Howard’s Cafe, Patchogue, NY

Some friends and I took a trip out to Long Island this weekend for a brewery/winery tour. While we planned out where we would be drinking, we left our eating options to chance. Along the way, we found a number of little local gems, like Howard’s Cafe in Patchogue…

Located in a strip mall near Blue Point Brewing Co., Howard’s is a quaint cafe with a long burger list, house special sandwiches, and a few seafood and pasta options. I went with one of those house specials, Howard’s roast pork sandwich…

Served on garlic bread with melted mozzarella and au jus, I picked a winner!

The sesame hero roll was freshly-baked, flaky on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the juicy pork had been lightly fried to crisp it up just a bit, and the garlic made each bite pop.

And here’s the other thing about Howard’s, every single one of their burgers, sandwiches and entrees come with a bowl of salad, a side of your choice (I got the house made steak fries) and a pitcher of Bud or Bud Light or carafe of house wine! And they kept refilling our pitchers!!

All this for just thirteen bucks!

No wonder this place was packed!!

Happy Birthday Jeff!


She knew he didn’t want a big party, just something family oriented and wonderful, something bursting with love. He had a couple days off from TWD and they decided to go home and take a small breather and see the ‘babies’. It just happened that they had a minute free where she could give him his birthday in his own home.

His close friends were obviously invited, and she even took time to invite Hilarie, for even though she knew Hilarie was trying to destroy their relationship she wanted to do the right thing and not write her out of family events. She didn’t order him a cake, she baked one, starting at five am, she created a large tiered cake, and set up the back yard for the party. It was going to be a nice spring day but even if it wasn’t she’d gotten large tents over the tables to protect everyone. The food was a barbecue. She’d gotten a roast pig, pulled pork sandwiches, bratwursts, hotdogs, and hamburgers. She made a variety of salads, from greens to pasta to fruits, she made fries, cheesy hashbrown cassarole, potatoes au gratin, and so many other things in big silver pants. And the desserts… cake alone? no, cream puffs, cannoli, chocolate mousse, and his favorite cookies.

Her gifts for him, and gifts from Gus were wrapped up and stacked under their own tent on a table. Now with all that done she was making him breakfast. Sausage, Bacon, Hashbrowns, chocolate chip pancakes, and scrambled eggs with peppers, mushrooms, cheese, and chives. She made him his favorite coffee, and juice and carried it all up on a tray to wake him up. She was too excited to be tired. She leaned over his sleeping form and kissed his cheek.

DiNic's, Philadelphia

DiNic’s is one restaurant I NEVER miss on any trip to Philadelphia…

Their pulled pork sandwich is the best on the planet!

And just to be clear… their PULLED pork. Not their roast pork.

Their roast pork is great, believe me, as I’ve eaten it many times when they’ve sold out of the pulled pork. Which they do. Quickly.

But you just can’t beat the pulled pork. With sharp provolone and hot peppers.

And I was thrilled that I got there early enough yesterday to find they still had some left! Here’s a look…

Maybe not just the best PULLED PORK sandwich on the planet.

Maybe the SANDWICH on the planet!

Yes, you guessed it - it’s Sunday, time to review.

This week I made Baguettes, yes baguettes. I made bread with yeast and rising time and everything and they were delicious. I even tucked one in the freezer for future use. Next a batch of Pork and Kimchi Pot Stickers, still working out the kinks on the recipe but still quite tasty and also froze some for later, some Cauliflower and Broccoli Flan with Spinach Béchamel, which went great with a grilled bone in rib eye, the following day with some leftovers a scrumptious Steak Sandwich with Swiss cheese, red onion and light mayo on a home made baguette, then to get us through the weekend a big pan of Roast Vegetable Lasagna, which half will also be going into the freezer and finally for breakfast a Greek Omelet.

All this made for quite a delectable week. Now with my freezer restocked I am off to make plans for another week of food and hopefully some fun.

What will you be making?
