This post originally published on a previously-owned blog and was imported here to simplify my life. My family eats much healthier than this nowadays, but I include this post for memories and history. I hope you enjoy the content!
It’s an exciting morning!! A few months ago, I received an invitation to Jenna’s virtual baby shower. Jenna is one of the bloggers I’ve read the longest – we share a lot of beliefs and opinions, not to mention she has a terrific talent with words. Her articulation and descriptive storytelling is becoming a gift less and less common in this world with texts and tweets. It’s refreshing and encouraging. I’ve also begun enjoying reading some of Veronica’s posts, the sweet girl who has put in the effort of coordinating this shower!
Because several of us wanted to shower Jenna with our love and appreciation of her from afar, a virtual gathering was the perfect solution. I haven’t been able to resist the mini/baby theme – a few days ago, I posted these mini cinnamon rolls and today I’m officially sharing these Baby BLTs! Aren’t they cute?
I had originally tasted them when my mom made them for appetizers before a big holiday dinner (maybe Christmas last year?). They’re pretty easy to make and, if you don’t have a food police guard, get consumed in a flash. I cooked the bacon in the oven (via these instructions) to be able to do more at a time and have less mess.
There are several variations of Baby BLTs out there in the world wide web, but this is the one I went with. One thing it didn’t mention that I discovered is that a grapefruit knife is an absolute must in the process of hollowing out the cherry tomatoes – made the job super easy.

Jenna, I hope that your pregnancy continues to go smoothly and I pray the birth is beautiful. May God give you and hubby the strength and wisdom to raise up precious Alice into the God-fearing models that you already portray. Happy Shower Day!
