T he sandwich has come a long way since the Earl of Sandwich started it all back in the 1700's. As the legend goes, this royal Briton had his meat brought to him between two slices of bread so that he wouldn't have to leave the gambling tables at meal time. For some of these 1967 model sandwiches, we'll wager, he'd gladly interrupt his game. Add some of these extra surprises to a Sandwich Lunch. Bits of sweets: jam turnovers, semisweet chocolate morsels, favorite cookies, miniature marshmallows. Something to munch on: cheese balls rolled in chopped walnuts, dried apricots, peanut buttered honey graham crackers, tiny box of raisins. THE SANDWICH.
