State of New Jersey Dinner

Submarine sandwiches
Marinated tomatoes and red onion
Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist
Saltwater taffy

Hoagies, or submarines, are a popular food in all the mid-Atlantic states. The fresh tomatoes and onions (plus the veggies on the sandwich) are representative of the nickname The Garden State. I would have added cucumbers but forgot to pick some up at the store. I simply tossed the vegetables with Italian dressing. Saltwater taffy originated in a candy shop on the Jersey Shore. I chose Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist because it seemed like a summertime, seaside treat. Cranberries are grown in the northeast.
