David

am I allowed to add capers?

Not only allowed. According to my wife, they are a vital part of the blend.

By the way did you know that capers are Nasturtium seeds. Or at least some of them.

By the way, I will contact some of my friends in Sydney to see where they get theirs.

"Born-again bacon"

Complete and total nonsense!

The only thing bacon does to a bagel is ruin it.

@Antedeluvian... "I grew up in a dim outpost of the British empire in deepest darkest Africa (David may take exception) "

Well I grew up in the same part of deepest darkest Africa and I take no exception at all, in fact I wear that badge with pride.  My co-workers are keen for me to take Australian citizenship because then I will have to stop asking them what they would do without Zimbabweans, every time I do something that they can't.  Unlike Aubrey I am from pure British stock (I may be rubbish, but I'm BRITISH rubbish!)  But I tend to emphasise my Zimbabwean heritage over my British to my Aussie colleagues.....

On the subject of Bagels I have to confess that I have never tried one, which as a closet foodie gives me some shame (pain, even... :-).  I can't say I have ever seen them In Australia (can any other Aussie readers point me towards a good vendor??)

However I like them already...anything which goes with smoked salmon and cream cheese (am I allowed to add capers?) i am sure will tickle my fancy.

I've heard that bagels are one of the objects in the kitchen most likely to be the cause of a trip to the emergency room, usually the result of someone not quite awake along with a hard bagel and a dull knife, leading to a slip of the knife.

For this reason I think OSHA should require bagel slicers in all corporate kitchens. (My actual motive is that if companies are required to buy a bagel slicer, then they'll think "well, we have the slicer, so we might as well buy some bagels for the employees).

 

Clearly I'm not on a Paleo diet, but I've heard Paleontologists don't taste very good anyway.

@antedelivian: Since "pain" is bread in French, it seems you have punned!

This works on so many levels, because Martin's (a.k.a. MeasurementBlues) puns are so painful LOL

I have no fear of a good bagel going stale in the lab. They're never left uneaten long enough for that to happen.
