Do they even have that in Poland? #2
Peanut Butter. Honestly, the simple answer is, I don't know. I think they probably have peanut butter somewhere in Poland, and I'm sure our city will be a place where you might be able to find it. I know that Martin did not grow up eating it, and as far as I know, none of his cousins eat it or any of their kids.
Now, I may be the perfect wife and mother. The most diligent housekeeper and most skilled cook. BUT, every once in while, when there is a storm raging outside and the power goes out and I can't use the oven ,and then I could use the gas stove but I don't have sufficient lighting, and it could be dangerous... I take out the peanut butter. And my children eat peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat bread. And they like it. They say "please mother, may we have another peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and another, after that?...oh thank you mother, you must love us so much to give us peanut butter and jelly!" What can I say, peanut butter brings out the best in them. It is a special treat and I would hate for them to miss out on something so special.
Well, it turns out that we have just such storms and power outages at least 3 to 4 times a week at our house. With my mothering credentials there really is no other explanation as to why we go through so much peanut butter. So, I will be taking one of these with me to Poland:
I mean, if it can happen 3 to 4 times a week in TEXAS, where drought is raging right now, I can't even imagine how bad the storms must get in Poland. I must be prepared... as any A+ mom would be. Quite frankly, I do it for the children. I do it for the children.
