Day 324

Day 324 - Someone in my google+ Lunch Packing Community had posted a recipe the other day for BLT Pasta Salad.  It looked and sounded delicious!  I wish I could find the post so I could credit back to her.  I'll keep looking.  Anyway, the recipe called for bacon, mayonnaise and sour cream, that is a lot of fat jammed into a "salad"!  I used real bacon bits which are fairly lean and pack a ton of bacon flavor.  I replaced the mayo and sour cream with yogurt.  The recipe also called for cooking the tomatoes in bacon drippings.  I lightly sprayed a non stick pan with olive oil.  So all in all I think I lightened it up pretty good!  It was delicious!  D also has some orange jello with a couple of mini marshmallows and a clementine.


  1. Come at mine! There's a page on you... hUgs! Steffy

  2. Your blog has made me homesick! I'm in my first year of university and really missing the home-cooking, but will you come be my new mom please? ;) You're very creative and, speaking as a not-too-long-ago little girl, she may not realize at the moment the effort you make for her, but trust me she will!

    1. That's very sweet! Thank you so much :)

  3. I just found your blog on Pinterest.
    Your lunches look great!
    Did you post this recipe for the light BLT salad? I didn't see it...
