Margaret's School Luncheons
As Margaret had to take her luncheon to school with her sometimes, she had
to learn how to make a good many kinds of sandwiches, because she soon grew
tired of one or two sorts.
Cut the bread very thin and spread lightly with butter, and after they are
done trim off the crusts neatly, not taking off all the crust, but making
the two pieces even. For plain meat sandwiches, chop the meat very fine,
sprinkle with salt, and spread on the bread; if it is too dry, put in a very
little cream as you chop the meat.
Make a very little French dressing,--about a teaspoonful of oil, a
sprinkling of salt, and four drops of lemon juice, or vinegar. Chop a
hard-boiled egg very fine, mix with the dressing, and spread.
Spread the bread, lay on a lettuce-leaf and cover with French dressing, or
with mayonnaise. These sandwiches are about the best for school, as they do
not get dry.
Chop the celery fine, mix with a French or mayonnaise dressing, and spread.
Chop six olives fine, mix with a tiny bit of mayonnaise and spread.
Chicken and Celery Sandwiches
Mix chopped celery and chopped chicken, as much of one as the other, wet
with French or mayonnaise dressing and spread.
Chop the nuts fine and add just enough cream to moisten; sprinkle with salt
Scrape off all the skin from the sardines, and take out the bones and drain
them by laying them on brown paper; mash them with a fork, and sprinkle with
lemon juice, and spread.
Tomato and Cheese Sandwiches
Slice a small, firm tomato very thin indeed, and take out all the seeds and
soft pulp, leaving only the firm part; put one slice on the bread, and one
thin shaving of cheese over it, and then put on bread. A slice of tomato
with a spreading of mayonnaise makes a nice sandwich.
Cream Cheese and Nut Sandwiches
Spread thin Boston brown bread with just a scraping of butter, then spread
with cream cheese and cover with nuts; this is a delicious sandwich.
All jams and jellies make good sandwiches, and fresh dates, chopped figs,
and preserved ginger are also nice.
