ever find yourself in Louisville, Kentucky, on Wallace Avenue, do yourself a favor and look for a little out-of-the way consignment shop called Ruby Slipper.  Go to the back of the shop and sit yourself down at Bloom's Lunch Cafe.  Order the BLT.  You're welcome.

You've made me really, really hungry! LOL! I think I'll go get a BLT tomorrow.
