A New England Delicacy

I finally tried the New England delicacy known as fluffernutter. I’m not sure why it took me 18 years to try it since marshmallow is in my top 5 foods list. But the past is the past. Marshmallow Fluff was created in Somerville, MA, hence the regionalism.

I haven’t bought white bread in years, so it was kind of a thrill to buy some Wonder Italian bread. I usually eat chunky peanut butter, but that didn’t seem like the right thing to use in this situation, so I bought creamy peanut butter. And then I bought THE FLUFF.








I wasn’t sure what the consistency would be like. Well, it’s like a gooey paste. I also wasn’t sure of the proportions…how much fluff to put on the bread. On my first attempt, I did not use enough Fluff.

The container is huge so I will have many more chances to perfect the proportions! The verdict is = delicious. A salty-sweet combination is always a winner, isn’t it? I’ve read that there are many variations of this delicacy; have you tried any?



A New Ring

Every year, I like to find a new way to “adorn” myself. I’ve changed my hair color a few times and I’ve tried henna. I got a cartilage piercing (R.I.P. [it wouldn’t take]). I tried a magnetic nose ring (didn’t look good at all).

This year, I bought some knuckle rings aka midi rings. I perused the offerings on Etsy, all the while saying to myself, “How will these rings stay on my fingers?” I had no idea which actual ring size would work, so I opted to buy a few cheap adjustable ones.







I like them, but I find that they move around a lot. If I press the ring too tightly around my finger, my finger starts to look like a sausage. Not flattering. I’ll try a non-adjustable one next to see if it works better. Rings are my favorite type of jewelry, so I plan to explore these rings further. Anyone have knuckle ring recommendations?
