Try Eating It: Fluffernutter Sandwich

Every once in a while, I will take a look at the National and International days to see what is being celebrated / observed / remembered. Each day, and month, has several officially recognized days and some of them just seem so odd that I either laugh or scratch my head and wonder why. October 8th is recognized as National Fluffernutter Day.  A simple enough food item, but it’s one I’ve never had. Now, it’s just bread, peanut butter, and marshmallow fluff. I have always loved peanut butter, but haven’t been all that fond of marshmallow.

Being on this “let’s try new things” attitude, I figured I’d give it a try.  Made it as a snack one afternoon, and it tasted okay. I didn’t have a “oh my, this is soooo yummy!!!” moment. At least now I can say I have given it a taste. Need to figure out what to do with the rest of the marshmallow fluff.

Have you had fluffernutter sandwiches?

Make Your Own Lunch

Not really sure why this is a “must do before you die” item listed in the book. Maybe because we’ve gotten to the point where one can easily never make their own lunches. It’s either made for the person (like when we are kids and our parents made them) or fast food, store bought pre-made stuff, or going to places like subway.

During the weekday, I am able to come home at lunchtime and make something to eat and relax. Every once in a while, I’ve made a salad the night before. Typically I’ll have a wheat wrap, a slice of cheese, and two slices of turkey. No mayo and often no mustard (because I am lazy and don’t want to add the extra bit of effort) So, while it’s a bit dry, I’m fine with it.

And Bon Appetite! Mission accomplished for this book item!
