2nd Man is baking again.

Homemade bread
Last week it was brioche, this week standard white bread with a touch of plain and one with Trader Joe's "everything but the bagel" seasoning.  That stuff is so good!  A mixture of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, salt, onion.

By the way, I'm getting 2nd Man to share his recipes, some are just straight from online, some are adjustments on his own.  We'll post soon. 

Garden fresh tomatoes
We had two tomatoes left from our last garden haul and of course everyone knows how amazing garden fresh tomatoes are no matter how you use them.  In fact, with our last sandwiches, several of you reminded us of the joys of the ubiquitous BLT sandwich...let's see:

BLT sandwich
BLT's for two!!!

They were so good.  There is something so satisfying about the combination of flavors that is so retro and so comforting at the same time.  

Thanks for the suggestions!  Now here's to hoping for the last few tomatoes this weekend.


  1. Now that just ain't right; showing a BLT when I'm hungry. Me, I like mine with a little Mayo spread on the toasted bread Please. :}
    I have been wanting a BLT ever since you posted that brioche bread. Has much as I hate to think of it; I'll have to make a trip to the grocery store today sometime. I like to get to the store right when they open but didn't quite make this morning. Too many other things to do here @ home first.

    Oh, by the way; we received 3 inches of rain yesterday.
    Enjoy your BLT sandwiches. Enjoy the day as well.

    1. I edited to add the mayo. Yes definitely it has mayo. It makes it delish! I hope you made it to the store. Going to do that this weekend. Like to go early too so it's not as busy. Glad you got the rain. I know y'all needed it too.

    1. Thank you, it was good (well still is, some of one loaf left, ha).

  3. Those loaves of bread are beautiful! I know they tasted absolutely delicious! 2nd Man is a kitchen genius.
    And your BLT’s are simply perfection! My mouth is watering just looking at the picture of them.
    Looking forward to 2nd Man’s recipes. That is so kind and generous of him. I gotta make his brioche bread!

    1. Aw thanks!! He appreciates that. I'll get the recipe soon. He kind of wings it off of other recipes he finds and it comes out great, ha.
