headed north to stitches west

Tomorrow morning the Hedster and I are taking off to the Bay Area. We’ll goof around tomorrow then hit Stitches West on Friday. If you can recognize us among all the other short, bespectacled Asians, say hello!
More on the properties of Marshmallow Fluff. Some of you may be familiar with Marshmallow Creme. Well, as you might guess, Fluff is fluffier! It’s like a fluffy cloud of sugary goodness. I like to eat it by the spoonful or combine it with peanut butter. I had heard about Fluff from my friend Jon, so when we vacationed back east this past summer, I picked up a few jars. I am sold! See how fluffy it is?

Okay, gotta go pack now. I’ll be back Friday night, and with any luck I’ll have lots of photos of yarn and food to post on Saturday!

    I am so envious that you are going to Stitches! Wish I could be there, (I attended one year when it was in Monterey) but wasn’t able to swing it this year. Have fun and knit your heart out!
    Fluff and PB? Sounds really, really sweet…and sticky!

  4. Shannon says:

    If you’re feeling adventurous, put some chocolate chips in with the fluff and peanut butter. It was one of my favorite sandwiches as a kid.

    It’s funny to hear that you just recently found out about fluff. We had no $$ when I was young and we’d have peanut butter & fluff sandwiches almost every day for lunch. As you can guess, I can no longer stand the stuff – but it is certainly fun to play with!
    Have fun at stiches!

    I grew up with Fluff on the east coast, and since I don’t like it much (except for the fudge recipe on the container) I never even looked for it out here in the West. Consequently I didn’t even know that it’s not available here–I guess I’d seen the Creme in stores and assumed it was the same, because, really, how many different jarred marshmallow products can there be?

    Being a life long east-coaster, I guess I just assumed that Fluff was nationwide — but yeah..do try the ol’ Fluffernutter sandwich…mmmm… and with the chocolate chips sounds pretty good too!
    I’ve seen jars of Fluffernutter too — like those jars of PB & J swirled up together so you just scoop it out and slap it on some bread. I would be happy to see if they’re still around on my next grocery run for ya. :-)

    My kids like peanut butter, banana and marshmallow fluff sandwiches. Gag! Eat by the spoonful? Whoa~ talk about a sugar high.
    Have fun at stitches west.

    Anyone who grew up in Maine probably remembers Whoopie Pies (a uniquely New England “thing”, I think)…individual chocolate-cakey sandwiches with a Fluff-based filling. Yum!! I have the recipe if anyone’s interested.

  11. Gabrielle says:

    Fluffernutters rule! I grew up on the East Coast and I loved those as a kid (and still do). My husband thought I was an absolute freak until I made him try one and now he loves them too!

  12. Amy says:

    Fluff looks delish! Have a great time at Stitches West (trying not to be too envious :-)

  13. Martha says:

    The primo way to have Fluff is: A heaping (HEAPING!!)spoonful of it in a cup of hot chocolate. Even better when sipped and spooned between rows of knitting.

  14. claudia says:

    You mail ordered Fluff!?! You *so* rock.

  15. Patty says:

    I’d like that whoopie Pie recipe, Jan….if yourstill willing to share.
    Thanks
