A Dressed Up Lettuce Sandwich

September  7, 2012
Author Notes

Have you ever made yourself a lettuce sandwich.....lettuce and mayo or butter sandwiched between two pieces of bread? Sort of bland but supposedly great if you suffer from insomnia and eaten about a half hour before bed, or so they say. I like them but to add a little pizzazz I make them with a pimiento cheese mayo. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
