Bagels from Heaven

Like I was rhapsodizing about last week, there's nothing better for a weekend breakfast than one sweet and one savory bagel. And since everything must be topped with avacados for me lately, the everything bagel was really super-fabulous. Why oh why is soy cream cheese so awesome?!

Meanwhile, I'm having a bit of a dillemma today about what to make at my parents's house for Easter dinner. I've been focusing much more on Passover (the planning of which has been helped tremendously since I purchased Isa's Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook) so I'm kind of at a loss, and I need to shop today! Here's what I have so far:

-raw crudites stuffed w/ herbed soy-cream cheese dip
-brussels sprouts w/ pistachios and lemon
-Coconut Macadamia Carrot Cake (from aforementioned VWaW)

But what for the main course? I want something spring-y but rich. Like asparagus risotto, or maybe pasta primavera. My folks kind of just want grilled portobellas and mashed potatos since they loved them so much on Valentines day, but I want to mix things up. I'll let you know what I came up with!

I think I mentioned it last time, but your sweet/savory bagel combos are a thing of total beauty! For that matter, I can't tell you how much it sucks living down the street from both of the legendary montreal bagelshops (St. Viateur and Fairmount) and not being able to buy wonderful bagels cause they both use egg! Argh, sorry, I whine. I suppose I should make my own. :D

As for springy stuff... the asparagus quiche from vcon has been going around lately? It looks springy and rich!

Those bagels DO look and sound fantastic. I would take one right now, yes please. :-)

Your dinner is shaping up to be fab. I like your asparagus risotto idea, very rice and savory, the perfect dinner. But the mushrooms and mashed potatoes sound great too......I'm too indecisive! It all sounds good.

Its so true about bagels- you have to be really careful because so many places use honey or an egg wash. Its a rookie mistake I've made before. As for making them at home? I'm up for the challenge one of these days, I bet they'd be awesome!
