My guests left my house a few minutes ago. Before leaving we made a big tea with sandwichs and icecream with homemade cranberry sauce. I made the sandwich paste with cut up chicken breast, mayo and diced canned sweet pimientos. It was yummy and filling. I made extra sandwichs to eat on their trip back. Normally it is not more than a little over 2 hours, but at this time of the year (summer), the highway is jammed and anything can happen. Now I am mylotting, andwering some of your comments and preparing myself to read some of your posts. See you!

Your sandwiches sound delicious. We have the same problem in summer, jammed roads and high ways.

Usually the trip is 2 hours, but in Summer it takes over 4 at times.

@marguicha When I go to Italy to see my Mother in winter, most of the time in a little more than one hour I am there, in summer, it once took 5 hours.

@LadyDuck I remember once, years ago, that we decided to go to the beach on Friday evening. It seemed that everyone in Santiago had had the same idea. Finally, we parked in a restaurant in the highway and ate while we let the time go by.

Your practice is similar to ours of packing what we call " baon" for people we love or care for especially on long boat or bus trips if they live in another island We make chicken sandwich almost the same way except i prefer mine with lots of minced fresh onions, not everybody likes it so i keep it separate and sprinkle on mine.

My picky cousin does not eat onions. But I´m sure that it would have been a nice change for the rest of us.

@marguicha the kids don't like onions too, so i keep the minced onions in a small tupperware and scoop it with a small teaspoon for those who want it in their sandwich

Not only do you look after your guests while they are with you, you make sure they are ok on the way home

My aunt, cousin and my cousin´s cousin by the other side treat me like a queen when I go to visit them. Whatever I do is little in comparison. BTW, they brought me real country eggs, a plant I wanted to have and a couple of melons

I turn many foods into something to put between 2 bread slices. If the bread is special, much better. I use tuna, chicken thin slices of roasted meat, you name it.

How thoughtful and kind of you to prepare extra food for your guests who are taking a long trip. The chicken sandwiches you've described sound delicious. We do the same here less the pimientos with shallots, spring onions, salt and pepper.
