FIG + OLIVE TAPENADE. // (and the winner is...)

My friend, Abi, and I have recently started a little pen pal recipe swap. This is the first recipe she sent and I just had to let you guys in on the link so here it is. I followed the recipe exactly, except I left off the walnuts due to a certain nut hater around here. I really didn't have a special occasion to make it for so I had a little more than we could eat. I sent a good chunk of it on my in-laws trip back to OKC but we still had a lot...

I have been trying to use up everything we have in the fridge and freezer before the move so I came up with this tasty spin on a BLT. I will admit that I'm pretty proud of myself for putting it together. Dave said it was the best BLT he had ever had and if you know Dave, you know he doesn't say those things lightly (not even to me). ha. ha.

( oh wonderful... I had a pretty picture of the sandwich saved here and now it is gone. go figure...)

and without further adieu, the winner of the MijuAndYou giveaway is... Faye!!!
