Today's Holidays November 28

National French Toast Day We propose a toast to National French Toast Day! While dedicating Nov. 28 to the cinnamony-sweet breakfast treat is a recent tradition, French toast has been around a lot longer than you might think. Turns out fourth-century Romans enjoyed dipping stale slices of bread in milk before frying them up in oil, just as we do today. In other words: Here's another "French" dish that, just like fries, didn't originate in France (where French toast is actually called pain perdu, or "lost bread".

So, next time you have some stale bread lying around, do some delicious recycling with the recipes below. Whether you use sourdough, challah, baguette or even wheat bread, you’ll save that loaf from an early death... and your taste buds (not to mention kids) certainly won’t complain. http://www.today.com/food/8-sweet-recipes-celebrate-national-french-toast-day-1C7304517


National Day of Giving.

but, there are a few (and I mean very few) things to pick up today. Like new slacks for work and AA batteries (I always stock up on black friday on these).
