Your welcome!I love bagels by the way,as a matter of fact I like them better than most breads.Although a good homemade loaf of bread is unbeatable.We do not want to get into too much on what is the best thing to put on bagels and homemade bread,it is too much for me to bear.<quoted text>THANKU PAD!!!! I would send you a bagel basket if I could!!!!!!Now that explains EVERYTHING THANKU THANKU THANKU
My grandmother whom I grew up with most of my life was Slovak,and she baked gorgeous black breads,pumpernikle and high topped white breads.(RYE I must also include).So I know all about perogies,Ham and Cabbage,Dince de Vani Meso,Keilbasa with potatoes,cabbage,carrots,beets ,all accompanied with homemade breads.
We lived near a Jewish bakery,they were from Germany,the cakes,pies and struedels(my grandmother made also)turnovers,pies were phenominal.The bagels were smaller than what we see in the Mid-west,very round shiny,when toasted fabulous.Cheese cakes forget it,the Cheesecake factory now popular in Chicago are similar.What can I say! I hope you guys don't go and overdose on that stuff now.Let's invite Dust Storm as well,he is probably a great guy,a little bit on the radical Catholic side,but knows how to have a good time as well.I am not fat by the way,surprising that I came from such a fun eating family!
