My 50th Post !!! Celebrate with some Nutella love :)

 

 

 

Don’t we all have those small landmarks that mean most to us, though they might not mean much or anything at all to most people out there?

Like when you managed to shave five pounds from your scale. Hurray!

Your son brought in a report card that has one A+ more than the last one. Yay!

You managed to save for  tickets for that show you have been wanting to see for years. Yes!

You finally got a shoe repair man to save your MOST favorite pair of shoes from getting thrown in the bin. Ecstasy!

The project you have been slogging on glides through to success. Fanta!

Finally found the color blue in a dress you have been looking for ever since your graduation year. Yipee!

You found a crazily awesome alternative for your allergy free cake. Joy!

You found a restroom – just in NICK of time. Relief! ;p

Got to the 50th post in your very young blog. Like me. Yeah!

50th post

 

In fact, I would not have realized it, save for the fact that WP gives a post count for published articles, and I noticed I had 49. I almost fell off the chair. OK, so I exaggerated, but just a little.

To add to this excitement, I am also thrilled to announce another Award, bestowed on me by the phenomenally lovely blogger Stephanie at itsnotjustabouttherecipe.com – The Awesome Blogger Award.

I am on the moon. Thank you, thank you, thank you Stephanie!

What better way to celebrate than something sweet? That too Nutella sweet.

With boys at home, snacking is a big time favorite all around. This one does not take much imagination. Just some frozen bananas, some vanilla ice cream,  crumbly butter biscuits (optional) and Nutella.

    Congrats for your 50th post Minniedi…. This sounds great… But what if someone like me who hardly prefers banana??? Maybe any fruit should do… what say????

    • July 19, 2012 at 4:28 PM

      Nutella is caramel based, and honestly, I don’t like caramel with any other fruit. You could try strawberries…..or….apples? That might work.

  3. July 19, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    Thanks for the award and the recipe! I guess I will just have to celebrate too!

    I’m not a fan of nutella myself, but I so love me some banana splits!

    • July 22, 2012 at 11:22 AM

      You don’t? You are possibly the first person who doesn’t like Nutella. Isn’t it interesting how diverse our taste can be?

  17. July 22, 2012 at 4:12 AM

    Congratulations Minnie! it feels wonderful to hit blogging milestones, doesn’t it? :)
    I love the idea of your cool treat. Bananas and nutella are a winning combination in my book
