"Does anyone else here in London have dough?"

For some odd reason, the sight of bread is always comforting to me. Plus, I think the dominant midtones in this photo add to that feel.

My housemate (Mitbewohner?) baked a loaf of bread Saturday night and that was part of breakfast, lunch and dinner yesterday! I love bread...

I agree with Kobico, bread is so comforting, I've been working my way through a loaf I bought at our local food cooperative, so substantial. Great match-up, Martina.

But surely all English bread is square and comes in slices!

kobico, yes, Mitbewohner :-). I bake bread too, since I do it with sourdough it takes about a week's preparation and an appointment-free Sunday for kneading, letting the dough rise for some hours and finally baking. So it's only once a month, ;-).
Paula, yes, it is strange that we think of bread as comforting, isn't it? For me it is childhood memories, when every small village had its bakery and you could smell the fresh bread in the street.
AB, that's why for every family visit to England we have a loaf of rye bread in our suitcase, ;-). But as a child I really loved English white bread with peanut butter - peanut butter was unknown in Germany then.

I still love peanut butter!

kobico, me too: whitebread with peanutbutter and sambal oelek!!
