Fat Intake is Always Good For You

I accidentally poured in a little too much heavy cream in my coffee just now. It made my eyes go a little wide when I saw it. Oh well. I only made enough coffee for one cup and that's all I got, baby. Tastes nice.

I am officially addicted to Nutella. Do you know what that stuff is? Let's see if I can get a picture up here. No, I can't or just something won't work and I don't have time to use my brain and figure it out. Good grief, I love Nutella. Why has no one told me of this insanely delightful slop of chocolate goo? To all of you who have left me in my ignorance, I am angry at you.

"I LOVE Nutella!" I shouted to my daughter while we were grilling chicken outside.

"I know mom! It is wicked!"

"No, it is beyond wicked. I'd eat it on bread. I'd eat it on beef. Heck, I'd eat it on chicken."

"Yes, it is beyond wicked---it is so vile and evil!" she shouted.

"Absolutely," I said, "I think Nutella is going to make me Nufatta."

She laughed and shook her head. "You're crazy, Mom."

My greatest friend told me last night that I could buy Nutella at Costco. Can you imagine? Two mega jars in one shrink-wrapped pack? When I learned this I gasped because I just had returned from Costco and must have skipped that aisle.

Right now I am addicted to Pocky, a chocolate covered biscuit-cookie that you can buy at World Market (or Costplus). They are sooooo good. I understand the obsession ; )

When my wife tells me she loves something that much I say:
Well why don't you marry it then?

Would you eat it on a train?
Would you eat in it the rain?

Yes, you'd eat it, yummy tummy
Yes, do eat it, it's brown and runny.

You would eat it while your blogging.
You would eat it while your jogging.

We all could eat it, yes we could.
Now to Costco, yes you should.

Hey, I just made that up.

Nutella must have been mostly a European thing because we had it all the time when I was a kid living in Germany, and no one had ever heard of it here. It was a blast from the past the first time I saw it in a grocery store over here. Ah, I love Google. I just learned that it was frist imported from Italy into the U.S. in 1983. I had it WAY before then. I feel so special now.

Wouldn't it be extra delicious on pound cake or cheesecake or banana bread?

Bee--as I was writing about that I thought, some clever writer-reader will play on Dr. Suess. I know it.

And there you have it. :)

Groovy--Yep, you knew it. It WOULD be GREAT on banana bread. Forgot about that. Guess what I'm making later...

I've seen nutella on the shelf and wondered to myself.."what sort of person would want to put that on stuff and eat it"

Are you sure it's good? Cause I'm trusting you here, I might take the plunge...and if I get hooked it will benefit everyone because I will advocate for Costco to carry it in 50 gallon drums
