Other than the aesthetics,these bagels turned out great
Fried eggs on a homemade toasted bagel for breakfast
I usually make white bread, but a few weeks ago my wife found a recipe for honey oat bread. I was happy to use honey, rather than sugar, as it is one more local ingredient. I know there is information addressing honey as a sugar substitute in bread (the white bread I've been making uses about 4 tablespoons of sugar), but I never ventured to try it. So, with a recommended recipe, I tried and the family liked.

When placing the dough to rise on the window rack, we saw a red-bellied woodpecker visiting the suet feeder.
Of all the birds that visit our feeders, the woodpeckers are my favorites.

We should be good on bread until next weekend.
