marshmallow fluff rules

I was going to give a breakdown of our vacation, since I can’t really think of anything to write about today (I didn’t knit last night because I fell asleep pretty early), but then I decided that would be cruel and dull (I still might do it at some point, though). Instead, I will mention a few random things, such as the wonder of Marshmallow Fluff. I have not yet made a fluffernutter sandwich, though this morning I almost had fluffernutter toast. Fluff is unlike Marshmallow Creme, the closest thing the west coast has to Fluff. Fluff is, well, FLUFFY and whipped. I can’t wait to try it in hot chocolate! And you know, there must be something wrong with Kerstin’s kids, since they don’t seem to fancy it (by the way, I figured out how to use my phone, Kerstin, but you didn’t call! Guess I’ll just have to go back to Boston someday!).
Another thing I must mention is the wonderful Mexican restaurant where we had dinner on the way home from the San Jose airport. It’s in Salinas and is called La Fogata. I had read about it on Chowhound’s California board. It’s owned by a Japanese guy, so it was very surreal ordering Mexican food in Japanese. Great food, though, and friendly service!
One last thing–I had my first real cannoli in Boston. It was from Mike’s Pastry, which is supposed to be the king of all cannoli bakeries. It was very, very tasty, and I encourage anyone who visits Boston to try one.

    Holy cannoli! Glad you figured out your cell! I’ve had a horribly busy summer. The last two weeks, in particular, were a fog. I did think of you, though, and the couple of times I was able to call, you were in Maine. So I just kept sending good vibes your way. But you must come back to Boston and join the Knitsmiths in Brookline some day. Fun group of ladies. 🙂 Ok. Now it’s my turn to head to Maine. Taking the kids to see their grandparents for a couple days. And, yes, the grandparents ONCE tried to feed them Fluff. The kids would have nothing to do with it. Someday they’ll learn. 🙂

    I swear I’ve seen Fluff here in Seattle. I think I may have seem it at Larry’s or QFC…hmmmm, I’ll have to pay more attention the next time I go grocery shopping. If I can get it, I’m sure you can get it.

    Oh, glad you’re back! (I’ve been off line for the past few days.) I made the Angel Cake with Marshmallow Icing from September’s Food & Wine and thought of you the whole time I was mixing. The icing is so marshmallow-y, you’ll die. The cake looked and tasted like one GIANT marshmallow.
