Why has it been a couple of weeks since my last post? Well, I unintentionally had somewhat abandoned my bagel mission because I was trying to eat clean over the last couple of weeks; including cutting out bread. How did I do...? Well, let's just say there were good days and bad. I can say with certainty that my discipline is not what it was when I was in my twenties. Of course, my priorities were not the same as they are now. And even though I'm now "a stay at home mom" I had a good routine to my life, it seems like, more than I do now. What am I getting at? Well, when I first started this blog it was to focus on bagels and where to get a good one and maybe write about some of my highlights, challenges, and fun in baking and cooking. I had received some [unsolicited] advise from some friends and family to write a blog about being a new mom and talking about some of my everyday life challenges as well as my crafting and cooking. However, I decided to stream line the focus of this blog and stick to one main topic. I might add a couple of pages on some other topics down the road, but for now I need to finish my mission.
As a reminder, my mission is to seek out all the bagels Philadelphia (and perhaps a few surrounding towns) has to offer and write reviews on them. I still have a bunch more places to make it to and a few more places yet to find.
I'll also put it out there, that I intend on going on a "bagel crawl" with a trip to New York City, hopefully before the year ends. I'll be putting together a list of can't miss go-to places. If anyone has any bagel shops in mind that I should try please feel free to leave a comment and let me know.
Also, I was thinking it might be fun to get a group to come with me. So, if anyone is interested in spending a day in NYC to do some bagel eating, let me know! We could all meet in Chinatown and take the super cheap bus into the City.
