Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome. Recipes are enjoyed, but you can write about swallowing a bug on a recent bike ride or the Nutella commercial you just saw on TV.In other words, the Food on Fridays parameters are not at all narrow. I think of it as a virtual pitch-in where everyone brings something to share; even if the content of one item is unrelated to the rest, we sample it all anyway and have a great time.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or the new smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post and join us through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Food on Fridays with Ann
I couldn’t believe my eyes—the other day I saw a Nutella commercial on American television! It’s a pretty boring commercial, but still.
In the USA!
The mom in the commercial tries to make it sound sort of healthy:
“As a mom, I’m a great believer in Nutella, a delicious hazelnut spread that I can use to get my kids to eat healthy foods. I spread a little on all kinds of healthy things, like multi-grain toast. Every jar has wholesome, quality ingredients, like hazelnuts, skim milk, and a hint of delicious cocoa. And Nutella has no artificial colors or preservatives. It’s quick. It’s easy. And at breakfast, I can’t use all the help I can get.”
Her narration made me laugh. They’re trying awfully hard to make it sound good for you.
We’ve loved Nutella for years. My husband grew up in Belgium familiar with Nutella. I married into it. From our honeymoon on, I sought out Nutella and enjoyed it in and on many things.
We like Nutella in crepes.
We like Nutella on French bread.
We like Nutella as a dip for apples or bananas.
We like Nutella on “all kinds of healthy things, like multi-grain toast,” like the Nutella mom says on the commercial.
We like Nutella with just about anything.
And believe it or not, in spite of what this list suggests, we eat Nutella in moderation. A little goes a long way.
I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I will soon: Nutella pound cake.
