Peanut butter and jam

An American student in Aix gave me a sandwich with precisely that and pruneaux d'Agen and some grape juice, when I was squatting in the staircase.

A religous said: "vous voyez comme c'est bon la solidarité" - but it was not just solidarity, it was generosity, and it was individual, from a particular person, to a particular person: she gave not from a stock of superfluous merchandise, but from things she liked to eat herself. And it was the first time I mixed peanut butter with any jam, it was raspberry, and it was delicious.

God bless America!
(one does not have to be president or Bush to say that)

It was invented during WW2 it seems
