How many of you actually know who George Washington Carver is? Probably a lot of you. Well, I'd heard his name over and over in my life but I couldn't tell anyone what he was known for. I finally read about him in E.D. Hirsch Jr. and John Holden's "What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know". He invented ways to use peanuts that most people would never think of. Thanks to him all those American moms out there who are tired at the days end and don't want to bother cooking because their husbands won't be home to eat it anyway can just whip up a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids and self and relax. Take it easy. All those moms who are living abroad trying to figure out how to make food their kids will eat can just pack up a few of those "Jelly and Sandwiches", as my kids call them, and go down to the train station and eat them while they wait. Thank you George!
