Eatabout

January 24, 2012

Such a nice day for a walkabout!

I asked Matt if he wanted to meet me on a lunch date last night and he suggested Bodo’s Bagels, a famous Cville bagel shop that we don’t frequent enough.

I picked up bagel sandwiches for us and took them to the bakery for eatin’

Poppyseed with cream cheese (a la NYC!) Sadly they don’t make pumpernickel, my fav. But the bagel was just as tender (Bodos uses the same water-technique that NYC bagelrys do (so they claim). This was perfectly doughy on the inside.

Honeycrisp!

Due to the delicious bagel, I resisted multiple breadboard sweets for dessert! A difficult task indeed.

I’ve been putting labels on bags and doing odds and ends around here. Note the red face – it’s hot!

Since I started my new commitment to cutting out most breads, bagels have been off limits. I love bagels. I will eat this one vicariously through you.

Enjoy this super warm weather.

Ahhh I’ve been wanting a bagel for ages! I keep thinking about buying a bag of Udi’s but I’m afraid I’ll eat too many bagels at once! Haha I guess I could freeze them and make them a treat!

Oh I am ALL about the NYC bagels! I had a few when I was visiting that were delicious. I really need to track down some place in LA that makes them the same way!

I love Boda Bagels! Whenever I would visit my friend in C’ville we would go there! So good!

I don’t know what it is about bagels and cream cheese that go so well together… for some reason bread and cream cheese just are not the same! And as a side note, I have not had a pickle in FAR too long ;) This lunch makes me very hungry :)

I MISS BODO’S! My favorite thing is their cinnamon raisin bagel with the honey walnut cream cheese. It’s like dessert. So good.

11 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles January 24, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Gosh bagels…haven’t had one in a long time…probably because there is no where here in my small city to find a good bagel…so sad! Cream cheese and bagels go together like cream cheese icing and Carrot Cake…yummy!

MMMMMMMM BODOS! We went twice (in three days) while we were home for Christmas and Kevin (hubby) went again last week when he was up there for work. Nothing is more C’ville to me than Bodos! I always order the same thing: Caesar salad (it is TO DIE FOR) and a turkey, mayo, lettuce and tomato on whole wheat! Reminds me of home :)

Haha! I started going on walkabouts too when I rented the first season of Lost. I picked up some raspberry white chocolate swirl bread today at my local GH. So yummy!

17 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 24, 2012 at 3:19 pm

I’ll be sure to visit Bodos (and Great Harvest of course) if I’m ever in C-Ville! We have a few cute local bakeries here with great bagels and I haven’t been to them in a long time. Might have to be an activity for me this weekend! Have a great afternoon Kath!

Reply

18 Hillary B January 24, 2012 at 3:19 pm

You gotta get the Caesar salad sometime – it’s super garlicky (and has homemade not-creamy dressing!) and little bits of toasted everything bagel are the croutons! YUM. Also, is this seriously the same town that had snow/sleet all weekend, and today it’s 65 degrees? It’s been a weird winter!

Hey Kath, Have you ever tried the famous Montreal style bagels? If you like your bagel sweet and chewy and you ever see a Montreal bagel in SC, you should try it!

Reply

26 KathEats January 24, 2012 at 5:38 pm

I have not heard of Montreal style! What makes them different? I’m in Virginia by the way – but I’ll look out for them when I travel

Reply

27 Lisa Freedman January 24, 2012 at 7:03 pm

According to Wikipedia “In contrast to the New York-style bagel, the Montreal bagel is smaller, sweeter and denser, with a larger hole, and is always baked in a wood-fired oven. It contains malt, egg, and no salt and is boiled in honey-sweetened water before being baked in a wood-fired oven, whose irregular flames give it a dappled light-and-dark surface colour.” From my experience (and I’ve eaten bagels in both Montreal and New York bagels) I much prefer Montreal bagels (and not just because I am Canadian). They are super chewy, dense and are especially good warm and dipped in sweet mustard. If I ever find a way to send you fresh Montreal bagels for a taste-test I will! (Sorry about the SC remark, I remembered the minute I wrote it!)

Interesting!! I’d love to compare them side by side : )

30 Gabby January 24, 2012 at 3:58 pm

New York-style bagels are the best! Apparently boiling the bagels before baking them is what makes them so soft and moist on the inside, like you said. I don’t know what your secret is at Great Harvest, but your breads are also SO moist and doughy and delicious. I almost cried when the one in Tulsa shut down, but I just moved to Ann Arbor and they have one here! I need to go pronto.

31 Carolyn January 24, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Gabby you are lucky to have moved where you did. The Anne Arbor Great Harvest is amazing… Very much above the norm…

32 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! January 24, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Mmmm poppy seed is the best! Either that or everything is my go to bagel variety! Especially all toasted up and crispy!!

33 Andrea @FrSeed2Stomach January 24, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I don’t eat bagels that often, but love to grab one whenever I’m back in NY visiting family. I love multigrain everything bagels (hard to find!) sliced and lightly toasted with chive cream cheese, sliced tomato, oregano, and some freshly ground black pepper. Tastes like a pizza!

34 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife January 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I haven’t had a bagel in forever. I NEED to remedy this situation!! Looks awesome.

35 Sarah (I Dream of Beets) January 24, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Dude, you’re killing me with these bagel posts. I miss bread! The local Great Harvest carried gluten free bread – we are in Boulder, for Pete’s sake – but with Paleo I can’t even eat that!

36 Cait's Plate January 24, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Oh my. That just gave me the BIGGEST craving for a fluffy bagel with cream cheese! And is it sad that the moment I read your title I thought “Just like John Locke’s Walkabout!”? Haha

37 Em (WIne and Butter) January 24, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Youre making me miss American bagels so so so much – you CANT get decent ones here. Nor can you get decent dill pickles.

I used to especially love ‘bialys’ … but I’m not sure if bagel places do them anymore! If not someone should bring them back pronto. :).

38 Julie January 24, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Love Bodo’s bagels! I’ve been there the few times I’ve visited Charlottesville, and I do remember their bagels being hard on the outside and soft on the inside (my favorite!!).

I bake my own bagels and slice and freeze as soon as they cool. Otherwise we would eat the whole dozen. There is NOTHING as good as a fresh bagel. Take one out of the freezer, 20 sec microwave and toast. :)

Reply

48 Nina January 24, 2012 at 6:38 pm

This may be me overreacting, but the “(so they claim)” seems unnecessary. Wouldn’t you be annoyed if someone said, “GH grinds their flour every morning at the bakery (so they claim).” Seems to tarnish the company a bit, no?

If the bagel was delicious, and from a fellow local/small business, I don’t know why you’d say anything to make people doubt the product. Small business need to support small business (like you two have been doing since you moved).

Hopefully it was tongue-in-cheek and I’m just being silly. Kind of raised my eyebrows, though.

49 KathEats January 24, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Nina this wasn’t meant in any negative fashion at all. I know nothing about bagel making in NYC or elsewhere so my comment was just saying that I’m not sure if I stated the process correctly. Sorry if that was confusing.

It may just be the way I read the remark “so they claim”, but it seemed unnecessary to me. I understand that you probably compete with their bakery in some way, and I’m all for capitalism, so maybe the remark was in the spirit of competition?? However, to me, it just seemed out of character for your blog. Hopefully I just misread the tone of the remark…loved the post otherwise! :)

Reply

57 KathEats January 24, 2012 at 10:25 pm

No, no I didn’t mean it in a mean way at all (I know nothing about baking bagels OR bread – that’s Matt thing). I just didn’t want readers to jump on me about the “real” way of making NYC bagels so I was just restating what their website said was their technique. Misunderstanding!

I am happy to see you love your pickles as much as I do. Have you ever tried Rick’s Pics. They sell at WF. The smokra and garlic dill pickles are amazing, as are the pickled beets. You’d love them all!

hey kath,
sorry for a second (and unrelated comment) but do you have a link to the post where you discuss net calories vs. total calories? i’m confused about the whole exercise then ‘eat back’ your calories thing — so how do you end up having a calorie deficit that way? i know you discussed this back in the day and it would be helpful, thanks!
