Rye Bread---would you eat it everyday? would you eat it with syrup?

Ok, for the last three weeks, we have been eating Rye bread...for the first two weeks, we didn't even know it!!! No, it didn't taste like wheat bread, but we just didn't recognized the twangy taste...now, we do. It's not too bad though...especially when making french toast with it!! Yep, I made french toast this morning with Rye bread! The kids have not said anything about not liking the bread, but it is a bit hard for them to chew...they have said this, but the taste is not bothering them...they are so accomodating in this new culture! They are doing awesome! They amaze me at their ease in adjusting!

My friend Valentina has said that Americans don't eat a whole lot of variety...I think I agree now that I didn't before. I have not had so much cabbage or mayonnaise is my life!! Not that Russians eat so much of a variety, it's just a different variety from Texas or that good ole--Mexican food!!! We have eaten a few new things...here is a start on the list of new foods: Beet soup, cabbage, goulash, rice porridge for breakfast, buckwheat porridge--not a fav of John's!, lots of different kinds of cookies and chocolate, crab salad, pelmeni(we had this once in Texas--a gift from Valentina--John's favorite---it's like pork/beef ravioli w/o marina)...and the list will go on.

That's funny. I've actually looked for rye bread here and can't seem to find it. Glad to hear the kids are adjusting well...makes it easier on the parents. :)

I love rye bread. I always request it when I get a sub at Schlotzsky's. Yum!

Do they have Tabasco sauce there? An equivalent??I think that's the only way you'd EVER get me ot eat cabbage :-)

I just saw a beet pasta recipe on Rachael Ray yesterday. If they have pasta you could try mixing them together?

Trying new foods is fun! most of the time :)

I'd eat just about anything with syrup or honey. Pumpernickel rye is delicioso too!
