So, I know I've been MIA lately, and if you follow me on twitter you probably already know why...I GOT A JOB =)
Okay, it has nothing to do with what i went to school for (Genetics) and its only a seasonal job, but I am so thankful to have some sort of an income. It's a retail job, my first one, and I had no idea how physically demanding it was. I stand on my feet all day, my back aches and my poor toes feel so sore by the end of the day. I have a new found appreciation for those who work in retail. And for those of you who haven't, let me tell you, it takes a lot more work than you think and I urge you to be patient and show your cashiers some respect!
I don't plan to work in retail forever, I hope to find a job in a field related to my degree, but right now, with the economy the way it is, it might be a while before that happens.
For those of you in similiar situations, recent grads looking for a career, people who have lost their jobs and looking for a way to make ends meet, Keep your heads up! I know times are hard right now, but don't give up! My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you!
Well, just wanted to give you guys a quick update as to why I haven't been around lately. Thanks so much for understanding =)
If you've ever had a Ferrero Rocher, Nutella is the same creamy center in those addictive little balls of deliciousness! I grew up on Ferrero Rocher, my parents would buy me those big boxes from Costco and I could eat the whole thing on my own. But it wasn't until my Freshman year of College that I actually had my first taste of Nutella from the jar =) thanks to my lovely dorm mates!
You can eat Nutella on basically ANYTHING and EVRYTHING (my friend actually dipped her hot cheetos in it, LOL). Some faves are animal crackers, graham crackers, pretzels, fruit, Crepes (Strawberry Nutella Crepes are to die for, banana isn't bad either), and Nutella Wontons are easy to make but scrumptious! Lately, for a more healthy approach, I've been eating it spread over whole wheat bread...
You're probably thinking, "eww, chocoalte on bread?" haha, I thought the same thing when I first heard it myself, but its actually very tasty! Nutella is made mostly of hazelnuts, some skim milk and a hint of cocoa. It was originally created during World War II when the chocolate supply was low, adding hazelnuts to what little cocoa was available extended the chocolate supply. Nutella has hung around even after the War because, let's face it, its Yummy!
So whether you eat it drizzled over cake for a simple dessert or eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon (or a finger) Nutella is definitely a staple in many kitchens around the world!
