Breakfast in my home can be hectic...My husband usually grabs it to go, as he starts his days early, my son is "too cool" to have his mommy make him breakfast anymore, and likes to try and cook himself. Of course, I don't let him use the stove, but he can make oatmeal and cereal no problem. Then there are the babies...Xander is still too young for solids, but my Sophie is a somewhat picky eater. She likes what she likes, and that's that. Try and give her something new or something she doesn't like, and it will end up being thrown somewhere...Usually at the wall or on the floor. One thing my Sophie-Monster DOES love is chocolate. I would have to say it is her favorite. When my husband eats candy bars, Sophie immediately runs up to him and begs like a dog would. She then takes little pieces of chocolate and walks around happily as they melt all over her hands and cover her face like a little chocolate goatee. Yes, she IS her father's daughter!
So finding things that Lil' Miss Thang likes to eat for breakfast isn't always easy. Of course she'll eat cereal, toast, bacon, and eggs. But sometimes for some odd reason, she resists eating fruit! How weird is that?! So we've had to get creative in getting her to eat various fruits.
So when I got the chance to host a Nutella Mommy Party, I was really excited. I am a long time fan of Nutella, and I thought that maybe, just maybe, this would be the perfect way to get Sophie to eat some different things for breakfast, and do so willingly. If she won't eat a waffle or fruits smothered in a rich, chocolate hazelnut spread, I officially give up!
Not only did she EAT the Nutella, she inhaled it! She ate it on waffles with a sliced banana, she ate it on a strawberry, she ate it on toast....You get the picture. I am fairly certain that when I have guests over this week to sample Nutella, she will probably try and steal everyone's food! A few neighborhood SAHM's and their little ones will be coming over for a Nutella Play Date. The kids can eat and play, and the moms can sample Nutella in many different ways. I plan on making more waffles, as they were a hit in my household, as well as some Nutella Ricotta Crepes and some fresh fruit to dip! And I will also be sending the mamas home with valuable Nutella coupons, samples, recipes, and a Nutella brand travel coffee mug!
Here is some information about Nutella, and some facts you may not have known about this decadent spread:
Next on my list is to make a Nutella cheesecake! I know, not the healthiest choice, but doesn't that sound yummy? I'll let you know in a future post how it turned out!
