Room of the Day

Ever since our friends Logan and Julia moved to a charming little garden level apartment in Brooklyn, I find myself daydreaming about what it would be like to have city life outside but then just have that little nook of outdoor space to drink my morning coffee in my pajamas and glasses or that after dinner glass of wine before I snuggle under the covers.  It just seems like the perfect place for that time of day when you've come home and showered the city grind off of you.  Maybe New Yorkers wouldn't be so hard if everyone had their little piece of outdoor nook?  
Just a thought. I digress.

Party Food: Mini BLTs

We had a beautifully girly bridal shower for one of my best friends this weekend, complete in a Gatsby theme, including little tea sandwiches. I made these mini BLTs and they were a huge hit, and so easy to prepare!

You'll need:
Baguettes, sliced thin
Mayo
Avocado
Bacon
Lettuce
Tomato
Toothpicks

Have the bakery slice your baguette pretty thin.  I wish mine were just a TINY bit thicker, but they got the job done.  Mix some mayo in a bowl with some ripe avocado to  make a nice chunky avocado mayo paste.  I added some sea salt and cayenne pepper as well. Bake your bacon on a cookie tray in the oven.  It'll stay flat, instead of curling up like it does in a pan.  Slice lettuce and tomato.  Smear some avocado mayo on one of the baguette slices, layer on the bacon, lettuce, and tomato, add a top piece, and secure with a toothpick.  

They're perfectly lady like and one bite worthy!
