I have been so busy since last week, I’ve barely had time to cook! This past weekend one of my favorite people and my Maid of Honor came to visit. We had a great time looking at flowers, eating yummy sandwiches, and tasting wine. Particularly a chambourcin that goes amazingly with chocolate. With that said, I’m glad that I said I would spotlight some of my favorite products.
The past few weeks I’ve been working on eating better. Instead of dessert, I’ve been trying to eat fruit. Instead of chips, vegetables. Well, it doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes I just need that little bit of sweet. And recently, I’ve rediscovered one of my all time loves in the chocolate world, Nutella. I love Nutella, as most people who’ve tried it have. And if you’ve never tried it but like chocolate and hazelnuts, I strongly recommend you go out and find a jar.
I used to eat it on toast. Or make a sandwich with Nutella and peanut butter. I also liked to put it on bananas, apples, and strawberries. Basically, I could make a meal out of putting Nutella on various foods. However, recently, I have found something that is easy to dip, Honey Wheat Pretzels. Although, this was not my discovery. A good friend of mine suggested it, and I’ve gone a little nuts. I find that the Rold Gold Braids are my favorite.
Yum yum yum. I find that I can eat just a couple of these (without having to get any knife dirty or eating a huge amount) and my sweet craving is satisfied. It may not be the world’s healthiest snack, but heck, it’s better than those really bad days where I dive head first into the jar armed only with a spoon. I’m actually seriously considering baking a cake and using Nutella as the frosting. Would that be considered overboard?
How do you eat your Nutella? Anything creative that you do with it? I’m always looking for new ideas for one of my favorite spreads.
