Stress eating isn’t good for you. That said, I’ve been known to stress eat from time-to-time. Cheetos. Chocolate. But when things are ridiculously stressful, it’s time to quit messing around and get serious. That’s when I let myself indulge in a stroopwafel.
For anyone not familiar with the Dutch treats, they are very thin wafel cookies fused together with a caramel syrup. They go great with an afternoon coffee and bring back fond childhood memories of the years I spent living in Maastricht. In fact the only comfort food better than a stroopwafel is frites mit mayonnaise (Dutch french fries with mayonnaise, but not mayonnaise like you’re thinking of if you live in the US).
What do you think? Which stroopwafel photo do you prefer?
And as an added bonus, I’ve also posted a photo of frites mit mayonnaise from my trip to The Netherlands last fall.
Stroopwafel Photo #2. I hope things are less stressful at work next week, because I’m completely out of stroopwafels! Yes, I can buy them here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA, but they never taste as fresh as the ones that arrive via Dutch colleagues who hand carry them over on the plane.
