I think J.K. Rowling had a great explanation for one of her go-to snack foods when writing. I found a quote about it HERE.
"“When I write, sophisticated foods are difficult to eat one-handed. Crisps (potato chips) are good,” she said.
Now, I suppose you could just run to the store and pick up some of these:
But, I wonder if Ms. Rowling had something more like this in mind:
Depends on if I feel like cooking or not - but, either yummy option can be eaten with one hand. But, if you'd like to begin one creative venture by dabbling in another (cooking IS an art form!!), here's a recipe for Herbed Potato Crisps:
- 3 large potatoes
- 2 T. oil
- 1/2 t. fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 t. oregano
- 1/2 t. thyme
- 1/2 t. sage
- 1/2 t. rosemary
- celery and garlic salt to taste
What you do:
*Preheat oven to high temp. Clean and cut unpeeled potatoes into thin slices. Place on well-oiled cookie sheets. Brush all slices well with oil and mixed herbs. Bake for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are well-browned and crisp. Sprinkle with combined salts (if desired) and serve. OR eat one-handed as you write... :)
Who knows...? The next time you're hunkered down writing, pop of few chips/potato crisps in your mouth. What you write as you eat just might be the next world-wide sensation to hit print! (Never hurts to try....right?)
What's your favorite writing snack?
