Bagels?

What do you put on your bagels???

I have been craving bagels. Last week when dh went into town I asked him to stop at the bakery and pick some up. Now he says I'm weird cause I put cream cheese on one side and my grandmas strawberry preserves on the other then smash them together and eat it. That's the way my whole family eats them and I've never considered the fact that you could eat them with something else on them!?!?

 Isn't it something how whatever we ate at kids we think is the way everyone eats it and then when we get older we find there's other ways. I remember when I was first married and made chili and served peanut butter on crackers with it. DH thought it was really strange, but that's what my mom always served with it.

Now about bagels. I never had them growing up, and my first experience was cream cheese and smoked salmon. The first time I saw blueberry bagels I thought that was weird because I though bagels were always savory, not sweet. I've never had cream cheese and preserves on it, but I bet it's really good.

I'll have to go with your dh on this one-peanut butter with chili sounds quite strange to me.

I don't eat them very often at all. I think cream cheese is the only thing I have ever put on them.

We don't eat them anymore, but when we did we had cream cheese or butter on them. Sometimes the kids would make bagel pizzas with them.

 That's my point. Anything we haven't heard of may sound strange to us, but be delicious to those who are used to it. Like when I moved to Florida many years ago, black bean soup was something I had never heard of, but it was served at lots of restaurants. I later found that  Black Bean soup was traditional in Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Carribbean and Central an d South America. There was also a  recipe published in Fanny Farmer's  Boston Cooking-School Cookbook, 1896. So it really wasn't anything new, just new to me.

I understand your point, just sayin'...

Though perhaps the two non meat protein sources were complimentary?
