    LOLLL THIS POST IS AMAZING. Yay B1!!!!!! I especially loved the recipe directions. I scrolled back up to look at the turkey not being on the bottom bun. You and Cynthia sound like such a great pair–LOVED the backstory behind this sandwich and the videos of B3 omg 😍😍

      Thanks, Erika! Videos of B3 are my favorite too, but I’m probably biased. May your future sandwiches have turkey at the bottom.

      Oh man, thanks for the kind comment! Cynthia is actually my witter, better half, but nice of you to say so! And I agree, B3 has a promising career as a future sandwich model. Thanks for reading!

      Wow, that may be the nicest compliment my sandwich-making has ever gotten. I’m not sure I’ve graduated from journeyman to master sandwich artist yet, but I agree it’s a real craft. What do you think, Cynthia, “B2 Dreams of Sandwich” documentary?

    Oh, my God, that video of your baby laughing is just the cutest thing ever. I also had a baby who did not like being restrained and really, really hated Baby Bjorns and anything else claustrophobic like that. It is OK. Eventually he’ll be big enough for a stroller.

    Also, even though I like cooking, I would be delighted if my husband ever made me such a beautiful sandwich. I like sandwiches. If I ask him for a sandwich, he just buys Subway. So you are doing pretty well.

      Glad to hear B3 isn’t the only one who refuses to be restrained! It’s so funny how strong their preferences can be at such a young age. We wonder how much of that is going to manifest in his personality later (expecting him to be quite the handful once he gets mobile). And Subway is pretty hard to beat imho, so that’s high praise. Thanks for reading!

    I’ll have to show this to my daughter in law. My little gandaughter Sloane is almost 3 months is making up for not sleeping at night with smiles and giggles👶🏻

      B3’s only just started with the laughing recently, but you’re right, the smiles and giggles definitely help make up for the sleepless hours. Congrats to you, your daughter-in-law, and granddaughter closing in on the 3 month mark!

      Glad you enjoyed it! It’s what we do it for. The smiles, I mean, not hurting people’s cheeks. Thanks for reading!

    You and B1 are the perfect fit for each other and I’m taking this not from the turkey sandwich but from your sense of humor? Humors? Regardless, turkey and avocado is my favourite lunch sandwich and it’s so super nice of you to take over the blog and make this for B1. Hi Cynthia! Your baby is effing ADORABLE. Next please make a B3 sandwich because I’m pretty sure those cheeks are edible.

      Those puffy cheeks are indeed hard to resist. And thanks, I think our sense of humor(s) gel well too. I hope to reach a point where B1 and I just sit on the couch and make each other laugh telepathically like weirdos. I think we’re close.

    I love this post! That last photo is JUST!! Nice to meet B2. Funny how you have no expectations of life events and then they just happen and you go with it. It’s cool to hear your perspective. Glad you’ve reached a routine. Best to all of you!

    Loved every bit of this from the back story to the videos, pics, and recipe to bananas in pajamas. Well done B2! Hope this was as much fun for you as it’s been for us to read. Line up your next recipe & guest appearance. 🙂

      I will admit, it was a lot of fun! And a lot harder than Cynthia makes it look (and it already looked hard). No future appearances lined up, but I will have my people talk to B1’s people. Thanks for reading!

      Yeah, when I look back on the show now it really does seem like they were high on something. Even as a kid it was very…odd. And hi! It’s Lyndsay from Coco Cake Land, wow! Cynthia talks about “Lyndsay from Coco Cake Land” and Teddy all the time (a normal amount, not a creepy amount or anything). Nice to finally say hello!

    This is hilarious. I love the very specific directions like “Shake mustard bottle to prevent mustard water spill.” It’s so true! Also, the picture of B3 with the giant sandwich half is the best thing I’ve seen all week.

    Andy, thanks for stepping in for Cynthia! She’s a fortunate lady 🙂

    I love your writing and am always happy to see what’s new here. This sandwich combination is one of my favorites!! Such a good reminder to make myself a treat at lunchtime 🙂

    Ahhh by the looks of it, you’re doing an amazing job B2!!!!!!! And that GIF is awesome. Pudgy glory everywhere, indeed! I loved reading from you because A–you’re pretty funny, and B–I’m so curious if you’re a lot Korean in your customs and ways of life? You even talk about gom-sae-ma-ree, and that my friend, is being Korean at its finest. ;)))

    well done B2 – As the father of five, I can relate- ” When’s Mom gonna cook” was a comment I received after a try at spaghetti- keep it up and get the baby to LOVE sandwiches!!

say hello!
