Clock

In honor of my baby sister I got a clock. When ever she has come to my house she complains how I do not have a wall clack. Well those days are over

Hangs in my kitchen now.

Bagel Queen

I am the bagel queen! Yes as of yesterday I am. I say that because I have been wanting to make them for a while. Every time I would see them in the store I would tell myself “I can make them” and would refuse to buy, but it has taken me until now to make them. Yesterday I made white flour New York bagels and today I am trying half white and half whole wheat and I think than I want to try blue berry bagels next. I am on a total bagel kick!

Here is my first batch, they taste so good.

I had to grind the whole wheat flour. I have found I like fresh ground whole wheat over the stuff in the store.

Than these two showed up and were very helpful, they thought it such fun. I ran the wheat through twice other wise it does not come out as smooth with only one time through.
