The entire city is conspiring against me. Their mission is to keep me from getting my weekly Nutella fix.
I'm all out. And I can't find it anywhere. Not in the small grocery stores, not the hyper-marts. Nowhere.
What makes it worse is that Nutella-related posts have been popping up all over the blogosphere because it is World Nutella Day on February 5. Just this past hour, I have read about at least 5 luscious Nutella desserts and then drooled over the photos in the Nutella day Flickr pool - all of which have sent my cravings completely over the edge.
I was getting desperate enough to make my own 'Nutella spread' a la David Lebowitz. But that would have required looking for Hazelnut oil, which is just
I so badly wanted to make Nutella ice cream and be part of the 'chocolaty hazelnut wave across the blogosphere' today.
But no Nutella, no ice cream.
And no Nutella, no photos :( [Sorry, Sara & Michelle]
And this is hardly an original recipe contribution to World Nutella Day but this is how my kids and I love our Nutella (when we're not eating it straight from the jar):
Grilled Nutella Sandwich
2 slices whole wheat bread
2 tablespoons Nutella
Lightly spread the outsides of two slices of bread with butter.
Spread Nutella on the inside and sandwich together.
Grill 2 mins per side.
Slice in half and serve warm.
Happy World Nutella Day!
