Tomorrow (Sunday), I will have the family over to celebrate Adam's 21st Birthday. Have been busy shopping and cooking all day. Come along on my errands and see some of my favorite South Philly haunts (now that I have a new camera and figured out how to upload pictures, I'll do more on my neighborhood).
Wasn't a great start. Got stuck behind an Oil Truck making a delivery and had to turn down this very tiny street!
Next stop was Sarcones Bakery to pick up Breadcrumbs and order rolls for tomorrow. This has been a family business for 60+ years. We could (and have) made a meal of their long seeded loaf of crunchy Italian Bread with Mauro's Olive Oil.
Off to Passyunk Market to buy meat and home made roasted peppers for a dip (recipe from ST - name escapes me)
Next stop is Primo's Hoagies to order Hoagies - 2 Italian, 2 Veggies & 2 Turkey(for the "Medicans" - So Philly speak for non Italians)
Last stop was the famous Melrose Diner ("Everyone who knows, goes to Melrose") to order their well known, Butter Cream Birthday Cake.
Finally back home to put up the pot of So. Philly style Gravy with meatballs and sausage (every so philly woman has a secret meatball recipe, and everyone's mom makes the "best" meatballs)
Finally, back home to put up the pot of Gravy with Meatballs and Sausage to serve tomorrow!
