This Fruit Stack Peanut Butter Sandwich is a great idea for kids or even adults who simply love sandwiches. Instead of serving peanut butter toast with a side of fresh fruit – why not combine them?! Thinly sliced apples and bananas are stuffed between two slices of toasted sandwich bread – slathered in chunky peanut butter. A drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon hides beneath these tasty layers as well! Perfect as a healthy breakfast, lunchbox sandwich or after-school snack. Serve it will a tall glass of OJ or even chocolate milk!

Fruit Stack Peanut Butter Sandwich

FRUIT OPTIONS:
Try these fruits – slice them paper thin – or for soft fruits like raspberries – simply smash them between the bread and call them “fruit smasher” sandwiches!

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Berries
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Apricots
  • Navel orange slices
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Grapes
  • Mango

Try almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter – or good old fashioned peanut butter. Chunky or creamy.

HOW TO:
makes 1 sandwich

  • 2 slices sandwich bread
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced long ways
  • 1 small green apple, sliced paper-thin (or fruit of choice)
  • 3 Tbsp chunky peanut butter
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • a few dashes of cinnamon

TO MAKE:
Toast the bread. 
Slice the fruit paper thin – if you are not eating this sandwich right away you can toss the fruit in a splash of lemon juice to keep them from browning.
Slather peanut butter on both slices of bread. 
Layer fruit. 
Add a drizzle of maple and dashes of cinnamon.
 Close sandwich and slice!

There is always something interesting going on in our office. Last week we had a very special visitor that we thought we would share with you. One of our amazing Customer Care employees, Marilyn, was recently asked to take part in a project for her niece’s son, Cameron. Cameron was given an assignment by his first grade teacher based on the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. Each child was asked to make a flattened version of themselves and send them on various adventures (via mail). Below is an explanation of the assignment and “flat Cameron’s” visit to the Le Top (C. K. Enterprises) offices. It’s so cute. Enjoy!

It’s fun, it’s cute, it’s high quality…and no returns!”
– Lori Clarke, Owner of Tot to Teen Village boutique (on why she loves Le Top)

1.      What is one special or fun fact about your store that a typical customer wouldn’t know?
Lori: We’ve been in business for 74 years, and owned now by a third generation.

2.      Describe the neighborhood of Kalamazoo, Michigan where your store is located. The name has a great ring to it! Can you name 3 fun facts about your town your store is located in?
Lori: 
Fact #1) President Obama came to our town in June for one of our local school’s graduation because our state offers free college tuition for graduating students to Michigan schools.

Fact #2) The baseball player Derek Jeter was raised in Kalamazoo.

Fact #3) We have lots of lakes for fishing, boating, and water sports.

3.      What sets you apart as a successful children’s store?
Lori: We offer items that people cannot find at your typical stores. We’re unique!

4.      Where did the name Tot to Teen Village come from?
Lori: The owner designed the inside of the store to reflect different parts of the U.S.A.

5.      Back to school is here – what has been flying off the shelves and this fall’s “must-have”?
Lori: For girls, it is anything purple and “fru-fru.”

6.      Tell us about the school lunches your mom or dad made for you when you were a kid? What would someone find inside your brown paper bag or tin lunch box?
Lori: I seldom took my lunches to school as a child – our cafeteria food was pretty good. If I did take a lunch, it was always a bologna sandwich with Miracle Whip and a Hostess Twinkie…and no fruit because I hate fruit.

7.      What tip would you give to a parent dressing a child for fall? Any hot trends?
Lori: Don’t fight with them! Let them be comfortable, and buy easy-to-care-for items (merchandise). That way, everyday dressing is easier.

8.      If you had one piece of advice for someone trying to break into children’s retail, what would it be?
Lori: Are you insane? Actually I would say: You can’t be everything, so pick a niche and do it well.

9.      What is your best or most memorable moment in your store?
Lori: Finding out I was having a granddaughter, and going crazy buying clothes for her! (my “bring-me-home” I bought was of course Le Top.)

10.      What collection or piece from Le Top or Le Top Baby line do you love from the Fall/Holiday 2010 collection?
Lori: My favorites are the Le Top baby Pretty Rosebuds collection and Lavender’s Blue.

A funny thing happened the other day. A potential vendor came in to our office to discuss his services. He saw all the photos on our walls and realized that our Le Top playwear line was one that his son modeled for back in 2001 (Le Top Wildlife Park collection spring 2002). He later sent me the photo and it happened to be the one I look at everyday while eating my lunch in our break room. What a co-ink-ee-dink!


Spencer now 10 years old (this month) and way too big to model our clothes. He is still a super cutie and also an athlete that loves to play many sports. Though soccer is the sport of the moment, his absolute favorite is baseball. Spencer is not just a one trick pony, as our former model is also a Cub Scout (currently at the rank of Webelo) with the ultimate goal of becoming an Eagle Scout. Go for it Spencer! We know you can do it.

His dad tells me that 5th grade starts soon and “he is very excited about it because it will be his last year before he moves into middle school”. I guess he is looking forward to a year of being a big fish is a small pond. Those were always my favorite years too!

Keep up the good work Spencer and be sure to keep us ‘in the loop’ about your life.
