A Study In Contrasts..Cannoli vs. Mayonnaise Sandwich

Here Izzy's friend T., contemplates a cannoli from Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken. I brought over a box to share as a treat after helping them to pack up and leave Jersey City (boohoo, sniff). She eyes it suspiciously, then takes a bite and a look of pain washes over her face.

What would she prefer instead? A mayonnaise sandwich of course. Something she request for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Note the look of glee upon her face at the prospect of eating her beloved food. Don't you think it is time her mom pulled a "Bread and Jam For Frances" maneuver on her?

p.s. Izzy and I cannot fathom a distaste for cannoli and we proceed to eat two and a half of them, each.

A mayonaisse sandwich? Maybe with a little bacon. Otherwise, not so much. :)

Did you know that this bakery is featured on the show "Cake Boss?" Incredible to see the kinds of cakes they produce!
