Of Bagels and other great things......


Today I tried something new. Making my own bagels. Not a difficult task at all and they even came out looking like "real" bagels!

The kids were thrilled as they seem to be their mainstay as of late. Daniel thinks they taste better than store bought, Claire is not so sure but is not willing to give any up. Sam only says mmmmmm......

I finished a fabulous book this morning. The Kite Runner. Absolutely incredible story and such a great read. Our book club will be discussing it at my place in November, and I can't wait to hear what everyone else thought of it.

The kids were home today, and we couldn't have had better weather. Sunny, mild and wind free. The kids had a great time out in the leaves, and helping to drape the trees with cobwebs. Here's hoping monday night is as nice...

Homemade pizza night here at our house, followed by a movie and pop-corn. The kids have such funny tastes, Claire likes olives and cheese, Sam olibes (spelled that way on purpose) and bacon, and Daniel is willing to try just about anything. I'm happy so long as their are olives and hot peppers, and lots of veggies. Hud misses out as he is at work.

Mom was here for a couple of days this week, and the kids had a blast. Especially the last day when they discovered that she was very good at air hockey.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend......

LOL, we love playing airhockey at this house too. I find the adult men do ding up the paint cause they always send the puck a flying!

Man can I come over to your house? Homemade Bagels and pizza! I am so there. The Kite Runner was one of my favorite books! I even was able to meet the Author. I will send you a picture!

The bagels look great and I'm sure they taste great.
Better than store bought? Of course!!!

My daughter wants pepperoni on her pizza, and my son prefers just cheese, although he eats the pepperoni too. If I was having it just for me, I'd put everything on it, maybe even the kitchen sink. Pizza is my favorite food, and I like anything but anchovies on it. Yummy!

Have a happy weekend!

YUM! Homemade bagels sound wonderful! And so does pizza for that matter! I'm a veggie pizza girl myself. Minus olives!

Mmmmm, wanna send some to South Dakota? ;)

I love bagels but have never thought to try making my own. I bet they smell awesome while baking.
