Who's a Jersey Girl or Guy?

Recommended Posts

I am in northern New Jersey, specifically Bergen County. I spend a lot of time in Morristown, Hoboken and New Brunswick for work and school(s). Just wanted to see if there were any Jersey crocheters.

I'm not from New Jersey but I'll be visiting Whippany in March. Are any of you close to that? Is there anything fun to do there?

I am a Jersey Girl, born and raised in Morristown. Though I no longer live there, It is Near and Dear to my Heart. It was only really beginning to grow when I left over 10 years ago. I have'nt been back much since then.

Jersey Girl, born and raised (Sussex County).... but transplanted to Rochester, NY.

 

You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl (though my hair is much smaller these days, and NO acid washed jeans! ). We still make a pilgrimage to the shore for a week every year. :D

 

The one thing I miss most? TAYLOR HAM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pork Roll ladies, please!

Try saying "Taylor Ham" south of the Raritan Bridge and no one will know what you are talking about <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/laugh.gif" />

Holly, I'm laughing cause I didn't know what Taylor Ham was (I assumed pork roll). We get Case's Pork Roll here cause it's not as "sour" to me. I'm so far south, we have our own language!

I called Matawan (Monmouth Co.) home, but lived in Elizabeth, Perth Amboy and Toms River before moving to NC about 10 years ago. When I make trips home, I end up bringing back tons of pork roll, Sabrett hotdogs and hard rolls. I could probably finance the trip with what fellow transplants are willing to pay for the stuff we can't get down South. Anyone know if Knitters Nook is still in Red Bank? They had the most beautiful yarn I've ever seen, even when I was a kid and only into needlepoint and embroidery.

Deneen, that's funny <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/laugh.gif" /> Down where you are, you guys might as well secede and be a colony of Philly <img border=0 src="http://img28.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/boxing_2.gif" />

 

I didn't know what Taylor Ham was until I met my best friend who originally was from North Jersey. We were at the store one day, the lady in front of us was asking for Taylor Ham and the clerk was totally perplexed. Denise leaned over and said "She's looking for Pork Roll"

 

Kathy, have you ever asked your grocery store manager to order those brands? Some stores will do that, and maybe you'll start a new food trend <img border=0 src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/drool4.gif" /> The Knitter's Knook is long gone unfortunatly. Last year a new yarn store opened in Red Bank, I'm not too impressed though. She only carries ultra expensive yarn and I've heard from a lot of people she can be not so customer friendly. I don't expect a LYS to carry things like Red Heart and Lion Brand, but there are "nice" yarns out there that are on the lower end of the price scale that make a nice ballance.

I'm a Joisey girl, too! I live in Tucson, AZ, now, but still think of myself as a Joisey girl. My mom and sisters are all still back there. We're in the Blloomingdale-Bloomfield-Clifton-Montclair area, with cousins all over the place. Summers down at Seaside Heights, of course. My aunt has traced our family in NJ back to when it was part of New Amsterdam!

 

And it's Taylor ham! I'd kill for a portugese roll out here.

Wow a lot of Jersey girls. I grew up in Morris county. I still have relatives there and mom still lives in the family house. Like most I must agree even when you move to another state they can't take the Jersey outta you!

Bergen/Hudson County over here. I must admit it took many years and going across the country to learn that taylor ham existed much less that it was a Jersey thing.

Tinton Falls, Monmouth County here. I grew up in NY and never realized that Taylor Ham was the same thing as Pork Roll.

You girls talking about Pork roll makes me want to run out and buy some.

 

 

Can get that here, but not a decent TOMATO. I have to hope someone comes down in September when they are out, or that my sister will be kind enough to send me some.

 

I would give my right arm, well maybe the left for a beacon, lettuce and Jersey tomato sandwich on wonderbread.:tup
