Most anything tastes good folded into the richness of macaroni and cheese, but in the mushroom mecca of Kennett Square, where the fungus is as fresh as it gets, there is a special irresistibility to a gooey slice of macaroni whose lily-shaped pasta tubes are studded with roasted maitakes, shiitakes, and oyster mushrooms. Add an indulgent Mornay sauce with good cheddar and gruyère, plus a little spark of Dijon mustard, and it is almost as if Talula's Table fused the macaroni casserole with a particularly sublime cream of mushroom soup, topped, of course, with crunchy garlic bread crumbs.

The chicken fryers are cold and the signs are dark at Delilah's, the signature soul-food stands at Reading Terminal Market since 1984 and at 30th Street Station since 1993. The stands are closed, apparently as a result of a bankruptcy case in New Jersey, where founder Delilah Winder lives and bases her business. Winder did not return messages left at her office and on her cell phone Tuesday. Her attorneys indicate in court filings that her rents had been paid through March.

Children learn to overeat at a very young age, long before they're old enough to go to the 7-Eleven and buy a super-sized soda and chips. Researchers at Pennsylvania State University found that 3 1/2-year-olds stop eating when they are full, while 5-year-olds tend to eat whatever is presented to them, regardless of whether they are still hungry. "In this short period of time, kids switch from listening to their internal bodily cues for hunger to listening to environmental cues such as portion size," said Barbara J. Rolls, a professor of nutrition.

Emonie, 9, and her sister Toney, 8, are beautiful, intelligent and personable. Although they sometimes argue, they are very close and enjoy the time they spend together. They share many of the same interests, including listening to R & B and rap music, playing with dolls, and going to the movies. They also like to write and draw. Macaroni and cheese, chicken and pizza are their favorite foods. Emonie has reached the age where she is becoming more aware of her appearance and she delights in playing dress-up and polishing her nails.

Geoff Platt scored twice and Jarislov Balastik added two assists for the Syracuse Crunch in a 5-2 AHL win over the Phantoms yesterday at the Wachovia Spectrum. More than 6,000 students in the crowd of 7,433 for the annual School Day Game watched Syracuse end the Phantoms' win streak at four games. The Crunch snapped a five-game losing streak after taking a 3-0 lead in the first five minutes on goals by Mark Hartigan, Ryan Caldwell and Platt. That ended the day for the Phantoms' Martin Houle, who was replaced in goal by Scott Munroe.

Making a long shot into the basketball hoop is cause for celebration in Joshua's life, and he excels at the game. He's also a big fan of baseball, bike riding and roller-skating. Joshua, 11, has suffered neglect and abuse in the past. He receives counseling for the emotional pain he has endured. He's working on about a fourth-grade level in special-education classes, and has an average IQ. He likes math best, and is not that keen on reading. His foster mother says not to worry about his appetite - it's always fine.

If heaven has a deli, it might very well look like Food Tek. This is one serious deli. Other places have wine lists; Food Tek, at 22 S. 2nd St., has a salad dressing list. Fifteen different kinds. Just about any kind of deli food is available to eat in or take out, including hoagies, hot or cold sandwiches, salads, bagels, four kinds of quiche, eight kinds of filled croissants and four kinds of French bread pizza. There are eight varieties of knishes, for heaven's sake. Cheap Eats stopped in at lunchtime for an aptly named Hot Brie Delight ($3.65)

This week, we talk with KHALIL BROWN, Simon Gratz senior quarterback: "Martin" because he's funny and a good actor. Who is your favorite music artist? Usher I play baseball. I like hitting the ball and watching the other team have to run after it. My mom is my role model because she really took care of me and my brothers and sisters. I like Deion Sanders, because he used to talk a lot of trash, but he could also back it up on the field. Macaroni and cheese.
