LOL Yeah, it was the guy with the chubby hands! Funny but the first thing I noticed was the dimples in his knuckles, and the camera was focused on his hands the whole time. I was glad I watched the video to see exactly how it was done. I was surprised at how easy the dough was to make. He made a very good video.

In case we're making anyone curious, here's the video.

Thanks Frank.
I never had the real deal, but I saw it once on a food show, probably one of those hour long shows featuring one kind of food from different well known places, and knew I had to make one someday. I may even attempt ATK's version with the butter in the dough, which is supposed to be a good replication for Giordanos buttery and flaky crust.

That's the one, Carol. I liked the way he walked you right through everything and it was as simple as he said/showed. I found lots of recipes for the Giordanos crust on a pizza forum, but you start measuring flour and oil in decimals and that's too much finesse for me. Not when this guy makes it look so easy. So easy I could do it anyway.

Week 16 had my Browns playing the Jets. The "New York" Jets. And where are the NY Jets from? Joisey. East Rutherford, New Jersey to be exact.
So off I went in search of foods NJ is known for.
The New Jersey Italian hot dog and New Jersey disco fries (stayin' alive, stayin' alive). Filling food to say the least.

Thanks, Fi
And there are potatoes in there. Good eye.
I've used this filling/relish before with brats and it's great. This is the first time making the official version with hot dogs. I've got anough leftovers to make another one AND scramble with some eggs

I have a large deep sauté pan and make an Italian frittata in it for the whole family. Peppers, onions, potatoes, diced salami, Italian seasoning, S&P and about a dozen eggs. I have a large pizza pan and send it up to my daughter's house on that. A short trip to the oven to warm it up, and they have enough for two meals. My grandson loves frittatas. Even cold the next day. But mostly Grandma's.

I need to know how to brine and roast an Eagle. My Cowboys play those dreaded evil awful birds next Sunday night to determine who wins our division.

Just to let you non-football folks how deep my hatred for the Eagles and their fans is...several years ago, our star receiver received a potentially paralyzing neck injury, and their fans Boo'ed him! In the 60's they Boo'ed Santa Claus!!!
