Best diners in NJ

If I'm not mistaken, the Arena was once known, many years ago, as Charcoal Corners...if any of the older CH'ers remember that.

Where are the Northern Jerseyans?

Been there a few times over the years. Decor hardly ever changes...neither does the help. Can't say anything about how food is recently, but I look forward to going back. Always had a pleasant experience there.

Best canned soups?

As a rule, I'll stick with MOST Progresso varieties as national brands go. Some of the smaller, lesser known ones are pretty good, but with so many to choose from it's hit and miss.

Shrimp on pizza, yes or no?

Not on traditional red-sauce pies for me. I consider myself somewhat of a purist when it comes to pizza, but I make a pie using a pre-made base (can't think of the brand name...plastic wrapped...two to a package). lightly oil and crisp in the oven. Meanwhile, saute scallions in butter, when soft add cleaned/tail-less shrimp, add a bit of white wine and seasoning to taste. When shrimp are done, pour shrimp and scallions onto base evenly, shred mozzorella on top, then into the oven to melt cheese.

Fusilli you crazy bastard

As the pasta that's talking is of the straight variety, his friend, Fusilli, is a "cork-screw" shape...hence the reference to being a "crazy bastard."

Olive and Cream Cheese Sandwiches a Baltimore Only Treat?

Amen to all of them! Especially GOOD head cheese, with mustard and coarse ground pepper on rye. People at my lunch table would turn green at the thought, but I loved them all. I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.

Grubhub.com in Hartford CT

I just started a new job in downtown Hartford and was wondering if any local CHers have had any experience with Grubhub delivery in town? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

How do YOU make a meatloaf sandwich?

JOOC...with all that on top, can you even taste the meat? Maybe with an extra thick slice, but I would think the actual meat taste would get lost in all that.

Had it often at AOC School (same one Richard Gere went to in Officer and a Gentleman...but in Pensacola). I think we liked it because we were pushed to our limits and ANYTHING would taste good.

Ribs: Dry Rub vs Marinade...What say you?

Prefer dry rub. Sauce masks the flavor of the meat TOO much. If I want sauce, I'll have it on the side to dip.

If you opened a restaurant, what would you call it ?

"Leftovers"...serve only those things that are better the second day.

What's the Hottest Pepper that You Cook With

Jalapeno, but I remove seeds and pith. Looking for the pepper flavor, not all the heat.

Thomas's English Muffins

Pay attention to the ones you're buying...There are a few...whole grain, whole wheat, original, etc. Also, I've always thought the "fork split" meant that they already stabbed the sides with a fork...I always use a knife to actually split them.
