Story Behind this Recipe

Eating these always make me nostalgic for school lunches. It's an easy, relatively simple sandwich but I have never seen this anywhere else so I posted this recipe. My sister, who went to the same school, says 'I don't remember this.' I wonder why. A lot of people seem to like it anyway!
