One of the things that I love about S + I is that we are still learning things about each other, even over six years of knowing one another. One of these weekends after we got married, S was in the mood for some fresh bagels from the store and cream cheese on the porch. He went to the store to pick up a bag full of assorted types of bagels while I got the luxury of waiting at home reading. He picked some bagels that he knows I like including honey whole wheat and cinnamon raisin. Thinking about it, I asked him if he knew what my favorite bagel was. I told him poppy seed - and just like that my husband learned something new about me.
I love poppy seeds so much that it's something I like to have on hand. It's a bit of a strange staple for most Americans to have in their kitchens, but it reminds me of the poppy seed muffins and poppy seed bagels my mom used to always have at home growing up.
Having poppy seeds on hand has its perks, like the random craving for lemon poppy seed bread. I was home one day, cleaning, vacuuming, doing dishes, when suddenly it was 1:00 pm and I hadn't eaten anything. The only thing I had an appetite for at that point was homemade lemon poppy seed bread. The recipe I use is from Joy Of Baking because it isn't a complicated recipe and it always comes out delicious.
I have a work weekend ahead of me with a very special wedding. All of my weddings are special, but this one is for the books - trust me. We have a group of amazing vendors coming in all hand picked by an amazing bride. I hope that your weekend is just as lovely as mine is about to be.
