Sunday Morning Bagels

Long time, no post...

Its been a whirlwind, to say the least...  but it looks like Kitchen Hell will be moving up in the world!  No, not the blog-world, but the real world...  Let's just say that teeny tiny kitchen?  We'll be upgrading.  and the 2nd biggest greenmarket in NYC?  Right outside of our front door.  Cooking won't be the hell that it is today and we can't wait...

As a result of the impending move (to an apartment we chose 50% based on its kitchen alone), we've been hard-pressed to do much of anything in our current tiny, cramped, half-sized-appliance kitchen and as a result, there's been a lot of eating out, ordering in, frozen dinners and pasta (boxed) with red sauce (from a jar)...

Quite frankly, frozen Amy's dinners, while yummy in their own right, don't make for the best blog fodder...

Our weekend morning rituals haven't been much better than the dinners - pretty dependent on our local diner and bagel shop and when you can be served really good, still-warm-from-the-oven bagels by walking about  2 blocks from home (and barely beyond the store where you would have to fight your way through the crowds to buy anything to make at home) it's really hard to motivate to do anything different...

However, this past week, someone posted a bagel sandwich that looked so good that it was just the motivation I needed...  I needed that bagel sandwich...

This isn't earth shattering, it's not life changing, so why am I posting it?  Because, frankly, it was so good that we've already talked about how we should really be sure to keep these ingredients in the house from now on...  Even when cooking isn't the hell it is today.

With this one, the tiny smidgen of motivation it took paid dividends...


Sunday Morning Bagels

2 everything bagels

~1/2 c whipped cream cheese
1/2 of a ripe avocado, sliced
a few paper-thin slices of red onion

lemon pepper

***
Slice bagels in half

Spread half of the cream cheese onto each bagel - covering both sides of the bagel (i like a lot of cream cheese, 1/2 c might be more than most people need...)

put half of your avocado slices onto one side of each bagel

sprinkle a few slices of the red onion over the avocado (this is optional - Jordan doesnt like raw onion, so he skipped this...)

Sprinkle the avocado and onion with a generous shake of lemon pepper

Close bagels up, slice in half and enjoy
