  1. Beautiful bread (why is bread so expensive in this country?)

    Speaking of veterans... The War, a Ken Burns film, is being shown on PBS this week. It's wonderful (and very sad).

  6. Wonderful photos of the bread. Makes me want to tear off a chunk to go with some goat cheese and fruit, maybe a bottle of wine. That's what folks are talking about over at Menton Daily Photo, too.

  10. Greetings from Joensuu and thank you, Kate, for your visits my blog, i appreciate it very much.
    You are so inventive making your posts, it`s delightful to come here.
    Our everyday bread is still a rye bread. I know, that it`s not commonly eaten, but because of our northern latitudes we can cultivate rye much better than wheat, which can grow only in the southern part of Finland. A location determines much in many things of customs and history.

    Happy days to you, Kate!

  12. Looks like Ciabatta bread and French Baguettes; they look wonderfully delicious. I am hungy now. Thank you for this history reminder. Often, I believe we tend to forget about our recent past.

  13. I agree with what everyone else said! Why is bread so expensive here? Why can't we find more little places that sell bread like this? One thing I saw in La Coruna, Spain that I'd never seen before were bakeries that had HUGE loaves of bread. You could go in and request 1/4 or 1/2 or even one slice, and they would cut it for you and charge you by the weight. Could you imagine finding that in the States?
