If you know Jenna then you are probably already sick of our love affair. Unfortunately for you, I am not. My best friend is finally coming to visit me in DC next week, and it is all I can do to continue to focus at work and not shout it from the rooftops. I am going to take her to all the very best spots (here's lookin' at you Malcolm X park) & encourage her to eat more food than humanly possible. I have a list going of all the things we have to do, but I also know that there is an 80% chance we will be too busy laying on my bed talking about all the little things we have missed in each other's live the last few months to actually accomplish them all! If you have ever been here, I am curious to hear what your favorite things about the District are. And if you are nearby but haven't visited the monuments after 10pm, then you are sorely missing out. Consider that fair warning.
Jenna happens to work for a lovely little all natural marshmallow company called Kerfluffles. Now that they have created endless magical flavors like strawberry shortcake and dreamsicle, they are working on their vegan recipe! I was so excited to get a sample of their first successful test batch. Keep in mind that these are purely experimental & could be totally different from where they end up in a few months, but they were delicious none the less. I had to remove the bag from Greg's hands so that I could save a few to melt in my hazelnut hot chocolate. I drank a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows made by my best friend, on my porch in a cool summer evening's rain storm. Things can't get much more dreamy than that.
I will be really excited to see more vegan marshmallows for sale. It's always nice to have multiple options! It's a luxury that I sometimes forget exists. Also can we talk about how cute their branding is? I couldn't help but break out my bunny bowls. It's the only thing I thought could rival their postcard in "aww" factor. Ya know, aside from all the disgusting pictures Jenna and I are gonna take together next week.
