Childhood is calling....


When I was little, we lived in Germany for 3 wonderful years. I have a lot of really GOOD memories from while living there.
A couple years ago, my husband said he had discovered a new treat.
When he pulled out a jar of "Nutella" I couldn't help but laugh.
I ate that stuff the entire time we lived overseas. When we moved back to the States in the late 60's, they didn't have it available.........so I moved on to PBJs....and then simply forgot about it.

The reason Dean wanted to try it is because Giada has a cookbook with a recipe or 2 using it...BTW, her cookbook rocks....

I make these sandwiches for the kids a few times each week and Dean eats them as a midnight snack on a regular basis.

Today, I decided to make myself one of these yummy treats disguised as a sandwich...after all, peanut butter IS a protein. The Nutella and marshmallow cream make it naughty........oh, and a you gotta have a huge glass of milk.

Since I am no food stylist this picture will have to suffice. It was prettier this way than after I had squished the 2 pieces of bread together!

Nutella is the greatest thing in the universe!!!! I just spread in on a slice of bread and don't even bother with the rest of the sandwich! I was so excited when I found it in the store here a few years ago.

Yum, we love Giada my daughter went a few weeks ago with her girlfriend to get a autographed copy of her book for me and some of her new food product line. My dd loves nutella we keep it stocked at all times.

Hmm, nutella! Yummy - a chilhood, teen, heck - anytime staple. Here in Oz it is readily available. My favourite serving method is on a spoon!. Might need to pop off to the shops...
