Summer Eating

Two favorite comestibles right now:

1. What I like to call my ABCD-LT sandwich.
Ingredients: Avocado, Bacon, Cucumber, Dill (fresh), Lettuce, and Tomato. Mixing some fresh dill and lime juice into mayo and smearing a little inside is also excellent.

2. It has taken 30 years, but I am finding myself obsessed with sweet tea. I know, I know. As a lifelong southerner, I should have been obsessed long before now. But what can I say? I just didn't love it. This is how I make mine:
      a. Place 3 family size tea bags (regular or decaf, it's up to you) in a pitcher of your choice.

      b. Pour 4 cups of just boiled water on top and let the bags steep for 3-5 minutes.
      c. Then add 2/3 -3/4 c. splenda or sugar (since I don't like to drink my calories, I prefer splenda) and stir until dissolved.
      d. Add another 4 c. cold water.
      e. Pour into glass filled with ice. Add fresh mint or basil if desired.

What are your favorite things to eat this summer?
