Who wants bagels.

I thought I would try my hand at making bagels today. I think they turned out pretty good after you make the dough in the bread machine, boil in sugared water for a minute and then bake in oven for 25 minutes, they came out great. Taste pretty good too. I had two.

I finally got a box from Gracie in Arizona which only took a month to get here. I took around trip to the sunny state of California. I guess it wanted to go surfing or swimming in the warm California weather. Anyway, It finally arrived at my door after a very long wait for both me and Gracie. I love all the lovely items that where in the box and we got a great kick out of the Arizona Snowman. Thanks so very much Gracie. I will treasure all these wonderful gifts. Big hugs to you.

These are all the lovely items Gracie sent me and it only took a month to show up. It had to go to California first then to Canada. I don't know why but this is the second parcel that I have had go to California (not from Gracie)  what is the postal service doing?

Well, I just made some lasagna for supper. It will be good on a cold winter's night.

You make a mess but the end result is a good meal. I hope everyone has a great day. Will see everyone later. Next time I will have some stitching to show. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Hugs.

It would have been fun opening the parcel up.So glad you are making good progress with your shoulder.Have you been getting a lot of snow. The TV news here every night has been showing us some terrible conditions around the world. Mother Nature is making herself known that she is in charge I think. It is HOT ++ here in N.Z.
