On the Never-Ending Search for Homemade Nutella

Hello people! Blogger tells me there are still some of you here even though I haven't posted in forever and a half.

We did get my boy off to college. He's been there two weeks and we've heard from him more in that time than the previous two years put together.

This is right before he left:

Meanwhile the Head of Demolition started a new year of preschool:


She went with clothes on and a clean face though.

My project lately has been trying to figure out homemade Nutella. Because they served it to the kid at day camp and she loved it. But I'm pretty sure that if you read the ingredients of Nutella, your eyes pop out of your head and you get heart disease and cancer simultaneously.

And that's why people who eat serious amounts of Nutella never read the ingredients list. Hopefully.

I tried this recipe and this recipe. And my problem is, it congeals both ways and turns into more of a butter than a dip. And then the kid claims it's "too sweet", which I think is her way of saying the texture is wrong. So I'm still working on a  good recipe.

Here's a picture of the kid playing a board game. All of these pictures have been on Facebook before, so apologies if you're seeing them twice.


That's about it from around here - happy long weekend everyone!

So...is this Wordless Wednesday? Dd you not read the rules?? hahahahaha
It's strangely comforting to check in and see you here because Facebook is to blogging what twitter is to facebook. The BA would probably howl me down for that statement and I have to admit it is probably made with a limited evidence base. Still, the hominess of blogging cannot be contested. Visiting you here is like coming home.
Can't get over how mature No1 Son looks. Hope he's doing ok at college. You will know it's ok when he stops calling :-D
