In honor of Passover, I introduced my non-Jewish colleagues to the wonders of the Passover lunch.<p>It's not the Seder meal, but what I might have brought to school for lunch back in the 1970s, when the affluent Jews of suburban New Jersey ate tasteless food to remind themselves that thousands of years ago, they didn't have nice professional jobs like being a lawyer, or maybe a CPA. That's a steady living. I know David Birnbaum does nicely as an accountant; maybe you could look into that?<p>So what's the sandwich?

It's like finding a store selling an Isadora Duncan commemorative scarf.<p>Nonetheless, freelance radio producer Melissa LaCasse and I decided to try the one offered by <a href="">The Breslin</a> in New York, listed as "fried peanut butter & banana sandwich with bourbon & vanilla."<p><strong> Melissa:</strong> How many of these do you sell?
