Thank you Mom!

Dear Mom, thank you for teaching me how to cook, bake and use my resources. Thank you for the knowledge you have passed on and continue to pass on.

Today I wanted an egg on a bagel for breakfast but unfortunately for me, there were no bagels in the house. Well, it turns out not so unfortunate. I think to myself, how hard can it be to make bagels? I hopped online this morning, found a bagel recipe that appeared to be pretty easy and I had everything I needed to make it. So I did.
Flour and Yeast
Salt, Sugar and Water

This is what is looks like before you add the rest of the flour and before it gets messy.









Hand mix in the rest of the flour, dump it on a lightly floured surface and knead baby knead!


So I depressed the center with my thumb then put it on my finger and spun it around. I felt like a little kid playing with my food...it was fun :)










let the bagels rise, boil in water and then bake!!!



TADA!!!!


Needless to say I finally got my egg on a bagel. It was tasty and although it was quite a bit of work for such a simple breakfast, now I have plenty for when I want another one.

OMG.... you and Cindy always make baking look easy, but every time I try it, it doesn't come out right. I don't care for bagels, but after reading that, suddenly, I want one. Hope all is well with baby and your little family. Hopefully we can see each other again some time soon. I had so much fun the last time at your parents house. Be happy, stay beautiful, and keep smilin.....
