I had a BLT on whole wheat toast. I cut the tomato in half at the equator and took out all the seeds. I baked the bacon in the oven and didn't nibble on all of it before making the sandwich. I couldn't find an open jar of pickles, so I substituted some "Hot Mixed Vegetables In Oil, Antipasto Calabrese" from a jar. I really enjoyed that meal.

I had some tomatoes that were slightly soft, so I slow roasted them in the oven. Costco has pretty decent cheese tortellini, which is done after 3 minutes of boiling. We added two tablespoons of pesto, a bit of garlic powder, the roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, and fresh cracked pepper. It turned out better than I hoped - in fact, I would be willing to serve it to company.

Had some of the taco meat that never got frozen. I love these little 'boats'. They keep forever, don't seem to need to be frozen, just keep seal them in a baggie, take what you need.
View attachment 68890 Had 2 or 3 of these, meat, cheese, tomato, napa lettuce leaf.
I’ve seen those and wondered if they are seasoned or if they have a neutral flavor.

I was thinking about them as a dessert cup.

Very neutral flavour, well as far as a soft taco goes, I guess. You could probably bake them and add a dessert/salad... They are oval so keep that in mind. I find they are a lot less messy, easy to fill. Can still leak out but - t my mind- a lot neater. They are 2 bites for a big guy, 3 bites for me, 4 bites for being dainty (as long as the innards don't slop out too much.)

They also have them in large cones shapes too. Tried them once - they hold a lot, might be more popular with families. In my opinion, difficult to fill so as to get evenly distributes bites .
