PB and Apple Overload Sammie

I love a good salty-sweet combination. I think this is attributed to my childhood love of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

My mom used to make my pb and j with mint jelly. It was my favorite. Who eats that!?

My love for mint jelly began when my mom served it with lamb. She made a big deal about calling it special jelly and I think this, coupled with its sweet and refreshing flavor, fostered our strong love connection.

My lunch today was a pb and j remix… “Remix” because no jelly was actually involved. Instead I used this:

Apple Butter

(Even Sadie knows this stuff is the jam.)

My dad would always eat apple butter with cottage cheese which looked beyond repulsive but tasted ah-maze-ing. I stole this particular apple butter during my last visit home. My parents are the best sharers.

My lunchtime sammie featured a whole wheat Arnold’s sandwich thin, smothered in apple butter and creamy peanut butter.

I added several Brothers-All-Natural apple crisps for some crunchy crunch.

Perfection. Salty, sweet, doughy, delicious.
