Hello Everybody! Today, January 5th is the anniversary of the death of George Washington Carver in 1943. Since he was born into slavery, we do not know his birth date. Carver was a famous botanist, chemist and inventor who came up with many new uses for the sweet potato, peanut and soybean. His life story is remarkable and so much has been written about him and we encourage you to look it up and read for yourself.

Today we have a Sweet Potato and Peanut soup in his honor, as well as our Sweet Potato Pie. Come on in and warm yourself up!
