BLT and A and BC=BLABCT?

BLT night was awesome! First of all, my pleas for more guests were successful since Jane came and Angie decided to postpone her trip up north. I had a momentary panic when I got home at 6:46 and saw two extra guests. Luckily, Everett's is open until 7:00, so we were able to procure more bacon. And we weren't even the last panicked customers. (Note to other late shoppers: They lock the IN door at 6:50, but the OUT door remains open. Good to know.) I fried up all two pounds of bacon (which Karen reported being able to smell from down the block when she parked.) I also had romaine lettuce, sliced tomatoes, mayonnaise, sliced avocado and crumbled blue cheese. Beth toasted a pile of sourdough bread. See how the lid keeps them warm?The avocado was delicious on the sandwiches, of course. The BLAT is one of my favorite sandwiches, after all. But the blue cheese was downright inspirational. Fantastic. Try it! I am going to expand on this concept to make a full Cobb Salad sandwich with the addition of sliced hard boiled egg and rotisserie chicken, mark my words. I'll let you know how it turns out.
We watched episode 2 of ANTM season 1. It includes the now legendary (in ANTM fan circles, at least) Elyse confessional rant. I have Elyse Sewell to blame for introducing the phrase "shit slice" to my vocabulary. Thanks!
We also took in two episodes of Reno 911 in an attempt to convert Karen to our ways. Not sure if we were successful, but she did laugh a lot. I think she had more fun watching us watch it.
