I was sitting in my kitchen enjoying a cup of tea and a guest comes along with a snack she brought with her.
My tea was accompanied by one of my favorite snacks from my days living in Mississippi. A sandwich made up of organic or home baked raisin bread with peanut butter – oops! organic peanut butter – and sliced bananas.
This was also one of Elvis Presley’s favorites. It was fairly common for children where I grew up. We didn’t have peanut butter and jelly.
She brought peanut butter and apples and wheat crackers. She put peanut butter on the crackers and topped each cracker with a very thin slice of apple.
It was nothing short of sensational. Quick to make. Elegant to serve and I enjoyed every one of her crackers.
When I repeat this for myself, however, the peanut butter will definitely be organic – her peanut butter was out of a jar with lots of ugly stuff processed in and her apples were not organic. In spite of those transgressions, it was a delicious snack.
My peanut butter will be the kind I grind at the store myself or grind at home of organic peanuts – apple crisp organic apples – and organic wheat crackers.
I highly recommend this! It makes a great lunch or afternoon snack. It is also quite healthy – what more could one ask!
