A(n Easy) Quiz for the Day


Upon deciding to post this I had no expectations of stumping anyone. In fact I’ll go ahead and put the answer at the bottom. Anyway, here goes. Do you know what this two piece kitchen accessory does?

Sitting on a Paper Plate for the Task at Hand

Looks Like a Wicked Guillotine, Right?
Giving away the answer, I'll say it served very well after I brought home some poppyseed and sesame bagels. For the record, I realized the latter are far superior. The market, alas, only offered four and we wanted six for all the lovely lox (thin sliced smoked salmon) picked out at another store.


Poppyseed Overload
I love me some lox with capers and cream cheese. Technically, it’s Neufchâtel, but same difference. Yum.

Capers Add the Perfect Touch of Tart (if that's the right word)
Of course the tool is a bagel slicer, or literally a bagel guillotine. It’s not something I thought to purchase, but a long ago gift. I’m grateful because slicing at home keeps the bread from going stale so fast.

Have you ever eaten lox?

  1. I'm not a big fan of lox. I prefer my bagels (everything, please) with just cream cheese. Nothing else added.

  2. NOPE...I have not. I love a bagel with cream cheese but that is it. So...a bagel cutter, intesting. Strange looking for sure! haha

    2. haha....I buy bagels already cut! haha...LAZY! Actually I look at it as making my life easier, one less thing I haver to do. BTW I love bagels but tomorrow I am going to start working on dropping another 20 lbs so I am cutting out bread (my down fall) and sugar. Wish me luck.

    3. Oh, wow! I tried that after seeing my skinny brother and sister-in-law. I succeeded for maybe three days straight. ~grin~ Good luck!

  3. I've never tried lox. I have one of those, or at least I used to. It may have gotten lost in some move or other.

    1. Bummer. Buying them un-sliced keeps the bread so much fresher. Be well!

  4. I did not know what that awesome contraption was but I am telling you that all I can think about is that bagel with the cream cheese and capers... calling to me... big time! I have had bagels and lox but... nope. The husband is good with it. My favorite combo when it comes to bagels... an everything with butter layer first, cream cheese, and then strawberry preserves.
