World Nutella Day

Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso (and Shelley from At Home in Rome, in spirit) solemnly declare Friday, February 5th “World Nutella Day 2010″ – a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella.  Which we do, just about every day.  We eat it on toast, spread on apple slices and [my personal fav] scooped from the jar with a spoon.  A LARGE spoon.
I couldn’t let World Nutella Day go by without blogging about Nutella, now could I? Such an auspicious occasion calls for a picture.
Now tell me, what do you see in this picture that may strike you as a little odd?  Give up?  Look at those labels – each jar is marked with initials.  At Our House, there are four teenagers who will literally FIGHT over who ate the last dab of Nutella from the jar.  The girls fight with nasty looks and slamming doors; the boys actually roll on the floor, calling each other names and then follow up with threats of destroying personal property.  Our solution?  Each kid gets his or her own jar.* Anyone caught cheating and eating from a sibling’s jar is beaten with a stick, and then forced to clean bathrooms.

*The same method is used for Girl Scout cookies.  Husband and each kid gets their own box of Thin Mints. And no.  I don’t REALLY beat my children with sticks!  They do, however, clean bathrooms. Grudgingly.

  1. In honor of World Nutella day, I will go to my kitchen, take out a spoon, dip in and enjoy! Thanks for stopping by my blog,earlier. Have a great weekend.

  2. I LOVE that each child has his or her OWN JAR. I am going to implement that at my house, except it will be my husband and me who will each have our own jars. I make mine lasssssst, using little bits on toast; he's more the serving spoon type.

  3. Nutella rocks my world. And the new (Belgian?) Pralinutta that has made its way to the shelf next to Nutella at the supermarket is pretty good, too. I was just thinking today that I need a better solution to hiding the Nutella in my dresser. Because if I leave it in the kitchen, it will get eaten by everyone else before I've had a bite. Maybe the one jar per person thing is the answer! Or I should institute an “if you buy with your own money it you can eat it” rule. Thank you, AngelaPea!
