Nutella. Nutella is such a valuable part of my life that I can not find words adequate enough to describe its importance. I will say this–right now we are in the middle of a light kitchen renovation (I say light because we are not changing the footprint of the kitchen, but that’s the only thing we aren’t changing). Nutella is saving my life. Can’t find the syrup to spread over the waffles? Nutella and a plastic knife do the trick. Kids are bored and need something to do? Paper plates and Nutella, and finger painting never sounded so fun. Snack time while I’m in the middle of painting? Stick a bunch of plastic spoons by a jar of Nutella and the next thing you know, three girls are giggly and full. If this kitchen turns out, and I’m really doubtful at times, I will owe it all to the ever yummy Nutella.
