#SoCS November 17/18 – Roll/Role

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “roll/role.” Use one, use both, it’s entirely up to you. Enjoy!

I love a bread roll.

A beautiful crusty fresh baked roll is the best, slathered with butter and jam… mmmmm!

Gong back to general bread rolls though…

You might not call it a roll. Here in the UK there are so many different names:

  • Barm
  • Bap
  • Roll
  • Cob

Those are the ones I know, anyway, but check this infographic out…

Fascinating, isn’t it? And rather crazy!

Shows the important role bread plays in our life here!

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!

    Sixteen different names from one small country is pretty amazing. I think it’s a testament to bread. Well done, Ritu!

    Buns. We call rolls cut in half buns. It IS kinda funny, now that I consider it!

    Lol, I didn’t realize there were so many ways to say, “pass the bread.” 🙂

    This reference is going to make the British Baking Show (you know, the one with Paul and Mary or Prue?) easier to understand! Very cool post.

    I remember visiting my friend in Ipswich and him taking me for an “egg and bacon bap” one morning. It was delicious and I liked the sound of it.
