When my husband came back east, he was so looking forward to eating an Ann's chili dog. This was the local hot doggery of his youth. All three children joined him in eating fried hot dogs. Yes, deep fried hot dogs. I am not a fan of the hot dog, so this does not sound the least appetizing to me, but they all assure me that these are very tasty.
This second photo is Lumpy sitting upon the case of pizza sauce we bought to bring home. We cannot find this brand, my husband's favorite, where we live, so when we saw it at this Italian deli, we bought a case. Don't the cookies behind him look tempting? The lady who rang up our order of sandwiches and pizza sauce gave our daughter a free cookie of her choice; wasn't that sweet?
I ate a delicious eggplant parm sub from this deli. Yummmm.....I love eggplant. Alas, my family feels toward eggplant the way I do about hot dogs. No, that is not quite true. My daughter likes both eggplant and hot dogs. She is the one you'd want to invite to dinner.
The food most associated with our home state is steamed blue crabs. The kids ate plenty of them at the beach with Grandma and Grandpa. They told me they ate crabs almost every day.
