LOL, nice story :) Great dog, you don't NEED the smoke detector, you have one right living with you then.
We once had one in a New jersey house that set off each time somebody made toast or scrambled eggs, very annoying. Made me wonder if it would have really gone off with a fire in the house.
Isn't there something eternally satisfying about handwoven dish towels? I just love it each time I dry my hands in the kitchen!!

It looks absolutely delicious (send a dozen, please, put it on my tab), but not like I remember. It's taken days, but I finally realize what's different: the perfection of the rise. The deli bialys of my past were sort of uneven all over the top with ups and downs. I don't know if that was a result of travel or something else. The onions look darker than I remember but that's probably just taste and local variation. Overall, an A on looks. Taste TBD .
