I was a bit flabbergasted yesterday morning, when I realized I had nothing to blog about (other than the weather). One daughter joked she would do something funny, but sadly got on the school bus and left.
There I was, staring into cyberspace, sucking down strong coffee, attempting to will myself into a long walk on the treadmill, when it hit me - bagels.
I have had a draft on my blog for over a year. I have wanted to make them and never had the time or energy, so Thursday was the day. It was raining (of course) and my day was mostly indoor work with slip sloshing around outdoors with the pups.
Perfect solution to a gray day. I had planned leftovers for dinner, had most of my regular chores done, so off to the kitchen I went.
I could not, for the life of me, find the recipe I saved in my bookmarks. I ended up trying the "New York" recipe I found by googling homemade bagels. I want to try the King Arthur recipes too, but decided on this one first.
My family is spoiled. These would be great for breakfast sandwiches too.
