I had a California BLT today and it was the most delicious torturous thing I’ve eaten in a long time.
For those that don’t know a CA-BLT is a BLT with Avocado and Pesto Mayonnaise. This was served on a honey wheat brioche. Very yummy.
However, I am highly sensitive to tree nuts, since they don’t make my throat close up or kill me the doctors won’t call it an allergy. I generally get really sick to the stomach and feel like I have something lodged in my throat if I eat tree nuts. Guess what’s in pesto? That’s right tree nuts or pine nuts. I knew this going in, but I really love the way that CA-BLT taste so I ate the sandwich until I got sick to my stomach.
So now I’m nauseous and I got that weird feeling in my throat.
It was so stupid, but somethings are worth the torture.
I guess I shouldn’t do that just in case my sensitivity turns into an actual allergy, but that’s a problem for another day.
