The New Ladies Lunch
We developed a classic lunch-with-the-girls menu, complete with tea sandwiches, chicken salad, and—hold on to your napkin, honey—the dessert cart
Choose your favorite fillings, and prepare up to a day ahead. Plan on 1⁄4 cup filling for each whole sandwich. Freeze bread slices until firm. (This makes it easier to trim and cut the sandwiches.)
What is it about this rolling relic that delights us so much? Maybe it's the sound of the squeaky wheels that signifies sweets are a-comin', the colorful assortment of confections that makes us feel like a kid in a candy shop, or the irresistible invitation to linger just a little longer over a shared slice of—oh, forget it, your own slice of something sinful. Whatever it is, we'll have the cheesecake, please.
