World Nutella Day & Olympics

Nutella Pound Cake
Let's Celebrate World Nutella Day. Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy had declared February 5th World Nutella Day.

On the blogosphere, today, you will find many delicious recipes using Nutella.

I made this Nutella Swirl Pound Cake, in October, after seeing it on my dear 'blog friend' Val of More than Burnt Toast. This recipe was featured in Oct. 2009 of Food & Wine Magazine.

This pound cake is rich in butter and Nutella. Serve yourself a slice with a good coffee or tea.

My daughter is flying, from Ottawa, today. She will be working, as a Journalism, at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler. She is so excited. I am so proud that she was selected, as a Journalism student, to be part of the unique experience. She is only 20 year old and she gets the chance to do what others have been waiting all of the career to do. She will be part of a team called: Franco Médias 2010. They will be writing, interviewing French athletes.

I am going to the Olympics, next week, with my other son Maxime. He will be flying, from Ottawa, next Saturday. We will spend couple days in Vancouver. We could not get tickets to events but we will be part of many festivities. This year, on Granville Island, we have La Place de la Francophonie. This will be a little 'French Quarter' where we can watch, for free, many shows by great French performers, eat food, watch the medals ceremony every night. This will be my first time at the Olympics. I can't wait to go.
