Luee
We adopted Luee from the Humane Society in 1996. He was 2 years old, but still a pup. He has slowed down a bit; his age is catching up to him. He is the best dog anyone could ever have. Luee had to be put to sleep on April 15, 2009. Rest in Peace Pup.

I'm Having a DeLorenzo's Tomato Pie Meltdown

With all the talk on Macks Truck of Wisdom Blog of tomato pies, I'm still in the search here in Florida for a decent pizza. Probably the best in our area is LaForchetta and Al's. Pizza is pretty good but you have to tell them extra sauce. Down here they believe in more cheese than sauce. Man you need that crispy thin crust and sauce.

As far as Italian food, Roe and I have found that LaForchetta has good veal. Family owned from North Jersey, but we really enjoy a chain called Maggiano's. Veal Parm is excellent, good marinara sauce. They have a terrific crab cake appetizer also. So if your traveling down South try Maggiano's if located in the place you are visiting.

Maybe I should start a question and answer column for people traveling down to Florida looking for Jersey food and don't know where to go to eat. Can always call it "ASK THE PIEROGI MAN".

What a coincidence. Two days ago my wife and I were in Edgewater (Bergen Co.) NJ to take care of some business and on the trip down the NJ Turnpike back to our home in Fair Hill MD we decided to make a detour and stop off at the new DeLorenzo's in Robbinsville. My wife can verify that I've been in seventh heaven since then. Even my 29 year old son whom we visited today and who has had tomato pie only about a dozen times himself was waxing poetic about tomato ie when we mentioned where we had stopped on Wednesday. Of all the things "Trenton", tomato pie is what I miss the most! My wife is from Delaware; she doesn't understand these things.

Stephen, isn't it beautiful when you can educate someone you love into the finer things in life? With time, patience and a few more stops at DeLorenzo's, you're wife will come around. By the way, the Robbinsville DeLorenzo's is owned by Sam, Gary's son from Hudson St. Pie is a compendium flavor of Hamilton and Hudson.
