Sandwich Memo

I came across this newspaper clipping in a recipe box at the cottage. I love the title 'Sandwich Filling Memo'. It sounds like something that was included in a company newsletter along with the guidelines on proper skirt lengths and Christmas party etiquette. Enjoy and please! please! please! let me know if you have tried any of these....creative....combinations.
