Bagels, Bagels, Bagels


Until I got married, I had never had a bagel. The first one I tasted was awful, so I never tried them again until we moved to Las Vegas in 1987. There was a great bagel place - Bagel Oasis - near our house, and they had wonderful bagels. Since then I've tried other bagels, and I tend to like certain kinds.

The one above - honey wheat with lite cream cheese -is from STAR BAGEL in Sylvan Park in Nashville. They have great bagels, as the crowds prove every day. In the next week or so, I'll be doing a tour of Sylvan Park.

ASIDE: Thanks for your comments about Kasey and about my shoulder. I am, unfortunately, out of town, and the vet and I are playing phone tag. She is doing okay and is better under their care than at home right now. My shoulder is healing a little more slowly than I want, but I am quite impatient. ;-) I cannot wait to get rid of the sling. Typing with one hand is driving me crazy!

My DH is a big fan of bagels, too. My favorite bagels are blueberry.

I'm sorry that you're healing is progressing slowly. Just think, you'll be all ready for summer fun! BTW, my older son is looking at jobs in Nashville. I would not mind him living there one bit. :)

I love bagels, all kinds, well not the heathly ones.

Bagels were something I really missed when I lived in France. Although I sort of forgot about them for awhile with all the lovely baguettes.

Now bagels are pretty much the only kind of bread my husband and I eat. We frequent Jackson's one and only bagelry, the Beagle Bagel. The original beagle was from NYC, so the legend goes...

Good to know Kasey is improving, Chris. Hope your sling comes off soon.

I've had bagels a few times - just plain ones - in London and in NY - and found them rather dry and boring but then I've never had blueberry ones or any other flavours so obviously something to try before I die! The photo makes these look very tasty!

Fun photo! We are bagel fans here. My daughter and I like to try new flavors.

Well, maybe Kasey and you can both enjoy a bagel together real soon. Neat post.

Never had any kind of bagel.
Talvez quando venhas a Portugal tragas um bagel escondido na mala! :)

Love bagels.

But then, we have a local place which does them 'The NYC Way.' And they show it. :-)

Sorry you are healing more slowly than you'd like. But... I am sure you would be for rushing it, if you could. No, no, can do. :-)
