Cafe con Leche and Cuban Toast

Cafe con Leche and Cuban Toast


Cuban toast or "tostada", is made with Cuban bread and butter and it is a typical Cuban breakfast. You team it with a delicious cup of steaming Cuban coffee with milk, "cafe con leche", and you have a wonderful combination. Yumm! 

I take this for granted since I can have this any time I want, but I know a lot of you don't have that option. I'm sorry!   I lived in Gainesville, Florida  years ago and it might have been in Djibouti, when it came to finding Cuban food! Other than that, Gainesville was a lovely, life-changing place, but I digress. 


So this was my inspiration.  I painted this impressionistic oil painting alla prima with gently textured impasto. No calories and wonderful reminder of this favorite Cuban treat! I can almost smell it!
