Caprese Omelette

IMG_2890

There doesn’t seem to be anything better than being woken up by the sunlight streaming through the blinds followed  with a fresh cup of coffee and breakfast in bed.  The fantasy becomes a reality about once a month and when it does happen, you can bet I take full advantage a peaceful morning, my favorite Italian coffee, fluffy omelets, and my mother’s homemade jam spread across lightly toasted Ezekiel bread.  The bright, bold flavors of this omelette were the perfect addition to my rare tranquil mornings.
