Back To School Throwback Lunches: Peanut Butter & Marshmallow Cream
Monday I shared the story behind the good old classic cream cheese & olive sandwich. We toned it down for Tuesday and did the more popular peanut butter & banana sandwich. Wednesday was mom's kick-butt tuna fish sandwich. Thursday I highlighted one of my all time favorites, the pimento cheese sandwich.
For the last in this series, I present the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich. In some circles it is called the fluffernutter!
Yes, smooth creamy peanut butter covered in a marshmallowy concoction of sugar and corn syrup — sure to give you that mid day "bump" you need to make it through Friday. Mom knew exactly what she was doing!
Stepping away from the Little Debbie family, we head over to the Hostess family for the Friday cupcake.
Toss in some grapes and you have the perfect Friday lunch.
I really enjoyed this series and allowing my mouth to walk down memory lane. Mary was also excited to have sweets in the house which is a rare occurrence.
I would like to take this moment and thank my mom who got up without fail and packed 3 lunches a day for myself, my little brother and dad. She was creative and mixed it up just about everyday. Lunch was like a grateful dead concert — you never saw the same thing twice in a row.
E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
P.S. If anyone wants a slightly used jar of Marshmallow Fluff please let me know, I would be happy to send it to you.
