Garlic Bread for One

When I was a kid, sometimes my mom would make me 'garlic bread for one' in the morning before school. I loved it so much...the buttery, garlicy taste on golden-toasted bread. And it's amazing how simple this is! 

Toast two pieces of bread.
While they are toasting, skin one garlic clove.
Once the toast is done, quickly place the golden slices on a plate and then rub them with the garlic clove. The crisp grains of the toast will shave off almost-invisible bits of garlic. Depending on how hot and garlicky you like your bread, rub more or less.
Butter the toast generously, and sprinkle over good salt (I like pink Himalayan).

I eat these often when I am alone, like I am now. My husband is on another business trip and so my meals are extremely simple and quick. 

I especially like to pair my Garlic Bread For One with a delicious, juicy Caprese salad.

Slice perfectly ripe tomatoes and spread the rounds flat on a plate. Cover with shredded fresh mozarella, a variety of pitted olives, salt, pepper, hacked basil, dried marjoram, some brine from the olive jar, and olive oil. So good!

It's storming here; loud cracks of thunder and bright blue lightening. Poor Boston was very frightened, but I managed to sooth him. He and Kiki are getting closer every day. I see a friendship on the horizon!
I'll share new pics soon.

Sending love out to you all...and garlicky kisses! :)
