Celebrate the FlufferNutter

 Today is Fluffernutter day. Don't know what fluffernutter is?? Neither did I for a bit of time but now my kids love it. Flufferutter is made up of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. The mixture is made into a sandwich and normally placed on white bread. In addition, other foods like desserts that have both peanut butter and marshmallow cream in the recipe. 

The one thing that helps make the fluffernutter possible. The invention of marshmallow cream during the early 20th century was the missing ingredient. Archibald Query from Somerville Massachusetts invented the tasty marshmallow creme in 1913. Later during War War I Emma Curtis created a recipe for the Liberty Sandwich Many other booklets came later that shared recipes that shared marshmallow creme with peanut butter as well as ideas to eat the mixture on sandwiches chopped with nuts or olives. 

Today why not enjoy a fluffernutter??

Early Polish Immigrants Come To America

 The first Polish Americans arrived in America in 1608. They came in an English ship titled Mary and Margaret. Those among the passengers with Polish descent were workers hired by the Virginia Company of London. These workers were hired to establish a glass industry in the colony. Perhaps it was meant to be as upon arrival the workers helped dig a well for providing fresh drinking water. 

Did you know that the first company in America was constructed and ran by Polish in America?? The factory made glass products. The members of the Polish also produced pitch and tar as well as other vital building materials that would help to build and strengthen the new colony. These products would be needed to help make it thru life in the colonies with the harsh climate and living conditions In addition the products that were created were also the first commercial items to be sent out of the Americans to Europe. 

One recipe that became a famous treat for Polish working population was City chicken. City chicken did not require you to touch your food as it was held on a skewer. The delicious meat was done like chicken but in reality was a lower cost pork or beef. I have shared a recipe that you may find interesting better yet visit the webiste where I borrowed this recipe and read about more interesting facts

  • 1 1/2 lbs city chicken (pork or veal pieces cut into cubes)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup oil


  • 1/2 cup broth, chicken or beef
  • 1-2 tablespoons flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add your eggs to a shallow bowl and beat
  3. In a separate bowl add your breadcrumbs, paprika and Parmesan cheese.
  4. If your pork and veal are not already placed on skewers, do so by alternating pork and veal pieces.
  5. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper.
  6. Dip the skewered meat in the egg and then the bread crumbs. Set aside and finish the rest of the meat.
  7. Heat your skillet to medium high and once hot, add your oil.
  8. Once the oil is hot, place your meat in the pan and turn the skillet down to medium. Brown skewered meat on all sides. About 2-3 minutes on each side.
  9. Once the meat is browned, place in a baking dish and cover with aluminum.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pork is no longer pink inside.
  11. To make the gravy turn the skillet on to medium heat.
  12. Add the broth to the skillet and break up all the browned bits.
  13. Add the flour a little at a time and whisk well so there are no lumps.
  14. Pour over cooked meat. (this did not make much gravy for me but it was tasty.)
