With the fast
pace of our everyday lives, most of us find we have a need to visit an eatery
that provides take-out food. More often than not, the choices vary
little, pretty good food - kind of boring. If you are tired of the
"same old - same old" - then you should visit David
Alan's Market Place in East Hanover.
Located on an off-shoot road between westbound Route 10 and southbound
Ridgedale Avenue, David Alan's has the feel of an old-time country store.
As you look around, you're immediately struck by how fresh all of the food
looks. It's clear from all of the activity that nothing sits around
too long. Nor do the customers - there is plenty of staff and they're
The sandwiches are large and varied. Although you can order your
favorite standard sandwich if you like, some interesting twists make for
fare that is off the beaten path. The delicious "Midtown"
for $6.95 offers fresh (and I do mean fresh) mozzarella, roasted peppers,
mesclun, arugula dressing on French bread. Another
interesting and quite tasty sandwich is the "Empire State" for
$7.95 which is a balsamic London broil, grilled onions and horseradish cream
on an onion roll. For the salad lovers there is a mouth-watering on
called simply "Fresh Mesclun" for $6.95. This dish includes
sun dried cranberries, mandarin oranges, caramelized pecans and crumpled bleu
taste buds are yearning for, it's a pretty sure bet that you will find it at
David Alan's Market Place. For those who would rather not take their
food with them, there is an area toward the rear of the store (away from the
hubbub) where you can be seated at comfortable tables. Eat-in or take-out, this is a place to

Harvest In New
Everyone in New
Jersey is most certainly looking forward to the month of October and all
it's pretty colors. October is a bountiful Jersey Treasure with the
fall harvest underway. Our diverse landscape is home to more than just
high-tech companies, sporting venues and architecture; it's still home even
today to rich fertile farmland. With open space laws in place and
communities setting aside working farms, we will most assuredly be able to
enjoy the fall harvest here in New Jersey for many years to come.
Many farms have
gone a step further as times have changed by creating an environment where
people can come in and pick-there-own fruits, vegetables and pumpkins.
Many of these types of progressive farms offer hay rides as well. It
may be a sign of the economic times as working farms strive to maximize the
most expensive acreage in the US, but this evolution for the New Jersey
farmer has created a wonderful treasure of education, adventure and
The fall here in New Jersey offers some very pretty jersey drives and what
better stop on one of these cool crisp days then a trip with the family to
pick your own pumpkins and whatever else is in season. Getting off our
busy highways even for just a little while will most certainly relax the
most stressed out as you get back to nature if only for a few hours.
