Tempeh, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomatoe...mmhhhh!

I have tried to make tempeh "bacon" many times from many different recipes and it never turns out. So when I saw this product I had to give it a try. The verdict? Its really good. Pricey so we won't be buying it all the time but it makes a really great sandwich. The BLT was a favourite of my husbands and he really enjoyed the tempeh version as did the girls and I but we added avocado to ours which, imo, put it over the top.

Here is a close up of my sandwich. It was so good it was hard for me to stop and get a picture of it. Good thing me new camera snaps pics pretty quick!

And here is a picture of my plate. We rounded out the meal with a green salad tossed with a sweet onion vinegrette. And yes those are green olives on my salad. I love olives and I tend to put them on anything I can!

We're still enjoying the nice summer weather although its raining out today. The girls have their last day of swimming lessons tomorrow and we're all looking forward to having a few weeks off before school starts. I can't believe how fast the summer has gone by. We been very lucky the last few years, we've had incredible weather in Sept/Oct and I'm hoping it will be the same this year. Its rained so much this summer we haven't been out bike riding and playing as much as we wanted to but the fall is usually dry here so hopefully the weather will be warm so we can make up for some of that lost outside time.
