Jersey’s Thursdays: Vegetarian Reuben & Spinach Eggplant Panino

This week we decided to go vegetarian! Of course, just because it’s vegetarian doesn’t mean it’s healthy. These sandwiches are still massive and manage to pack in the calories. For our study, we chose the Vegetarian Reuben and the Spinach Eggplant Panino. (Panino is the singular of panini) Let’s get started…

Jersey’s Thursdays: Wildwood Cheesesteak & Red Sox Suck Chicken Cheesesteak

Yeah yeah, I know, I said we were going to probably do only one sandwich per week, but these week I missed breakfast so we went for two smaller ones. Not that this week’s sandwiches are small or anything, but compared to last week’s massive hoagie, most sandwiches are.

Jersey’s Thursdays: Atlantic City Expressway Hot Hoagie

Last week’s eating of two of Jersey’s largest sandwiches was a rough. I spent the rest of the day not moving around very much. Many of you know I’m on an 1,800 calorie/day diet (I’ve lost over 45 pounds!), so on Thursdays, I have to be very sparse with my other meals, if I have […]

Jersey’s Thursdays: Delaware Water Gap Nonie & Cheese My Baby

For the inaugural edition of Jersey’s Thursdays, Sherrel and I decided to tackle the Delware Water Gap Nonie and the Cheese My Baby. Tackling both of these sandwiches at the same time was definitely a mistake but wow, it was delicious. In the future, we’ll likely be splitting just one sandwich. Anyway, without further ado, […]

Jersey’s Café & Jersey’s Thursdays

Jersey’s Café in Carmel is one of Indy’s best kept secrets. (not to be confused with Jersey Mike’s, a chain by a similar name but lesser quality) They have an absolutely exhaustive menu (seen below) with over 100 sandwiches to choose from. So far I’ve eaten there five times, getting something different each time, and […]

Hero Blackberry Vanilla Spread

Some of you may know that I’m a sucker for pretty much all things vanilla. I’m also fond of the darker berries such as raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. (of course, gooseberries are still my favorite! (and I’m not sure if black currants count as berries)) But anyway, you may also know that I’ve pretty much […]

Since when is “Liquid” an ingredient?

I found this packet of dipping sauce at work and walked back to my desk with it. On the way, something odd caught my eye. Aside from the partially hydrogenated soybean oil being the second ingredient, the first ingredient is “liquid.” Seriously. “Liquid.” Could you be any more vague than that? I suppose “liquid” is […]

Nona Instant Ginger Milk Tea

So I like to try new things, especially teas. I’m a big fan of Kirin’s Royal Milk Tea (especially the double strength special kind) and I figured I’d give this stuff a shot. I picked it up at Saraga, a local international grocery store.
