bacon, mushroom, and caramelized onion sandwich

The name of this sandwich would have had me running to the other room if I were a kid.  Good thing those days of culinary naivete are over.

Because this was so good.

I am just now getting around to making my New Year’s Resolutions. One of them is to eat healthier. I am sorry I am just now starting off the year on sophistimom. If I’m not mistaken, it’s February 1st.

On that note, I just want to thank you all for being so patient with me.  I know I have been gone for awhile, but I have not stopped thinking about my readers, and I have not stopped thinking about the blog.  Life has just been crazy.

Speaking of crazy things, I have recently moved into a basement apartment, and sadly, it has no natural light.  None at all.  And so for these bagels, I took some instructional pictures, but they kind of stink.  White balance on even the nicest of cameras, surely cannot make up for fluorescent light.  I want to cry.  So, after today, I think I will be skipping the instructional pictures unless I make the food at a friend’s house.  I live in Utah, so if there are any volunteers . . .

Okay, down to business.  Homemade bagels are delicious, and worth every second it takes to prepare them. White bagels would have been good, but my bloggie friend Kamran at the sophisticated gourmet made some awhile back.  When I make white bagels, I like to refer to his recipe.  They’re amazing.

Though I am a sucker for white bread, I am trying to be healthy right now, and that’s why I made these.  My kids prefer white bread too, but let me tell you, trying to wrangle that one in the picture out of the house so I could photograph it at my friend’s house was nearly impossible.  My kids kept begging me for more.  So if you want to get your kids to eat healthier, you may want to try these.
