Housewife’s Sandwich Day

Apparently this is a day for my husband and for me!  He adores sandwiches, and I am a housewife.  Score for both of us then, lol. 

I think my favorite must be grilled ham and Swiss … or roast beef … or liverwurst with lots of lettuce and mayo.  What’s your favorite sandwich?  Will you make one to “celebrate the day”?

NATIONAL HOUSEWIFE’S DAY

Each year on November 3, millions of people across the country observe National Housewife’s Day.  This day was created to make the day a special one for the stay-at-home mom. Taking care of the children and the home is a 24/7 job that sometimes does not get the thank you that is much deserved.

Oh my goodness, did you know it’s National Blueberry Cheesecake Day?  I had no idea!  I love cheesecake, it was always one of my favorite desserts.  But I think blueberry must be my absolute favorite version.  More than cherry or strawberry, for sure.
