susan s big wonderful picnic sandwich


susan branch has the most delightful books (and illustrations) filled with the most interesting recipes and home-making ideas. this recipe comes from her "summer" book, with a few of my own personal changes. feel free to switch ingredients, more or less, to suit your own tastes. cooking time is "pressing" the sandwich.
