ABC Wednesday "X" is for "bread!"

Yes, honest, "X" is for "bread," because here in Serbia, the word for bread is written in the Cyrillic alphabet as "ХЛЕБ," prounounced "hleb." Here are two kinds of bread I buy regularly, a really good, moist, fresh-daily wheat one, and a lighter wheat flour (but not actually white) one. Yum. It's easy to get spoiled with such bread here.

Looks really delicious! I think I'm Serbian pronunciation challenged, though. "Hleb" is hard to say! The loaves look so nice against the blue gingham.

A very nice "X" post. I have not consumed Serbian bread, but I very much like European-style bread. It has body to it, and I am convinced is much more nutritious than the air-filled white smushy stuff many Americans seem to like. Give me something I can get my teeth into. "A loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou" did not include that stuff they call "Wonderbread!"

That's what this is all about - education!! Learning something new from each other.

Great post - and the bread looks tasty too!

Now that is a very unquie choice for today. Freshly baked bread free of addditives is so tatsy. X is proving to be the most inventive posting of all.

Perfect post for my first blog visit this morning. Thanks! Now can you toast it and pass the jam?

To Chuck:
You don't need to toast it - it's (supposed to be) warm when you bring it home and to smell gorgeously... the butter would just melt all over it:))

Anyway - nice photo, and it's almost dinner time... so, I'm thinking about ХЛЕБ :)

I could live on bread and butter. Especially if it is fresh and hot from the oven from a local PEKARA :)

Sorry for being such a comment loser while you were on vacation! I'm on vacation too and my computer umbilical cord has been cut:)
