A meatball wedge, meatball hero and a meatball sub are identical to the eye. Of course, tastebuds put all of these sandwiches to the real test! Hmmm... I hadn't gotten around to giving any thought to the origins of the "wedge" name. Perhaps wedges (particularly the meatball variety) once w...

I'd like to chime in with an amateurish theory to explain why midwesterners are calling their MID-DAY meal dinner. It's a stretch, but hear me out on this one... Many midwestern settlers were of Scandinavian (mostly Swedish) origin. Now, many moons ago (and currently in Swedish nursing homes) the LA...

Found some more wedges, folks. The Lakeland School District (Weschester Co.?) serves 'em up. *NEWS FLASH * Evidently, wedges have crossed the border into Fairfield County, CT as I found them on restaurant menus in Norwalk and Stamford, CT as well. Thanks to all who have gone IN SEARCH OF wedges with...

Ever hear of vodka on the rocks Finnish style? Yep, splash those stones with some FINLANDIA and breathe.... So much for cleansing the body of all impurities! With family traditions like that, it's a miracle I was ever born.

If you ask all of the snobs headed to the local club or gym...it's "saw-nuh". Ask a gal who has a little SISU in her...it's "sow-eh-nuh". I also know that it is more important to carry along a few birch sprigs than to remember your towel. To each her own.

Alrighty then... Wedges can be found 30-40 miles NNE of NYC somewhere off of the Saw Mill River Parkway or I684. Or...or...or...wait a minute! Maybe they're not calling them wedges anymore! Maybe the word "wedge" went out with Keds, Lisa Frank stickers and the RUBIK'S CUBE. Just went to my...

Wedge to wedgie...

Ah! So it's time for fanny humor! Or is that potty humor, bathroom talk, butt jokes or crack cracks ? (just made that last one up all by my little self). Wonder what the "experts" think. You know, my parents spoke Swedish as their first language and often inverted the letters W and V. (ex....

Has anyone out there ever heard of a 6 foot wedge?

Passed(?) the Rebel-Yankee test today. But I was perplexed by the "big sandwich" question. In Westchester County, NY outside of NYC we called those long loaves filled with processed meats and cheeses "wedges". Wedges came in a variety of sizes ranging from single portions (6 inch...
