Today is National Bagel Day!

Today is the day we worship the wonderful round donut-shaped carb that most of us buy on a regular basis.  They are the perfect breakfast, lunch, snack and sometimes dinner.  Fresh bagels that are lightly toasted and spread with butter and peanut butter are good for my soul.

I remember my first experience eating a bagel.  I was working at a summer job and one of the sales representatives just popped in from Toronto.  He brought us all freshly baked bagels from a bakery in Toronto along with a fresh brick of cream cheese.  OMG!  A bagel still warm from the oven with a huge slice of fresh cream cheese in the middle.  I was never able to replicate that experience.

Bagels are everyday comfort food--according to  Dempster's® Bagel Barometer, six out of 10 Canadians eat bagels on a regular basis with nearly a quarter eating these circular delicacies daily or several times a week.  With so many different kinds to chose from--plain, whole wheat, everything, cheese, sesame, poppy seed, chocolate chip, cinnamon raisin and even blueberry--who can resist!

Bagels are the best when they are toasted just right.  The Magimix by Robot-Coupe New Vision Toaster is the world's first see through toaster.  The toaster has extra wide slots that fit the thickest bagels, baguettes and toast and Woman's Day is giving away three of them.  The contest is open to both Canadians and Americans.  Be careful to press the no purchase necessary link on the site if you don't want a subscription.  This is a daily entry contest.
