Current Obsessions

The hub's cousin and wife went to Belgium earlier this month and brought us home a little treat in a bottle.

Speculoos. Oh my grief, it's SO good. It's so good I'm surprised it's not a controlled substance. It basically is a spread made from a cookie, looks very much like peanut butter, and although you might think it's an odd ingredient for a spread, it's simply amazing.

The toaster has no idea what's going on because it hasn't had this much use in a long, long time. We're trying to be as sparing with it as possible, but if you've tasted this yumminess, you'll understand our constant need for toast. We love it so much I might name our firstborn Speculoos. Weeeell, maybe not.

I have found something similar being sold online within the States, but it's kind of pricey for a spread for toast. And it'd probably lead to a spread in my waistline, thighs and rear end.

And you know what else is good in this weather? Iced coffee. Iced coffee with coffee ice cubes. Yeah, 'cause that's how I roll.

OMG! I would just love that. When I saw the image I thought it was yukkkky PB.
I love speculoos; I used to be a nanny in Brussels, Belguim and we used to eat those with the best hot chocolate (Belguim=Chocolate).
Aah, those were the days..........
