The Livin'- Oh, it's easy all right
Just in case any of you are wondering (I'm sure you are not, but oh well...) I have to agree with a friend of mine in that BLT's are the perfect summer evening meal. And to make them even more perfect? Replace the mayo with a schmear of avocado. Yuh-uhm. And, since I am in Iowa, Home of the Corn Palace-wait, actually I think that might be in South Dakota. Anyway, we are known for corn and right now is the time for getting a grocery bag full of "peaches and cream"- yellow and white kernels- from the back of a pickup truck parked on the side of the road. $4 for a baker's dozen. To me, this is summer in Iowa. Add to that the chirping of cicadas in the late afternoon/early evening, the sweltering humidity, the smell of hot weeds when you get anywhere near "rural", and bags of zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and eggplant that people anonymously leave on your porch when they know you aren't home to catch them.
