What do muffins and rolls have in common? Breakfast baked goods? Good with tea? Nooooo. Come on…think about it. They all have to do with your belly, silly.

And not what you put into your belly…but what your belly looks like. So I started wondering…What other foods are used to describe our bodies? Hmmm…we’ve got marshmallow, Jello, jelly, bacon, and sausage. Let’s just say I wouldn’t touch that last one…with a ten foot pole.

Back when pants were worn high and met the belly button… “Hello Belly Button”…it was all about packin’ rolls. If there were any rolls to be had…they were packaged in denim…well-sealed and preserved for years. We hadn’t yet learned of the roll’s sweet cousin….Muffy.

But time’s they are a changin’. Enter Muffy.
Now it’s all about the muffin. With low riding pants...the packaging is all different. There isn’t any place for the hips and belly to hide…so they spring up and over the waistband. Whala…a freshly baked muffin top. Yum. Yum.

With all this talk of baked goods…I’m looking for a little butter and jelly to slap on my muffins. Or maybe a little something for my buns. But wait, that’s a food of a different body part.
