Just finished off a twix candy bar and 12 fruit and vanilla flavored tootsie rolls.
 
you take a vanilla tootsie roll and an orange one and eat them together it is like you are eating a dreamsicle.

    Don, you know how to eat Tootsie Rolls!  Try the regular chocolate with the orange.  Great combo.

      As part of my daughter Katie's birthday gift we had lunch today at Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater, NJ. We can never get enough of the ramen soup from the food court along with a tasty side of pork cheeks.

      Did I mention the pork cheeks?

      My daughter enjoying her ramen!

      We then shopped for dinner to bring home.

        Happy Birthday Katie!

        I'll have to remember this place...in Edgewater. It looks excellent!

            Yes, slices of jowl they braise until melt in your mouth tender then they put a very subtle, light soy sauce glaze on them. You can eat them as is or dip them in your soup (which is what we do). They are little slices of heaven!

              Italians call pork cheeks guanciale.

                      It was a delicious pie, but once I smelled the truffle oil on the mushroom pizza at the table next to me, I kinda wanted to trade.

                        Little cheeseburgers at Five Guys in Rio Grande NJ with Ms OC.  Boy were they good!  The fries were great also (with malt vinegar)  But there was 3x the amount we could eat.

                            Ooooh...that waffle looks sinfully good. I have to look away now.

                            I think I'm making Dosai but if it's not made yet...it's for Dinner.

                              I'll admit to medicating with food today.
                               
                              Dosai!!  Cool.  Hope to see them on the dinner page.

                                <<we had lunch today at Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater, NJ>>
                                 
                                Interesting, my wife and I were up near there today and although we had been there about maybe 10 years ago, we couldn't remember the name of it. Or did it used to be called something else? Mitsuwa doesn't sound familiar, although looking at the picture on thier website, I'm sure that's where we had been.
                                 
                                Anyway, our trip was to this place:
                                http://jerryshomemade.com/
                                 
                                Fabulous! $123  later, we have enough food & wine for the weekend and way beyond.  Prices are way beyond reasonable for such good quality stuff. Lunch was 2 of thier excellent subs.
                                 
                                And if that wasn't enough, this was just a couple of blocks up the same street:

                                Oooh, oooh!

                                  The Dosai are easy. Gits makes fantastic mixes (the Kulfi mix is soooo good) . I just forgot to stop for eggplant...and it's so hard to make eggplant curry without it.

                                    Finally, after months of craving, we made it to Skyline for lunch today. lleechef doesn't care for such things as three-ways, four-ways or five-ways, so she had a plain coney with mustard and the  Cincinnati-style chili, plus a Pepsi. I ordered a large four-way with onions, and some sweet tea. I was disappointed because somehow the four-way didn't taste as I remembered. There was just something a little off. I'll go back again, figuring that it was me not the food.

                                      Mmmmm... I so want to try Skyline!  I've been making copycat recipes for years and love it, but the real thing is on my bucket list.
                                       
                                      I ended up in the Mission District of SF today and did some damage.  I was meeting a friend for pizza, but got there very early so I went to Bi-Rite Creamery and got a scoop of salted caramel ice cream.  I also stopped at Tartine Bakery and picked up some baked goods, which I still haven't tried yet.  I'll post them on the dessert page when I do.  But for lunch we went to Pizzeria Delfina, well loved in this city, and it was easy to see why.  We got meatballs and a margherita pizza.  Please forgive me--I snagged these two pics off Yelp (my bad), but they look exactly like what we got.  If this isn't kosher for me to do, someone please tell me, and I'll delete them.

                                          My niece had a cup of coffee...



                                          and a chicken salad...



                                          J's Place is an outstanding Soul Food/BBQ restaurant in Bakersfield California....with great servers that are very fun. It's a busy place...




                                          I didn't ask what they were having.

                                            Cool that your niece found something healthy there!  It's not quite their specialty at J's Place.

                                              She loved the chicken salad....and adores the caramel cake as well.

                                              Our waitress told us that the peach cobbler is also quite divine.

                                                Those neck bones look great, exactly what I'd like to have for lunch today. No place close by to get them though, so I'm getting some ribs and half a smoked chicken with chili and collard greens instead. If I can refrain from eating the whole thing at lunch, it'll be dinner as well!

                                                  Last week I had lunch at In-N-Out in Santa Clarita...

                                                  The big sign in the sky...



                                                  I don't eat many hamburgers but I'm a fan of In-N-Out...



                                                  People sometimes complain about the French fries but we played guess where I'm from? while the fries are "fryin' hard" enough. Brooklyn? For reals? No! The altitude musta flattened my hair. New Jersey? Ding ding ding!

                                                  Perfect!


                                                  A Strawnilla milkshake...







                                                  I got stickers as my parting gift...



                                                  And the cutest little peppers that tried to kill me...

                                                    CC!  Those peppers do kill.  Glad you survived.
                                                    They've been trying to kill me for years. 
                                                     
                                                    Interesting that they "expire" in June.
                                                     
                                                    I've been trying to avoid lunch so I've also been avoiding this thread.  Seeing a CC post brought me in.
                                                     
                                                    Now I'm hungry.
                                                     
                                                    Neck bones?  Really?  I made them once with lots of garlic and rosemary.  They've not been requested since.

                                                      Those babies look like mild little peperoncini. Holy smoke!!

                                                      I had a preview of the neck bones last week when I ordered a side of neck bone dressing...



                                                      Mmmmm...they make 'em so good. Too good!

                                                      I need a kayak. No water for miles will make the workout tougher!

                                                        I had my very "special" later than usual Shamrock Shake...



                                                        I have ways...

                                                          heh heh
                                                           
                                                          We're close to water.  The kayak weighs 65 pounds.  Getting it from the SUV to the water which might be 20 yards ruins the moment.
                                                           
                                                          Taking it back to the SUV after it's been in the water ruins the day.
                                                           
                                                          I'm working on modifying my homemade cart so it works.
