The day after Thanksgiving may be the toughest time to cook for people who have hosted the big feast the day before. In my family, my stepmom calls it her day of rest. Her baguette french toast is the absolute perfect solution to keeping us all well fed with minimal effort on her part. She uses leftover (if there is any!) baguettes from dinner and throws any fruit she has in it, our favorite are blueberries! The best part about this breakfast, or brunch, is that you can make it the day before and pop it in the oven when you're ready to eat.

Every Thanksgiving, my mother Ann (Nana) would make the tastiest pumpkin bread ever. Our family loved it so much, we'd ask her to make it again for Christmas!

Indian meals are an elaborate feast for the eyes and the mouth. Flavors and spices play a large role in every meal, even if it is a simple omelette at breakfast! When our team was in India, they had this delicious omelette one morning and raved about this twist on a traditional American omelette.

Instructions
  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl until frothy. Excluding the oil, add the rest of the ingredients. Heat oil (or butter) in a frying pan.
  2. Once it is hot, reduce heat and add egg mixture – swirl it around the pan. Cook on a low to medium flame until the sides are cooked and the underside is slightly brown. The center may appear uncooked and liquidy, not to worry! Slowly flip over and cook the other side for 30 seconds.
  3. Fold the omelette in half and flip onto a plate! Serve with fruit or bread. Note: You can add any vegetables you have in the fridge!
