Ahhh … it is here. The day we’ve waited for … longed for … dreamed about.
It is World Nutella Day 2010, so let me be one of the first people to say “Auguri,” and welcome you to the party.
Those of you who know me well, know I’m an avid party planner. I don’t wait until the last minute and I like to make sure all of my i’s are crossed and t’s are dotted.
Or something like that.
In fact, I started planning for Nutella Day back in December, when I created American-inspired dessert trays for my Italian friends and family. There were Rice Krispie trees. There were sugar cookie santas. And there were Nutella-filled powder cookies.
And they were good.
Unfortunately, you are just gonna have to take my word for it, because yesterday, when this highly organized, slightly anal-retentive planner went to write this post, she (who also talks about herself in third person when she’s made a mistake) realized all of the pictures-every. single. one of them-was out of focus.
So I did what any hard-headed, Nutella-lovin’ girl would do … I cried to my husband.
And he came through.
For World Nutella Day 2010, I present you with my husband’s very own …
