Bento Box lunch at Asian restaurant

Lunch out with friends on day off is a welcome refresher.

I just love to eat from a Bento Box.  See the red color in side the partitions.  The selection included Teriyaki chicken strips, vegetables,  California roll.  A  soup was served prior to the Bento Box’s placed before me with chopsticks.  I prefer to use the fork.

Happy Ruby Tuesday

Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone! 

It’s time to share a photo or two with a red theme.

This is a tomato pie from DeLorenzo’s in Robbinsville, NJ. Unlike pizza, the cheese goes on first, then they add the tomato sauce on top.

Tomato Pies Beginnings:

Outside of Trenton, New Jersey, , the term Tomato Pie is little known. Utica, New York and Norristown, Pa have their own versions.
The first Tomato Pie restaurant opend in 1912 called Papa’s Tomato Pie on South Clinton Avenue, Trenton. Papa had emigratred from Naples, Italy and “the story goes that as they were making bread , they put some sliced tomatoes on it and cooked it, and that was it.”

Papa’s Tomato Pies is still around owned by his descendants, Azzaro, 62 and his son Dominic is on 804 Chambers Street.
Now, for DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies, the place that we went to. Pasquale and Maria Delorenzo emigrated from Naples to America at the turn of the century as well. The family had eight sons and four daughters in a row house on Hudson Street. In 1936, the 4 oldest son’s (Joe, Chick, Jimmy and Johnny) opened Delorenzo”s tomato Pies on the first floor of the rowhouse, then moved it to 530 Hudson Street where it is currently operating today.
In 2008, Chick’s grandson, Sam Amico, 38 opened a modern DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies in 2350 Highway 33 in suburban Robbinsville.

The fire hydrant has a cap of snow.

 

This photo is from last week’s Nor’Easter snow storm that dropped 12- 15 inches snow here.   The snowplow crew cleared the hydrant later, so more visible.

Ruby Tuesday

old Mill circa 1800's along the Millstone river

Today is Ruby Tuesday.  Please go Mary the Teach at http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com to view many photos in red.

Kingston Mill Historic District:

This place is located a short drive from my house.   After lunch with my friend last week, I decided to try out my new camera  here thinking of this historic red building, called the mill.

This place has historical  importance.

The stone bridge was rebuilt in 1798 after Continental troops in the Revolution, hoping to delay a retreat from Princeton, destroyed an earlier wooden bridge.

The red mill  was rebuilt by John and Jacop Gulick in Kingston.

Just below the bridge is a section of  the Millstone  river.  The evidence of winter is shown in the photo contrasting flowing water and frozen tree limbs.  Will post the photo later (having some trouble uploading the photos).
