National Fluffernutter Day

Sooo many wonderful textures and flavors go with peanut butter. In making sandwiches, we may opt for a straight-up toasted peanut butter sandwich (a personal favorite). Or we may choose to slather one slice of bread with a favorite jelly or jam. Or simply top the peanut butter with a layer of sliced bananas and a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or brown sugar. A chocolate spread and a sprinkle of chopped nuts work well, too. But this is National Fluffernutter Day, so marshmallows rule the options.

Throughout elementary school, I recall the traditional fluffernutter being my daily lunch sandwich. Yup, five times a week. After a few years, I admit that I skipped fluffernutters for YEARS! On October 8th, however, if peanut butter is going on the sandwich, marshmallow fluff must adorn the other slice before closing and consuming that sandwich.
