Reasons to be cheerful, words and musings, some of them amusing.

For a proper bagel the dough should first be boiled then baked. Sadly a lot of bagels in existence are essentially bread rolls with a hole in the middle, at best using steaming instead of boiling.
The bagel was first made in 17th century Poland and made its way to the UK in the mid 19th century and to the US not long after.
The bagel above was bought by me and eaten by me in 2011, it was very nice.
