Picnic Time!

I've joined Muse-swings' (http://muse-swings.blogspot.com/) cyber picnic to celebrate the first day of autumn. This is my contribution, a photo I took a short while ago at a History of Bread exhibit downtown. My favorite roll is the one on the left of the basket, which has the same taste as a soft pretzel. There's a pretzel there, too. There's still time to join the picnic! What will you bring?

I'm still trying to decide what to bring, but this bread looks wonderful! I might just snatch a piece!

Delicious! What a perfect picnic post! Bread is so beautiful, isn't it? I'm so glad you could join us. I'll be posting mine early in the morning (eastern standard time) and I've included a shortcut to everyone's post. I'll see you in other time zones tomorrow. We'll have a great day! Just one more bite of bread...maybe two. Yum!

I could sit and eat bread all day! There is a lovely selection here. Is there a Belgrade specialty? I read somewhere once about the prevalence of Albanian bakers throughout the former Yugoslavia, it sounds like a hard life, living away from their families.

Bibi said...

Webradio, it IS real bread! But probably a bit hardened.

Kris, Albanians in Belgrade, who have lived here for a long time, far before the Kosovo crisis, are known for running sweet shops that specialize in very sweet cakes; I'll try to post some.

Oh Bibi! This is just lovely! I actually miss living in Germany. They are such breadaholics too!

Wonderful! This bread looks soo dee-lish. I see a number of slices and rolls I want to try....including your favourite, the pretzel-y thingy. Mmmmmm.

OOOOH MY! My weakness...BREAD...MMMMM!
What a glorious feast we have here today...Stop by my picnic in Arizona USA for a rest in between bites...Thought we might do some sketching...anyone interested??? A glorious day...What fun! :)

Lavinia said...

You are in a very interesting location, and I was wondering, is that your dog in the photo? He is adorable!!

babooshka said...

Bread that can only be spread with butter, not margerine. They do look quite ornate. Definitely need a cheeseboard too.

steviewren said...

Oh Bibi, what a wonderful addition to the picnic. This bread tastes like heaven! Let me dip a piece in this bowl of broccoli soup.... mmmmm ...perfect!

I'm loving the international flair that Muse Swing's Indian Summer party has taken on. Do you mind if I slip away for a while...I'm dieing to explore Serbia while I'm here!

Janeen said...

Hello, I'm here! Oh my stars, look at all that wonderful bread! I should have worn elastic because I've ate so much today! StevieWren told me they are having a bon fire across the lake, let's go! Great to meet you and have a great day!

A picnic aint a picnic without picnic buns!!! Wow! Thanks for sharing!

Becky said...

This is a fantastic picture! Beautiful composition. Well done. Hmmm...a picnic sounds fabulous. It's getting close to being too cold for that here, so I'll have to act fast, but I'll recommend one final picnic of the year to my hubby. Thanks for the idea!
