LGBT sandwiches

I posted LGBT sandwiches a long time ago. Only one person commented. So, you are now going to get a primer on this particular sandwich. For those of you who don’t know, the normal translation of LGBT is “Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgendered”. If that offends you, go somewhere else.

My sandwich is “Lettuce, Gravlax, Bacon, Tomato”. I’m feeling particularly feisty today. Peter and I have been partners for just 3 months short of 30 years. We have decided that if we are ever to be married it will be somewhere it is recognized, not the case here in Colorado. What the hell difference does it make to anyone else what the status of our relationship is? Don’t give me the bible stuff unless you’re willing to explain why it advocates slavery and stoning and the inferiority of women.

LGBT sandwiches (2 servings)
4 slices of your favorite sandwich bread
Gravlax, sliced very thin
4 slices bacon, roasted or fried until crispy
Some kind of lettuce
Sliced tomato
Salt and pepper to taste

We like to toast our bread, but that’s up to you. Do I really need to tell you how to construct a sandwich? I don’t think so.

This looks great. Thanks for the heads up re: the spelling for fennel. I've made the change. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Wasn't really sure what I was gonna see with the title...Congrats on nearly 30 years together.

I agree...what SHOULD it matter to anyone else what you and Peter do? Unfortunately there are a TON of people who are afraid and fear brings out the worst in people sometimes. Those scared people also feel like it's their business to tell everyone else what is right and wrong. Shame on them!!! Glad to see you standing up proudly!
Oh.. yes, and the sandwich looks and sounds wonderful!!!

Congrats on 30 years! WOW that's amazing! The sandwich looks pretty good, too :)

Way to go with the 30 years! Here's wishing you 30 more! It should not make any difference to anyone what your status is! Hope the marriage thing works out for you and Peter! And then they just stoned a woman for being out unescorted in Iran! There's something wrong with all of this.

BTW, I forgot about the sandwich. It sounds delicious and I'll be doing the gravlax thing soon.

Congrats on all fronts! This sandwich looks very good.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have no idea why it's showing up wonky for you, I've checked in three different browsers and haven't been able to get the same result so I can figure it out. :S It's white background like always.
