I have received the best WWII document every. A beautiful cookbook on 500 recipes for packing victory lunches. In rationing – I have gotten quite board with my lunches that I take to work. Now the options are endless.
I wanted ideas for sandwich fillings. I don’t buy sandwich meat and I get tired of Peanut butter. I have started making bread each week- and I like to have a variety of sandwiches during the week.
Here are some of my favorites…
Green Bean filler: Take two cups of cooked green beans and cut them up into tiny pieces (I used my olu knife and a cutting bowl). Add chopped parsley (about a tablespoon), pepper, and a table spoon of mayonnaise. Stir together well. This will make enough for 4-5 sandwiches.
It tastes wonderful- and it is a great choice for meatless Monday!

Cottage Cheese and Carrots: Take a ½ cup of Cottage cheese. Add a ½ cup of grated carrots and 1/8 cup of raisins (the recipes calls for ½ and I used a ¼ cup and it was still too much). Mix together and eat on brown bread.
This is a sweet and filling sandwich. Great protein and vegetable servings. The carrots are so sweet. You could add mayonnaise if you wanted (I don’t like it so I left it out). Again – great for Meatless Mondays.

I also made chocolate macrons. It was baking chocolate, coconut and I put in currants. I think they taste much better without the currants. They are a great quick cookie for lunch.

I did discover that as I eat less meat – I crave milk. So I always pack a small jar of Milk in my lunches and it just hits the spot.
Happy lunch packing….
