We ready the sandwiches at night time and took together with us for the morning journey. By mid-day we had been on the lake. As we unfold the sheets on the grass the youngsters felt hungry and demanding meals. As I opened the basket I smelt one thing bizarre. The sandwiches with hen filling was giving out disagreeable odor. The sandwiches had gone dangerous. To our success we found out that it had gone dangerous and determined to not eat it.
