I got my Mile Swim patch at Camp Goshen, VA in the summer of 1968.  That was a great camp!

I just picked a garden tomato that was still warm from the sun, sliced it thick and added fresh ground salt and pepper, fried up 3 pieces of bacon and grabbed some crisp romaine lettuce and piled them all lovingly on mayo'ed bread and I was very close to touching nirvana. :)

Nothing like a good BLT. And I commend you for not putting miracle-whip on the sandwich. ;)

This is like commending someone for not taking a dump in the bidet. ;D

Although I find mayo to be equally gross. :-\

+1.  I've never been accused of being particularly picky, and there are few things I don't eat, but mayo and any of the quasi-mayos of the world are one of the few things I utterly detest.  Which is strange because its not particularly strong tasting, like say, Thai fish sauce.  Although that's another thing I like to go easy on too!

without mayo (best foods west/hellman's east of the river) it is not a sandwich. now really get her going with a little of tom's horseradish blended in to that mayo and that goes great on a roast beef sandwich.  i have been craving a BLT on toast for two weeks now.

I can't see how you could eat and enjoy a BLT without mayo .... unless you're some kind of wacko.  ;)

Dang mang.  Just having bacon on hand sounds divine.

What kind of bread you got there.  You don't seem like the Wonder type?  Something with some nuts perhaps?

I haven't eaten plain white, sliced bread in probably 30 years. That said, it was just sliced "Nature's Own" Honey Wheat. Have to admit though, it was perfect!

Speaking of bread, I have found that a good sour dough is THE BREAD to eat with pulled pork sandwich. It's awesome!

Are you S*#*#**g me?!  You guys actually ingest store-bought mayonaise? 
Whoa...  food poisoning looking for a place to happen.
