    So....you didn't like history as a history teacher....so how did your students fare?
     
    Back on topic. Central CT. Grinders or subs. Rarely hoagies.
     
    On a personal note, those pictures show a stacked amount of meat. Looks very efficient. I actually prefer my grinder, sub or hoagie to have the meat loosely placed so there are pockets of air. The flavors come out more and it doesn't taste like meat cardboard. I would not like a sub like the ones pictured. Stack it loosely, the flavors do not meld together into something that tastes like a deli meat roll wrapped in lettuce.
     
    Again, a personal pet peeve. I do enjoy reading Mr Hoffman's posts so that was just a joke and I meant no disrespect. He is certainly a very entertaining and valued poster. No offense meant Michael.
     
    Again, loosely place meat. I need therapy for that...sigh....

      My students did quite well. I kept a Louisville Slugger at my desk at the suggestion of the Brothers. As all of my students were football players, and I was a football coach at the high school, they managed to pick up a few things during the course of the year.

        In WI, we call them subs or grinders.  No hoagies here.


        I've never heard "grinder" here...

            Where do wedges fit in?  I thought that was a New England thing, too.

              I had the best sub sandwich ever at Parkside Philly Cheesesteaks (yes, the cheesesteaks are great, as well).  12 slices of ham, 6 slices of salami, six slices of provolone cheese, lettuce, tomatoe, onions, oregano and oil and vinegar dressing.  It was on a nice soft italian bread.  Just the way I like it.  The place is on 340 Belleville Ave.  Bellebille, NJ.

                During WWII, workers at the Hog Island Shipyard carried sandwiches for lunch.  These were made with Italian meats and cheese on a big loaf of Italian bread.  (Italian stone cutters I have worked with eat the same thing today)  These sandwiches became known as Hoggies (after Hog Island)  This became corrupted to HOAGIES.
                 
                So now you know.

                  Sorry, I neglected to say that the Hog Island Shipyard was on the Delaware River at Philadelphia.

                    Hoagie or Sub:  In the final analysis, I don't care what it's called.  I'd just like to order the sandwich in the blasted picture!

                      In most of the areas of the country we have lived in, or passed thru, the term SUB would be the accepted identifier...(IN the PRE-SUBWAY World !!)  I do recall Grinder being used in Eastern Mass when I was in college, and Hoagie while we were in Central Jersey in the 70's, but the universal definition would be a "SUB"

                            In Highwood Illinois, north of Chicago, in teh 60s there was an amazing shop called the Hoagie Hut. the best hoagies/subs/grinders I have ever had. Found them again about ten years ago in a new location but it was a tired version of what it had been.
