I was in denial about today being Monday all last night. I procrastinated going to bed, refusing to let our week of vacation come to an end. This morning I was so comfortable in my bed, there was a chill outside, and the last thing I wanted to do was get out of the bed and face Monday head on including lots of emails, errands to be run, and loads of laundry that are haunting me. But...life must go on and I made myself get up. Mornings like these call for easy breakfasts that I can throw together and not have to put a lot of energy into. Not to mention, I need a little does of healthy in my life this week after indulging in eating my way through South Florida last week (more to come about that tomorrow). This ricotta, honey, and cracked black pepper persimmon toast is the perfect start to my Monday and I think I might just eat it all week long.
I've already told you about my love for persimmons when I shared with you the persimmon spiced punch a couple of weeks ago, which would be the perfect Halloween drink by the way. Eating it on a piece of toast slathered with ricotta and then adding a little honey and cracked pepper just makes me fall in love with the fruit even more.
