[FHCx282] National Pierogi Day/National Fluffernutter Day

TODAY IS NATIONAL PIEROGI DAY AND NATIONAL FLUFFERNUTTER DAY!

The PBJ, as a sandwich, is not boring. It’s not even outlived its awesomeness. But sometimes what could really go well with peanut butter on bread is some marshmallow fluff. It’s a different kind of sweet to balance out the savory, salty peanut flavor. It’s better than bad; it’s good!

PB. Fluff.

Some like to have a thickness ratio that the fluff/PB is equal to the thickness of the bread. We’re ok with just a bit on each side.

We also have to pay respects to the pierogi today. While many cultures have their own dumplings – Chinese have bao, Japanese have gyoza, America has… dumplings – Eastern Europe’s dumplings are high on the chart of tasty starch. Whether you call them piroshok, varenyky, pelmeni, or pierogi, we’re all talking about something very similar – dough wrapping some tasty potato-y, onion-y, possibly cheesy stuff.

We got our pierogi courtesy of the Highland Grill, whose Steak and Pierogies entree is one of SP‘s favorites.

Fried to perfection.

Yummy!

Tomorrow is National Moldy Cheese Day and National Submarine-Hoagy-Hero-Grinder Day, because we needed a third day to celebrate hoagies.
