Pâte on Tomato Bread.

Sunday 12th June 2011

I’ve been a bit slack on photographing the snacks I make for my son, Zephy. Instead choosing to focus on the lunches and dinners. But of course, in between the former and the latter I make a myriad of treats.

This was his afternoon snack. He has a sandwich, or something carbohydrate based, at about 4.30pm everyday. Followed by a piece of fruit and a sweet treat; biscuit, sweets or piece of chocolate. This tends to see him through until 8.00pm when we have dinner.

The pâte here in France is a must. It’s corse, meaty and very rich. Exactly what a pâte should be in my opinion. The tomato bread is a Catalan ‘speciality’. And I say ‘speciality’ as they regard it very highly as something only the Catalans make. The bread is drizzled with olive oil then sprinkled with a little salt before rubbing a halved, ripe tomato onto the surface of the bread. It is very tasty but hardly what I would call a ‘speciality’. 😉

We ate our afternoon snack sitting in a field full of dandelions during half-time of a game of football between Mummy & Daddy against Zephy.

Guess who won?

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    The tomato bread looks interesting… but I would agree, hardly a ‘specialty’.
