For those of you with small children, I don’t need to explain how incredibly blissful that short time is when both (or all) of your children manage to nap at the same time (if you are lucky enough to experience this phenomena).
For those of you who don’t have children, imagine a world where you never drive in the car without listening to whining or getting a goldfish thrown at your head, going to the bathroom with the door shut -alone- is a rare treat and nights usually consist of more than the 2 bodies you originally had in your bed at bedtime, cramping any romantic inclinations you might have had…if you were not too exhausted or annoyed with your spouse to feel so inclined in the first place.
In this world, when there is a moment to be had to yourself, you take it.
Lovely picture I’ve painted, yes?
*note* Having children and staying at home with them is the greatest thing ever….seconded by using those stay-at-home experiences to scare the holy heck out of anyone considering doing the same.
When I have a quiet minute with nothing but the sound of the lawn mower -or an occasional pesky fly buzzing around- I make a cup of coffee and help myself to a handful of Biscoff Cookies.
Biscoff is a European brand of cookie that tastes a bit like gingersnaps, but without the intensity or bite. Almost like a cookie version of a graham cracker, but better. They are crunchy and light and consistently a good idea.
I’m not normally a packaged-cookie type of girl. I find it much more fun and a heck-of-a-lot tastier to make sweet treats myself, but Biscoff Cookies are impossible to replicate. I love the way they taste dipped in a hot cup of coffee. De-lish!
Biscoff also makes a spread that I am dying to try my hand at baking with. Sally, my favorite baking blogger, used it for a recipe which means I’m ultra inspired to grab a jar for my kitchen. Plus, if people in Europe use this as a peanut butter spread -and I am a peanut butteraholic- than I’m sure I will fall instantly in love.
The only downfall of these crunchy little cookies is that they are not easy to come by. I’ve been ordering them from Amazon…because that is how much I love them. I order them on the internet. (I saw a hashtag on Twitter once that said #thisiswhyyourefat. I believe that applies here.)
That’s enough rambling for me for one day. Nap time is coming to an end and I have a new magazine, a full DVR of various Bravo shows, coffee and -of course- Biscoff Cookies calling my name.
