A weekend of Nutella
I don't know about you but I grew up on Nutella. It was the favorite topping when The Father would make crepes. It was great when I would watch TV. I would just sit on the couch with a bunch of bananas and a jar of nutella. The combination was genius (yes, I know I'm not the first person that though of this). I would convince myself that I was eating healthy (you know the banana and hazelnuts :D). In honour of Nutella day (it was last Friday) I decided to eat nutella the whole weekend. On Friday night, I made Mexican mole made with nutella and filled wontons filled with nutella and bananas/strawberries. Lets just say, the wontons didn't last long enough for me to plate it nicely.

The mole recipe was quite easy (I was totally surprised)
2 Teaspoons of Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup of finely chopped onion (I slightly suck and chopping so there were big chunks)
1 Teaspoon of Ground Cumin (After much debate with The Husband, we bought some).
1 Teaspoon of Dried Cilantro (I totally read the recipe wrong and got fresh)
1/8 Tablespoon dried minced Garlic (Again I used fresh and I added more since I love garlic)
1 (10.75 ounce) Can of Condensed Tomato Soup
1 (4 ounces) Can Diced Green Chili Peppers (I used a medium size jalapeno pepper)
1 Tablespoon of Nutella (of course for National Nutella day but it is really unsweetened coco)
In a Saucepan, saute the onion. Once the onions become tender, add the nutella, cumin, cilantro, and garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes than add the tomato soup and chili. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low heat. Let it simmer for 10 minutes and serve.
I made mine more chunky and I actually like it this way :D I also made some pork chops, heated up corn tortilla, and homemade guacamole. I also made Spanish rice. The rice was good but I would have reduce the amount of water.
For the wontons, I adapted the procedure from Giada on food network.
For breakfast I enjoyed some eggs over left over Spanish rice with tortilla, left over mole and guacamole.
* I suck at making eggs, I never get it to the write consistency :(
Finally on Sunday, I decided to make some mamon. Instead I substitute the coffee for a large amount of nutella. It came out well but I wish I had more batter. I made a small batch and it wasn't enough to fill the cupcake tins :(
