Old Shoe Friends Nosh
We Noshed & Laughed
I have some of the best neighbors any ‘mo could ask for! Marc & Donna (the french fry couple) are like my building mom and dad. Whenever I need anything, I run to them, borrow a vacuum, need a ride, borrow a ladder, THEY’RE THE BEST! Then there’s Kara, she’s not pictured, but she’s just one of the sweetest women you’ll ever meet who bakes with lard!
I was hanging in the gayborhood at Cafe 12, when Donna texted, and invited me to Famous 4th Street Deli for a nosh. I jumped at the chance to hang.
We were all totally scared of the “zaftig” sandwiches. If you’ve not been – GURL – these sandwiches are stupid, ridic, insane big! Like good for 2 people to split for lunch and dinner! Check it!
Donna had a hot dog (yawn)! Marc had split pea soup (yawn)!
Kara got the most points for her order – Kreplach, soup with beef stuffed dumplings! She said it was good, i didn’t try it. Think chicken soup with big balls. ;-) Big Dumplings stuffed with beef.
I had the stuffed cabbage, my Momma made these when I was growing up, we called them Pigeons – I have no idea why! So delicious, ground beef and rice in cabbage in a red sauce.
We also ordered a side of french fries. It was ridiculous, there were so many! I only had 2! My new trainer from Optimal Sport Health Clubs would be so proud! He’d be even more proud to know that I didn’t eat the FREE chocolate chip cookie that they give free, with the check!
If you’ve not been to Famous 4th – it’s a Philly experience. Go hungry and split everything!
