Today the kids and I made bagels. I have always been fearful to attempt this, but my sister in law said that it was easy. So, not to be out done, I decided to give it a try. Other than heating up my kitchen it really was quite painless. Hero and Jericho enjoyed rolling the dough into balls and making "O's". They even found it fascinating to watch as I plopped their creations into the boiling water. I think that making your own bagels is the best way to go if your children are carb addicts like mine. It really is cost effective and the bagels taste better. The only thing you have to give is a little time.
