Grilled Tomato Bread w/ Olive Oil y Garlic

Dscf0942One of the best things I have ever put into my mouth is the simple dish of grilled french bread smeared with tomato, garlic and olive oil.  It's a staple on most menus here and can be found in even the nicest of restaurants.  What could be more appealing that a toasted slab of bread that's drenched in extra virgin olive oil and literally hand-smudged with a tomato/garlic jam that's been marinating half the day.  It's always made to order and I've managed to make a meal out of this mouthwatering dish several times this week.  Toss in a glass of vino and you've got a match made in heaven.  Actually, make that--toss in a big batch of freshly-caught prawns, a small bowl of tart olives, a couple of chunks of thick Manchego--now that's what I'm talking about~
