Pack Your Bags!!


We are headed to Green Bay! Yippeee!


The Giants beat the Cowboys 21-17 yesterday and FINALLY I have some bragging rights. This whole season I have sat there with a sad smile as all my friends, down here in Texas, have harrassed me about the Cowboys winning the 2 reg. season games, and now... finally! My G-Men came through and we are about to take on Brett Favre! Woo Woo!!

--------------------------------------

Since I am on a Texas kick. Since moving here from the Northeast, there are a lot of things a girl has to get used to, and yesterday was just one of those days. #8 Why I am not too fond of Texas - yesterday all I was craving was a bagel. Like a good ole fashioned NY bagel. The cats had no food so hubs decided he would head to the store and pick me up an onion bagel at the grocery store...

Well, he comes home, I cut the bagel, throw it in the toaster and proceed to cook my egg. While I am cooking, however, I smell something weird. Like peppers and onions?? It was weird. I thought it was just my physcho smell, so I proceed. As I take my semi toasted bagel out of the toaster and place my egg on top, I realize the bagel looks a little strange. Then, I take my first bite. It is a freakin JALLEPENO bagel. Now who, in their right mind, would create a jallepeno bagel?? I really get that we embrace the mexican culture down here, but come on!!! I tell hubs, he said they only had that one, blueberry or something else. He smelled it and thought it was onion. UGH! Just an FYI for all of you chowing down on some delish bagels... don't take them for granted. A good bagel is fantastic start to a beautiful morning! A jallepeno bagel on the other hand... I wouldn't reccomend :)

Hey Andrea,

I'm sure it's cool to put a link to justJENN's recipe in your food blog for the Burger Bites. :-)

congrats on the ny giants win! and maybe a little thank you to jessica simpson?

thank you for letting me know how much we should appreciate the bagels we have up here - i like jalapenos but a bagel infused with them?

btw, ray charles' george on my mind is playing on your blog and it's making me very happy.

All my out of town relatives always stock up on bagels and knishes before they go back home. (And some live in update NY and still bring them back there, cause ours are better.) :)

And go GIANTS!!

Oh no, Andrea, there's jalapeño options for everything in Texas. There are even Texas style sushi rolls with jalapeños at most sushi restaurants.

Do you have an Einstein Bros Bagels shop by you? They have great bagels and the company is not from TX.

Oh man jallepeno bagels? Ew. I don't think I'd like that either. Gross.

Yuk yuk yuk.
The other thing I saw on my visit to Texas was pre-buttered bread, which struck me as a little odd!
