This Christmas was exhausting. Wonderful and exhausting. In the few days leading up to Christmas, I spent a lot of time with my mom, aunt, and cousin shopping, cooking, eating grapefruit, and doing puzzles together (on top of working my usual 8 hours a day). Christmas morning we got up early, made cinnamon rolls and fried pepper bacon, opened stockings, and unwrapped gifts. My cousin created a really nice Christmas for all of us.
But after dropping my mom off at the airport yesterday, I immediately came home and napped for two hours. I left a friend’s Christmas dinner party early last night, was asleep by 10 pm, and slept until almost 10 am. It was wonderful. Magical.
Tahini Toast with Honey
- 1 slice of hearty bread
- 1 glob of tahini (~1 1/2 tablespoons)
- Honey salt (or plain kosher or sea salt)
Toast your bread well, or to your liking. Spread with the tahini and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with a tiny pinch of salt. I used honey salt – thanks Santa! Serve with a cup of warm tea or coffee and enjoy slowly.
