I really, really, really hate the fact that pretty much everything essential to being a vaguely content and functioning individual is now an aspirational video on some kind of social media. A quick jump into the shower with whatever shower gel was on offer that floated my boat (always, always, always the citrus smelling ones here, plz) and dragging a razor that has seen better days across my pits just doesn’t seem to be enough.
No, instead we should all be dropping oils into our hair and using a special scrubby brush and a slick of moisturiser really isn’t worth it unless we have also applied 4 other serums and potions and then we need to be ‘resetting’ our homes as well. Sort of like a hot shower and a quick hoover make us slovenly or something.
I promise you that you are doing just dandy, special offer shower gel and everything.
Which is why I feel a bit guilty telling you about my favourite breakfast; pan con tomate. It is quite simple, but it is the very definition of a bit ‘extra’. So if the thought of doing this makes you feel inadequate, please don’t. Peanut butter is delicious and this works on a day off.
But if you want a tasty, sunshiney breakfast that might make you feel like you are on holiday for 3 minutes while you eat it, I urge you to try. It is so delicious.Print
Pan con tomate
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1 large tomato
- 1 slice decent bread
- 1 clove garlic
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Toast the bread.
- Cut a small slice off the tomato and grate the rest of the tomato over a bowl. The skin wil remain in your hand, the delicious tomato goodness will go into the bowl.
- When the bread is toasted, rub with the garlic clove.
- Spread the bread with the tomato mixture and drizzle with oil and salt.
