Sally Lunn Bread

Late night I was craving bread, but didn't have any in the house.  I grabbed a recipe book and started flipping though.  I found a recipe for Sally Lunn bread.  I don't know who Sally is, but her bread is delicious.  Only a few simple ingredients and when served hot, it is a lot like a pound cake, but not so dense.  While the bread was baking, I found the inscription below on the inside cover of the book.
Thank you for the myriad ways you help me, Mom.

Chicken-Guac Pita

Chicken-Guac Pita:  Roasted chicken breast, sliced thin, seasoned and grilled on the flat top with onions which had been previously roasted in the bird.  The pita is warmed, split, filled with fresh guacamole and then the chicken and onions.  That's how I spell sandwich.
