Husbands, balloons, nutella and donuts. That’s what Wednesday night looked like around here. Birthdays are much more fun as an all week affair, and to make up for the little snafoo we had on Monday evening, I put together a little after hours party for Ben with one of our favorite treats.
In honor of turning 27 – just a few things you may not know about Benjamin:
1. I’m the only one that calls him Benjamin. In college, all his roommates called him Benny.
2. He hates celery. Regardless, he’s the least picky eater I know.
3. His favorite baby activity is bathtime. His least is diaper changes.
4. He’s a skater. I never thought I’d date, love, or marry a skater. It is what it is.
I’m not a huge fan of store bought baked goods … with the exception of donuts (and the occasional bakery cupcake). So, I’m not sure why I haven’t thought of donuts as dessert before (especially when I don’t have time to whip something up in the kitchen).
^Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop partnered up with Nutella for a few new products (guys, the nutella stuffed pastries are AMAZING). Me and nutella have a long wonderful history so these little beauties are my favorite. Nutella and crushed hazelnuts. The fact that we have a Tim Hortons 45 seconds down the road is dangerous (we’ve had these four times in the past six weeks).
^so there’s this place in Cincinnati that makes a grilled cheese donut ( I blogged about it here but its essentially a grilled glazed donut, cut in half and filled with mascarpone, chocolate, and strawberries) – which made me want to try donut sundaes. We didn’t get around to it last night …but I’m adding it to my summer bucket list.
