you don't know me. oh that ben folds.

a little more upbeat that i am used to liking my ben folds, but this is one of the poppiest duets in my playlist. it totally helps that regina spektor backs him up, and that, of course, his lyrics are seriously twisted and all screwed up, in true ben folds' romantic disaster style. kind of like my own life. yay.


have bagel. will eat.

as some of you know, the mini and i usually make a weekly trip to the local bagel store for fresh bakery goodness.  however, she is now spoiled like me and won't touch day-old bagels, which means either i have to make room in our jam packed freezer for the ones that are still fresh, or take the others to the office (where they get eaten but still, i am a little tired of feeding the co-workers.)  however, we now have turned the leftover bagels into something we both will eat - BAGEL CHIPS!  so simple yet so awesome, i am posting the recipe here so that i don't lose it.  because i will.

the mini's bagel chips - the image does not do them justice but before i could take any sort of artsy shot, we had eaten most of them

day old bagels, sliced as thin as you can into "bagel rounds" (see picture above) or any other thin pieces
olive oil or olive oil/butter flavored cooking spray
sea salt/flavored salt
pepper to taste (optional)
seasonings to taste (we have a slightly spicy dry rub mix that we love)

preheat your oven to 375 degrees
lightly oil a non-stick baking sheet or piece of foil if you don't have a non-stick baking sheet
spray/baste your bagel pieces with your oil or butter or spray
lay on baking sheet and sprinkle with seasonings
put in oven and bake till crispy - make sure you keep an eye on things so your chips won't burn (the mini hates them burned)

if you can resist, let cool.

perfect for dipping and putting cheese on.  (yum.  brie - L - pick some up)
