With This Sandwich, I Thee Wed

Three Hundred Sandwiches

I’m not sure whether I have any feminist readers.  If I do, I apologize in advance, but I’m going to say something here that you may not agree with.  Sometimes it can be fun to let your man think he’s the man.

According to Stephanie, her “boyfriend E is obsessed with two things: Star Wars and sandwiches. During a Sunday lunchtime viewing of ‘Return of the Jedi’ he told [her]: “you are 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!”  And so she did what any self-respecting woman in her 30s would do. (Or did she?)   She got started.

She’s been making him sandwiches and counting down to her 300th by posting sandwich recipes and other foodie inspiration on her super charming blog here.  (She’s currently on sandwich #187.)

She says:

“Make me a sandwich.”  That’s what my boyfriend,  E,  asks without fail every morning. Not “babe, where are my keys?” Not, “honey, where are my socks?” And no, not even,  “c’mon, just the tip?”

If you’re thinking he sounds like a jerk, don’t.  She goes on to explain the playful nature of this “dare” and her boyfriend’s own generosity in the kitchen.  I sincerely hope these two work out because if they don’t, it seems pretty likely this will end with a dull butter knife in one of his vital organs.

So what do you think – cute or totally sexist?
