Cape May, N.J.'s, train depot isn't quite as busy as it once was. The historic station still displays an old engine, and the old station house is now mostly used as a bus station and visitors center. But Cape May's Depot Market Caf?, located just a few steps from the depot, is another story. The quaint little restaurant and takeout stand draws crowds at lunch and dinner, especially during the summer. The cafe menu features big Caesar salads and full-course dinners. One favorite combination is the cafe's grilled chicken sandwich.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be going back to school this week. Watching the little ones with their SpongeBob backpacks and No. 2 pencils get on yellow buses, we adults pine for the simple pleasures of the new school year. One of my fondest back-to-school memories: opening my Ziggy lunch box to find a sandwich, an apple, juice, a cookie - and a note from Mom written on a napkin. Once in a while, my mother would pack an extra-special treat: a half sandwich from our neighborhood deli.

ANY TIME cheese and half-and-half are key ingredients in a recipe, you can count on plenty of calories and fat grams - even with vegetables in the mix. That was the case with a copycat version of T.G.I. Friday's broccoli cheese soup I found on RecipeZaar.com. One cup contains 269 calories and 16.7 fat grams. Eating a small order of McDonald's french fries instead would save you 39 calories and 5.7 fat grams. I wanted a slimmer soup, so I poured in 2 percent milk to replace some of the chicken broth and the half-and-half.

If there is a home game, they will come. Before any Nittany Lion football game, waves of Winnebagos pour into State College, ultimately settling into the parking lot at Beaver Stadium. The town's population quadruples and, as a veteran sports columnist puts it, it's kind of like the entire county showing up for a picnic. And picnic they do. If a football game in State College is part of your plans this fall, you might like to call ahead and arrange for some tailgate fare from the locals who know how to do it right.

The Camden County Red Cross will distribute government surplus rice and cheese tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at municipal buildings and community centers throughout the county. The next distribution will be in September. Each household will receive 4 pounds of rice and 5 pounds of cheese. The food will be given only to those who have Red Cross food registration cards. Food distributions take place every three months. "Last time around, we had an enormous amount left over," said Camy Trinidad, Camden County Red Cross director of public information.

Dear Polly: Can you tell me how I can age processed American cheese to give it a stronger flavor? - O.C. Dear O.C.: Unfortunately, there's no way to age processed cheese. The processing it undergoes stabilizes the product and removes the microorganisms that age natural cheese. However, if you're cooking with processed cheese - for example, using it in a cheese sauce or spread - you can zip up the flavor a bit by adding a little mustard or a pinch of red pepper to the recipe.

The marriage of two of Philadelphia's favorite foodstuffs was celebrated today with a lunchtime giveaway at Love Park. Meet the Cheesesteak Pretzel: a handheld cheesesteak baked inside soft-pretzel dough. More than 700 were handed out, to mostly positive reviews. "This stuff is good," said Jermaine Bernard, 33, finishing his first while in line to get a second. The visitor from Los Angeles hoped to try for a third as well. "Not two thumbs up, but one thumb up," said actuary Derek Eyler, 25, of Abington.

I should have become suspicious when I looked in the window and saw all the ferns hanging from the ceiling and walls in the bar section of the restaurant. Bars that have ferns everywhere are not part of the Chicago tradition of interior design. More suitable Chicago barroom decor includes softball and bowling trophies, hand-printed signs that say, "No Checks Cashed" and somebody taking a nap on the shuffleboard. But we were looking for a fast lunch and the sign outside said the place served food, so we went in and took a table.

Life was a lot different 100 years ago. Back then, only 14 percent of American homes had a bathtub. The average worker earned 22 cents an hour. And 90 percent of the doctors had no college education - but you could buy marijuana, heroin, and morphine at the corner drugstore. Come to think of it, that's not such a big deal. You can buy all that on the corner right this minute, and you don't even have to go inside a store to do it. A hundred years ago the first World Series was played, Sanka was accidentally created when a shipment of coffee got drenched in sea water, and helium was discovered, without which there would be no Goodyear blimp, no balloons on the ceiling at children's birthday parties, and no parents at those parties doing bad Mickey Mouse imitations.

To confirm just how twisted the restaurant scene has become: There's Twisted Tail, a Southern bourbon roadhouse/charcoal grill now across from Head House Square - not to be confused with Twisted Kitchen , a funky-lit diner serving all-American road food at 808 Bethlehem Pike in Colmar, Montgomery County (215-822-7415). How all-American is Twisted Kitchen? It's behind a gun shop. Chef-owner Ernie Pio, who has catered in the region for two decades, offers roast pork and beef sandwiches; soups and chili; seven macaroni and cheese options; and sandwiches ranging from the sublime to the outrageous.

Mustard or ketchup? Plain or extra cheese? That's the new dilemma posed by Monday's rollout of a culinary combination of two of Philadelphia's legendary foodstuffs: The Cheesesteak Pretzel. The hybrid, like a Hot Pocket with golden-brown pretzel dough, hit more than 100 Philly Pretzel Factory stores in the morning. At noon, freebies were offered at LOVE Park - along with packets of ketchup. A line of more than 100 people quickly formed - and stayed that long for about an hour - as samplers started biting or tearing off chunks of pretzel, beef, and American cheese.
