Back to School BLOG PARTY

It's "Back to school" time, so
we're celebrating all week long.


With recipes for lunches and contests and fun!

To all the moms out there, you rock!!

Br-r-r-r-ing! Lunchtime!

You know kids swap what's in their lunchbox, don't you? My son did all the time. Until I came up with items that he loved. It didn't always have to be a sandwich. He liked leftovers. Leftover pizza.
Leftover spaghetti (cold!). Nibbles of cheese and salami. Sliced apples with peanut butter dip. I tried to be creative. And I'd grill him when he got home to make sure he ate what I'd given him. [Oh, I didn't grill him, but I did ask leading questions. It's the mystery writer in me, right?]

So what can you make that is fun, flavorful, and the winner that no kid will swap for lunch? Not just any old cheese and baloney or peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

How about a recipe right out of The Long Quiche Goodbye? Peanut Butter Apple Pie Sandwich. It's got everything in it. Apples, raisins, cheese and peanut butter. It is downright satisfying. And it's EASY!!!

Peanut Butter Apple Pie Sandwich


2 slices of your favorite bread

2 slices sharp Cheddar or Edam cheese [I used a delicious Cheddar made at Mississippi State]

2 slices of your favorite apple [I use a pippin, skin on]

10-20 California raisins [I use Sun-Maid]

2 Tbs. of Creamy Peanut Butter [I use Jif; - hence the picture above.]


  • Spread peanut butter on a slice of bread
  • Dot each with raisins
  • Layer on the apples and cheese
  • Add the other piece of bread. [You can put peanut butter on it, too].
  • Slice and enjoy.
[Note: For this picture, I used a thicker harder bread so it would photograph well and you could see the inside layers. When you use a nice, soft piece of bread, it all melds together.]
