Smelly Danielly

A little while ago, while we were still living with the parentals, Chad and I were looking at all the Air Miles we had accumulated over the years and thought that we should do something with them. Of course, planning a vacation was not the first thing that came to our mind (I have no idea why not), buying things for the kitchen was what we wanted to do.

When we realized Air Miles sold deli style meat slicers and we had more than enough to purchase one, we became obsessed with the idea of having one. Not only was it super cool and made us look fancy, but it would allow us to buy large amounts of sodium filled cured meat at a discounted price and then slice them at home as we needed them.

Nom nom nom!

Chad has become the Master Deli Slicer. He has it down to a science and weighs out his meat just like in the deli. It’s kind of adorable to watch.

Talking about slicing meats and making sandwiches actually reminds me of a very important topic I have yet to discuss; Tim Hortons and their damn Paninis.

I get it, Italians are cool and people want to be like us, but if you feel the need to do so, can you please check your facts before coming out with nation wide commercials?

In Italian Panino = 1 Sandwich and Panini = 2 or more sandwiches, so when Tim Hortons advertises their ‘Paninis’ they are really advertising their sandwicheses, which clearly makes NO SENSE and drives Italians CRAZY. The only thing that would be more maddening than Tim Hortons selling paninis is if they decided to sell gluten free paninis.

So, next time you need a sandwich, just pop by our house and old man Ciavarro will make you a panino, full of gluten, sodium and every good thing!
