I made this bagel with Kalamata olives. It was a revelation so good with a perfect consistency and taste. It is the first bagel I ever made and maybe the first bread that I have ever felt was perfect. Maybe it was the olives. They can solve anything. Not only did I make the bagels but I also made the garden herb spread with fresh herbs from my garden. The yellow grape tomatoes and cherry tomatoes were also from my backyard. The broccoli sprouts were from the jar next to my kitchen sink. To get more homemade at this point I am going to have to start growing my own wheat and milling it myself. This bagel with so different then the bagel you get at the store with its dying sprouts and tomatoes ripened by chemical sprays. Both the bagel and the spread are recipes from the new vegan brunch which I am starting to work through, everything has been great so far!
I also went camping this weekend at Krause Springs in Spicewood. It was the PERFECT weekend for camping; not to hot or too cold. I could sleep in my sleeping bag and still be comfortable in the morning. It was a weekend of readin’, napin’, and swimin’ the epitome of the Lazy Smurf lifestyle that I am constantly striving for.
Here is our lovely shady camping site And the hiking pathAnd some flowersAnd a little streamAnd finally the big smimin’ hole, complete with waterfall and rope swing
This is going to be the best summer ever!
Beautiful camping photos! And those bagels are the best thing ever.
Bagels? Yum. I need to get the brunch book ASAP. Krause Springs is beautiful. I think I will take Josh and the boys and go for a day trip. The pictures are lovely.
That swimming hole looks amazing! And the bagels look almost as good. I need to get on this bagel-making craze.
