Lunch And I'M Not Saving

Hot weather has returned
and quick trip to town this morning with the thoughts the traffic will be bad the next 5 days.
It was really bad already and I thought where are all the people coming from and going.

On the road scenes of tobacco loaded on wagons, hanging in barns,  smoke from the barns and
rolls of hay in surrounding fields.  I enjoy the the country view but so warm
for those working in tobacco at this time.

Could not hardly wait to return home and it was past normal lunch time.
Quickly assembled
Rye bread, fresh mozzarella cheese, avocado, crisp bacon,  my tomato (which will soon be gone)
a little black pepper,  drizzle of olive oil and lettuce - it looked so good and I took a picture :)
Past memories of my grandmother and mother saving special gifts.
I am guilty of this also as I have several beautiful items I rarely wear and need
to wear them daily and not save.   My beautiful apron, a gift and I had thoughts
of saving.    I am not going to as I love wearing it and the big pockets are a plus.
I may be wearing it daily :)

So the day continues with my dental hygienist bringing me 3 dozen ears of corn.
Can remember in the past always putting 12 dozen or more in freezer.
Can no longer handle this amount and cutting off cob, blanching and freezing.
This amount will be plenty for me and if family arrive soon...

Yes, the apron was made to be worn by someone who would love it. Glad it fits so well and the pockets are a plus for you. I'm guilty of putting back my new quilts and sleeping under old ones with tattered ends.

Love your picture! & apron. Love the idea, not to save.

The sandwich looks divine and delicious.

Take care of you.

Yes, we must use those treasure so that they can create other memories. No use sitting in a drawer!!

The foods you prepare always look wonderfully delicious...a talent of yours, no doubt. The apron is a perfect fit...just wondering about all the things that will end up in those big pockets. lol
