Reader Cathie says "Hi Zona; Thanks for all these wonderful recipes. I've been struggling with cutting down our recipes for just us two. I saw your ham salad sandwich the other day and I was reminded of when we were kids my mom substituted bologna for half of the ham as a cost saving measure. I still prefer the flavor to this day. Also, for a nutty twist, make your ham salad and add a bit of peanut butter to it. I'd start small and add to taste because it makes a big difference. It's a delicious surprise (if you can tolerate peanuts, that is.) Have a wonderful summer. --Cath, a fan."
