Our 29th “Follow them Friday” features Michelle of Very Hungry Explorer blogging in English.
When did you start blogging?
I wrote my first post back in 2009, but my blog was VERY different back then! I don’t have that post published anymore.
How did you decide on the name of your blog?
It took three different names before I settled on one that I really loved – Very Hungry Explorer. I was just back from visiting friends whose little boy has the Very Hungry Caterpillar read to him every night, I had a couple of glasses of wine and BOOM – Very Hungry Explorer was born
Do you prefer eating in or eating out?
Since I went veggie last year, I have to say I prefer eating in now. I’ve been finding it quite hard to find ‘normal’ restaurants (so that my hubby and friends can still enjoy meat) that have good vegetarian options in Brussels.
What is your favourite comfort food?
This is a straight up tie between macaroni cheese and cheesy chips with gravy and chocolate.
How do you like your eggs in the morning?
Eggs are my absolute favourite breakfast food, so I’m pretty happy no matter how they arrive, but boiled eggs with buttered soldiers is the winner.
What is your earliest food memory?
My Mum made a HUGE castle cake for my birthday when I was 6 or 7 – I can still picture it now – four huge turrets and blue jelly for the moat – brilliant.
What are the three things you always have in your freezer?
Ice-cubes, chocolate ice-cream and peas
How do you spend your time when you’re not blogging?
I’ve just qualified as an English teacher, so I think that is going to keep me rather busy, other than that; cooking, reading, photography and of course Brussels Food Friends.
