Study Break Snack Time

I have been crazy busy preparing for my 15 page paper on Gynecological and Obstetrical Practices in Tudor England.  Phew.  That is quite a mouthful.

And so was this nummy snack I made.  I have been steadily working my way through this stack of books trying to decide which six I will use for my research.  Most of them are written in Middle English.  Not exactly light reading.







So I was definitely ready to give my eyes a rest.  And believe it or not, all that reading made me pretty hungry.

Which leads to this delicious and nutritious late night snack.







I toasted some wheat bread.  Put just a little bit of tomatillo salsa (extra spicy) on the bread.  Top with some sliced avocado.  Salt and pepper it and add a few drops of hot sauce.









Oh.  My.  Gawd.  This was so good.  The salsa makes the bread just a little soft and the creaminess of the avocado cools down the spiciness of the hot sauce.  I have to remember this the next time I have an extra avocado laying around.  So good.  Anybody have any other quick, nutritious and yummy snack ideas?  After all, I still have another six weeks before this paper is due and that is a whole lot of late nights.
