Oh, Jersey. You don’t represent yourself well. Look at the MTV show Jersey Shore.
I hate that show. It is most offensive because I am Italian, born and raised. My great-grandfather Silvio immigrated in the early 1900s to pave a better life. And then these … people (for lack of a better word) disgrace the ethnicity.
I also grew up with the joke, “Let’s bomb Jersey and give Pa. a beach.” LOL. (Sorry to all those from New Jersey.)
I will say this, though, they know how to do french fries (and apparently tanning and clubbing.)
When I saw the words “disco fries” on my list, I was intrigued. I LOVE fries. No, I L-O-V-E fries. I loved getting cheese fries when I was younger, and I bet I would still love them now. And I have never had gravy fries, let alone CHEESE, gravy fries!

Projects get out of hand, time slips away. This has been my life since I posted the original 50 States, 50 Vegan Dishes post!
I have started farming again, thinking about decluttering my apartment, hosting a yard sale, among so many other things.
But I DID start the project, and it was with Virginia: Brunswick Stew.
This was in honor of my three-year anniversary trip to Damascus, Virginia, at the beginning of May. You can read all about that adventure here.
When I did an online search for recipes to veganize, I was confronted with a problem: Both Virginia and Georgia claim they were the creators of the stew. You can read about the history at this Wikipedia page.
The main difference I concluded was the Virginia variety was more tomato-based and was more soup-like. Also, they prefer chicken (also rabbit. ew. ) Also, there are a variety of vegetables each person says to put in, weather it is succotash, lima beans, okra, potatoes and corn, to name a few.
