“Brother Bo's (in) famous olive sandwiches. I would NEVER eat these when I was a child. What little girl would eat something called bug sandwiches? In my old age I've since come to love and appreciate these sandwiches. Bo says for a nice presentation, cut off the bread crusts. Traditionally served with a glass of previously-frozen milk. Psst-I have a little secret. Don't tell Bo, but sometimes I sneak a few thin slices of red onion in my sandwich.”
