CALIFORNIA RANCH FOREMAN SANDWICH: Here's a welcome change for school lunch -- or for that inevitable mid-afternoon snack. Snip California dried figs into small pieces, right onto bread richly spread with peanut butter and broken nut meats. Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar.
TOASTED FIG & CHEESE SANDWICH: Snip California dried figs onto bread slices. Lay a slice of mild American cheese on top of the figs. Top with a fig split in half and dotted generously with butter or margarine. Broil until cheese begins to melt. Extra good served with apple and walnut salad, a sweet pickle or two, a hot soup and favorite beverage. Makes an ideal lunch-at-home for busy homemakers.
