Stephanie Smith started a blog to document the 300 sandwiches she needed to make her boyfriend in order for him to propose. Smith has since been making sandwiches for said boyfriend — Eric — and documenting them on her blog 300 Sandwiches.
“You’ve been up for 15 minutes and you haven’t made me a sandwich?” This was the refrain Smith heard every morning from her boyfriend, Eric, she told the New York Post in September. When Smith made Eric a sandwich one day, he told her, “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!” So began the sandwich-making journey and a fury of predictably angry reactions as her blog gained traction in the media.
