Strawberry Fluffernutter

Greetings, all! Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti Day in New England, which is also the home of the fluffernutter. I happened to notice at the local Shaw's where I shopped yesterday that Marshmallow Fluff now comes in strawberry and raspberry. Get ready for stitch night: I'm making Rice Krispie Treats with the strawberry fluff. Here you have the ingredients for the fluffernutter sandwich; all that's missing is the squishy white bread (preferably "Bunny Bread").


Speaking of strawberry fluff, here's a photo of the cutest bunny that I took at the MSPCA shelter today. We stopped by to see if there were any small adoptable dogs (there weren't). My dad took a fancy to a cat that he's considering, and while he was occupied in the cat room, I got into mischief with the bunnies. The white bunny (official name: Winter) was the most engaging little thing. He nibbled my fingers, he peered and peeked at me, and he did everything but print up a little sign asking to go home with me.


Here he is, snuggling with his mom, Sydney, but still looking at me. Tom, is now a good time to ask for another bun? Probably not. Elvis has been hell on wheels, and it hasn't helped that I have had to stay out of town extra long when my cold took a nasty turn. Antibiotics have me back on track though, so I'm heading home tomorrow. Dad, waving goodbye, gratefully: "Bye! Next time just push me down the stairs!"


Here's what I've been working on the last couple of days. More writing on Peaceful Paradise.


And a rosebud on Lois Minshall.


We went to the beach in Chatham today (the banner photo) and out to lunch for a seafood casserole. Then on to the shelter.

One last glimpse. I'd have to call him Fluffernutter of course.


See you in a couple of days with more WIPs and new starts--I'm on the road tomorrow.

That bunny is adorable! Do you really think Tom would say no?
Oh, and the stitching is nice too. LOL!

Catherine said...

Glad you are feeling better! Have a safe journey home. Aawww.....cute bunny....and yes, fluffernutter would be a perfect name.

Love to Stitch said...

ooooohhh Fluffernutters----- I remember eating those at Grandmas!!! Love them. My favorite though, it crunchy peanut butter and the regular white fluff. I might have to try the other 2 flavors! Looks like progress is being made on your WIPs-- excellent! Cant wait to see more :)

Courtney said...

your posts really make me want a bun!!

Deb said...

I didn't know that they made Strawberry!! My BIL is going to be in pig heaven. I have to ship him the regular stuff a couple times a year because they don't have it in California. He's going to be over the moon.

And your stitching, as always is wonderful. You sure get my creative juices going every time I see what you're working on.

valerie said...

I've never heard or seen this fluff stuff. Interesting. I think fluffernutter is a perfect name for a bunny though and that is one cute bunny! Great stitching!

Margaret said...

Ohh, you have to get the cute bunny!!! Have to have to! So cute! As for the fluffernutter -- I had no clue! I've never had any kind of that stuff. :D

Love your WIPs! So pretty!!!!! I have to figure out who Peaceful Paradise is by. I should know!

Beth Pearce said...

Take care on the road. Fluffernutter with raspberry fluff sounds quite amazing!

Your stitching looks great - can't wait to see the updates and new projects!

Safe travels home. I hope you'll have the company of Fluffernutter on the long ride home. He's so cute.
Your WIPs look wonderful!

barbara said...

How hard to resist that adorable little face!!

Your stitching looks wonderful, and it's great to hear that the meds have you back on track. Safe journeys!

Deborah said...

The raspberry fluff tastes pretty good in hot chocolate. I am just saying.

marly said...

Don't know what a fluffernutter is, but it sounds close to a term for my A-fib. That bunny is calling your name. He'll never be the same. Have a safe trip.

what a cute little mouth, surely no one would notice one more bunny....

Rabbits' Guy said...

Check your bag carefully! - or not =:<)


Better get to scooting on the fluffernutter, I hear the Wonder bread folks are bankrupt.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Winter Fluffernutter is an adorable bunny!

Siobhan said...

Oh my gosh--I think I'd be smuggling home that bunny & hoping Tom wouldn't notice something white hopping by him. ;)

I feel so un-American by saying that I have yet to understand the pull of Fluffernutter. I think it's the one thing I've stuck to out of the foods my mother refused to buy when I was younger. LOL

Beautiful progress on your samplers! Safe travels home!

Giovanna said...

Love your WIPs - that landscape in Paradise is so cute!

Michelle said...

Should I tell you that I'd never had a fluffernutter until recently? Sad, isn't it, how deprived I've been. Glad you're feeling better and able to head back home soon. Beautiful progress on both pieces!

Brigitte said...

Peaceful Paradise looks so great, and what a lovely rose you added to Lois. I can never say which of your samplers I love best. Can you? They are all so beautiful.
