Strawberry Peanut Butter Pitas


I really enjoy having a farmers market just 4 blocks from my office at the University of Pennsylvania.  The PA growing season is a little behind mine in Delaware, so I get to extend the seasons for my favorite fruits and veggies.  I recently picked up some asparagus, bok choy, sugar snap peas and strawberries. The veggies went into three separate dinners, and the strawberries were mostly eaten straight up by my son and me with our lunches. Now, there are just a few left…

Some of these went into a simple, yet fun, lunch for me on my day off…Strawberry Peanut Butter Pitas!  Why use preserves when you have the fresh fruit around?

Directions

In a small bowl mix together the peanut butter, raisins and 1/2 the sunflower seeds.
