This just made me smile. I was Googling for old-school advertisements for sandwiches, and came across this. Can you imagine if I brought these home to sleep on?
The first thing E would say is: “You’re sleeping on the tomato. You know how I feel about raw sliced tomatoes on sandwiches.”
E is 100 sandwiches away from buying an engagement ring, according to his declaration today in the New York Post.
Apparently my effort to make him 300 sandwiches—and the international social media scrutiny that followed—have springboarded E into action. He’s starting to do his engagement research.
I should be thrilled right?
E wrote in his essay today that he’s been contemplating what his engagement performance should be. “A 300 dancer Bollywood proposal spectacular? 300 John Cusacks with boomboxes overhead? A 300-member flashmob gospel choir? A combination of the three?” I think the John Cusacks could be cute.
Additionally, sources tell me he’s also consulting guidance on the ring as well. I overheard him talking to friends of ours during Thanksgiving about “buying one of these” as he waved his left hand in his face. The day after, he asked me what type of ring I’d like for myself. “I just want to know for the future,” he said. “Do you want a square or round stone? What type of setting do you want?” I almost dropped my dinner when he asked.
Am I happy? Am I excited? Do I feel like our engagement is just a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches away?
Actually, I feel disappointed.
After E’s hilarious, heartfelt essay, one thing is certain:
I absolutely, positively, for no fathomable reason whatsoever cannot EVER wear that red floral dress ever again.

After weeks of preparation, testing recipes, tasting sandwiches, and even getting the best of the best sandwich ideas from you, loyal readers, I hate to disappoint you (and E)….
but I am TOO FULL from last night’s dinner to make a sandwich.
But, once I digest last night’s meal, I might make E a #52, “Thanksgiving Leftovers” Turkey and Trimmings Sandwich.
Or, my favorite, #202, “The Game Changer” Thanksgiving Shooter Sandwich.
Or, I might eat some of E’s homemade turkey soup instead.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all.
I’ve got six hours until that table is full of hungry friends. Time to start cooking!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
—that my man had already put our 22 pound turkey in the brine AND prepared pumpkin creme brulee before I got home from a full day of work today!
—that we aren’t traveling for Thanksgiving in the middle of the crazy Noreaster slamming the East Coast.
—that we have a full house coming for dinner tomorrow, ranging in age from 6 weeks to mid 40s (we’ll keep the identity of that guest to ourselves).
—the “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” tv special. A classic, always.
—that I’ll be able to Skype all of my family members a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow and laugh, giggle and tell them I love them, and that I have a lovely partner in crime to share yet another Thanksgiving feast with.
