300 sandwiches

And all I can say is more power to New York Post reporter Stephanie Smith.

After making news with her quest for an engagement ring by making her boyfriend 300 sandwiches, Smith hasn’t received a ring yet, but did receive a book deal.

Smith signed a deal with Random House imprint Zinc Ink, which specializes in health, fitness and nutrition, to produce a book based on her sandwich quest. It is expected to be released around Valentine’s Day in 2015.

“The book will explore the journey, adventures and laughs behind the 300 sandwiches,’’ Smith told TODAY.com. “While the blog talks mostly about food and our adventures in the kitchen, the book will provide a more in-depth look at the issues and conversations between Eric and I as our relationship progressed. But of course, you’ll still get to see some tasty sammies.”

“When she told us about her romantic, passionate, and very funny quest to make her boyfriend 300 sandwiches, our first reaction was, ‘That’s a book,’’’ Zinc Ink co-president David Zinczenko told The New York Post.

  1. The best response to this news is…duh! Personally, I wasn’t offended or elated about the whole ring for 300 sandwiches thing I just felt like…”oh, okay” and kept it moving. But hell, she better get that money everybody under the sun seems to get book deals especially cookbooks so why not her…shrugs do you boo and turn it into an empire.

  2. Mmmgood

    Of course she got a book deal. A book deal (or maybe a tv show) was her aim and the whole reason for the blog (seems to be the case for many bloggers/vloggers these days). Good for her, though.

  3. well duh…wasn’t that the whole point? I know y’all didn’t think she was really in it for the ring.

  4. Good for her. I said at the time, that it was genious. Definately don’t knock the hustle.

    G’head girl,…..a TV show next!
