Friday, October 8, is National Fluffernutter Day. Yep, that fluffy marshmallow and peanut butter sandwich you remember from childhood. Marshmallow Fluff was actually invented in 1917 by Archibald Query in his basement; by 1930, it had become a household product. In 1930, New Englanders could tune into a weekly radio program called “Flufferettes,” which featured comedy skits, music, and dramas (click on the link to hear the theme song). Today, it continues to be a supermarket staple and is often used in the American snack favorite Marshmallow Fluff Treats, otherwise known as Rice Crispy Treats.
I got a really nice review over at Savvy Vegetarian. Even though she calls me Rinaldi at one point, the reviewer seemed to really have paid attention to the recipes and what I was trying to put out there. So, a big “thank you” to Savvy Vegetarian.
The place where I work has a bunch of bake sales going on to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), and I going to be put to work making pasta salad for my department’s bake sale. My brain is already at work trying to figure out how I want to approach this.
While we’re on the subject of breast cancer, please help underprivileged women get free breast cancer screenings by clicking the button at the Breast Cancer Site. It’s EASY and FREE, and will take literally 2 seconds.
So, that’s it for this week. Have a great week, and have yourself a nice fluffernutter sandwich.
