If there’s a good place to get fresh bagels in the Antelope Valley, I haven’t found it. I’m not sure anyone’s even trying!
But one of my treats to myself this holiday season was a small package of smoked salmon from Trader Joe’s. I had it on thinly sliced oven toasted bread (that par-baked kind TJ’s sells) with cream cheese, tomatoes and onions. Mmmmm!
