Bagels...bagels...bagels...what a delightful treat every now and then. And when thinking up the Brunch post for this week I couldn't get my mind past the lovely rings of joy. lol. Can you tell I'm a reformed addict? huh? lol. I have to say though I get very bored with the standard fillings and so I'm always looking for new ideas to stuff them with. Nothing wrong with just vegan cream cheeze...but I like something a little more.

So armed with a tub of vegan cream cheeze (Yes I know..but hang in there...) I decided to roast some yellow peppers off...ahem..OK I asked ML to roast them off for me, peel the skins off and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and toss to evenly coat and then leave the strips to drain overnight. And when I think of balsamic vinegar I always think of that was the next selection. Guest blogger Dev recently gifted me some of her home toasted pumpkin seeds...and were so delicious that I had to have a few strewn across the bagels.
