That looks great Chris!

Ken...Thanks for mentioning Abbate Bakery. I've never been (but read good things) & will put them on the list for a visit a few weeks from now when I'm back in Matawan.

The bagel place within Aberdeen Town Square is Eli's Hot Bagels....




I had a nice bagel from Eli's last week...



I was in Matawan during/after Hurricane Irene without power for 5 days & I can attest that Eli's also makes fantastic bagel chips with the bagels...and sells them in gigantic bags. Eli's was one of the few places open during those days.

The sub place is D.A. Subs. It's directly across from the Ice Cream Palace in a small strip mall. It looks like this...



Very large sub menu...



They also make great breakfast sandwiches. So does Bagel Time on Rt. 79.

I love Denino's. When I was young & before pizza could be found everywhere Denino's on Staten Island was one of the closest to home local pizza. I've had a few birthday parties @ Denino's & a lifetime of great memories.

They serve outstanding pizza. Great calamari & garlic knots as well...

Wow, pictures too! Thanks for the sub place info CC.
 
Yes, Eli's was the bagel place I was thinking of (thanks for the pic), I just wasn't sure it was in that shopping center or nearby. I've been to the SI and Matawan Denino's several times, but I don't think I've ever had anything but pizza there. It's like Nathan's Coney Island in that respect. Nathans for Hot Dogs and Fries, Denino's for Pizza. But the Calamari and garlic knots look dam good!

That bagel looks amazing.  If I could get something even close to that out here, it'd be my breakfast today.  Wahhhhh

Bagels are one of the things I really miss when in Cali. I tried a few times...but didn't share those attempts.

Here's a few slices of Denino's pizza...



It's usually ranked highly on most "best pizza in NYC" lists...and rightfully so.

They also serve great Buffalo wings (so I'm told) on Staten Island. It's much too dark there to get a pic without flash...and I would not use flash there. Ever.

10/9 was (Italian) Sub Day so I celebrated in my hood with a Benanti's sub. Benanti's was voted Best Italian Sub in North Jersey by NJ.com & we'll gladly accept the honor...

http://www.nj.com/inside-...fight_subshoagies.html

Benanti's is old-school. Nothing has changed thankfully over the years...



Always busy...some would describe it as chaos but I know no different so whatever...



As soon as the crowd is aware that this is a mission to share Benanti's with the world they're all-in...



Everyone gathers around to watch my sandwich being made while they wonder why it's so large compared to their sandwiches. It's good to be CCinNJ. Everyone rolls their eyes & laughs at that @ Benanti's...




The entire store also gathered around outside (good sports in this hood) while I took a picture of the expertly-tailored Benanti's sandwich...



It magically stays perfect for hours. It's so large one side is ready to tip-over but that's my doing for not paying attention...

I just ate a similar sandwich (no turkey) but I think my roll was softer.

Oh, if only I could get bread like that here in Ohio. Are you sure that bread didn't come from Connecticut?

I tried to have something similar for dinner but I'm sure the quality paled in comparison...

That's <<<Hoboken>>> bread!

Ciro Benanti is one of the very few peeps that makes Scamorza Bianca in this area. I'll have to ask how much he sells compared to the fresh mozzarella. He makes 3 a hundred lbs of fresh mozzarella & 12 a hundred meatballs weekly.

L2B if I could bake cookies like you...I'd have them for dinner every night.

At the place where I work, we have a tradition of ordering take-out every other Thursday, the day before payday. In recent years we have been ordering Peruvian-style chicken from: http://elpolloricorestaurant.com/. Just finished sittin-down to a quarter chicken (white meat) , fries & slaw. Think I need to take a stroll around the plaza to walk it off....:)

I celebrated Yorkshire Pudding Day a little late (better that than never) & used a recipe that my Gradmother wrote in her own very unique language...



I adopted all of them for lunch.

Ooooohhweeeeee those look fantastic.
 
I've never checked to compare, but they look a whole lot like popovers, too.  And Dutch babies, for that matter.  All good eats!!

Back in the old UK days Yorkshire Pudding was often a dish served when an actual roast to follow wasn't a given...but the drippings from a previous roast were available to use for a somewhat beefy/meaty lunch without the beef...or a prelude to the roast.

These days Yorkshire Pudding recipes seem very similar to the American popover recipes.

The old-school version is delicious. Not as much pop as a popover but nice deep rich flavor.

CC - This picture reminded me of my favorite "food" poem
 

 
"The Walrus and The Carpenter" By Lewis Carroll
 
"The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright--
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done--
"It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead--
There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
"If this were only cleared away,"
They said, "it would be grand!"

"If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

"O Oysters, come and walk with us!"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each."

The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head--
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.

But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat--
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
And more, and more, and more--
All hopping through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried,
"Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

"A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed--
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."

"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said.
"Do you admire the view?

"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf--
I've had to ask you twice!"

"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"

"I weep for you," the Walrus said:
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none--
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one."

 
They look delicious and would go good on a cool and dreary day here in Indiana.

CC I found some nice prime rib at a local grocery store on sale. So tomorrow our Sunday dinner will be Prime Rib with Yorkshire Puddings (cooked in the popover pan I received for Christmas), Bordelaise Sauce, Mashed Potatoes and a vegetable of which has not been decided upon yet. I'll try to remember to post pictures! I love Yorkshire Pudding! I usually have to make two batches to satisfy everyone's craving!!

CK - I remember that poem!!  I still "hear" it in the voice I originally heard it:  Cyril Ritchard, who narrated this and several other writings on an album called "Nonsense Verse of Carroll and Lear."

Oy Oysters what a pity...but comes as no surprise.

A happy fun-filled journey...a swift Roadfood demise.

You woulda been safe with me...Oystahs.

Since I'm making a prime rib dinner for today I'm having a light lunch. Some cheese (Chaumes, Pecorino & Maytag Blue), Pate de Campagne, prosciutto, olives and some of the last cherry tomatoes from my garden. I honestly could make these things a main meal for myself! I'd maybe add a nice hunk of French bread.

No kidding, Agnes!  Sounds lovely.  So does dinner, for that matter.
 
I'm making smoked salmon for lunch today, once again so grateful to RF for the "Miscellaneous" threads, without which I'd never have known about these stove top smokers.
 
Thank you!!!

Nice lunch Agnes!

I was away from NJ this summer so the last of my cherry tomatoes are the first of the season...for me.

I have a roast crockin' in the pot. I forgot about the parade today in front of my house...so I'm sorta held hostage to that this afternoon.
