      CC - Thanks for the explanation! If I ever get to a place that actually makes a distinction between Nonna and other pizza, I'll try one for myself.  The char doesn't put me off enough to not try it.

        Artichoke Basille's recently opened a location in Berkely.


        http://www.berkeleyside.c...ichoke-basilles-pizza/

        They are Staten Island peeps....but I don't think they sound like me.


        I'll be at Una Pizza Napoletana.

          Must have been something in the water Agnes. I don't usually make a big turkey for lunch.

          Bring-on the Chinese food at Christmas!!!

              CC: Thanks for the info on Mi Quisqueya. There are so many of these type places in Urban NJ, and it's so difficult to get any real information about any particular one. It's good to know of one that comes highly recommended.
               
              I agree with your summary and assessment of Grandma Pizza. When I first became aware of the style about 5 or 6 years ago, mostly via Ed Levine's pizza book I began seeking out examples, but I quickly got frustrated because like you, I never knew what to expect and was often dissapointed. I'm mostly back to regular and Sicilian these days.
               
              Since this is the lunch thread, here's what I've had for lunch since Friday:
              Turkey.
               
              To be fair, I've had it in every permutation imaginable, but as of today, it's all gone, and I'm glad.

                    Christmas lunch, British style! Funnily enough I didn't eat anything else the rest of the day...

                      I see carrots, Brussels sprouts, sausages, what appear to be fries (or chips), mashed potatoes (?) and cranberries, but what are the rest of the items on the plate?

                          The contents of the plate are...
                           
                          Turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, chipolata sausages, sprouts, carrots, roast parsnips, roast potato, breaded stuffing ball, bread sauce and finally cranberry sauce.
                           
                          I could barely move afterwards, I sense that could be a common feeling for the next few weeks!

                            I promised to make refried beans for my children.

                            Let the journey begin...



                            Beans...please report to the pool.

                                Thank you for the response on the contents of the plate. Looks good. You know, of course, that you're not supposed to be able to move after a meal like that.

                                        L2B, I think you may get the award for a Gal that knows how to eat a burger. Nothing like a Bacon Cheese Burger with grilled onions and a beer. You have my vote, you have a good eye and palate for good food............

                                            I have that often, with peanut butter instead of the mayo.  Definitely the salt and pepper.  Nice and easy midnight snack.  I like 'em best on small dinner rolls, maybe Parker House type if I have them.

                                                Got home early from work so I made a "fancy" cheese steak. I always keep small steaks in the freezer for easy defrosting whenever anyone needs a quick meal. Right now I have a few small filet mignons in there. I defrosted one, fried up some chopped onions and then the steak to a medium rare. I then thin sliced the steak and put it on a buttered and toasted brioche roll along with the onions and some thinly sliced provolone cheese. Very delicious!! And a nice treat!

                                                      Lisa, that sausage looks wonderful.  Not so much the potato pancakes but my base of comparison is potato latkes.  Unfair comparison if I say so myself.
                                                       
                                                      I'd eat everything on that plate in a heartbeat!
                                                       
                                                      Did you use mustard?  What kind?  I can almost taste it!

                                                        The sausage is indeed wonderful.  The Bahama Mama has been on Man v Food on the Travel Channel.  It's basically a spicy brat......but it's sooooo good!  I put mustard on mine.  They have small pots of whole grain mustard on the table along with their own horseradish which has a kick.  Half-way through my sausage I added horseradish also! 
                                                        The potato pancakes come out hot and crispy.  They are just shredded potatoes with some herbs.  I lightly salted them.......perfect!
                                                        BTW, with 1/3 of my sandwich left I ditched the bread!!  If I'm going to fill up, I'd rather leave the bread than the sausage.  MH was hoping I wouldn't finish all the potatoes.  Ha!  Fat chance of that!!  I even ate his pickle!

                                                          I have for years preferred to pick up Bahama mamas from the meat counter there and take them home and grill them. The ones I've had in the restaurant have never had enough char for me. But that one looks fabulous.

                                                            It definitely had some char!  It was perfect.
