Last week I wrote about having this party and well, now it’s time to tell you about it.
First I’ll tell you that my kids were a little upset that I had this during the day when they were at school. But, they certainly got to enjoy the spoils. Some tasty treats were in this house that day. And second, I look horrid! I really wanted to fix myself up because I knew this would be a blog post but I just ran out of time so the hair goes up and I look all fat and bald. Well, I’m not bald…. The other part I’m working on. Really! Oh well… those who love me don’t care and those who don’t love me, don’t matter.
I think I counted 12 in all that came and enjoyed Nutella with me. It was a come and go party so not everyone was here at the same time. It was a diverse group. Some ladies I met at church, some are friends/spouses of Tommy’s coworkers, some are friends I’ve just met here, some from the complex I live in, some are my blogger friends and some are friends that I’ve met through my blogger friends. Confused? Well, here they are.

And my favorite of the day, Levi.No, this was not staged. Jennifer’s boys are so cute! I missed getting a shot of Jessie’s little boy, Gage. He’s a cutie pie too. I’m sure they didn’t nap that afternoon. Too much Nutella!
We had an assortment of cookies with Nutella. Apples, bananas and strawberries with Nutella. Pretzels with Nutella. Bread with Nutella. Celery sticks with cream cheese and Nutella. Spoonfuls of Nutella. Nutella & coffee smoothies. And my two favorites were the Nutella Brownies and Nutella Whipped Pie. I was lazy and used a store bought graham cracker crust for the pie. I found these recipes on the Nutella Day website. There are millions more to choose from but you HAVE to make the brownies and the pie.
Nutella is super yummy but I’ve had enough for a little while. Plus, I really need to shed some pounds and I’m fairly certain it is not an approved diet food.
Happy World Nutella Day and you can guarantee that my calendar is already marked for next year. February 5, 2011. Is yours?
