Nutella & Peanut Butter Palmiers for Me and You

23 May

Do you fancy something sweet? Then do you crave for something salty? Sweet again? Salty?

That is the kind of craving I go through certain days of the week.  For starters, I begin with something  like an apple or pear and then reach for some salted peanuts. Then I have a handful of raisins and then some salad with good drizzle of tangy dressing and so on.  This irritates my hubby no end. He would beg and plead to me to have a proper meal so that I don’t go yo-yo-ing on my diet like that.  Regardless, I carry on.

Peanut Butter for my better half and Nutella for me

My hubby on the other hand, is very disciplined about his food habits. He eats a set portion of food every day and at a set time. He prefers eating home cooked meals over having to eat out. He is not a fan of fried stuff or anything that is synthetic tasting or remotely snack-able.

He is a night person and I, the early morning sort.

He has a fantastic sense of direction and I find it difficult to find my way around the locality wherein I have lived for years.

He is a skeptic and I am a believer.

He adapts and I resist.

He is water and I am earth.

I love nutella and he peanut butter.

I hate peanut butter and he hates nutella.

That is why we are made for each other.

That is why I made these Nutella and Peanut butter Palmiers

    Nutella for me and for all of us! I make similar swirls and really can’t have enough of them. Really nice idea to make half and half! How so appropriate:)

    I am way more like you, especially with the raisins…they are a problem for me!

    These look amazing. And the picture of you and hubby? Too cute.

    So, since you hate peanut butter, and he hates nutella, who ate this? Mimi? :) :)

    I loved the way you wrote this post. Very much the way I like to write too. Short jabs in each sentences. And a killer punch of a sentence to end it all. Naice!!! :) :)

    It’s all about complimenting each other. I love to cook and kinda like to clean, Glenn enjoys neither. Glenn is great at fixing and making things, I don’t have a crafty bone in my body. And yup, he can get us somewhere with his eyes closed while I can barely make it there with a map, gps and directions.

    Love the swirls. Personally like peanut butter only in a satay sauce.

    I can eat nutella just on a spoon! Yummy match :) My 2 favourite nuts. I made something similar the other day but with a raspberry coulis.
