Cheese Steaks and Pork Roll
That's what we Jersey Girls say.
Drip Dry and I went to a wedding yesterday in Asbury Park. I guess you might call it a destination wedding because whenever we travel to "The Shore" we get off the parkway at exit 25, of course. So imagine our excitement in exiting the parkway at exit 102.
I believe I had only been to Asbury Park once before in my life. I don't remember why, but it had nothing to do with Bruce Springsteen, and certainly had nothing to do with a wedding but, of course, this trip did. And boy did they Jersey it up.
A flute of champagne up arrival. A lovely (and brief) wedding ceremony in a beautiful room. A quick sprint into the cocktail hour to nab one of the few cocktail tables with a chair for me to sit it.
And then it began. The food.
Cheese steak, waffle fries, perogies, kielbasa, short rib sliders, grilled cheese, penne, filet, shrimp, crab, canoli, fried dough, cupcake, and ice cream; all topped off with the best of all Jersey inventions - pork roll and cheese sandwiches to go!
You gotta love New Jersey!
