Ok, people, so here’s a little quiz for you. What is wrong with the following picture:

I admit it.
I am a bread addict.
I am very critical with my bread, because bread does not equal bread.
I’ve been looking around at different stores and I have been somewhat successful in finding bread that is pretty decent. It’s nothing compared to German bread, but it’s pretty good. Anything is better than ‘white bread’ [= toast], right?! Please bear with me, my dear American readers, I don’t want to sound rude, but you just don’t have real bread in the US. Coming from the land of bread, I am just not easily satisfied ;)
This up there is my latest discovery. When it caught my eye, I was a little bit confused by the label? “Schwartz Brot”? What is that? But I didn’t want to argue over the label, because it looked, smelled and felt pretty good. It’s a mixed rye and wheat bread with a crispy crust and a dense texture. It tastes pretty good, too :)
I haven’t found a store yet that sells the flour that I need to bake my Mom’s “Schwarzbrot” [black bread = whole grain bread] which looks like this, but I’ll keep looking. Oh, it’s so yummy.
Oh yeah, talking about baking, I’ve baked my first Christmas goodies this weekend. It’s the 2nd of advent and I thought if I can’t have my Dad’s homemade cookies, I have to bake some myself :)
We put up some Christmas decoration this weekend and it rained yesterday, so it felt a little bit more like winter! We spent most of the day with J’s parents yesterday and J’s Mom and I did some Christmas shopping. It was fun, but I am still not done and I do have to get my Christmas cards out this week… so be in the lookout, you might get one as well ;)
