to wheat, or not to wheat

When the right bagel comes along, what’s a gal with sinus issues supposed to do? You see, there’s this bagel guy in town. He doesn’t have a bakery or anything; he’s just a guy who is obsessed with bread. He had some at the final farmer’s market, but they sold out very quickly. I figured I was just outta luck, but then he posted on a local food board that he would have some bagels available this weekend. I e-mailed him, hoping to make it onto the special list, and today I received a mysterious e-mail with his address and three time windows for picking up the bagels. He happens to live near my brother, so yeah, I coerced him into picking up the bagels for me. The bagels got home safely, and I thought about throwing them into the freezer until my wheat restriction subsides, but then I thought, hey, these are spankin’ FRESH bagels, and they are supposed to be the best in town. Half a bagel won’t kill me! So I ate the bagel.

It was worth it, and besides, I’m sure they are organic and whole grain. Heh.
In fiber news, I met Action Hero Melissa at Bolt, a very cute local fabric store. They had a Michael Miller trunk show and thus had some really great items made with new Michael Miller stuff, including some very soft, fuzzy fabric that is ideal for sweatshirts or blankets. I bought some of the disco dot fabric in a shiny polyester:

You can see how shimmery it is. I’m planning to use it as lining in a jean jacket one of these days.

    ah man! the bagels look amazing-and I was at bolt today, I must have just missed you? and why is it funny to hear you talk about a jean jacket? it just is.

    Oh man, I haven’t had a decent bagel since 1997 (when I went gluten free). Sniff. They look fabulous.

    Ooh, that would make for a killer jean jacket! I love how you come up with uses for fabric I never would have thought of. Once I move and have a place to set up my sewing machine, I’m gonna go through all your archives for ideas…

    Oh my those are some killer looking bagels. I’m with you, those can’t hurt you, they can only help by making you happy and increasing your endorphins. Are you wasting away with no sugar and wheat etc.?

    bolt is just blocks from my house.
    bagels freeze really well. I have a dozen in the freezer from my last trip to Siegals in Vancouver, BC

    Hi there – I’m de-lurking to ask you a question. That fabric store you jsut posted about looks awesome… any other recommendations for someone planning a trip to Portland? I’ll be there for about a week – I’m thinking probably in June.
    Love your blog by the way – your funky sewing stuff is fun to see come to life!

    Red flag. You have used the terms “wheat” and “sinus” in the same post. I like the first and suffer with the second. Am I supposed to be off wheat, at least until my sinuses settle down? (Please say it isn’t so.)
