Adventures in Eating: Mom’s Light Supper Sandwich
By Rosemarie | January 1982
“Whew!!.. we got through the Holiday Season. I feel as though I have a “food hang-over”, or whatever you want to call it. Our Christmas was exceptional this year and we are grateful our children could all be with us and share the joys of the season together. I hope you too had a warm and loving season.
Having this “food hang-over”, it was difficult to get into a recipe mood this month. We have all been cooking up a storm, and I felt we needed some respite from this but still have a tasty concoction we could quickly assemble.
Very often on Sundays, while I was growing up, my mother would prepare a “Sunday” supper. She was a superb cook, but now and then, took time off. I wanted to share one of those ideas with you for this month’s recipe.
MOM’S LIGHT SUPPER SANDWICH
1 lb. sliced Jack cheese
2 pita pocket breads
1/2 bunch chopped parsley
4 green onions, chopped,
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 lettuce, shredded
Cut pita bread in half, and heat in oven. Have other ingredients ready. Fill pocket bread with ingredients listed. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with your favorite homemade or canned soup, cottage cheese with fruit, or just by itself. It is hearty and delicious. Add some fresh tarragon sprigs, if you have any. That really adds a dimension to the flavor. Bon appetit!
