cream cheese and olives on pumpernickel bread
When I was a little girl, this was my sandwich of choice. I had it nearly every single day packed in my lunch box. My dear mom would slice each green olive stuffed with pimiento (I'd never even seen a black one back then!). Being the third daughter with a younger brother, I adored any sort of special treatment. This sandwich spelled love to me. It made me feel very good to be the only child anyone had ever heard of that liked such a sandwich.
Beaver ate a cream cheese and jelly sandwich that his mother made him for a train trip. As soon as I saw that on tv, I had to try it. Next commercial break, there I was in the kitchen whipping it up. And it was terrific. Oh, and this wasn't too long ago...just last year. I love TVLand! :)
