Rolled sandwiches will stay fresh until lunch time.

Brown-bag lunchers will find merit in these two rolled sandwiches. Both are easy to eat out of hand and can safely wait at room temperature until lunch time without loss of freshness. One has a bright green wilted-lettuce wrapper; the other is rolled up in a thin flour tortilla.

You can make any of the sandwiches the night before and chill them overnight to keep them as fresh as possible. Slip the sandwich into your lunch bag with a few cookies and some fruit, then hit the road.
