My friend, Lisa and I were on the Steering committee for a Mother’s group for several years. We would take turns bringing in food for the meetings, you know, bagels, juice, a Quiche from the grocery store, whatever. Not Lisa. Her favorite pastime back then was inventing new recipes and entering contests with them. And winning. I know, right?! Of course she needed tasters to test her recipes (Wait… Did I hear that right) so she would bring in delicious egg dishes, yummy cookies and whatnot for. us. to. eat! That scenario would rock on a good day, but back then I had two little howler monkeys and was pregnant with Pumpkin Pie. Home-made food was crucial to my happiness.
Fast-forward several years and her youngest child (Pickles age) has been in school for a couple of years full-time and she has been busy taking all expense paid trips, winning beaucoup cash and prizes, and writing a fabulous food blog called Jersey Girl Cooks which you can visit here.
I keep a link to her blog on my website because it is awesome and today I happened to see something that about made me drop my teeth! First of all, if you know me personally, you know I have a teeny tiny affinity for Nutella. I may be understating this. I even asked Lisa to do a Nutella-related guest blog post for me (She agreed, then the holidays happened. Stay tuned, I have NOT forgotten). Okay, so I see on my own blog that she did a post today on… wait for it… NUTELLA!!! Cinnamon Nutella Latte to be specific. Shouldn’t we really call that a Cinnamon Nutellatte? Or just Cinnutellatte? Whatever, I want one. I may not be a good judge, because I would happily eat my shoe if it had some Nutella on it.
Thanks, Jersey Girl. Right now I am happily sipping a Nutellatte in my imagination and it is heavenly.
