Challenge Accepted

Perth Bride Magazine - Saturday, October 12, 2013

It started off as a playful request turned into a challenge. Stephanie Smith has challenged herself to make 300 sandwiches (& blogging about it) in return for a marriage proposal.

“One lazy summer afternoon just over a year ago.... I assembled turkey and Swiss on toasted wheat bread. I spread Dijon mustard generously on both bread slices, and I made sure the lettuce was perfectly in line with the neatly stacked turkey slices.” “Eric devoured the sandwich as if it were a five-star meal, diving in with large, eager bites. “Babes, this is delicious!” he exclaimed. As he finished that last bite, he made an unexpected declaration of how much he loved me and the sandwich. “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!”


Is a happily-ever-after as simple as making  a few sandwiches? She is currently on her 186th sandwic and it her recipes are getting more elborate as each day passes.

“Making all of these sammies, I’ve learned how much Eric loves sharing cooking with me. He enjoys going to the grocery store with me, picking out ingredients and planning dinners. Though I still want to get engaged and get married and live happily ever after, I’ve also put less pressure on the race to the 300th sandwich and I’m enjoying the cooking experience with Eric.” is a beautifully photographed blog that documents her quest to woo her boyfriend with a ray of bread-and-meat creations.
