so this is the first post in a new series about the various foods i’m binge-eating at the moment.
i’m not a fad eater in the sense that i go on popular diets, but i am the kind of person who eats one thing obsessively for about two weeks, with the recipe getting more and more complex and wonderful until i have achieved culinary perfection, and then doesn’t eat it again for a year. i am currently doing this with bagels.
it started innocently enough. husband brought home bagels for our eldest son, who excitedly ate one. i suddenly had the idea to go to holland and barrett, to pick up some vegan soft cheese to spread on one. it only went downhill from there.
from a simple toasted bagel with cream cheese, it evolved into cream cheese plus sliced tomato, salt and pepper, then tofurkey slices became involved, then a red onion came into the picture, then i found radishes in my fridge…yeah. i’m now on three fully loaded deli-style bagels a day. help.
i’ve just sent my husband out for capers. nothing good can come of this.
