food for thought

ever notice how you think better when you’re eating/drinking/ingesting some kind of material with a caloric content? the higher/starchier/sweeter/saltier/fattier the better?

or, maybe it’s just me. but when just caffeine won’t do…

by default, it needs to be able to consumed one handed, so you can still type/write with the other. bonus: eating straight out of the box/bag/jar means no dishes or cutlery to wash afterwards.

nutella or speculoos spread (scraping the bottom of our last jar from paris, sniff), both eaten with a spoon. popcorn. popchips. dry cereal, esp life or honey bunches of oats or mini wheats (only if there’s lots of icing, otherwise you might as well be eating plain shredded wheat). dried mango slices and young coconut chunks. dark chocolate.

(anyone ever notice how brad pitt’s character rusty is always eating in ocean’s eleven? i have no clue how this really relates, except that it’s got brad pitt and food.)

on a more writerly note, fellow writer and lucky 13 blogger liz coley (pretty girl-13) has just posted her interview with young adult author leanna renne hieber (darker still) on our blog. go take a peek!

  1. I can’t write without coffee.

  2. I can–you just wouldn’t want to read it! Thanks for stopping by!

    Coffee and speculoos spread is the perfect writing combination! πŸ˜€

  4. Hi Marieke!

    They need to make a speculoos flavoured coffee. Best of both worlds.

    • Marieke says:

      There’s actually a cafe at Brussels train station that does speculoos lattes. It’s gorgeous but unfortunately also, I’m pretty sure, only available there 😦

      But it has to be Belgium’s best invention yet! It, and speculoos ice cream (<3), should be available all over the world really πŸ™‚

  5. Ohh, the speculoos ice cream! I was kicking myself when I found it even existed–after we got back home to Canada!!

    Thanks for the tip about the cafe. If we over go back, it will be on the itinerary. Perfect with a belgian waffle πŸ™‚

    • Marieke says:

      Oh man, I can imagine! I actually lived in Belgium for a little while during grad school and speculoos ice cream was definitely one of the highlights. I do miss it πŸ˜‰

      Definitely! Noms πŸ˜€

  6. My family all the time say that I am killing my time
    here at web, except I know I am getting know-how everyday by reading such fastidious posts.

  7. Remarkable! Its genuinely awesome paragraph,
    I have got much clear idea concerning from this piece of writing.
