Just a quickie today..
E-CARDS: I love 'em. There is nothing nicer than opening your inbox the morning of your birthday to find dancing mice or Animal from the muppets wishing you a happy one. Plus, there is no paper to throw away! (Or if you are me, waffle about keeping forever in a box that you will never open until one day 10 years later when you finally decide to throw it out)
BAGELS: I made 'em. Last weekend. And they turned out pretty yummers. In terms of taste and texture they were spot on. The only thing they lacked is the shiny outer crust that you find when you buy them from a good purveyor. I'll keep playing with recipes- they weren't hard to make.
PS: Confidential to certain scotsmens,
Now you hold up your end of the bargain!
