We are starting another edition with BM#55 for August! Half year just flew and I guess for some of us, atleast BM group, time flies, just discussing the themes and how we go about cooking and managing the months.
Due to unexpected events, I had to miss the last week of July and it almost feels like I haven't sat to write at all. I am starting the first week with a theme focussing on Nutella. I have made Homemade Nutella
and it was such a hit. However getting the hazelnut here is quite an expensive affair and going all that hassle makes one think you can just get a bottle off the shelf.
Nutella is always stocked, one if not more all the time. This time though I got another extra just for these dishes and Konda was complaining that I used up their regular bottle as well.
I opted for simpler dishes, knowing the more complex dishes only end up taking more time than I can afford. So for the day 1, a simple, yet delicious quick Eggless Crepe topped with Nutella and Banana. I know you must be thinking I simply spread on it and pack this off as Nutella dishes!
I wanted to make this after remembering my experience of eating a delicious one Nutella Banana Crepe
, at SFO, during my visit many years ago. It was such a nostalgic moment, reading and reliving those days.
Now you can enjoy this as well!
