When John Tyler served in the U.S. House of Representatives, fellow Virginian James Madison was President. Tyler often was invited to the White House for  parties, but he did not like the rich French meals and he wrote his wife, “I had much rather dine at home in our plain way… What with their sauces and flum-flummeries, the victuals are intolerable.”

Flum-flummeries is my new favorite description of something I don’t like.
