Mini Tapas--Three Toppings-- Fall in Love with The perfect  Snack
This week is all about Small Bites-Canapes-Mini Tapas, yes!  I felt instantly inspired after buying my usual french baguette for the weekend.
Last Saturday after being treated to a lunch of french toast bread, fresh tomato and Spanish ham sprinkle with olive oil and spinach salad my palate became purely in joy. I actually felt revive by such delightful flavors. 
Days later a mini-tapas party -for two- at home :)

Toasted baguette slices topped with three delicious vegetarian topping--What could be better than this? 
Happy Mother's Day!!! 
Remember to Heart your Mom this week!
