strawberries, mascarpone and whole wheat bread

This could also be titled, "what you should be eating right now."

Whole wheat bread (lightly toasted), spread with creamy mascarpone cheese, and layered with ruby strawberries. For breakfast, for snack, for a quick tea sandwich.

It is just so lovely. I wish I could say I came up with this on my own.

Leopold (Hugh Jackman) made this for breakfast for Kate (Meg Ryan) in the movie Kate and Leopold. The thoughtful gesture moves her to tears and it is my favorite moment of the movie. (But I do get a bit obsessed with food ideas from movies. Do you have a favorite food/movie moment? I'd love to hear about it.)

I love the simple perfection of summer food.
