BLT Bánh Mì Sandwich

BLT Bánh Mì Sandwich ~ For what seemed to be like eternity my boys were only into simple sandwiches. You know the usual kids stuff; peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese, or turkey and cheese, but with age and maturing palates we are entering a much more interesting time in our sammie world. Hooray! Don’t get me wrong once in a while there’s nothing wrong with a good ole pb&j however, I am thrilled they are into spicing things up a bit. Last week I made a BLT in a bolillio roll but decided it needed to be ramped up a bit –– it’s time people –– thus, this BLT Bánh Mì Sandwich was created. It’s a simple roll loaded with lots of flavor. Mint, basil, bacon, tomatoes, jalapeños (which I seeded for the kiddos and they didn’t seem to be phased), and a slightly spicy mayo. We ate this for dinner and the next day they were both begging to have this packed into their school lunches. Watch how quickly it all comes together and grab the recipe below. 

Deliciously easy right?

Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri

Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri | LocalSavour.com

Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri ~ Sometimes we get in our own way –– we forget to slow down and we forget about all of the good things around us. The month of March in Texas is always a good reminder for us to do just that. The bluebonnets are popping out along the highways, the sun is starting to stay out a little bit longer, and spring is creeping into the farmers markets. With the weather and sunshine comes one of my all time favorite fruits — strawberries. This past Monday just so happen to be “National Strawberry Day” and I was reminded by host Lauren Petrowski over on Good Day Austin on Fox of this Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri that I made for my Blogoversary a while back. Pack up your car and head out to Sweet Berry Farm for some good ol’ berry picking and be on the look out in the next couple of weeks for these juicy pops of goodness around town. In the meantime, you can watch the clip below, grab the recipe, and get your patio ready for some leisure time with spring cocktails.
