BT’s, Pepper Salad, Green Bean Hotdish, and Fried Jalapenos.

Or what happens when Terry is told to make supper and try to use up some stuff in the fridge.

It’s an odd grouping, but a very satisfying supper.

The BT’s are actually supposed to be BLT’s.  But Lindz doesn’t care for lettuce, so we don’t usually have it around.  Personally, I like rabbit food, but I often don’t use it up fast enough, so we usually don’t buy it.  Nothing fancy with these, just good ol’ bacon, tomato, bit of mayo, and toasted bread.  Heart stopping goodness.

The pepper salad is a variation of a tomato salad that I often make.  I did a very coarse chop on four peppers, added some very thinly sliced red onion, a light drizzle of olive oil, pinch of salt, a few grinds of pepper, and some balsamic vinegar to give it just a bit of a bite.  All of this is to your personal taste, of coarse.  In case you haven’t guessed, I just swapped the peppers in for the tomatoes from the original recipe.  Dave put this on his bacon sandwich and seemed to enjoy it.  Not what was planned, but then I’m pretty easy going.

The conversation between Lindz and Dave as I was starting to come up with a meal plan went as follows:

Lindz:  Do you like green bean hotdish?

Dave:  What’s in it?

Lindz:  Green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French’s onions on top.

Dave:  No.

Lindz:  What’s wrong with you?!?

So the bowl of steamed green beans was for Dave.  Like Lindz said, all that went into the hotdish was two cans of green beans, one can of cream of mushroom soup, and enough of French’s onions on top to cover.  Bake at 375 degrees F until it bubbles (about 10 to 15 minutes) and serve.

This was one of the days that we were working up on a roof.  So, by the time I got home, I hadn’t eaten in six hours, drank a gallon of water and was still dehydrated, and I had a beer while cooking.  Talk about a cheap buzz.  This is just the set-up to what seemed like a really good idea.  And as it turns out, it was.  I sliced up a couple of jalapenos and fried them in the bacon grease.  They went great on the BT.

Spicy, bacony goodness.
