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?
