Pan Con Tomate

When it comes to breakfast, I think I could be a Spaniard.

Several years ago, The Preacher had the opportunity to visit good friends in Spain. Of all the things he shared with me after returning home from the trip, THIS delicious breakfast from the Catalan region of Spain was the first. Paired with a cup of cafe con leche, pan con tomate offers a bit of comfort for the ol' wanderlust that still beats in this heart.
