Pork Roll- Its Jerseylicious!

3 Jun

For those of you that don’t live in New Jersey, you are probably not aware of one of the best creations on earth….PORK ROLL!  I’m not even exactly sure what pork roll is.  I know that it was made some time in the 19th century by someone named John Taylor from Trenton, NJ, which is why it is also known as “Taylor Ham”.  Pork Roll is typically only found in New Jersey, which is one of the only 3 things that I actually like about New Jersey.  First thing I like about New Jersey is diners.  Second, is boardwalk food.  Third, is pork roll.  That is pretty much it 🙂

Pork Roll, Egg, Cheese, Salt, Pepper, & Ketchup on a roll….that’s the only way to do it ladies and gentleman.  It is pretty much one of my top 5 favorite things to eat for breakfast.  If you live in the area, head on over to the Woodbridge Deli.  They make some goooood ones! Visit their site http://www.woodbridgedeli.net

So, there you have it friends…if you ever visit New Jersey, be sure to have some pork roll.  If you already live in New Jersey, you should feel proud that this greasy, fattening, delicious piece of meat can’t be found anywhere else in the country.  Lucky us!

English Muffins? Who knew?

3 Apr

Never in a million years would I have thought that English muffins can be so amazing.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love the occasional Thomas English Muffin, but these English muffins are no comparison to Thomas’.  My family received a lovely Harry and David gift basket containing 2 packs of Wolferman’s Signature English Muffins.  If I wasn’t afraid of gaining 50lbs I would be eating them with every meal with the occasional snack in between!

The first thing that makes Wolferman’s Signature English Muffins so amazing is that they are about 3 inches thicker than the traditional Thomas English Muffin.  Put it this way….compared to Wolferman’s…Thomas English muffins look like they were stepped on and then run over by a mac truck.  Another thing that makes these so amazing is that they come in a variety of flavors such as San Francisco Sour Dough, Cheddar Cheese, Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Raisin, Chocolate Chip, and many other forms of deliciousness.  They even come in miniature size for those of you who like to watch your waist line.  So cute!

I did some research and found that these English muffins are not only available at Harry and David, they are also available at http://www.wolfermans.com.  You can create a custom package with a variety of flavors and even choose from an assortment of jams to compliment your muffins!  Love it!

In conclusion, I would like to thank Wolferman’s for introducing me to another piece of deliciousness to tempt me away from following my diet.
