A New Best Friend

31 Aug

I made a new best friend tonight.

I’d like to introduce you; readers, meet Nutella.


Ok, ok, most of you have already met before. I read about Julie enjoying Nutella throughout Europe. I was intrigued by Gabriela’s Nutella fudge. But I had yet to try the stuff myself.

You see, I’m cheap. And this stuff usually runs about $4/$5+ where I live. So when I saw it on sale tonight for $2.99, I scooped it up & now I’ll never look back!

Questions #1: Have you ever tried Nutella? What’s your favorite way to enjoy it?


Moving on… I’ve got a super simple dinner recipe to share with you all tonight.

This one comes compliments of another Campbell’s Kitchen e-mail (seriously, sign up for these!).

You can find the original recipe for cheeseburger pasta here!

All you need is: lean ground beef, cheddar cheese soup, tomato soup, & pasta – that’s it!

First, cook up the ground beef. Then add the two soups & the uncooked pasta.

It’s not the prettiest thing to look at, but it was tasty!

I enjoyed my portion topped with some parmesan cheese & alongside of a salad!

And there were even leftovers for lunch the next day! Yes.

What’s your favorite type of pasta? I love a good lobster ravioli!

    Nutella on my finger…. or a banana, or a flat bread with banana! 🙂
    Leftovers make the world a better place!

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Nutella is a life changer!

      That sounds really good! I can’t wait to slather it on every food I eat for the next few days! 😉

    Firstly, I love that you had never tried Nutella because of the cost! I think you might be a frugal frog, like myself! I TOTALLY do that! However, we have a grocery store that always has Nutella on sale!

    Secondly, I tagged you as a Blissful blogger! 🙂

      I hate spending money if it’s something I don’t really need. I always would pick it up at the store & think well no I don’t really need this; but I couldn’t resist $2.99.

    I haven’t had nutella in like a year and a half and I’m going through withdrawal! I love nutella and banana sandwiches. The banana makes it healthy.. right…? 🙂
