The Husband Cooks Wednesday

by Cate on March 16, 2006

cue the deep voice … We interrupt this food post to bring you a Public Service Accouncement. Nothing says Spring like a pair of cute pink shoes. Aren’t they the cutest? Made a stop at DSW yesterday at lunchtime and brought these puppies home. They’re made by Sketchers and have a nice grooved sneaker-type bottom and are so comfy – can’t wait to break them in!

OK, onto why you came here … the food!

The Husband did his thing tonight, serving up a steak with homemade french fries. He’s been working on perfecting the french fries and he’s pretty much there, crispy on the outside and mooshy on the inside, lightly salted, mmmmm.

The meal was completed with a plate of sliced fresh avocado with a sprinkling of salt. I love avocado just plain like this, smooth, creamy and buttery, yum. And then lastly, I came home to this… not bad, eh? The Husband is thinking pink too. ;)

The mailman delivered an awesome package today. Check out the goodies:

How did BzzAgent get into my head like that? I heart Nutella and am all too happy to spread its bzz! If you haven’t heard of BzzAgent before, you might want to go take a gander. I first had Nutella when we lived in Italy for a few years while I was growing up. A creamy, chocolatey, hazelnut spread, you can eat it a variety of ways. My personal favorite happens to be … Take spoon, dip in jar, eat, repeat. Along with the full size jar and cute little sample sizes, there were also coupons which I will surely put to use and a booklet filled with fun ways to eat Nutella and little facts about it. Did you know that there are over 50 hazelnuts blended with cocoa and skim milk in every jar? In European households, moms have been serving it as a breakfast or snack with croissants since it came out in the early 60s. It didn’t appear in the US until 1983, but caught on like wildfire and is still growing strong with a legion of devotees. If you haven’t tried it, time’s awastin’.

OK folks, all for tonight. Tune in tomorrow to see what hits the table with this week’s segment of Rediscovering My Library and see who gets the nod for New (to Me) Blogger on the Block Thursday. Until then…

A year ago today… it was all about the New York Times and Indian snack food.

The shoes are adorable!

And the hubby made quite the dinner. Those fries look delicious!

Cute shoes! But the Nutella and french fries is making me swoon. In fact, thinking about dipping salty, hot french fries in Nutella is making me swoon even more!


Cate March 16, 2006 at 6:43 am

Mrs. Canada – you may be onto something. ;)

Alicat – me too. It’s something I’m not going to tire of in awhile.

Ivonne – yup, we caught ourselves a good one. ;)

yeah the fries look heavenly and I really wish they were in front of me right now. =)~~~~

Also.. BzzAgent looks interesting. Is there any cost to you? And is the Nutella the first campaign you’ve given your opinon on? Sounds like fun =)


Cate March 16, 2006 at 4:19 pm

Lis – completely free, in exchange for you spreading the bzz. Two weeks ago, we got a box of Hersheys Take 5 Bars – yummy stuff. :)

Thanks for visiting, Catesa!

Thanks, Rose!

Christina – Nutella in this house is dangerous. Think of all the deliciously sweet paninis I can make!

Culinarily Obsessed – I do love BzzAgent! We definitely made a good decision. ;)
