diaper sandwich
 n.— «Janice Bourgeois Macomber, who insists that even people she has just met call her Aunt Boo, adds a spoonful of amber-colored cane syrup to cut the acid in her court bouillion, a tomato sauce that she uses to simmer redfish. And for a quick dessert, she sloshes syrup over thickly buttered white bread, then folds it over to make what kids here call a “diaper sandwich.”» —“The Old-Fashioned Secret of Holiday Treats? Sugar Cane” by Julia Moskin, Kim Severson in Abbeville, La. New York Times Dec. 13, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
